rite im 19yrs old have 2 yrs no claims and 3 points for speeding i insure my 2.0i sport impreza with worth of mods (see newbie section) for 1200 FC

on a uk spec twin turbo supra!

2400 TPFT

now thats alot of money double what i pay on my impreza but not something i would be able to afford shame all the uk models ive seem are 8k+ to buy :( otherwise i would be buying one lol i would have about 6500max to spend would it be possible to get a nice one for that money! :blink:

Well for 6.5 you are looking at an Auto TT j-spec. However the insurance is going to be a killer and to be fair I am with the insuance company on this one, your 19 and already have 3 points, plus a Supra is a lot rarer than your scoobie, more appealing to theves and chucks out far more power through 2 wheels and not 4. For 6.5 you would get a nice NA supra they are by no means slow (225bhp 0-60 6.5sec (ish)) and may find the insurance a bit better. I am 22 with 3 ncb and I am paying 850 for my SZ and have been told it will be about the same for the TT when I get it. Sorry to shoot you down but I am trying to save you some money, may be worth trying Lancaster as they will insure it as a classic or Sky as they are top blokes who know their stuff.

my 3 points i got in my work van doh! 36 in 30 :(

i dont want to pay 2.5k for insurance my mate has a lovely red NA that he would sell me he wants aprox 5500 for that its had a new clutch resently and full service, its got a nice set of OZ wheels, lowered, a few other bits done it is absolutely gorgeous but it is a manual import and i dont know who to try for insurance on that and what sort of money would i be looking at..

Ok for imports try lancaster they were great for me when I got mine at 21. Also try sky as they are the insuance company the club uses (we get a bit of discount with them). I was paying around 890 fully comp and that was with sideskirts, exhaust, wheels declared.

Daston
22-11-06, 15:54
Oh and I got done the other month doing 63 in a 50 limit and sky wernt that bothered by it.

cheers for your help! do you know if they do insurance for under 21's then?

Daston
22-11-06, 15:58

Impreza sport will be cheaper to insure because it doesn't have any turbos.

the way i done it when i was 19 was to insure the value of the car for under 5 grand that way i could insure it 3rd party only i think i paid about 1800 that was on a import wrx impreza which was a group 20. but u take the risk that if u smash it or it gets stolen u lose everything

you should be able to pickup a pretty decent jspec twin turbo for 6.5k ... as for an NA, you'll get one free with a bag of chips :( most go for around the 4k mark (good examples too!!) checkout the forsale section, ebay, or autotrader - winter is a buyers market :) .. as for insurance erm... well you'r gonna have to donate your right kidney for that :p

22-11-06, 16:29
Really?? I was told that the insurace on a TT and NA were pretty much the same. Oh and NA's are import only.

22-11-06, 16:31
i texted my mate earlyer asking him when he is gonna sell me it lol he just came back to me saying he want to get rid of his asap.. so the hunt is on for insurance my current company wont touch it thats norwich union and they said i will lose this yrs NCD (yr3) but i current have 2.

Daston
22-11-06, 16:33

UK TT for me was cheaper than an import NA a few years ago.

NAs are going cheaply at the moment though. I'd still want above 4k for mine, its important to hold out and sell for what it is worth.

My FTO went for a grand more than some were being sold for but it was in great condition inside and out. Bloke saw it, didn't appreciate the price and went away to look at some onthers for less money. Realising they were all poor he came back and paid cash for mine.

Trouble is getting a person round in the first place to see the difference between a much loved club car and a eBay banger.

yep not much, but dependent on age and record etc
For me a TT is about 30.00 more than my NA Yet my FTO was about 150.00 more than the Supra!!
I got a 150.00 refund when sold the FTO and bought the Supe

Try Bell who just gave me a decent quote but i'm rediculously old. They do quote for low no claims. You guys paying 2800 for insurance really have too much money. Thats 280 cases of stella.

23-11-06, 13:52
dont forget the ol' parent as a named driver trick, it'll take a fair few hundred quid off your insurance.

i got my first supra when i was 18 and had it insured then, had 3 points due to speeding (before i passed :blink:) but still insured it for just over 2k. speak to CIS insurance they seem to be pretty good.

dibbleyuk
23-11-06, 20:02
how old are u mate and was it an import?

mk47
23-11-06, 20:03
im now 21, when i got it i was 18 just turning 19. it was a jspec na (import) but was pretty standard apart from i replaced the exhaust.

I would recomend elephant. Im 22 with no years no-claims and own a 1993 twin turbo GZ and its only, well i say only, its still a kick in the nuts but its 1580ish which isnt to bad for that car and the fact ive got no no-claims. funny thing was is that I tried a quote for a NA supra and it didnt change a penny it was exactly the same which I found odd.

i couldnt get insured on a import..

However i only pay 1800 Fully comp with Elephant at 19 on my UK Spec TT6

Last year when i was 22 i was insured on my Facelift 1996 TT Import with elephant with (0) NCB
for 1280
for a 12month fully comp
and three mods declared (cosmetic)

This year i am 23 (suprise suprise) and am with Sky and have 2years NCB with all mods declared (including performance mods)
fully comp with agreed value and people who know what they are talking about for 940 with two extra drivers

Alright mate, you dont want to know what i pay its shocking!! Sky did quote me happy when i phoned them yesterday though, 1400 tpft but wouldnt insure me fc as they said i was too young. Phoned elephant 2000 tpft and 2614 fc but wouldnt insure me on a tt until i was 21 even though i have 1 years NCB. So i dont know how some people get insured on tt's at mine and your age, believe me mate get an n/a because you wont get insured on a j-spec tt until your 21. And dont go for adrian flux because they will rip you off!!

Chewie
23-12-06, 15:47
I can't believe what you youngsters are paying! I'm with Admiral, fully comp with full NCB, bonus protected for 360. It was 280. How can they justify 80 in a year? The crooks!!

Howdy :hello: just bought my NA from Mark (Mr Hanky) and Vicki this week, few light mods - exhaust, bigger rims, coilovers etc ;) its a beut. Waited over a year for right one, thrilled :inlove: . I went to Sky who said 456 notes,then tried A-Plan, who said 432, FC, prot no claims, legals n stuff. A-Plan specialise in imports 0845 071 1234. Givem a try :)
