Subject says it all really, will my insurance go up if I blank the EGR?
This is so true!, they will use any excuse. I don't take any chances and inform them of everything. That reminds me I have just fitted a "New Car Scent" magic tree, I think i'll inform them of that as they will probably refuse to pay out due to visibility LOL:.They can and will use anything to challenge a claim, it's an offence under the Road Traffic Act to not inform an insurance company of any changes from standard. Regardless of if the mod is a contributing factor to the claim the insurance is invalid as you didn't give them the full information.
Yes it seems silly and petty but they really will find ANY excuse not to pay and anything you've not declared can be used against you!
John @ Brentacre specialises in Modified VW's so your are covered for anything with them as long as you declare it T:If it increases the bhp of the engine then it counts as a mod, up to individual insurers if they will charge more tho.
Just called my insurer (Brentacre) and no change to the premium if I did blank the EGR so I prob will as soon as I have time (and dry weather) to get it done.
I know the likelihood of them finding out if I didn't declare it is very low but there still is a chance. I'd rather declare everything and know I'm insured than take the gamble that a clued up loss adjuster (who, lets face it, has the job of avoiding paying out) finding it and not paying out if I ever had to claim.
