Have you been drinking or smoking some funny stuff or something?

What's the cheapest insurance quote you can get and what's your NCB and age.


€1700 1 years NCB

20years old.

no no, no funny stuff... just gonna be sad to see my baby go

highly considering a Kia Sedona to be honest.

insurance still cheaper than my car for the 2.9 model.

pass it out as as taxi, €80 a year road tax and cheap private insurance !

How much was your insurance last year? You must have had some idea of the running costs. Seems a bit daft to be dumping it now.

That's a crazy price!

Where'd you get that quote?

Tbh, 1 year NCB was never going to make a massive difference tbh.

As a comparison, I've 3 years NCB and 20, and it's 1100 TPFT on a 05 320cd.

I just reckon it's the lack of NCB letting you down here, mind you, with 1 year NCB and 18 my quote on a punto was 1600 so..

Sounds like another daft theory to me, an ST170 you have is it?

really gotta get it clean and get some pics, not got the weather for it at the moment, but its identical to the one on the link above..

edit: in regards to ncb, ive 6 years, my mate has 8 and the one who drives the colt only has 2 so maybe thats another explination for it too..

the age is letting me down big time.

my first quote was €2100 for my first year driving.

i reckon the diesel has an impact on that too ?

like i said in the OP its cheaper for a 1.9 TDI octavia or even now a 2.9 Turbo diesel sedona !

insurance last year 2100

i got over 700 KMS from a full tank of petrol everytime in my car.

but petrol VS diesel on price and lasting. diesel has it going for it.

Insurance dropping 20% in a year seems fair enough to me. How much were you expecting it to be?

i didnt want to bring it up again but if i changed my gender to female.........................................


but yeah no its just a 300odd euro drop so it doesnt seem to big there ... will only be about 20 less a month.

and the fact a diesel is cheaper even with an engine more than double the size and a turbo !

Probably because there's less claims against them...

As you now mention, it's the NCB

You'd think they'd be charging more to insure a lhd

Seems ok to me really.

I'll never get insurance quotes. Around €650 for a 1.4 petrol 03 Corolla, and around €980 for a 1.3 petrol 03 Fiesta. I'm a 22 year old female with 2 years NCB. It makes no sense that the Corolla quote was lower!

Has to be all about the level of claims against that particular car, whether in total or just in relation to how many of them are insured as in % claimed per insured.

Its 20% cheaper for me to get insured on a Lotus elise 111R than it is on a 1.6 laguna...
