Hi people.
My brother is considering buying an imported Nissan. His current insurer is AAMI, but they have told him that they do not insure imported vehicles. I know a lot of forum users out there have grey imports - can anyone give feedback about insurance? Thanks in advance!

You don't say where you are in Aus.
In Qld my Terrano is insured with Suncorp but I was insured through Torque (a broker).
Suncorp charge a large excess ($1000) but the premium is OK.
One of the annoying quirks of imports.

NRMA insures my Terrano but they will only do market value not agreed value
Cost me $600 a year, insured as a business vehicle. It is cheaper for private use.

AMMI have insured my ex NZ ex Jap import without any problems and carried out a small claim willingly, in fact they were a lot more helpful than my insurers in New Zealand.

Thankyou all for your input. Just another thought for anyone insured with AAMI. I know a guy who has a very nice custom ute which was badly damaged in the Sydney hailstorms last week and which was covered by AAMI. He had AAMI's lifetime no-claim bonus, but has now been told that he will lose the lifetime no claim bonus because his vehicle is classed as a commercial vehicle.....!
