    Was looking at them, got a quote of £788.53 for an 07 S3.

    Though i was unsure about this:
    "Quote Subject to you having owned, drivin and insured a comparable performance car."

    as im going from a standard 1.4 golf to either an A3 170 or an S3

    that bit I cant help you with sorry

    i did find them very helpful and they were over £100 cheaper than other insurers and I have a very comprehensive policy

    best thing to do is to ring them and speak to them

    Am with Sky. They are great! Not the cheapest but by far the best customer service and extremely low excess. Think £100 compared to minimums required on price comparison sites.

    I've been with Admiral for about 5 years now as friendly with up to 6 mods and always price match cheaper quotes. I'm 38 with full NCD and pay £399 for a 2012 S3 but £70 of that is the price I pay for having a 25 yr old girlfriend

    Looking at this, I have got such a good price for the S3. I would have had it cheaper as well but I lost 9 months of NCB when switching policy from Aviva to Sainsburys

    Elephant (I Know, I know) - £1070 // 07 S3 Stage2+ / 22 years old / 0 NCB (been out of the country + not driving for 2 years so lost my previous NCB)

    I've heard some nightmare reviews about Elephant/Admiral Group but they've been pretty good so far.

    Haven't had to make a claim, so can't really judge one company against an other, but I'm with Admiral as they've always offered me the best deal (apart from the first year with Direct-Line, who were pretty rubbish for allowing modifications).

    I'm in SE26 and parked in a private car park next to my building - I used CTM to find the cheapest insurance whilst I was shopping for my car and found that even though 2 cars are exactly the same year/spec the insurance can differ by up to £200 when putting in the reg... not too sure why.

    Brentacre were brilliant for my previous car and not too bad for the A3 either. 25 year old female, 4 years NCB, £490.

    It's slightly more expensive than my previous MK2 Leon TFSI, but only because the A3 is a newer car.

    My insurance has been really weird for the past few years.

    My old modified mk4 Golf, cheapest I got was £1500 with Brentacre.

    Bought the S3 and it halved with Aviva, £760 - but Brentacre wanted to charge me £1700+!! Crazy considering they're meant to be performance car friendly.

    2 years NCB, 25, accidentent in Jan 2010, lowest risk Pcode, '10 S3.

    I'm going to look elsewhere soon though as they won't be mod friendly.

    What insurer would you recommend for a new driver? My cousin passed his test today, he's 21
    I remember paying £2200 for mine the first year which is ridiculous.

    He's after an old audi a3 / or a mk4 golf

    I know a few guys who had, for example, a £10k budget and spent £8k on a car and £2000 on insurance, instead of £9500 on the car and £500 on insurance. It depends on how much you want the car, as you will lose money in depreciation on a car, but you're just throwing money away on insurance.
