So im speaking to this Asian lady on the phone getting a quote...

I say "its a nissan skyline GTST"

She says "so its a single turbo 2.5ltr car?"

I say "yes"

She says "with manual transmission and runs on petrol"

I say "no its an automatic"

She says "erm..... {long pause}..... are you sure?"



WHAT THE FOOK!!!! haha

What a strange question to ask!

I tried to get a quote from Direct Line, they wanted over £1000 FC, must have cat 1 alarm/imobiliser, tracker and be garaged. WTF.

Got insured with Adrian Flux half the price.

I was only trying my luck anyway as Aplan have quoted me £870 fully comp (protected) and I wont beat that. Just couldnt believe the question!

In retrospect when asked if it was a manual that ran on petrol i should have said "its an auto that runs on hopes and dreams" :p

I think a lot of insurance companies take you through the process only to say they don't insure imports, modified cars etc, just to get your personal information so they can sell it to 3rd parties..... :D

It doesn't pop up on the screen in front of her, thus it doesn't exist. Think about it, she's stuck in Bangalore somewhere and has most probably never seen a Skyline, let alone will she know anything about it.

I understand that - but asking if I am sure is just plain stupid... she could have said "oh its not on our system" rather than assume im a numpty that doesnt know the difference between a manual and auto :)

either way it made me laugh
