Insurance contract with annual notice (Jährliches Kündigungsrecht) -practical issues

Hey guys, can anyone point me to any useful hints (may be in German, but not too long )

1. I decided to terminate my car insurance contract, finding it too expensive - and sent by the end of September'12 a German-written notice (Kündigung), as my contract included "Jährliches Kündigungsrecht" point (seems that it is not always the case - check your insurance policies!). The reply was that "there is no legal basis", but then, I kept on asking for a date and reminding the notice clause and to them and got the reply that the contract will be over in Dec 13. So it means - paying an overpriced thing for 16 months more...

2. One of other reasons for quitting this insurance was the letter increasing the premium "because they make an error". Is it normal and can it be a reason to terminate the contract (like eg with Krankenkasse) and at what notice period?

Will be grateful for the hints, merci vielmals !

aaa... I forgot the question for 1.: is the whole 16 months "stuck-in-a-ripoff" thing legal? If so - a pity on my side, as they seem no signs of looking for a compromise...

(oops, dear Admins - please move it to "Insurance", I have not noticed this section before - sorry...)
