    try insurethebox. they dont come up on conparison sites. but sometimes they are really good.

    the only downside to insuremybox is that it has a limit of 6000 miles. after that i think you can pay as u go or if u drive sensibly, you can earn more miles.

    when i say drive sensibly, its because they fit the car with a tracker (free) so they can actually measure your speed and distance travelled.

    again get a quote from http://www.insurethebox.com/getaquote
    Are you with them? I've seen a few insurance companies doing stuff like this, and I was wondering how it works for you? I know that co-op are doing it where they review your driving after 90days (so I think you pay every 90days?).

    HaHa im not fronting. The cars in my dads name, I still live at home and we use the car about half/half, dad proberly uses it more. Even if this was deemend fronting which it isn't how on earth would they find out, everything is in my dads name and all bills refering to the car are either payed in cash or on my dads card e.g. petrol.
    Regardless of your circumstances having your dad as the main driver will reduce the premiums, so it isn't comparable to someone who's putting themselves down as the main driver

    nope im not with them but a friend of mine is. He pays full at start or u could pay monthly. within the first week, they come and fit a tracker into ur car. the main reason for the tracker is to measure the miles ur driving. the normal limit is 6000 miles. if they realise ur a good driver, ie not speed etc, they reward you with extra miles free.

    I personally believe if an accident is to occur and you were over the speed limit, they may try and use this against you and reject a claim from you. But thats just me

    Adrian Flux will insure anything, but usually at your expense. They were pretty much the only company to give me a quote for a modified 1.8L Sierra, but it was about 4 or 5 grand.

    The fact that you live in London will be what's screwing you over. Move to an A-rated post code (like moi) and pretty cheap insurance is easy. I was quoted just under a grand fully comp for a 1990 2.5TD Land Rover Defender by Cornish Mutual. Go figure.

    Even now on a Co-op young drivers policy I put in a V reg Polo 1.0 litres with me as main driver and my parents as named and the quote came out as £2200 and on Admiral £7700 and that's without me as the main driver. What type of s*** is this?
