Strewth - £1483 for me with Elephant on an R32 with 2 years NCB, 3 points in 1999, parked on driveway, 25 years old, no claims in past 5 years and Business Class 1. That's double what i'm paying for my 1.8T.

Not exactly close to £5055 though !!

I've noticed that weirdness with Elephant.

For me they were great, however none of my mates have had any luck at all with them.
