Greenlight don't charge for modifications, and there's no penalty for adding them mid policy, unless they take you over a certain bhp. You get a discount if you're on the mx5nutz forum as well.

They were always competitive for me - about the same price as Admiral charge for a standard car (although I gave up with admiral after trying to explain what throttle bodies were).

You could try the Club Partners Adrian Flux https://www.adrianflux.co.uk/mx5oc/
There is a dedicated line for members on that page.

Or you can also try the Club partner Lancaster - though not sure they are overly mod friendly http://www.lancasterinsurance.co.uk/car ... ners-club/ they have some good introductory deals on joining the club to obtain discount also.

http://www.keithmichaels.co.uk

and http://www.footmanjames.co.uk/mx5-owners-club can surprise also.

But Flux can be pretty decent and if they are not the cheapest offer price matching and other insurance options.

I'm with Footman James.

Not the cheapest, but still great at £142 - got a discount for MX5OC membership.

Agreed value certificate, needs to be garaged if at home between 10pm and 6am. 3,000 mls per year.

I have added lowered suspension and change of alloys and no increase or charge for change of policy.

Sky at one point were lowest, now Greenlight; I have modified cars with both of them. They go through cycles were they drop prices to get market volume and then creep back up once they have a name/reputation so you need to change every 4-5 years... IMHO.

But go cheap and now every change is a chargeable item and the refund from stopping the policy is tiny .. and you cannot suspend it (as they used to) .. so pretty much once you have started a policy you have to keep it running for the 12 mths.
