    And I'm sure its coming from other insurance companies too. This is a part of the letter they're sending out to all policy holders about cars they will no longer insure:

    There aren't too many cars on here this WON'T cover in some way.

    Gayest exuse ever! If you car has been modified and has a valid up to date safetly inspection, none of the above should even be a valid reason for them to drop you.

    I posted this issues a while ago concerning modified cars and insurance companys. Thing is that if you don't inform them and there is a claim or accident then 1) they may choose not to cover you 2) nail you on insurance fraud.

    Sucks, but look at it this way. If a kid in a civic does a swap to a gsr motor or whatever the power that car has increase dramtically, and hence the rating that car has from the insurance company is for say 98 hp, not 180 hp.

    Am all for it, there will be ways about this, but you will need to pay.

    I fully agree with you there!! I questionned my boss on this, since he's an insurance agent and he said by law your suppose to inform your insurance company or your policy is void. usually if you have your safety inspection, and appraisals for what ever mods you put on your car they will adjust the policy accodingly.

    personnaly i wouldn't blame the insurance companys as much as i would blame the people making strange claims, having unusal accidents etc. There a business, they have to protect themselves. I would like to see how the world worked without insurance.

    Yep. Like someone said on the Ontario board, if you ever fluffed up a claim or know someone who did and didn't say anything you've got nobody to blame.

    I do love the anecdote from the Motorsport Club of Ottawa board where a guy was denied coverage after hitting a deer because his street-legal car that he rallied on weekends had a (FIA spec!) roll cage. If he'd rolled over an embankment and the cage saved his life they still would have denied his claim.
