i plan to pick up a 1.4 mk4 for under 5k if i can, that will allow me to save on insurance with TPFT.

i will be 20 by the time i get the golf, with no NCB..........

how long you been driving?

I'm guessing between ?1000-2000 with 4 accidents... but I would shop around a lot more, just in case!

any guesses?

i ran a quote on elephant, using the same info as my corsa quote (with the addition of my new crash)

it quoted me ?2035 TPFT for 10 months, or ?2235 for a year.

thats in my name, but with mum on the policy too.

is that about right?

My renewal should be through in the post in the next few weeks, I'm expecting;

Age: 20

Driving: 2y10m

NCB: 1yrs

Car: 2000 1.4S

Cover: Fully Comp

Living in SE London

Price: ?650 (10 Months)

I'm pretty happy with this, I was having a look around and for a 1.8T or a 150 PD GTI it would be around ?1450, which again is not bad, but I wanna keep mine for a few years before I get into the whole 'fast' cars scenario.

As it is now, the car costs me virtually nothing, its all paid for and running costs are VERY low. I have no idea what you work as, or how much money you earn, but I'd definately never work just to pay for my car.

Er mate a 1.4 golf is NOT worth paying 2k 3pft insurance on!!! Really mate, i grudgingly paid ?1350 for my 1st years fully comp insurance for my car. I won't buy a GTi T unless it costs me under 1k to insure either!

not getting one is not an option, lol.

i dont mind paying the high premium, as it may seem high to you, but where i live, and most of the drivers i know my age - a 1 - 2k insurance premium isnt out of the norm.

and if im paying 1.8k for a 1.0 corsa, then thats a large amount, so i wont mind shedding 200-300 more to get me into a golf, as opposed to my shopping trolley.

I'm 17, got a Black 3dr Golf 1.4S 16V.

I get it insured under my mum's name with any driver (any age, and history) allowed to drive it, fully comp. The price is ?1000 with a ?250 excess.

I know I can't build up my own no claims this way but it seems stupid paying ?1700-2500 to have it in my own name.
