Insurance ouch!

Postby Evarus » Sat Jul 02, 2011 12:22 pm

Hi all i just got a few quotes today to test the waters on an IS300..... bugger its expensive for a car thats only 220hp >_< car is a 53 plate is300 stadard and worth around 3k.
Im 28 with 7 years no claims. living in Bournemouth no convictions 1 accident in 2008 £300 claim on my own car. 1 non fault claim in 2010. Both times i was bashed into by a lady who lost controll of her car lol.
Anyhow with a limited millage of 7k miles and £250 excess with protected no claims they want to bone be for £1309 or there abouts(A Plan, Adrian Flux, Lloysd TSB1.8k! lol). My old car was a Nissan Stagea RS4 (4x4 r33 gtst skyline estate) and was only paying 900 a year with 6ync and protected fully comp.

Just a bit upset that i get such bad insurance quotes. Duno if i should just get a is200 or a RS200 or just forget it and get something else. My original plan was to get an is300 then in the fullness of time upgrade to a turbo kit in a year or so. But i hate to think what they would want to screw me for if it was a turbo. Should just get a supra or aristo and be done with it i guess.
Anyhow Rant over with. Just very annoyed grrrr :x

Ring your insurer and ask them what the premium would be if you took a voluntary excess of an additional 500 and see what the reduction will be. If its more than 96 you're saving money by buying the £500 excess cover from getcovered :D
