Yep exactly as above, insurers will find any way they can to get out of paying out on a policy so if your car is modified and you haven't declared it you'll be screwed.

If you don't mind me asking how much is your insurance? Didn't think I would be able to get insured on a skyline till I was 25. 21 at the mo

Not being funny but if you cant afford the insursnce then dont do it. In my books that puts you on a par with the assholes that dont bother atall. If you crash there still not going to pay out, which means the person you hit will be screwed aswell.

Erm, I suggest you do one of three things.

1. Don't bother driving it
2. Tell your insurance company and face the charge
3. Detune it untill you can afford it.

Third party would still get a payout I imagine, but I'm guessing they'll come after you for the money!

Nope, he'd be classed as an uninsured driver so nobody would get paid out. What the hell is wrong with some people, if they can't afford it then don't have it. Diddums. Funny that you can afford for it to have been that modified to that extent. It's selfish to just think that if you bend it then that's your problem. What about if you take someone else out with you? They'd lose their car with no payout unless they claim off their own insurance, so either way they're ****ed. Nice one. :rolleyes:

As above, you can't really moan about insurance if you're not paying for half of what you're supposed to. Why not save the £1200 and cancel your policy, it's worth nothing anyway.

And as a side note, the best thing to do if your going to drive around with a policy thats not worth a w*nk because you havent declared mods, would be to spread it across a public forum that police and your insurance company can see. All round top class inteligence.
