Default Any recommendations for a 21yr old?

Just put a deposit down on my first E93 M3, being 21 I can see that I'm an insurers dream. Any cutters here know any specialists that take young drivers on M3s? Adrian flux gave me a quote of 6k and then it disappeared and Sky couldnt even give me a quote. Any help would be appreciated

Always found elephant to be cheapest for me when I was 21 and still are now. Even after lots of mods still the cheapest by far.

Hi.
I'm sorry we couldn't help out with your insurance. Our quotations are done whats called a live server so they are subject to change at any time I'm afraid.
Regards,
Dan.

Good luck! Insurance premiums seem a joke at the moment

I've used Brentacre for the insurance on my M3, I was 25 when I took it out though so may be different but they were still 600 quid cheaper than any comparison site!

Seems brokers are the best, give them a call they're always helpful to me!

I’m in the same boat mate just bought a e46 m3 that’s got a few modifications and I’ve got a quote back for 11200. It’s driving me nuts how insurance companies Calculate there quotes

Mate, thats a total joke and its funnier how on the phone they can offer you these prices in a serious manner. I managed to sort out my insurance with a company called Granite, the covers pretty comprehensive so I'd give em a ring if I were you.

Brentacre declined to give a quote dave, and they werent the only ones

Cheers will give them a quote, yeah I called everyone this morning and no one wanted to know so will see what granite say. Luckily Iím not using the car through winter so Iím hopeful prices will come down next year a bit but may have to sell if they are that high next year

Wow 11.2k sounds a bit high
Had my 1st M3 when I was 28 paid around 500 3 years later paid 380.

Bend over and take it, hopefully with a bit of spit, but it's gonna hurt!

Hahaha you guys are class, I didn't say it was my cheapest at 11200 I was just bewildered at how they got a price so high for a car that's not even considered that fast these days when surrounded by 300+bhp golfs.

I've got a few months yet till I need to bite the bullet just hope they stop being so silly with the quotes
