I live outer southern subs of adelaide and paying $680 thru AAMI cause I know they will be ok with me putting 20" wheels on and tv's etc as they were with my vx custom wagon (the only ones in the country who would insure the wagon).Domenic said:I read a while back something about insurance for the 300c, but for life of me i cant find it. Anyone got any advice or pointers where to go for insuring our cars?
Hemi57 said:Sleeper, the 300C V6 (yes they call both our 300s here V6 & HEMI "C") is listed at A$54,000 and the HEMI is A$60,000. Both prices are plus taxes and on road charges. So a 300C HEMI with sunroof runs to a total A$69,300 here in Victoria. Some states have different tax and charges so it does vary. BTW, A$1 = US$0.74 exchange roughly at the moment.
SRT8 is not released yet but should be around A$75,000 plus taxes and on roads.

Hemi57 said:Domenic, I found the best quote was from CGU. Arnold Patch checked them out and went with them too. Me, inner SouthEastern burbs ~$900/yr. Arnold, outter Eastern burbs ~$770/year.
They have some good and some not so competitive features, ie. choice of repairers, excess & additional item (windscreen/yr) options but no rating one protection (this needs to be earned while under cover through them).
Did you see the Roadtest on the 300C Hemi in Saturday's Age? Overall good write-up but they quoted RACV at >$1700/year insurance premium :eek1:, which was similar to my quote from them :eek13:.
I am not looking forward to the quote on the SRT8. mfg:

I clicked on new posts since last visit, and didn't look for any header on it. I'll be more carefull next time.

On the mods that CGU would accept, I mentioned bigger wheels, their response was "okay, CGU recommend only 1" bigger", when I said 2" they said that would probably be okay too.
On the subject of the 300C holding it's value, over time it will drop like a stone, same as just about every other car these days however supply and demand will hold values sky high for a while yet, IMHO.
