At some point in the life of every vehicle, it will probably be a good financial move to drop either comprehensive or collision or both from the insurance policy. As vehicles get older and lose value, the expense required to maintain full coverage exceeds the benefit of having it on the policy.
Eliminating comprehensive and collision coverage on an older BMW 530i may save $1,240 annually, depending on the coverage deductibles and the driver age.
