    Bzr Levin?

    Insurance will be tricky. Maybe autoline or liberty.

    Is this going to be a 2nd/weekend car or your main car?

    A classic policy with autoline would be your best option so.

    An Irish car or UK import would make life easier as some jap imports can cause issues. I've heard of some being turned down for classic policies due to the car being a jap import and the prospective policy holder not being old enough. Being over 30 makes all this stuff easier. As long as you keep autoline in the loop and ring them for insurance quotes on cars before you buy them ya should avoid any unnecessary headaches.

    Also don't forget to consider the ep82 gt turbo.

    Thanks for the info I'll give Autoline a call then and I would consider an ep82 but there getting very pricey at the moment and seem will only get dearer...thats why I'm thinking Glanza because they will probly be next...!
