I'd tell them but be sitting down when you do. I had some aftermarket alloys fitted costing 400 quid. My insurance went up by 300 quid with excess of 650. When I renewed though they agreed to a 250 excess and my insurance went down by 600.

I put some after market RS6 style alloys on my VW Passat. It actually made negligible difference. Was expensive to start with

Well exactly. My renewal was a grand. Cheapest new policy i could find was almost double that.

Do I say it's an aftermarket upgrade?..

Or We're Ti wheels available on the Lusso as an extra during late 2007?...
