Online Insurance Sites Not Recognising G2x B3/D3

Post by churchie386 » Sat Apr 24, 2021 12:19 am

What insurers are G2x B3/D3 owners using?

I'm trying to get some quotes for D3 S, but the latest D3 listed in the menus are F3x BiTurbos (up to 2018).

A large number of people use A Plan the Thatcham Branch only which specialises in matching ALPINA vehicles and insurers. I have been with them 12 years. However, there are alternatives but personally I have not found any to be comparable with my personal circumstances.

E65 B7 4.4 V8 supercharged No 106 (1 of 7 in UK) - purely for pleasure
E 39 523i for winter and track day - leave it anywhere

+1 for A plan insurance. However past year I found an online insurer (One Call) that listed an e46 b3S went with them purely on price. Of course they are not going to provide the same bespoke level of services as A plan but paying a double premium was not justifyable at the time!

I think it is more often than not that online quote engines don’t have many/any ALPINA models listed.

Have you looked through the other threads on Insurance, will give you an idea of companies to try?

Try Adrian Flux, they have been good for me where A plan where not.

I think everyone will have an opinion, but this is my opinion based on looking to insure a car that does not exist in drop downs and so on with online insurance companies.

A tracker may also be a requirement, Sytner do a Trackstar CAT S5 unit. Supply and fit is £549.00 and a three year subscription is a further £399.00.
