    I've had quotes ranging from 1.4-2.0l for about £1800 tops.

    Even if I could get the quote half that price I'd still like to be able to drive when I wanted.

    ^ Are you 18? If so, thats really strange for a 2.0litre. I got quoted 6,000 for my old mans bimmer.

    What area do you live in richie rich? What else did you put down when getting a quote? There must of been something to show that kind of a difference. Also, what cars where you looking at? Becuase if I can get insured for under £2,000, I'm happy. (PS: what insurers where you looking at?)

    It wouldn't be the first time that we've been spammed with i-Kube stuff. Maybe the company employs people to 'subtly 'advertise on student forums? Anyway, i-Kube is a stupid buzzword sort of name for a company, thus you shouldn't give them a penny. Or, if you do buy from them, encase their GPS transmitter in a block of lead...

    You think its a good idea that an insurance company can track your cars whereabouts, its speed and direction 24/7?! Like hell would I want that on my car. Ok if you drive like a grandma, but anyone who likes to press on that gas pedal is going to find themselves in hot water I think. Daft idea.

    You might aswell just by a Bus Pass, the point of a car is to have freedom to do where you want.

    I was quoted £3,500 for 1.4 1999 Golf. I'm sorry, but that is rape and a half.

    Freedom to drive? C'mon, what would you seriously be doing out on the street after that time anyway? And even if you where, it will only cost £45 per night. + the fact you still payed half the money to insure it, so if you where ever to go over and over, I doubt it would ever get close to the original quote by the end of the year.

    Again, I'm talking about a BMW here. I got quoted on my dads insurer £6,000+ (+ my £500 that my old man pays)

    Anyways, what I'm trying to find out is, if this is for real or not.
    Well I am in my early 20's with few years NCB so I don't need to worry about this anyway. Only £45 per night, lol I'll end up paying 1k extra. I am always doing something random at night-would rather not have a curfew hehe. It's only a 2 litre as well BMW, hardly a tuned hot hatch.

    Nope. That's not what I was trying to say. I was trying to point out that insuring a 2.0 litre BMW in a rough neigbourhood will only cost £1,600? It just seemed to good to be true. First time driver and only 18m? Wow.
    I understood that but other people didn't seem to, you were just using that as an example :p:

    Whilst that is true, a lot of people wouldn't need to drive between 11pm and 5am.. I mean unless you're going out which means you'll be drinking anyway so can't drive, why would you need to drive at those times?

    Why did you do Economics if you wanted to do Chemistry? I'm asking because I'm thinking of doing excactly the same A-levels as you because I don't know if I want to do medicine or Economics :p:

    I want to do Paramedic Science at university, that means shifts between those times, with the possibility of having to leave before 5 AM! it's not that great for people who work nights, and basically counts out all healthcare students (nurses work nights too!)
