    Hi All,

    I finally bought one!!! A 2000 A8 4.2 Quattro Sport, lovely!!!!

    Haven't picked it up yet, but pick the lovely beast up on Thursday.

    Does anyone know of anyone who is reasonable with their insurance????? Everyone I seem to be checking with now, seems to have inflated their prices since about 3 months ago /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    Any Help appreciated
    Cheers

    Congrats mate! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif Sure you'll love it! And as always we'd love to see some pics! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Sorry I can't help you with the insurance, as I'm not in the UK. I know they're expensive though... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Have you tried some online calculations to see what they offer?

    Hi all, thanks for the replies. Sorry for the late response.

    I eventually went with elephant.co.uk

    My current insurers(Tesco) were asking nearly £800, so thought I'd shop till I dropped!!!!
    Quotes ranged from £770 upto around £1200

    34
    Audi A8 4.2 Quattro Sport 2000 W
    11 Years NCB (although) the website only asks if you've got 5 or more
    On a Driveway
    No Convictions

    Wait for it...........
    ................
    ................
    ................
    £493!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They Quoted me HAPPY!!!!!!!!! (Unlike some others I might mention)

    Sorry for the delay fellas.

    The car is fantastic!!! It's de-badged, and people really don't know what it is. So the surprise on their faces is superb. All the local boy-racers, are talking about it (I heard through the grapevine, some lad called it a 'bad-ass Audi' Oh how little he knows!!!)

    REALLY REALLY enjoying driving it, still getting used to it.
