Insurance - Booooo :(
A tad annoyed today, (and thanks to Dan @ Aplan for trying to help)
Was offered a very nice Impreza wagon yesterday with PPP kit and 300bhp upgrades. Full service history, owners club member for 7 years etc. Car was super cheap and I was considering it for a track car.
Main problem is I don't have a trailer or a 4x4 so the car would need to be road legal. With my 9 years NCB tied up on my Alfa I was having to get quotes without any NCB at all. As you can imagine now that Imprezas are so cheap the premiums are sky-high as every little chav seems to want one.
So despite the fact I've owned a 400bhp Skyline, a 306 Rallye and a 156 GTA in the last 4 years and haven't had a single accident in my 9 years on the road the few companies that were actually willing to quote we coming up with figures of around £2000!!! Yes, that's on a 3rd party policy with limited mileage of 1000 miles (e.g to and from Knockhill!)
No. ****ing. Way
Never mind, I'll have to find something else to spend my money on now....
Haven't owned a Skyline in 4 years but I'm still lurking...!
