    £1000 a year for me (23 year old male, no no claims but no accidents in 3 years), my sister (22) and my parents. would defos recommend admiral multicar if you've got a few cars in your family. they don't even have to be kept at the same address.

    Hehe, about £130-odd at the moment on the old company car tax but then that's literally all I pay for aside from personal fuel so still a good deal :)

    Haha...Who you with mate? Its not that bad £1,400, my insurance would be lower if i added my 15% discount on top.
    Dont matter anyway i dont have a 2.0tdi was the quotes i was getting when i put a deposit on one.
    Also if you add a female drive to the policy it drop in price.

    Add a Driver even if it is your mum, for some unknown reason having a another named driver on the policy reduces it,,,, DON'T ask me why, it is a stupid stat that ins companies say that people with named drivers policy's have less accidents/claims, I think that is stupid and false to think that you are less likely to have an accident cos someone else is on the policy

    About £450 for me on a 3.2. Been quoted £600ish for an M3 (albeit garaged with tracker), so not unhappy with that either

    The joys of being over 30, 7 years NCB, 0 points and living in a posh village!

    Holy heavens above!!! you pay that much to insure a diesel!?!? Thats absurd, I hate insurance companies.

    Would it not be cheaper for you to actually move to another area!?

    mate thats stupid price, so you actually paid that? Dont mean to sound rude or anything but your insurance was worth more than the car. You need to shop around a bit more before paying insurance lol, add your mum, gf or a sister to a policy even an auntie or cousin or any random girl you may know lol and the price will go down quite alot. Also if you put your annual miles down insurance will be cheaper.
    I checked last week on a B5 Rs4 with discount from work £2,000 dont ask me how its cheaper than an S3, i'm waiting a reply back from work lol

    Thats not a bad price mate :) i checked for an S3 right now with discount from work £2,500! Think i'll wait till i get my 1ncb & a bit more discount haha

    Agree. no point trying to play Admiral, Elephant or Bell Car insurance again each other as Admiral own both of them.

    Dont blame you if my insurance on an S3 now was £1,500 or even just below £2k i'd go and get on. You should be fine mate getting another quote from them, just put everything the same in as you did before. Could even be cheap as time goes on.

    Being a golden oldie at 41........... 380 quid a year, 12 years NCD protected , no points ( ever ) and I though that was steep ! How the hell some of you manage to stomach these insurance prices, it must be a killer !
    Mind you back in the dark ages when I were a lad my first car was a 1000cc mini that cost 300 quid and the insurance was 400 quid for 3rd party F&T, so relatively speaking not much has changed I suppose. Inflation eh !!
