    Default Word of Caution Re Classic Insurance

    Hey guys,

    I had a leading classic car insurance company on to me this morning regarding a claim one of their policy holders has made.

    The person in question had E30owners listed as their classic car club along with a membership number.

    The person was not a paid Premium Member on here (required for classic insurance) and the number they gave wasn't associated with any account

    Because of this it now looks like the insurance company wont be paying out for them!

    Yeah drop me a PM if you need it or a letter as you are a premium member.

    I don't mean to 'scare' anyone by posting the above, its just we all know what a lot (not all) of insurance companies are like these days when it comes to getting out of claims!

    Does anyone know what the relevance of being a club or forum member has in relation to car insurance?

    I have no problem supporting this site on the pm mail box factor alone, let alone seeing whats happening with the local cars. Just outa curiosity how much of a discount does the club membership get some of you that have used it? 15 euros is nothing these days and the membership discount on insurance is just an added bonus on an already good deal.

    Aplogies if I seem to be straying off topic, but I assume that a good percentage of people here have classic insurance arranged through First Ireland. Has anyone had any issues regarding glass replacement?
