    Hello and welcome to the site !
    Insurance will of course depend on how old you are, claims/points etc, I dont think the car itself is that high a group for insurance.
    Fuel compsumption pretty good, moddabilty, lots of things out there, but keep it subtle !

    i wouldnt go under your dads name. Best get your own policy as soon as possible so you can start building up some no claims.

    Thats the way i got insured on my RS4 at 25 !

    Olly's right, I pay under £700 a year for insurance on the S2 which I think is about a group 18.

    The sooner you start accumulating your own history and NCB the sooner you can have faster more powerful cars.

    Welcome to the site dude.

    Hi,
    Definitely get your own policy to build your no claims up.
    For a idea on insurance cost then why not go on confused.com and they will search several companys for you.
    One warning though if thinking of moding a vehicle then check which companys will insure you for mods before taking out the insurance so you can upgrade your policy straight forward when you get the mods.
    If not you may after change your insurance company midway and will lose on the build up of no claims you are getting with them.
    Also depending on your age on what companys will insure you for mods some want you to be 25 or over.
    You should get insurance for 2k i would of throught. But bearing in mind it may be cheaper to get a S3 or somthing else that you may not want to mod than to have a modded vehicle. Which i have found whilst enquiring with insurance companys for mine if i mod mine it will cost me the same as a Porshe or a Evo LOL.

    yep that would also work, not sure about a bike, but you could always buy a 300 quid mini.
    try elephant as they insured me with 2 years no claims on the RS4 for 700 quid fully compy.
    Direct Line wanted 1300 fully comp with 3 years no claims, so it really does pay to shop around

    i was with them for my vr6, but they didnt want to touch my s4, let alone my RS4.
    try HIC also, (mention you know Nicky from No-Rice and you may just get a discount)
