    Sorry for what may seem a silly question but I am so out of touch as my car has been off the road for 7 years.

    What company's would you guys recommend for a pretty high modded car with things like a cage,seat,swirl pot in boot etc?

    I don't want to waste my time as in the past as soon as you say cage they say nope!

    Ideally modded classic would be nice!

    Footman james maybe...performance direct?

    Car will only be around 350-370 when mapped I suspect but has quite a large list of bits.

    I am hoping to get on this tommorow if I can.

    Maybe i am being hopeful with classic lol

    The mod list looks worse than it is really just don't want to be ringing loads of companies for a no sorry...

    Maybe the likes of flux and pace ward will be worth a call

    never found a problem really on insurance
    even on heavily modified cars its welded in cages that can be a problem

    Ditto. - I might shop around again this year, but when I first took it out Flux was the best deal I could find... I think they've swapped me to a different underwriter and the deal isn't quite as good any more.

    I'm sure there are people with all the mods declared on Footman James... but maybe not as a classic car.

    Never had a problem with proper roll cages, they hate un rated "show cages" , if the car has been modified as a whole and they class it as properly done you get good and bad points...brake upgrades are good...show cage with full interior and bucket seats without harness is bad.
