    Because you're 31 you'll be fine. Most of us complaining about insurance are under 21.

    Postcode should be fine really, itll make it more expensive then if you lived in a lower risk area but from what ive seen it doesnt affect it that much. Given youre 31 it shouldnt be too expensive anyway.
