    Does anyone know a website i can find more about insurance groups on? I can't seem to find anwhere.

    I was looking at two cars... the first one was slightly older, less powerfull and on insurance group 3
    The second car was a year older, and more powerfull, but was on insurance group 2e.

    I couldn't get hold of one of their numberplates to add to a comparison site, so i was wondering what was cheaper, insurance group 2e or 3.. i'd guess 3 but it doesn't seem logical.. :confused:

    Thanks

    Insurance group doesn't seem to make much of a difference these days, my brothers car was group 11 and mine 5 yet they were both the same price.

    an insurance quote considers several things not just the car itself - eg the driver, your postcode, etc

    i've had license for 4yrs with 2yrs ncb and my quote nearly doubled from group 3 car to a group 8 car

    I know there are other factors but in this case it was all the same, the only difference was the car. Same postcode, same age at the time of each quote, same time driving, same occupation, same annual mileage, the lot. Don't ask why our IG's were different, but what's even funnier is both cars were the same power, number of doors and mileage, just his was in a stupid group.
