upgrades and insurance
Was thinking about this the other day then just read a post from Alfaoxon that has prompted this thread.
Alfaoxon stated that his car went in for some work and the garage found that his car had been remapped by the previous owner, now as Alfaoxon didn't know this then he obviously couldn't tell the insurance company.
So two questions here, first what would happen if his car was to need insurance work, would they refuse to pay out if the remapped was noticed ?
If they would pay out then what's stopping anyone having a remap and saying they knew nothing about it ?
My Spider is waiting for new straight through pipes to be made up and fitted, now I 'should' be telling the insurance company but when I sell it on the new owner may well not know a change has been made, unless you know then you cant declare it.
Is this a loop hole for us the driver or a loop hole for the insurance companies ?
