    Hi Kohaku,

    I'm 67-years young with a clean driving licence (honest) and have paid SAGA £397 for 2011/12 and £364 for 2012/13. To put this into perspective in 2010 I paid £255 for a 2001 S3.

    Question: Do I think the RS3 worth spending £200 more per year than an S3? Undoubtedly, the RS3 suits me just fine...

    Many insurance companies do seem to be "kind " to RS3 owners

    That sounds very good for your age..

    I'm probably as low risk as you can get. ( Apart from speeding offences) Max 6000 miles per year.

    I believe many insurers are not in the market for us. Obviously Swinton take the negative approach.

    One company may be in a position to take most of the 750 of us that will be looking for a new home in the next 12 months.


    Just contacted Sainsburys.NO GOOD. Min Ex £750

    Premium £446....Another company doesn't want to be in this market...fools.

    I was with sainsbury`s insurance up until last october, and was paying £470 for a mk5 GTi. No points, 13 years NCB, and I`m 44. When I was buying the RS3 I rang them to find out how much more they wanted from me and to my amazement they quoted me a whopping £ 1900 a year!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocking I couldn`t belive it, I was really really p....d off with them so I sent them a right nasty email and good bye sainsbury insurance. Now I`m with admiral, at first they wanted £ 500 but then dropped it to £400 when I decided to get a multicar policy instead for me and my daughter, I bought her a 2005 Polo 1.2, she is 18, just passed her test and I paid £ 1600 for her insurance or could have been £ 1400 if we had a insurance tracker fitted to her car.

    I'm due to renew tomorrow, got it down to £490 with Direct Line (been with them for 8 or 9 years) but having seen some of the figures above I might shop around. I'm 38 by the way and have a Sevenoaks, Kent postcode, garage and tracker fitted.

    Can never understand insurance pay £330 for the RS3 9 years NCB then I had a Golf Edition 30 added on a Multi-Car Policy with 1 Years NCB last year nearly £600 just swapped it over to put the GT-R on it was thinking I would need to switch the RS3 NCB to bring it down and it costing less than the Golf (Only £580) with 1 Years NCB and same conditions.

    Maybe the reason for 'low' insurance is: (a) there aren't many RS3s out there so the statistical accident rate is low, (b) many are being driven by old far#s, mine included, and (c) the insurance industry think us safe and steady ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ sorry, but I just had to laugh at that!

    Maybe dancupra225, with Swinton informed knowledge, can tell us.

    PS: one definition of 'driving fast' is to compare: (a) the number of times you overtake to (b) the number of times you're overtaken: I can't ever recall been overtaken on A/B roads whilst in the RS3, ever...

    I think begining of last year we put it down to (A) but since we've had stolen at knife point, 3 smashed up, 1 stolen interior and a few known minor claims...

    I think we all maybe in for a shock come renewal??

    I'm impressed by a lot of the prices quoted here but at the same time sceptical I could get better given my own position. TBH I just swapped the RS4 for the RS3 at Admiral Multicar and they charged me to add air filter and exhaust to my mods on the 3 by about £30 so theoretically that meant the 3 was £30 more to insure than my RS4 which is reasonable enough since it is about 3x the value and I'm doing 3x the mileage in it. I suspect they were having me over a barrell though because I simply swapped cars on the same policy.

    I'll be shopping around next time as I'm not convinced multicar is worthwhile when only two cars. Theoretically my RS3 is costing £730 for Class I business use on 15k miles, no points, 11 years protected NCB, 1 fault accident, 2 windscreen claims and two non fault fully recovered accident notifications in the last 5 years, 39 years old. Partner on policy as well for SDP, 39 years old, 2x SP30, no accidents.

    I'm 37, not the best example as mine's an LHD import, 8 year protected no claim ==> £600

    I think I'm being had because of the LHD, but that's a choice I accept.

    Ran out of time before I had to renew and have gone with Direct Line again. £490 with 6 years NCB and £500 excess was the best they could do and Sainsbury's, Swinton etc couldn't do significantly better. That's £90 more than for the 1.5 year old Scirocco £25k last year. Also found that adding the gf to the policy brings the price down, which is the opposite of what I expected.

    My previous insurers sainsburys wanted £1900 ( £1500 more then what I was paying them for a GTi, I am 44,14 years ncb,clean licence ) I told them to get stuffed and went with admiral for a nice £ 450.(Still a bit high but I have a bad Preston PR1 postcode)
    Few days ago I got an email from money supermarket with a quote for £ 360 but that was for my old GTi, and just for curiosity I changed the car details with those of the RS3, and the cheapest quote I got was for £ 520 and to my astonishment it was from SAINSBURY again, my previous insurers, the same ones that wanted 1900 quid, and that was only 2 months ago !!!!!!!!!
    Can you work that out, anybody ???
    So to the people who are paying bloody alot of hard earned cash I would say to keep trying for new quotes, you can always cancel your policy get some money back and go with somebody else.

    Sure is, I'll add the classic three words though, at the moment. I'm holding off a remap due to the drive shaft issues etc reported recently, I want to stay with an insurer who accepts mods should the mood strike. Plus every time I think about more power three little letters hover in front of my eyes...GTR!
