This seems to be the case here, too. Footman James must have become very cautious recently, I dont think I was able to get a single quote from them recently.


Thats probably my fault. I must have started more than 10 policies with them and cancelled them in the cooling off period.

Anyone got a part number for an XU10 non turbo tensioner? Looking on eBay shows more than one...which is no help at all.

 

What injection system manufacturer is it?  There were 3 different flavours on the XU10 2 litre. Very early was magnetti marelli ( I know this as we've got one and bits for it are massively difficult to find)  then I think it was the usual suspects of bosch and lucas on the others, although I might be wrong on manufacturers. It might mean that fitment of belts, pulleys etc was different. Just a though, might be worth asking on the XM forum (not facebook but the actual forum)

I'll be honest, I have no idea. The whole thing is a bit stressful as the garage seem to be relying on me for the bits... and the original tensioner is apparently toast.They keep mentioning that it's rusty, and it did seem sat at a very funny angle when I saw it a week or so ago, so I'm hoping that's not a sign the rear subframe is wrecked. Do these suffer odd rear wheel lean when rotten?

You would be so much better off with a trade policy. As has been said you are ultimately trading them on regardless of whether they are profit/loss. To give you some idea I pay £1100 fully comp WITH nationwide breakdown recovered back to home (included this just incase anything were to happen to the truck) this also includes high performance so am covered on anything from a beetle to a Bugatti Veyron. I am 28

More importantly you will be saving admin fees everytime you add/remove cars. I am able to text the reg and a car is added in under 30 seconds

No, if the rear wheels lean, it will be rear suspension arm bearings. Not a hard job for a garage with a lift. Arm bearing kits are about 40 quid per side last time I got some.

Dont you need to be a business owner to get a trade policy?

No. Declare yourself as part time trading from home.

Whs^ but trade policies are through the roof these days too. For me anyway. I get quoted around 2 grand for no high performance, no trade plates, under 12 cars a year.

I am a business owner but all you would state to them in your case would be that you are a part time trader from home.

If they ask for proof of sales then get creative with a pad and pen...
