Apart from being 29 years old that's a sorry set of circumstances

Have you tied A-plan brokers? 01635 874646

Christ that is expensive, I’m paying just under 」600 and I’m 28. Try pace Ward bud, that’s who insures me.

Probably a long shot for yourself but I'm with admiral paying 」728. I'm 24, 4 years no claims/incidents/tickets. The past 2 years I was with admiral and then aviva and found that after paying this price for both, they then hit my renewal with 」1700+. End up just jumping between companies to get the 700ish.

I would suggest the following actions:

1. Stop crashing
2. Move out of Birmingham
3. Get your debit card out

Calling bullshit on this. Did you tell them you were 54 instead of 24?

I知 24 with a clean license and have 5 years no claims and one accident not at fault in 2013 .

Hard to believe anyone under the age of 25 has cheap insurance for an M3 unless it is third party .

Pretty much everyone quoted me 」5000 or above plus so I was gonna end up getting a 335i. I tried Direct Line and they said if I get a tracker in the car they will offer me a quote of 」2600 what is decent for the category of car and age .


My friend who has a A3 2.0 TDI with pretty much the exact same details and no claims as me pays 」1500 . Hard to think where you live can add exponential amounts of surplus to your insurance.

It seems to be an absolute lottery with insurance.
30 y/o, 9 yrs NCB, no claims/convictions, Low crime area, pay insurance in full annually, named driver on another car, and own a motorcycle..
」1200 was the cheapest I could find. Dreading renewal time!

To be honest, the really low quotes being banded around are from people who live in the arse end of beyond.

I'm 43, never had points, no accidents in 10+ years and live in a (relatively) low risk area yet one insurer wouldn't even give me a quote ffs. I'm paying 」720 F/C.

I have absolutely no reason to lie. Just passing on info in the hope someone finds a decent deal. I'm just outside Glasgow and my dad is a named driver which brings it down a fair whack. Other than that im fully comp, 7000 miles communitng and paying 500 excess before young driver excess etc gets added. My m3 is late 2007and a week after taking out my policy, I declared comp pack wheels and exhaust for extra 」48.

I'm 52, living in Bedfordshire, fully protected no claims bonus, no points, no claims and paying 」388 a year with LV. Its not all plain sailing though as I have to get up once a night to go for a pee!
