    Just wondered who everyone used.I didnt get any cover with the car insurance and need to arrange (just in case,obviously).I know companies like green flag just send out the local recovery firm with their truck,which isnt going to be suitable for my lowered 348.Cheers.

    I've used the AA (had to be recovered twice) very good, now I'm covered under Ferrari's warranty, I think it's Mondial?

    I used to use RAC as I want European cover - £175 per year for two brothers. When my brother emigrated they wanted £158 per year for just me. Go figure.

    I found their guys in a van to be extremely helpful but their UK phone receptionists were a real pain in the a**e.

    I am looking around and found others to be in same price range except Europ Assistance at £59 per year. I will give them a go unless I hear any consistent horror stories.

    Thanks fellas.I was hoping for a consensus,but seems everyone goes their own way.I'll probably go with the RAC simply because I have done before.

    My insuarance company provide Green Flag cover free of charge, but it is limited to 30 miles recovery, and you have to pay the difference to have it taken back to the garage of your choice.

    I also use AA, which for roadside and relay is about £100 per year for me and the trouble-and-strife. Always been superb service from first call to delivery home.
