car insurance

Just been shopping around for insurance on Discovery I have just bought - leading companies wanted around the 1000 mark - even direct choice who are always the cheapest on normal cars. Firebond who are dirt cheap on classics wanted 1100. Best quote of all - NFU 395!!!!

To sum up

Cars over 10yrs old classic insurance - Firebond

Normal and performance cars - Direct Choice(Taylor price)

4x4s - NFU

Well this is what I have found after a lot of time and effort!!!

car insurance

just insured my discovery online with the RAC - 230 fully comp for a @97 v8 ES - beat the next best quote by 50!! The are probably trying that bit harder because they are trying to boost their insurance sector. being an RAC member got me a bit extra off plus they upgraded my membership a level.

Bloody hell either you are 100 yrs old or no cars ever get nicked in your area???

I think living in Swansea which is the car crime capital of the UK prob doesn't help me much!!!
