Do they mean driving super fast car?

very strange criteria.... even most experienced driver can crash!


But a driver with over a years experience in a performance car is going to keep an insurance company happier compared to new performance car driver due to his experience with the car. Sure anyone can crash but the more years you own a car the more you get used to the car, so the less likely you are to crash

3 points on my license and a new huge quote up £200 this year. Couldn't find anyone cheaper even with putting less mileage on the car. Tried all the suppliers on here with no joy

£340 is what I paid last year but don't believe that 3 points has put £200 on my cover?

So £2 less than last year.

I should add all my figures are exclusive of IPT as this has a habit of continually going up each year making year on year comparisons harder.
Not bad at all

No. I'm about 5 miles north of Chester, on the south of the Wirral.

My other car is a 1.2L Fiat 500 (with 10 years NCD), also a 2011 car, and that's £160. An Amazon driver asked me about 2 weeks ago what my insurance for my GTR was and he almost fell over when I told him !
How many miles a year is that based on mate?

A friend of mine with sports cars recommends LV Insurance. Hes been with them a few years now with no issues. I've just renewed my insurance but will try them next year for sure.

Thanks to y'all for the thoughts and experiences conveyed...

ODDLY... I got better quotes from the usual suspects. I even got 1,044 from my OWN (recent) insurer, whereby they gave me 1616 over the phone. Flabbered me ghaster.

So I'm down to so 900 quid, right where I had hoped (expected, rather), to be.

Now to narrow-in on the choice of car. The Mrs. thinks I'm spending 10k on a car this week, ha ha. You and I here know better.

Its a toss up between a lower-end-priced car (expected to be high 20s / low 30s), or dumping said-amount as a deposit on financing a brand new Recaro version. Which still leaves me on the hook for an outstanding 50 to 60k with interest.

So I'm 60/40 to just 'losing' the 30, and having no risk.

I'll chip away at that quote again tomorrow, I need a break from a day of 'insurance surfing'...

Give the company above a try my mate suggested. He has some decent cars and swears by them.
