    39, £440, Fully comp, ALL mods declared and insured (I.E would be replaced like for like). £250 excess, hire car.

    6 points also and 7 years no claims.

    Another good reason for getting older - I't's better than the alternative.

    The problem with when you are comparing prices for insurance quotes it is very difficult, without seeing the actual policy documents, to verify that the cover is the same.

    erm, 28.....9 yrs NCB, 3 points for failing to give info to police officer when asked (speeding camera, tried blagging that it wasnt me haha). Ł450, Ł250 excess, legal, hire car - Adrian Flux who always come at me with a high quote and always end up doing it less than my best quote (been with em for 6 years)...... Although privilege for the past 2 years have been my benchmark 'cheapest' quote.... a direct line company if im not mistaken

    Spiker, I'm sure you could get a quote cheaper than that, £500 is reasonable but nothing to write home about at age 37 on an S3.

    c16wko, that's bloody cheap for a 21 year old, my insurance on the S3 is around that figure (I'm 21 also) but I've been driving 4 years and have 3 NCB and no points. On my R32 it's just under a grand.

    Play Greenlight and Adrian Flux off against each other, Adrian Flux halved my renewal after getting a sub £500 quote from Greenlight.

    I agree Adrian Flux have always undercut the best quote i have managed to get by ringing round. They give you an alright renewal premium in the hope you will just accept it i think, i always ring round before going back to them and getting them to beat my lowest quote.

    Beat me to it animal, if you went back to Flux they WOULD have beat Greenlight's quote just to retain your business (as they did with me), oh well you snooze, you lose

    I'm with Greenlight. They were £400 cheaper than Adrian Flux for me.
    I'm 26 with 4 years No Claims Bonus, All mods declared (for once) and 3 points (due to come off in April). Fully protected for £592. Think my excess is £300

    I had a chat with one of the managers and they claimed (adrian flux) that they have a seperate policy that they are able to access risks on.....basically if they cant get you the price you want, they take some risk by putting you on their group policy and they pay their premium seperate....you end up with the benefits as if it wasnt a group policy.....easy....it doesnt affectthe consumer at all from what he said...... never really delved into car insurance much behind the scenes, but sounds ok to me

    all depends on which S3 , I got miss quoted on the 210 bhp model and it was over £100 cheaper than the 225 bhp model . Also the area you live in makes a big difference.

    some people on here have had cheap quotes off say green light but when I try them they are double what I pay now ????? Its just a big can o worms.

    My actual premium is £409 + £20 admin from the broker.

    I'm 26 with 6 years no claims, A-Plan seemed to be rather good, Adrian flux pissed me off once to often this year after having been with them for a while, whenever I tried to phone I got put on hold for ages or spoke to total numpties and it was just the last straw after there piss take of a renewal!
