    Well not the box insurance exactly, but they've rolled out a GPS tracker which tracks speed/cornering forces/average speed/acceleration/braking.. the whole lot..

    Lets say my insurance is £2000 per year, if I drive really badly does it go up? Or does it just... not go down. They say they reward you for driving good, so I assume it goes down a bit, anyone know how it works?

    This insurance is killing me, I'm thinking I should just get year 1 and 2 out the way, get 2 years NCB and I'll be fine. Jump in the deep end...

    You could try a classic car.
    When I was 17 I was paiyng £750 fully comp on a triumph spitfire 1500.

    These days things are a bit better:

    '67 Triumph GT6 mk1 £187 (agreed value + drive other cars)
    '72 MG Midget £118
    '74 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 £157
    '75 MGB GT V8 £116 (agreed value + drive other cars)

    Has abysmal fuel efficiency never occurred to you, since you seem to be so religious in your recommendations for classic cars? Get with the times dude, it's not the 50s any more.

    That's hard for me, I speed a lot, driving for me isn't getting A to B, I just love driving...

    If I had my way my first car would be S2000/Type R/Prelude...

    Instead itll be a 1.2 Seat Ibiza... lol

    Are those classic car policies? Back when I was looking for my first car I looked into it but for classic car insurance you needed to be 21+ at least.

    If it was the 1950's everything I own wouldn't have been invented yet, smart arse.

    You can buy a lot of fuel if you're only laying out £10 a month for insurance. Even the Jag manages 16mpg which is pretty good for a 4.2 litre engine.
