Any drive a RHD OPEL/opel Zafira?

Hi, does anyone drive an OPEL zafira - indeed any opel car? I am talking about a regular - no mods, upgrades or anything fancy. It seems that this vehicle is deemed as an import, and as such insurers either won't touch it or will if you will accept double the quote for a Vauxhall. thanks

no reason for it. identical to vauxhall afaik. just another example of rip off ins companies.

Well it is an import. No Opel dealerships in the UK.

If it is a right hand drive Opel then it will have been imported from the ROI, probably through Northern Ireland. I am unsure of the exact specification but it will be the same as a UK specification, although it may have been modified to run on fermented spud juice and Guinness.....................

Or possibly Cyprus or Malta.

Specifications are usually different to UK specs.

Possibly someone has just changed the badge, it is shame that it is an Opel, ( Vauxhall ) they are just about the only car maker that re-brands stuff for the UK market.

I would keep trying different insurers, I managed to insure a Mazda 323 that was an import for the same as a UK spec. one, I cannot remember which company.
