yea i got 1000 on a 1275cc cooper mpi. I;'m 18 but i am on a 10 month policy which gives me 1 years no claim at the end. I am with admiral and it was the best quote i got by miles! i think i will try that company out of miniworld tho next time as i will be 19 then. hopefully it will come do to 3 figs!!

Gigadave's tip of the day :

Young people. Try adding one of your parents as a named driver. This will often bring the costs of insurance down.

sorry to say this mate but getting cheap insurance on a car with only a provisional is practically an impossibility, you'll get insured... but it wont be cheap ever as long as you're on prov.

If you've got a well modified mini might be worth giving Greenlight a buzz.

As i saw in a previous post, stick your parents on the policy it should bring it down.

Greenlight are on 01277 26 30 30. Might be worth checking it out online though. If i remember rightly i filled in an online form with all the mods, then they gave me an e-mail reply with a quote. I gave them a ring to follow it up. Not sure what their policies are on age, mileage etc. All the people i speak to with modified cars recommend them though.
