After many hours of searching and actually speaking to audi they are by far the cheapest(dont go by the online quote actually speak to them).
If you Q is over 30k Chris Knott loses the advantage (this is actually written in his advert so he is not hiding anything)

Hello,
Personally for any kind of insurance i always go to gocompare and moneysupermarket (there are more you can do but these two cover most of the market anyway), and run their quote systems.
Once I have been given a guide on who is the cheapest by their system. I then go to the cashback sites like topcashback and then see who is offering what in terms of cashback. I then base my choice as a compromise on price and the insurers policy and what is covered etc. For my current Q5 insurance I am paying much less than my previous A4.
Also worth looking at tweaking your job description to see if that lowers your costs. I work in communications, so flick between telecommunications engineer, computer engineer etc as my job could be classed as any of these and it does make a difference in your policy costs.

There is an excellent guide on how to do all of this on http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/insurance/compare-cheap-car-insurance if you are interested. I know it sounds like a fair bit of hard work, but it is really worth it when you realise how much you can save.


Hope this helps.
Barry

I've been provisionally quoted ?360 protected fully comprehensive for a policy underwritten by Sun Alliance. I doubt I will get a better quote than that.

This years insurance has cost me ?250 for the policy (fully comp protected ncd) then with ?20 cashback through topcashback means atotal of ?230 for the year. That's on a brand new q5 2.0tdi se. I thought there had to be a mistake when the price came through but it was correct. The insurer was Lv who I've used before and never had a problem with.
I would definitely recommend shopping around, the method I described only takes 30 mins or so and saved me over ?100.

That's insurance for you.
You can't really guarantee any insurer will be cheaper as there are so many different factors involved in their quotes. That's why I suggested doing a lot of shopping around as I'd rather the money was in my pocket and not those of the insurance companies. I only mentioned Lv as that's who were my cheapest on the quote systems.

I'm sure insurance is cheaper for the 2.0 Q5. But ?360 for a near fully loaded 3.0 is pretty good. I was paying over ?500 for the RRS.

But I will try Audi nearer the time. Who are they underwritten by

I went with Audi as they were only £80 more expensive than my existing provider. However, went elsewhere for GAP insurance paying only £150 for 3 years cover compared with the £599 quoted by Audi.

Esure quoted me 206 pounds so looks like I will stay with them again.. Not worth phoning around to find something better and miss out on something like glass cover or claims in years for protected insurance.
