All UK comprehensive policies will cover this, unless you've been so grossly negligent or reckless that you've clearly invited the damage (i.e. driven it into a river).eltel said:What about MINI insurance...does it cover water coming in through the grille/bonnet scoop and destroying the engine?
There are some posts about this in other threads (sorry, can't remember whereabouts so you'll have to hunt ).eltel said:What about MINI insurance, i.e. the one provided by BMW specifically for MINI.
Who was the insurer? Just wondering for future reference as I'll have no no-claims when my Cooper S arrives due to driving company cars for the last three years.batemano said:The MINI Insurance seemed to be very expensive. I had quotes of £2000 for the ONE and £3000 for the Cooper, and this was with 1 years no claims discount. In the end I payed £1100 to insure my ONE.
I was insured through The Insurance Shop at my local Asda. I think it is underwritten by Churchills.Llama said:

Also if anyone else has any top tips for insurance then feel free to let me know!
Elephant are cheap but in my opinion only seem worth getting a cheap quote from in order to get a price match off someone else, 'Internet only' insurance seems dodgey to me especially when you have to fork out 60p a min on the phone if you want to call them! This in combination with the fact that the site was dreadfully slow didn't inspire me too much if I ever had to make a claim.An_S_4_Me said:I used Endsleigh 17-40 insurance for my current car, so did my brother, we both managed to get them to match the price that Elephant.co.uk were offering, they are very open to a bit of haggling and are underwritten by Pinnacle Insurance.
I am dreading my quote, I am 23 with no no claims bonus (1/2 way through my 1st year on my own insurance!) But hey, I want the car soo much, oh well Sh*t happens!
Andy, was from Elephant as well, looks like we are both in the same boat, buying a car and probably going to get stung on insurance!An_S_4_Me said:Cheers Llama, makes me feel a bit better
P.S. Who did you get your Elise insurance quote from?
