    I’ve been advised that QBE will continue to cover tesla’s already on their books, but arent taking any new ones.
    I’ll know for sure in about a month.

    I was just quoted $888/y from RACQ.

    • Performance
    • In 4074
    • $650 excess
    • 2 year new-for-old, market value after that
    • All glass, including the roof 1x excess free claim per year
    • Hire car
    • 42yo male only driver, had a bingle in the current car about 3 years ago. Otherwise good record.
    • Combined with home insurance discount
    • 10+y RACQ member

    AAMI now have Model 3 in their Tesla list, but only the SR+ model and a cap of $88,500 price.
    RACT have Model 3 in their online quote tool, but still locks up on the Cylinders question (there is nothing to select), so it cannot proceed to a quote.

    My AAMI quote came in at $1188 keeping the base $66k covered and no window or hire car. (PDS should give replacement for write off within 2 years). Adding windscreen brings it up to $1,261. Increasing the value to the actual purchase price ($73.5k) makes these quotes $1318 and $1391 respectively. Excess is $1320.

    Called RACQ after finding M3 still not on the online quoting tool. It's no longer on their system at all now so they can't quote. Since I called on a Sunday and their underwriting team aren't on duty will find out during the week why they've removed it. I also have Bendigo Bank calling me back during the week for the same reason. Be interesting to see why S & X are still okay but 3 has been removed.

    Can you even take insurance out if you don’t have the VIN?

    Yes you can with most insurance companies. Most of them require you to update them within 15 days of the delivery to update number plate / VIN.

    So, I have a minor update, RACQ won't quote me until the car is available on Australian shores...I guess I'm calling them back in a month after first deliveries of SR+ have number plates on them. Bendigo explained they're a broker and their primary source doesn't list M3 but they'll have a quote for me in a couple of days.
