Im comprehensively insured with JustCar.

And recently installed Strut bars & Turbo Back exhaust.

Should I inform them?
Or is it not worth worrying about?

I inform mine of everything, just in case.
It usually costs no more either

Depends, Do you want them to pay up if it all turns sour?

Of course. When put like that, I'll most definetly tell them. I just didn't want to have to fork out more cashola to the bastards.

We are all in the same situation but if there is a way out for them having to pay they will take it

If they can prove they wouldn't have taken on the risk, they have grounds to refuse to pay any future claim. Tell them, and they can either accept the risk, or cancel your policy, and you can insure elsewhere. Much easier to act now.

Remember, what someone tells you isn't necessarily what is in their policy wording, it may just be their opinion. Therefore, always get it in writing, it saves a lot of dramas in the long run.

Tell them... Isn't just car for modified cars?

Last time I was on the phone to NRMA took about 20 min to list all my mods.... Worked out cheaper due to some new security measures I installed and was insured for over 30k....haven't made the call for last lot of 6 speed mods yet

So tell them I don't think those mods will cost you anything ;-)
