I've found Footman James can be like that - their quotes seem to change each month, and it's a lottery whether it's in your favour.

I sorted the 16v out last month with Heritage - £135 for the year, 2k miles and track day cover. The next nearest was £180, then £280! When I told them I'd insured it on a normal 12k policy with Swiftcover last year for £199 they went a bit quiet! :lol:

Do you have the Thatcham rated alarm then that Tesco always insist on for their insurance to be valid? :?

Completely ignorant about alarm ratings, both cars (Xsara & BX) have alarms, but never been queried on type. Weird.

I've never had that requirement with Tesco! On some vehicles perhaps, but not all. (not been insured with the Big T for some years mind)
