    Dilema - Is it worth it?

    Post  Shane Hudson on Tue Sep 28, 2010 5:45 am

    Hi all,

    As you probably know, I am trying to find how to get my insurance down to the cheapest I can.

    The previous owner put a 1275GT engine into my mini, so I asked Adrian Flux how much it would be if I put in a 998cc and they said £2025, which saves £411.

    So I need to figure out if it is worth it? I will be taking the engine out to repair and paint etc. anyway, so putting a new one in is not much of a bother. I think I can get a 998 engine and gearbox for about £100.

    Is it worth me changing it all about?

    Can you think of a better way to get the insurance down?

    I will be trying Footman James in a minute, wonder how much theirs differs.

    HIC i thought were ok, make sure they know if you have it in a garage or kept off road. work out how many miles you intend to do in it and go for a limited mileage, if you get near the limit they can bump it up for extra cost obviously.
