Well it's that time of year again.  LV who used to be fairly mod friendly have upped my quote to over £600... however, Esure who didn't use to be mod friendly have covered me for £430 including business use and euro cover and a lower excess.  Fairly happy with that.

Mine doesn't renew for a while. But last year they tried to put mine up £100 as I change4d from a Fiesta ST to the GTi. Called them up, the helpful woman put my details through as a new quote, said it would be £50 cheaper. So technically saved myself £150 for a quick 10 min phone call. Always check comparison website and get them to price match or leave

Also, best quotes usually come in around 28 day before renewal. I did that last year and checked again a couple of weeks later. It certainly does go up!

Definitely, Esure mailed me with a £400 renewal quote. After a quick call I got it for £280 including declaring the mods I'm planning in the coming year.

Mine is due shortly. On the upward trend now because of age! so dreading the quote for the two cars. Any insurers more age friendly than others?

I just renewed mine last Friday, using the classic 21 days in advance saving method

I've got a 2018 7.5 R wagon with Revo stg1  / Revo Intake / Eibach springs & spacers = £359 inc total loss from Adrian Flux.

I had got it down to £324 with Admiral but that didn't inc total loss/Gap which was £100 extra.

Just renewed mine - £220.

46 year old, with 3 points - 2019 GTI PP, no mods.

The caveat being my annual mileage pre-Covid was 12k (mostly commuting) but is now a mere 3k.
