Hi Everyone just joined up, looking to get my next car as my ban will soon be up

used to drive a Supra N/a- TT, and i'm really not going to go from 3L Twin Turbo to a cinqiento.

been investageing classic car insurance as a way to get "cheaper car insurance" as well as becoming a car trader got to love loop holes, and see the R33 falls in to the category(sp?)

I now living walking distance to work, so i will not be driving it alot so mileage is not a issue

guess my real question here are....

Anyone got the R33 on classic car insurance?

Not that is really matters as i can walk, but i would assume nissan over engineered there engines like toyota..? so there reliable..?

Guess the last question which you'll linch me for... anyone insurance on a R33 with a DR10 (was a very stupid mistake, which has messed up my life, so please don't go there)

Thank you for your time

Supra N/a-TT is a na supra thats had a TT lump dropped in. (in my case 2 and as 1 blow up as the garage need upgrated the fuel pump they where meant to....)

i thought/lead to belive its 15year old car, but normally the driver has to be 25+ (i'm 26)... as a random car i was looking at, RS-turbo escort is 20 years old as is 700.00 fully comp for me

I had a supra 3lt turbo auto insured for £250 f/c with the poss of doing up to £1500 of cosmetic work and could also increase the stock engine output by upto 10 percent.

It was the cheapest by far but the car had to be over 20 years old policy holder had to be over 25 and limited to 4k miles per year.

oh nice so for insurance purposes does that mean it wud be still classed as an n/a with a turbo mod as such. if so thats a fairly nice way to get the insurance down.... plus i had no idea classic car insurance was 15 years not 25, i was sure it was 25. if its only 15 then presumably all R33 owners over 25 will be going classic car insurance within the next year or so... personally i thought it was 25 years... 15 seems a little too recent for being classic car if u ask me.

well good luck with ur choices and best to speak to dan @ a-plan on this forum about insurance as he is the man who knows it all and sorted almost all of us out with very good prices.

the car usually has to be 25 years plus old, and so does the driver

i dont think that will help aftera drink driving ban in honesty, would be cheaper to insure concorde

r32 onwards skylines wont be classed as classic, you get restricted mileage on modifieds, and they all have been, so its usually actuyally cheaper to insure modded cars

as for putting a TT engine in a supra and insuring it as NA, thats absolute idiocy, highly illegal and renders the insurance void instantly, as does not declaring any mods

Where at any point did i say i insured a Supra as a Na with a TT engine in? all i said was i owned a supra N/a-TT.

The car was insured as a supra na with a TT engine in it... thats the law you know!!

In Ireland anyway it has to be 25yrs old, vintage is then 30yrs!
In ireland its 20 years for classic(insurance) and 30 for vintage(tax), maybe some companys differ slightly on the classic 20year thing but i'm 100% positive some companys are 20 years. I tried recently too, insurance on an e30 for example is no prob, E250 fully comp, but aparently skylines are on a no go list cause i tried on a 89 r32

I've got a classic policy on my Integra which is 21 years old and i was 26 when i first insured it a few months back. Have a look on go compare, a company called performance direct came up much cheaper than anywhere else i'd seen.

As for lowering the cost...depending on your situation...usually having a woman as a named driver helps. My girlfriend had 9 points and less no claims than me but adding her managed to lower my policy a fair bit.
