    Then you might want to persuade the rest of your gender to cut down on the recklessness!

    That's rather crazy that since I'm a girl, my insurance is less than half of what it would be if I was a guy!
    That is sexism! you having cheaper car insurance is also sexism! Germaine Greer is hopefully seeing this.

    Though is it necessarily any more discriminatory than not betting on a three legged horse to win the grand national.

    Blokes crash cars, fact of life, why should women have to pay for it?

    There is no correlation either way, if you can show me any sound evidence for this then please share.

    Although yes, most chavs in town centres are usually male, so that will contribute.

    That doesn't really prove anything either way about gender, just highlights that a very small percentage of drivers cause everyone else's insurance to go up in price. The reason male car insurance prices suffer more can easily be put down to a stereotypical view of men as boy racers in the media. But this is off topic.

    Anyone else know of a site better than Quinn-Direct? And would anyone recommend not driving for a year as the quote actually goes down a couple of hundred? Just I'm worried about 'forgetting how to drive'.

    I thought you meant around 200 BHP. You won't even be able to get to 100MPH
    Wanna bet?

    My van, which has a smaller engine, 50bhp when new (38 years ago) will hit 80 mph on the motorway... and that weighs almost twice as much as the Beetle...

    70bhp in my Beetle, which weighs 730kg is equivalent to having 140bhp in a large family saloon/estate car...

    Im sure it was Admiral. I'm 17, passed my test 2 months on monday. An insurance compaines worst nightmare!:mad:

    My dad did say he had a multi-car thing. My sister's car and his car were also insured with the company bringing the quote down alittle. However, he got a quote for his BMW 735i (2002 model) for about £180 with points on his license. Worth getting a quote from them.

    *Have your parents as named drivers
    *do pass plus
    *have an undesirable car that no one wants as your first car
    These should help bring it down a bit

    the guy at the insurance company actually said because it has no cool factor and the chances of me using it wrecklessly are low that knocked £57 off my insurance.

    My insurance when I first started was around 900 I think. That was a 1.1 litre N reg ford fiesta, I was the named driver & there were no 2nd drivers on it or anything. That was with direct line, and we had our other cars with them so that made it a little cheaper I think.

    I've now got a years no claims, 1.0 litre T reg nissan micra...and it's 650ish
