Nice, big improvement matey and I like the colour. Now I'm not one for big mods but a nice set of OEM Fiat 17's and some eibach springs will make it look the nuts

Thanks.

I'm insured with Insure The Box which is no mods what-so-ever.

Plus, It wouldn't go up my driveway any lower.

re: 1.4 Orange Active Sport, No Longer Original FIAT!

Are Fiat wheels a mod? Surely it's a manufacturer part therefore not strictly a mod? I've just rec'd my 18" Abarth SS wheels and I don't think I need to tell my insurer?

Yep, I phoned and asked and they said it has to be manufacturer fitted at time of production to the vehicle.

re: 1.4 Orange Active Sport, No Longer Original FIAT!

That sucks, get a new insurer I say. The one I've learnt about insurance is that if someone will give you a cheap quote then so will someone else!

Infect I save around 40 a year just by playing them off against each other

Tried everywhere and I just can't afford anywhere else,

This with InsureTheBox costs 3200 for 6000 miles, then 400 for every next 1000 you go over - working out at 4800.

Cheaper than the others though.

Really that much. I could insure a Ferrari for half that and I'm only 26!

re: 1.4 Orange Active Sport, No Longer Original FIAT!

thats really **** tbh

Do you think you will keep going over 1000 mile? I know I would, do ~ 1200 each month.

Could you really not find anywhere cheaper

If you don't mind me asking Dom, how old are you? Got any NCB? Been driving long? etc

I'm 18, no NCB, driving a year, 1 fault claim that I didn't have a choice about - (guy pulled out of a line of stationary traffic as I was crossing and hit my wing.) It wasn't my fault but insurers basically said 'admit it now or we're cancelling your insurance'.
