Audi uk told me that many other insurance companies are cheaper cos they don't guarantee using audi parts hence invalidating the audi warranty. Has anyone had any problems with other insurance companies refusing to conduct repairs using audi parts?

I'm often asked questions like "How much is it for a 23 yr old on a...?" or "I've been quoted £xxx. Can you beat it?".

As you can appreciate there's a lot more detail required before we can offer a quote. So the best thing is to call us on the Chris Knott freephone number (0800 917 2274) rather than PM-ing me or posting the question on the forum.

I know you're after a quick answer but there really isn't one for these types of question. If you call us our guys will make sure you have all the info you need to make a decision about switching to us.

Thanks.

Oh, and make sure you quote the forum's unique code to make sure you receive the full benefit :)

Do Chris knott charge any extra for minor power increase? considering a TMC box or Chip to get to ~150 bhp. haven't had chance to ring them yet, and i'm sure someone put on here that they weren't charged any extra for it.

It's going to depend on which insurer you're with for a start. The best thing is to give us a call 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477.

We're running a promotion at the moment for new customers (Chris Knott SALE and iPad Mini 16Gb prize draw) but it got me thinking about what we have to offer existing clients too.

If you become a Chris Knott client, you get the following and there's no time limit:

Loyalty Rewards
£20 OFF our best car insurance quote (on top of any other savings we can achieve for you) when you bring 2nd and subsequent cars to us.
£20 OFF our best home insurance quote if you have one 'live' car policy with us at time of quoting.
£50 OFF our best home insurance quote if your household has 2 or more 'live' car policies with us at the time of quoting.

Recommend a Friend Scheme
£20 OFF your own renewal for each friend or family member you refer to us and who goes ahead with the cover. There's no limit to the number of people you can recommend and no limit to the number of £20 discounts you can receive against your car or home insurance renewal. By renewal we mean when you stay with us for a further 12 months. Just get you friends and family to mention CODE: 480 plus your CK reference when they call.

Hope some of you can take advantage of this.

Recent Feedback
from across our 200+ club/forum partners:

"Just renewed my DelSol insurance through Chris Knott for an excellent price. So nice to talk to a real person and discuss the details properly instead of through some website." Alison, DelSol UK

"Bought my Z4 this week and went to Chris Knott at the weekend for insurance. They matched the best price I could get elsewhere (£400) and also sorted multicar cover for my other car at as good a quote as anyone else. Very efficient and friendly." GazDerby, Z4 Forum.

"Absolutely awesome! Just saved me £300 from my renewal quote! Top job!" Sparkz786, ClubPolo

"Just want to say thanks to Milton at Chris Knott Insurance for getting me a great quote so I can get the car tomorrow. Undercut GoCompare's best quote by £25 and beating my existing insurer (MoreThan) premium by just about halving it! I'd gone off phoning brokers after a few experiences of being offered quotes which were massively over the odds but this has restored my faith." swhibley, C4Owners

"I dealt with Martin really polite and helpful. Will get my business next time, makes a change to speak to someone who wasn't reading from an auto-cue as well." Trucker99, Z4 Forum

This month in particular has seen a great response from forum members to our flexible pricing strategy. It's so successful that we're signing up around 38% of all quotes offered - that's better than one in every 3 quotes (almost 4 in 10).

I also just wanted to remind you that there are only a couple more weeks left until we close our Prize Draw for an iPad Mini. All you need to do to enter is ask us to quote for your car insurance before 31st May.

Please give us a try if your insurance is due soon - others are saving £££s and the chance to WIN an iPad Mini. But that's not all we have to offer...

If there were 4 comments that best sum up the benefits of our service, it's these, received in recent weeks:

"Mine's all sorted signed and sealed with CK. Very quick and easy and most importantly, an efficient/professional service. Compared to the original renewal from Churchill, CK were over £300 cheaper. Compared to the cheapest quote from the usual sites, CK were around £50-£100 cheaper." Akash - VWAudi Forum

"Many thanks for all your help - it makes the whole process much less of a chore dealing with a friendly, helpful & professional human being rather than a faceless website! Also I appreciate the fact that Chris Knott advertise a 'proper' number so that it doesn't cost a fortune calling from a mobile. I will definitely be recommending Chris Knott to anyone who asks." D Birtles, Recommended by a friend

"Chris Knott have just given me an absolute steal of a price. I can't tell you or you'd not take this post seriously! I only left them as they had a funny uncompetitive year but they are back and I am very happy to be with them instead of some random internet only cowboys." ofnpanad, AlfaOwner.com

"Well, I've just taken out my S-Max insurance with Chris Knott, and I have to say that Rebecca did a fabulous job of finding me a great quote, recognised my lack of computer skills and talked me through everything. How nice it is to talk with someone who is professional and patient. For the first time, speaking with insurance companies today, I actually felt that I was being valued as a customer. Any problems or concerns and I only have to call back, and chances are I can speak to the same person again. Well done Chris Knott Insurance for restoring my faith in customer service." Fezzer, SMax Owners Club

You should call Chris Knott Insurance for a car quote and to benefit from a better level of service. Find out how much you could save and, if calling before 31st May, get free entry into our iPad Mini draw. Hurry - not long left for the draw!!

We'll be running another great competition via our Facebook page soon - so please LIKE the Chris Knott Facebook page. In addition, there'll be a draw for a year's FREE UK Breakdown Cover once we reach 500 LIKES. Don't miss out!

With less than a week to go until our iPad Mini draw closes I'd just like to ask you to give us a call for a quote if your car insurance is due in the coming weeks. If you're due in June we can quote you as soon as you like - but to be in with a chance to WIN an iPad Mini 16Gb you should call us by THIS FRIDAY (31st).

We're currently signing-up more than one in every 3 quotes because we reward club/forum membership by going that bit further to try and win your business. Will the next one be you?

Call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) to find out how much you could save with Chris Knott.

As you know, we complemented our Spring Sale by offering an iPad Mini as a prize draw for anyone who asked us for a quote during the set period.

I'm really pleased to announce the winner as Kirsty Porto of Wisbech, Cambs. Though we were unsuccessful with her quote this time around we're delighted that she has won and hope she enjoys many hours' fun on the iPad.

That's the spring draw over with for now but other offers will follow throughout this our 30th Anniversary year!

Competition on Facebook
LIKE us on Facebook to make sure you're told about an exciting competition we'll soon be running especially for those who love their cars.

Great rates continue
Finally and most importantly, we're not calling it a SALE anymore but our rates continue to reflect our determination to help as many car club/forum members as possible to get the best deal. Couple that with the high levels of broker service and support you'll receive and you can see why we're the right choice for car enthusiasts.

Remember, we've been looking after the insurance needs of car club members for 30 years now. We're confident we can help many of you but you need to pick up the phone.

Call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 (01424 200477 for mobiles) to find out how much you can save with Chris Knott Car Insurance.

Please remember to include Chris Knott in the mix when searching for a car insurance quote.

For good drivers, we can often beat your best alternative quote when we know what it is - dis-regarding what the system says we should be quoting. That's because our insurer partners trust us and allow us to quote what we need to to get them good quality business.

This year so far we're signing up even more forum members than last year so we must be doing something right!

Call Chris Knotts and we'll find you the best deal based on your individual needs.

"Ian insured with Chris Knott a couple of weeks ago and reported the best deal he's ever had, thanks guys" said Alfanutz admin, Zender156.

High for the industry, 78% of Chris Knott's clients are renewing this year too, which means we are pretty consistent in our pricing - not looking to change the rate if the risk is the same as last year.

It's true there have been a few comments regarding the length of time it takes for us to answer calls. But we're pleased to say that we've listened to feedback and have now made it easier for you to get through to the quoting team. They were previously handling other types of enquiry but we're now fielding those enquiries to a separate, dedicated team. You should notice a great improvement.

Pick up the phone today if you're due in the next few weeks and see how much Chris Knott can save you.

Just goes to show it pays to shop around.

Has anyone actually got a better quote from Audi than, say, confused.com? My Audi quote was 3x the cost.

Hi

Renewal next month so looking at quotes using brokers, comparison sites and will try Audi. What is annoying is that quotes differ so much from what is effectively the same company - Direct Line, Privilege and Churchill for example. A simple chart like the one I saw years ago of who owns who would be useful.

Another variable is checking that Multi Policy for two cars is actually cheaper than two individual policies. More time pressing keys and telling people my age, postcode, car, job................

Chris Knott VIRTUAL SHOW & SHINE

Here's a chance for members to show off their cars and their photo skills as we launch the Chris Knott Virtual 'SHOW & SHINE' over on our Facebook page.

All you need to do is LIKE our page - Chris Knott Facebook - and post a pic of your car on the page.

There's a PRIZE for the winning entry and another one for the best runner up.

The WINNER will receive a tasty Nikon D3200 + 18-55mm VR lens kit* worth £370.

The best RUNNER UP will win a much coveted 3LT X0a Tim Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod* worth £130.

The closing date for entries is 31st October 2013 - so 3 months for you to get the creative juices flowing and come up with something if you haven't already got an image to post up.

Your car could be stock or modified - there are no restrictions in that regard.

Be inventive. Remember, unlike a traditional Show & Shine, this is a photo comp so we will be looking for the 2 photos that show cars off best but please keep it clean (the photo)!!

It doesn't have to show the whole of your car - it just needs to have a car in it. Think about location, lighting, angles, etc.

The pic can be anything amateur - an Instagram photo, straight camera-phone pic or something a bit more serious and we're happy if you want to use effects.

The only stipulation is that it must be your own photo and your own car (not an image nicked off the internet).

Have a look at the photos we've added to our FB page and commented on to see the sort of images that we've appreciated in the past.

We're really looking forward to seeing your pics as you post them. There's no limit to the number of different photos you can post.

*Equivalent value prizes may be substituted if these models are not available at time of judging.

SUBJECT: CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE now covers Northern Ireland

The subject line says it all really so please pick up the phone and ask us to quote if you live in the province - we now have an insurer who will offer you competitive cover.

Couple this with the recent age relaxations and you should see that we're doing all we can to help as many of this forum's members as possible.

We're currently signing up 1 in every 2 quotes because our rates are so good for the majority and we often beat the price comparison sites, especially if we know what your best alternative quote is - we can use it as ammo to negotiate a lower premium for you.

Our staff are not on commission so they get their buzz from seeing how much they can save you, rather than how much they'll earn.

Please call 0800 917 2274 and the forum's unique code to ask our guys to help you get your annual insurance bill down.
