    Or how about just looking at individual insurers websites for quotes?

    I've done that, but I haven't bought it yet and they all keep saying we can't get a quote after i enter my info, so I was wondering if anyone could give me an average,they'd expect I'd have to pay.

    If they're saying they can't give you a quote I would ring up and ask them, see what they say about it.

    2 ltr petrol engine, 204 bhp, oh and insurance group 17. They will insure you, but it will cost you thousands ( anything up from £2500 at best).

    Try 1st Central insurance, or Adrian Flux. They tend to be more competitive for high performance cars.

    Even on a 1.0l micra you'll be struggling to pay under £800 third party only, with no frills.

    It is statistically more likely for a young male to crash than a young female.

    Insurance is just a form of gambling... the insurers are gambling on you not crashing to make their money. If you are statistically more likely to make them pay out, they'll be taking more from you in the first place.

    I tried getting a quote for a 1.0l micra that i estimated as being worth £500. Third party insurance was coming in at £1500. Im 17, male and live in a relatively crime free rural area. No idea why the cost is so high.

    It is very unfair, they assume all young male drivers are boy racers that hang around in McD's car parks doing handbrake turns and race each other at the lights. They base their quotes on stereotypes.
