That is awful!! I still carry comp & collision on my car. I have a zero deductible for comp (which would cover fire). It doesn't cost that much and it is money well spent.

Depends..... they cover aftermarket stereos... but they may not cover 200hp worth of upgrades as it then "is no longer the same consistancy of car initialy insured". If you go modding the hell out of your car let your insurance agent know. They may not cover it, or only cover it in stock form.
