If it were me I'd just drop in and chat with them.  For one you'll be able talk with a knowledgeable person, if not the boss there.  I went in and had a chat and the insurance was done even though the car was still in the container and it was going to be driven on UK plates for a while.  That Ferrari stuff is pure cr*nonsense*ap. 

Which state are you in ?

Did you tell them the car isn't on bogan soil yet?  That's probably a factor, it might have to wait until the car has passed all ADRs and is road legal.

+1. 

Are you planning to garage it properly?  Will it be kept in a high risk area? Shannons insure a lot of Ferraris to people who have never owned them before so something isn't right here.  Of course, if you have made other past non-motor claims that were debated at the time that will also affect your ability to gain insurance.

No reflection on the current situation, but insurers will often claim a rejection is for reasons other than the real one - to be polite.

hi..garaged in a high security garage with video surveilllance in a very low risk area.  No previous insurance claims. Who do you guys insure with? What sort of premium should i expect to pay?  I'll wait a couple of weeks and do the ring around again.  Any tips/advice on owning a TR?  What should i look out for.  Any common problems?  We have 2 Merc ML in our fleet and I can tell you all the common problems on these.  Is the TR in the same boat?

My Gallardo was insured for market value with Shannons and I was paying about $4K from memory.  Are you insuring in your own name with only named drivers garaged at home with limited kms? Or through your company?

Well, you certainly sound like you are doing everything right.  I would get along to the Shannon's stand at the Motor Show (you are in Melbourne, right?) and ask them again in person.
