I'm 21 and looking at getting my first r33 gtst within the next two months so I've started to look at insurance. So far it's coming out at around £2500. Does this seem about right or too high. Here's what I've done to lower it,
Limited miles, social only ( have a van for work), added parents, locked garage all the time, added alarm, fully comp which comes out cheaper, no mods.

If anyone knows of any deals or places to try that would be great. Thanks

Ok well from my experience, and that being:

350gt at 19 with 1y ncb insurance was £1290

Crashed that jan 2015

Got another and insured it when i was and am 21 for £1200 with crash declared and a few mods declared too, i am currently with bell and was last time, they give you a box for the first three months that you plug into your cig lighter and its powered from there, simple and got me a £50 discount this year and 80 last time. The next closest prices the first year without a box was about 300 more and the second time about 200 more so up to you whether u put up with a box or not for just 3 months

So what i do is i go on comparison sites like go compare and compare the market. I then do all the usual, your details, your cars details, if your young put an experienced driver with no crash history, you dont even need to be related, as a second driver. Preferably someone where the job can be called 'office worker' (cheapest job for insurance quotes) and then dont include any of the mods on your car, leave tht as no mods. Then when you get to the results where the different companies prices are, go onto the cheapest or the one you like the most and go through it until you end up on their site which will give w summary of the details of your cover, i then added the mods at this point (if i added it originally a lot of companies wouldnt come up at all) then finish editing the bits for your car and see the final price

I'm 23 (insured when the car was 22), 3yrs no claims because i was a named driver, no crashes or points and mine is £1800 with mods. They quoted me £3k unmodified but refused to cover me because they refused to believe it didn't have mods. This is parked on the road in a quiet street/nice area and fully comp doing 10k miles a year as a daily driver
