But i was very much ripped off when insuring my mini, im 17 and just bought a 1998 mini cooper with a 1275 cc engine and couldnt be happier i love the car to peices cost me a bit though i paid 2600 knocking it down from 2750 .
But then when it came to insurance wow. First of all before looking for a mini i did look at insurance prices and i did a few quotes on other Mini's which were for sale at the time for around about the same prices and engines and i was delighted to find they were cheaper than the previous cars that i had looked at which was a VW polo , and so i found out that the price of the insurance was about £1400 on my own insurance, but then i got my mini which i was over the moon about back to the house then the next day me and my dad looked at insurance and to my horror i found out that the insurance companies wouldnt offer me less than £3400 on my own insurance i could have cried because i was soooooo pleased with my mini and the reason we think is that it is a cooper, not the engine size or age of the car but the name!!!! But eventually after a few days of looking on the internet we found the AA would give me £1800 under my dad's name so thats how i did it and i couldnt be happier. This way i will not be getting any no claims though :/ but who cares ive got the mini of my dreams and i dont have to worry about insurance again for a whole year.
But i do warn you all before you go too look at a car get a quote for that car before buying!

Adrian flux were £2600 or £2200. Everywhere else would not do it or it was a huge amount.

1293 mini with all (and all=lots) of mods declared, garaged, agreed value, mileage limit of 3000 per year, full European cover and UK and Euro Breakdown cover comes out about £440 with Adrian Flux but Insurance is with Highway. With a bit of TMF discount.
