Have to agree with you, who's your insurer and we can all e-mail them and tell them they're a bunch of chimps.

What the hell do they mean by standard anyhow, I think the wheels are standard, they are round what more do they want.IndieBlueOne said:(WARNING - IRRELEVANT COMMENT - LMB, WHEN YOU GETTING YOUR CAR??)
The 17" S-spokes are an BMW factory "option" not an accessory or a modification. LMB's quote should be based on the value of the car purchased from the dealer. My forester comes with 16" Alloys from the factory. I don't pay a premium for these wheels. I did however pay an slight premium for my 16" rims on my Astra as these were fitted by me.smiffy said:Trust me I work in Car insurance & a modification is classed as something that isnt standard to the car. This applies to alloys, engine & bodywork mods & even salt, pepper & chili packs
