I have mine through my Barclays current account. Only used it once. RAC bloke turned up, diagnosed knackered clutch slave cylinder, couldn't source one locally so got a low loader out and took it to TGA in Wolves.
Couldn't have asked for better service tbh.
Is the power of love worth the pain of loss?

Don't get me wrong, I think the AA have been good. Apart from one issue about 8 months ago I would say over the last 15yrs of membership they have been superb, in fact I tend to rave on about their membership in particular the parts and labour cover. However having heard various stories on various forums its obvious they are all cost cutting and trying where possible to get out of recovering people.
So I'm just trying to address this before I fall fowl to it myself. Honestly I would have a major sense of humour failure if I had a unrepairable puncture in my Exige and the AA refused to recover me home because they think they can force me to have a mobile tyre fitter out, charge me £150 for some chinese crap, below budget tyre that I'll effectively have to throw away when I get home 6hrs later!!!!
So, I want to know a way to 'disable' the Exige to force a recovery home. Maybe a hidden fuse somewhere? A sensor I could unplug? Anything? Just something that they are unlikely to find unless they were a Lotus mechanic in a past life, something where they'd have to recover me. I'm not trying to screw them, just trying to not be screwed myself!
