Hi all new to all this so please forgive me... Am just about to pick up an st2 with the mountune kit. I was told by the sales people it would make no insurance difference and even when I told my insurance company they said they had never herd of it and so would make no difference please help as I may just cancel the car and get a normal one if it is going to make a big difference, also what does this do to the mpg please?

My first post was deleted please explain to me why please so I can not do the same error again.. thanx

the mountune is recognised by insurance companys as an ST260 dont cancel and buy a "normal" one you would be making a big mistake {in my opinion}

Insured mine as the 260 upgrade, the premium does go up a bit, but I suppose it will depend on your age and location..
Well worth the extra few quid, will give you a massive smile every time you turn the key.. Enjoy

thanx all so far it shows that car dealers do not know what they are selling and it should have been advertised as an ST260... nice car but when I just got the quote it went up from 640 up to 800 an extra 150 quid so will have to see if they have a different one in stock.. shame loved the noise

Can anyone tell me what does this kit do to the mile per gallon please?

have you tried the insurance companys on this site as they are very good and know what they are talking about regarding ST models etc and will ususally do you a good price
as for mpg mine stayed the same under normal driving but suffers a bit if i hammer it everywhere

Got insurance quote from Green light insurance round about £700 inc many extras so happy ish but then it will be so much fun withe the mountune kit all that cool noise... I will fill her up when i pick her up on Sat and have sum fun....

I also see on various websites that you can get the car chipped will this improve mpg or has this been done with the mountune kit?

The Mountune map cannot be altered with another 'chip' and under normal driving conditions you should find it more economical than standard.
