We wanted you to be one of the first to know about exciting changes to Footman James’ classic vehicle insurance. Footman James has conducted intensive research with customers and some of its strategic vehicle clubs in helping to design the cover available.
As part of the acquisition of Footman James by Towergate Insurance Group at the start of this year, Footman James has teamed up with insurance group Ageas to bring the products to life.

Ageas has the in-depth knowledge of our market and understands the passion that comes with owning a classic car – as well as the time and investment needed to restore and maintain a vehicle.

Budget 2014

There's good news for classic car owners in the 2014 budget. From April 2014, the classic car exemption from VED will begin rolling from 40 years, with cars built before January 1974 eligible for a zero-rated tax disc. Then, from January 2015, the formerly fixed cut-off, will become a rolling one.

Dyane Inner Rear Wings - Order Now! PDF Print Email

Citroen Dyane inner rear wing replacement panelsSPOG has been working very hard over a number of years to bring this project to life, and we are very happy to announce that the first batch of 100 pairs of Dyane inner rear wings is expected to be ready for shipping in October 2012.

These panels have been designed and manufactured from scratch, including commissioning all the design drawings and custom machine tooling required to manufacture them. SPOG has gone to great lengths to ensure that they are as good as (in fact, we believe better than, as they are of a thicker gauge steel) the original Citroën part, which is no longer available. They have been extensively quality tested, and are assured to fit perfectly.

This item is eagerly awaited both in the UK and abroad. They are available to order now, so don't delay!
NOTE: This price is only for the first batch - regrettably, subsequent production runs will cost more (this is down to our suppliers, not SPOG).
