Determining the proper premiums for personal auto policies can be tricky business, especially for collision and comprehensive coverages. But it doesn't have to be.

ISOnet — the Internet information service for insurance professionals — contains a complete electronic version of the current ISO Commercial Lines Manual (CLM), as well as historical information back to 1994.
