Re: Melbourne SRT Club

They must have out their prices up. Maybe because the our dollar is poor at the moment? Glad I got it when I did!

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Thanks guy's for the feedback on prices.. This one may have to be a Easter present if the prices are right ( would love to see the easter bunny try and deliver a full system to me while also bringing my easter egg without breaking it) and with regards to the cruise I hope so too.. If not I may still cruise down in the mrs car and say hey anyway.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Hi All,

I've put down a deposit on a MY15 which should hopefully be arriving mid~late next month. I'm trying to get some insurance sorted for it and seem to be getting some wildly varying prices and conditions ($1250~$2200). AAMI appears to be head and shoulders better than anyone else at $1250 with additional windscreen cover and roadside assist. They also have a new for old for write off's in the first two years where others seemed to just want to source a similar car of similar age. Only other insurer offering new for old that I have come across is Youi, however they were over $1900. Anyone else I should be looking at?

Looking at the price of tyres in Aus, I don't think my budget is going to be able to keep my SRT in Pirelli's. Even thinking I might replace the Pirelli's straight away and put them in storage until I come to sell my SRT down the track. Any other tyres I should be looking at, or even better has anyone imported from the USA? I'd be probably favouring day to day ride comfort over outright performance.

Finally, my SRT is coming with Goliath wheels where I like the look of the Spider Monkey's. Again, seems to be a large range in price here on Gumtree and Ebay which I am guessing is genuine vs non-genuine parts. Anything I need to be wary of here if I were to look at purchasing a set of wheels?

Thanks in advance

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

There is an insurance thread in the export section, however it varies so much house to house, owner to owner it's useless comparing to what others pay.
GIO Platinum is lifetime new for old replacement.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Thanks for the replies. So weird that there is such a variance in insurance prices for the same thing. Sounds like AAMI for me is the way forward...

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

RACV does mine for $1200 new for old and windscreen.
some have an age clause hidden, no under 35s allowed.

just replaced tyres at 50,000, no Pirellis in Australia was told, $1020 each. 2 month wait

brought Falkens this time at $400 each. not run flats
