Insurance costs of lowering a Lupo?


Recommended Posts

Ok so I'm 17, 18 in a few weeks and I'm thinking of buying a lupo as my 1st car.

I want to lower it, would you recommend coilovers?

Also has anyone around my age done this because I want to know what effect it has on insurance.

I'm ancient so most insurance companies let me do anything for a price but at 18:

* Most standard insurance companies don't like lowered cars full stop;

* The ones that do like them like them lowered less than 5cm on springs;

* They all see $ signs when you mention coli overs!

Phone round some of the specialists and see what they say. Don't use comparison websites as most don't carry modifications forward to the parent company resulting in nasty surprises when you either tell them they've made a mistake on you policy details or worst still after an accident and they saw you're not covered!

I got a quote for £1700 lowered with alloys which is the best quote I've had. Do you have and restrictions on lowering like how low I can go?
