    23 (22 at purchase), 1 years ncb and I'm paying 1,680. Nobody would touch me for insurance this time last year! Churchill quoted me 1,200 last month, but I wasn't willing to lose a years ncb over another 3 months' payments. I lost 18 months ncb for coming off a company fleet scheme!

    i am 23 have 5 years NCB and pay £620 (if paid in 1 off payment) for myself and my partner as a named driver. This is with admiral (found through confused.com). They only people who could come close were Adrian Flux, who I was previously insured with at around £830 (without my gf on).

    I was well impressed with my policy.

    Male, 34, full no claims, no convictions, East Sussex, parked on driveway, remap declared: £450 with Direct Line. (Was under £400 before remap).




    Cheap? Maybe, but now I feel old.

    What sort of excess is that with ? And is that with the map being declared as between 11-20% power increase ?

    direct line is £650 for me (35 full protected ncd, and garaged, no claims)

    Just checked the paperwork. It's £480 not £450, and includes legal protection. Engine power 11-20% increase.

    The excess is high: £600.

    Forgot to mention that my girlfriend is down as a named driver. This reduced the premium slightly.

    Is that for an S3? I've never heard of anyone getting S3 insurance that low.

    my first S3 was when i was 21. Direct Line Full Comp £740

    2nd S3 now im 23 is £440 with direct line. 5yrs NCB and 1 SP30.

    I have a CB1 postcode which aparently is lowest group in the UK so i guess that helps.

    I'm coming up to renewal time, and I'm looking to buy a house so I need to get my premium down as much as poss. Any recommendations? 23, should have 2 years ncb, CH62 postcode. I'll be looking to garage it as well. What do you guys think to insuring the S3 as a second car?

    I was 24 last time round with 4 years no claims and 4 years driving, £660 I think from memory, S3 with minor mods - Adrian Flux, Greenlight were about the same but wouldn't protect my no claims.

    yeh i think that is good concidering the NCB. i tried to pay mine other 12 months and it worked out at around 1700, ha ha, so i cancelled it and paid it straight off, cant see how they could justify that amount over a year! never mind
