Getting Alpinas insured isn't too easy - we've talked about it on the m5board before - thought I start a thread here for people to reference

If you can tell us:

Your car
Your age
Location (approx)
No claims discount
Other people insured too
Insured with which company
Direct or through broker
How much is it costing

Let us know

AMAZING!!!

Just renewed the insurance on the Alpina and it is cheaper than last year (despite a few upward changes on the licence and the mileage):

Alpina B3S Touring (2003 model)
Oxfordshire (kept on the drive)
Me: 37, 5 points (even rarer than the car itself and a long story for another posting)
Wife: 37, 3 points (no change there)
Full NCD (protected)
30k miles per year (Class 1 Business use - serious mileage for a serious car)
520 excess (pretty standard for a car from Group 20)
Carole Nash quoted 1119 (Norwich Union policy with discounts for being a member of the BMW Car Club - payable over 4 months with no admin charge)

This compares to Tesco asking for a renewal of 1600 (up from 1200 last year), which increased to 1700 when monthly payments were taken into account!!!!!

The other good quotes I got were from Adrian Flux (1146) and Cheam Insurance Brokers (1139).

All three quotes were for the same policy from Norwich Union - the differences being the amount of commission they were prepared to give away. I went with Carole Nash because they had a free payment scheme over 4 months and the extra 20 saved is another 100 miles of fun driving.

Contact Numbers (if you are interested):

Carole Nash - 0800 298 5555
Adrian Flux - 08700 777 888
Cheam Insurance Brokers: 01737 354 377

Update to my last post...

Carole Nash forgot to protect my No Claims and wanted an extra 120 for the privilege.

Went back to Cheam and they came back to me with 1134 so they now have my business - Thanks to Greg Bridges at Cheam

This may seem like quite a lot of money compared with other postings in this thread, but please bear in mind that I use the car every day and cover over 30k miles a year. I guess the other problem is that because the car is so rare, the depreciation is low and so the "estimated value" at renewal time remains accordingly high. Nice problem to have to live with...

No claims discount - 5 Years driving, 4 Years no claims, N convictions
Other people insured too - Wife (4 years licence, 4 years No Claims, SP30 June 2000)

How much is it costing 1,310 (inlcudes protected NC), 450 xs

Also Tesco and BMW quoted quite close to this figure as well.

Raymondo,

You must be doing well for your age - but I can't help thinking that the premiums would have been a bit lower if you had lied just a little bit

Well BMW Insurance wanted 1,538 for insurance upon renewal and there was little chance of me paying that!

A bit of shopping around with some of the companies listed in this thread and we have:

Your car B10 3.3
Your age 36
Location (approx) London
No claims discount 8yrs
Other people insured too No
Insured with which company NIG via Adrian Flux
Direct or through broker Adrian Flux
How much is it costing 878
