I pay for mine in one go, bummer is I picked my car up on the 2nd Jan so december is normally a very, very expensive month as I also have to tax my car... To make things worse last year I had to pay for christmas (2 parties, lots of presents, car insurance, road tax) and then my washing machine breaks on me. I tried to tell Claire that she could do the washing by hand but wasn't having none of it!
i pay with a loan, cheaper too than buying the brokers finance..
a new quote today says 918 quid, their payments, 279 deposit [:O] then 9 months of 88.01, i cant afford the 300 quid dep.[!] so I rung alliance and leicester organised a 900 quid loan over a year and I pay 12 installments of 91 quid... far better I reckon.. . its cheaper too, by about 70 quid..
the only trouble I get is that when renewal comes, I might get a month overlap, but I think its worth it...
i pay annually and payed 1400 quid last year as id only been driving 4 months when i got me 2.0. I have saved bits and bobs up over the year to pay annually again, should be about £1100 this year, a total joke.
I pay annually, saving a bit throughout the year - I dont want to give the robbing gits any more than I can help  Last year mine was £850, too much considering I am 29 with no accidents in last 12 years!
