Hi guys thought id best say hello to the forum... My names Patrick, im 21 and from somerset. Im buying a supra next week, its a 93, K, na with 150K on the clock, about 90k miles i believe. Is in pretty good nick i think just needs a damn good clean out (been owned by a farmer!) Im paying 1750 for it which I thought was a damn good price hence why im buying it and having to pay the silly insurance for it!! Do you agree? is there anyone else my age insuring a supra if so what is your premium? Thanks guys, Patrick.

Crikey that's a bargain!

Welcome to the forum / club.

Quite a few younger members around, if you do a quick search for "insurance" you should see plenty of sample quotes, failing that someone with answers will be along soon :)

That is reassuring, i got a quote online for 851.16 fully comp but was a little sceptical as i thought it would be more! Im waitin on a call back from sky insurance will see what they offer.

Be careful with the online ones, they often quote for a UK TT or even a MK3 Supra rather than the SZ, double check and then check again if you decide to go for that particular policy :)

Make sure your insurers know 100% it is a Jap import

Hmmm see they didnt even ask if it was an import which worried me, ill give them a call tomorrow and check.

Yes you can rest assured i will be looking after it much more than its previous owner!! i cant wait to get my polishing hands on it hehe :d

Cheapest Supra ever sub 2K? Try insurance companies like Adrian Flux, Sky and Lancaster rather than the more mainstream online companies.

that is cheap but check it out if it needs a lot of work it will end up costing as much as a minter .if your on a budget then the na`s are a good idea less to go wrong and as much street cred with jo public

well sorted the insurance today, have been phoning looadsa different companies geting pissed right off with giving my details!
The outcome is quite peculiar.... i spoke to at least 3/4 specialist performance/import insurers (adrian flux, high performance, allen & allen, sky) and the best i got was 1500 from AF. Came onto here and searched again and found someone mentioning a cheap quote from admiral... gave them a try and quoted 832 tpft for a 10 month accelerator scheme (a yrs ncb in 10 months i assume?) and definitely down as an import this time so im chuffed :d
A week friday until pickup!!
I saw someone replied from somerset... many supra owner in my area?

You will make my 4 nephews jealous. I have to do loads of posing trips with them around Wells whenever I go down there.
If you are round that way I will have to put you in touch.

Welcome mate. Bought just in time for the start of the dry weather (well, before it chucks it down during April anyway :D ). Hope you have fun in your new toy and that there aren't any major issues. Get some pics up when you can!
