When to buy liability coverage only
There is no set guideline to eliminate full coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
For example, let's pretend your Audi S6 replacement value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company would pay you is $3,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premium cost is more than $300 annually to have full coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
There are a few situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not recommended. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you are required to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should keep full coverage on your policy.
These discounts can lower your car insurance quotes
Car insurance is neither fun to buy or cheap, but you may qualify for discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Many of these discounts will be applied automatically when you get a quote, but some may not be applied and must be asked about before they will apply.

It may be expensive, but it's not optional
Despite the potentially high cost of Audi S6 insurance, buying auto insurance serves an important purpose.
First, almost all states have minimum liability requirements which means you are required to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance coverage if you want to drive legally. In New Mexico these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if you bought your S6 with a loan, it's most likely the lender will force you to have comprehensive coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you let the policy lapse, the bank will be required to insure your Audi for a much higher rate and require you to reimburse them the higher price.
Third, insurance protects your vehicle and your assets. It will also pay for medical transport and hospital expenses for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you cause an accident and are sued. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, comprehensive and collision coverage will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance outweigh the cost, especially when you need to use it. In a recent study of 1,000 drivers, the average customer is currently overpaying as much as $700 annually so you should quote your policy with other companies at every renewal to ensure rates are inline.

Auto insurance agents in Albuquerque come in two varieties
When searching for a good insurance agency, you should know the different types of agents that you can choose from. Albuquerque agents can be described as either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive. Both types of agents can handle insurance, but it's good to learn why they differ since it may influence your agent selection.
Independent Insurance Agencies or Brokers
Independent insurance agents are not locked into one company so they can write business amongst many companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. If they quote lower rates, your agent can switch companies and the insured can keep the same agent. If you are comparing insurance prices, we recommend you get rate quotes from a couple of independent agencies to ensure the widest selection of prices.
