    The cheapest quote they provided me with was £600 more than I'm paying now, the dearest was £1,800 more. Audi's quote was £800 more. Think I'll stay put!

    From what I have seen and read, the price comparison sites are going down hill.. a lot of people are now preferring the personal touch servie of high street brokers.

    Go directly to the company website will be cheaper than on a comparison site.

    They wouldnt insure me till I was 24, my birthday is the 2nd September... On the 3rd September guess what I bought...

    Back to topic though I really would try calling Admiral, in the years I have been driving they havce always beaten any quote I got from other companies.

    Okay, thanks for that. It doesn't help that I live in a bit of a crime hole at the moment and have to park either on the street or in an NCP car park. Scary, scary times. Can't wait for a garage again.

    Blimey parking overnight in an NCP, must cost a small fortune!!!

    Parking in a garage as opposed to driveway made no difference for my policy, so I just said driveway if I forget to put it in my garage!

    I got a good quote through Compare The Market and Budget Insurance was the cheapest at the time. Worth checking out, not sure if it will be cheaper going to them direct.
