    Its third party fire and theft, not fully comp - yes I am a named driver.

    Its cheaper because its admiral multi-car so its a big discount as me moved 3 cars to them, and where we live is like the lowest crime in the uk, and I dunno why else.

    When I get a new car, I have already planned to go onto Admiral. Are they good? Quinn Direct (which I'm on now) used to be the cheapest and now they're like 5th cheapest on comparing sites.

    About 1500 on the car, and 1050 on the insurance. Can't imagine doing it much cheaper.

    £500 pounds for a 1997 R registration Peugeot 106 XN 1.1L.
    Around £960 for insurance.
    Around £120 for 1 year of tax.

    It's old. And it's basic (no ABS, no power steering, no central locking, no electric windows). But it does the job that any other car does, and it does it well. I've had no problems with it in the year that I've had it. No breakdowns, no expensive parts needing replaced, nothing. It's been great.

    I would recommend a banger on the basis that most people have 'little bumps' in their first year of driving, and while they don't matter much on a Peugeot 106, you'd be furious if they were on, say, a brand new Corsa. I haven't had any bumps, but if I had, that would by justification for having a 'wee banger'.

    8.5k + 1k insurance. My insurance is remarkably cheap considering I'm an 18 y/o male driving a 2.0 TD car worth over 8 grand. Do some research before you buy. Insurance companies seem to consider the ford focus and a some others as low risk for some reason, so the quotes are more realistic.

    My mum did the paying and stuff since it was for our my dads car and the landrover as well, so it makes it a bigger discount - but she said they were good and everything and she got a discount of like £200 by asking and saying we had a cheaper quote.

    The guy warned her that if it is my car then I should be down as the main driver, not named, but she told him that the car is in her name etc. so he was like ok about it.

    Have you ever had experience with the insurance, say, an accident? Our fiesta was smacked into onto a dual carriageway and the guy who drove into us said it was our fault (which is clearly a lie because we would've had to of been driving sideways lol) and Quinn Direct took ages to get our compensation... I'd hate to think what they'd be like on an accident where the fault wasn't so obvious...

    Yes that is the truth and I was a 17 year old male, although I wasn't the main driver.

    Edit: That was on a Golf GL 1.8 if you're wondering what car it was.
