But, they didn't reduce it one bit when I turned 18 but possibly because I've not actually been driving for a whole year yet. (only a week to go!!)

Remember, TMF+ members get 15% off Adrian Flux and Sureterm insurance, but TMF+ is down at the mo so only existing members can get it.

Adrian flux was £2000 including provisional.
Both will be cheaper with pass plus.
Thats on a 998 designer, which now looks like this, with a stage one kit:

998 pocketed block with a 1275 head, A stage one kit. Alloys, group 2 arches fully comp with unlimited. My access is also only £100 which was dumb. If I had put that to £500 I'm sure it would drop the price quite a bit.
I'v been calling around to see what I can get if for when mine runs out. With a 998 stage 3 head stage 1 kit. 4 pot 10"brake conversion and 10" wheels. Cobra classic seats and also told them about the sound system and that was about £1100 with 1 years NCB. I havnt done Pass plus yet but closer to the time I may do it depending if it will lower my insurance or not and not all companies will accept it. Again that was fully comp.

Be aware that even though classic policys are really cheap they do have their downsides (not many though).
Car has to be 15 years or older
You can only have limited mileage which is 4500 max with footman james (can build up if its your daily drive, I do 6000 in my other mini)
You have to be with a mini club
Remember to declare any mods you do to the car aswell.
If you do a search theres loads of insurance threads.
