He may have problems as Ford Insure are underwritten by Aviva. As far as i am aware Aviva don't allow modification.

Yeah be careful on this, it states ford cover modifications that don't effect Quote "TOP SPEED" or "BHP" yet when i asked about fitting ebaichs the woman on the phone asked her supervisor who said no as it effected handing allowing for me to carry greater speed into corners.

So basically you can change a spoiler or body kit etc or change the alloys but anything that alters performances is not allowed.

Well done for doing it! I went from a Mazda 3 MPS, but the
has more character.
If you do mod it check out the insurers on the forum, I've remapped and altered my air intake.....£400 fully comp and protected.
Enjoy.

Welcome,

Just think of all the money you're gonna be saving by not buying oil for your RX-8! The ST will be better on fuel too!

Cheer's guys

As someone quoted, I think Royal and sun alliance are the underwriters. And power mods may be hard to insure, saying that, I can live without a power increase for a year. I think I'm right in thinking small interior and exterior mods should be ok.

I have been trying to source a set of mats, I had a quick word with the sales guy, and he said they were an extra, to be purchased when buying a brand new car, I can't believe Ford don't offer a set of ST mats for the general public to buy!!!!
