    Have you tried adding an older driver to your policy to bring the price down?

    Insuring my dad as a named driver knocked approx £100 off my premium.

    Only payed £180 this year.

    Being old does have its benefits... :)

    I go with Directline, I get a discount for paying online and if you have two policies at the same address you get 10% off, Im not interested in a courtesy car and I put my excess up to the highest amount possible, my Bora was £265 for the year.....

    I'm 25, 7 years no claims, 31 year old partner on policy, SP30 - Lowest quote so far is £370 for the year with directline.com

    I will be going back to A-plan to get them to better it though.

    Shop around all the comparison sites etc and you should get a smart deal.

    There's no way I'd pay that much for insurance, just couldn't justify that to myself.

    I'm only £500 for the RS.

    Me neither...
    I'm about 600 on the 911.

    £270 a month? I'd want a Platunim plated tuned Zonda for that sort of cash...not a poxy A3.

    You'd probably get a Zonda for less than that! Just had a hunt round the internet and it seems I can get insurance on a Murcielago LP640 for less than £1400 a year. Shame I can't afford the car :(

    Mine is £1100 with Audi insurance, business use and a shitty postcode. They agreed to accept the 9yrs no claims I had lost due to going on a classic policy, no one else would and the cheapest was £2400.


    My Cossie was £126 F/C all mods declared, £4k agreed value and salvage retention.
