I've decided to go with third-party, fire, theft and windscreen insurance, not full insurance. I did manage to get a significantly cheaper quote from a different company, but based on the fact that this car was written off previously in an extremely minor accident, it is most likely going to be written off again in close to any accident. A relative of mine is potentially going to suffer the same issue with her European car (Mk5 VW Golf).

On top of our car being written off, NZ insurers have a reputation for paying well below what the replacement cost is, so you lose your car and cannot replace it with an equivalent => not worth fully insuring a 15+ year old European car in NZ IMO. So if she does get involved in an accident, I will have to fix it myself or pay for it's repairs myself, but at least I don't lose this wonderful car ... most likely repaired by purchasing a replacement bumper and guard from a wrecked car.

Hope I have made the right decision ... only time will tell.
