Remember that your insurance will go up into the 5k regions with the mods you have planned. I personally feel that its best to stay simple for the first few years to get a few years NCB under your belt (Will you still get these being an added driver?)

Also, i look forward to seeing you at a few meets in the summer? Click the link in my Signature to put your name and location down ;)

Quick question, Why buy a car that costs as much to insure as it does to buy?

E-bay is your best bet

You should be banned from driving, period. Do it the right way or dont do it at all. If I had your details, I would report you to the Police/insurance company STRAIGHT away. Your one of the reasons why insurance costs so much in the first place. God forbid if you seriously injure/kill someone while driving.

Agreed, as a young driver my self i totally understand your problem, but its far better to bite the bullet and make sure your fully insured under your own name, then along as your sensible your insurance will come down dramatically year on year.

Theres no way around it, especially if the cars your name, they will simply presume your the main driver and bump it right up.

Now im not going to beat around the bush whats the point but im just another young driver here, if the car would cost as much to insure as buy, why buy it. I had the money to buy a vectra gsi which i really wanted and still do but i coudalnt insure it and cant til im at least 20 and my points go away.

I know this is old hat now but seriousally its people !Removed! round with the insurance that bumps everyone elses up i dont want you to get taken of the roads etc but driving is a privladge for all of us and its the few flys in the ointment that s**t it all up for the rest of us.

I've known people who've had this done to them and theyve lost there licence AND there car and everyone laughed at them and they also got banned for a few years if i remember correctly. In summary, SORT ur insurance out properly its just not worth the risk.

Although I feel your pain mate I agree with everyone else! A lot of insurance companies are wise to this and simply won't insure sons/daughters on parents policies anymore for this very reason! Which I find totaly annoying as it means I can't shift my Dad's car off the drive to get my car off in the morning!

Do what everyone else does buy a !Removed! banger for your first car and insure it cheap, get 1 or 2 years NCB under your belt and then get a nice car!

Also the thing is until you get some NCB or are 25 years old your insurance is always gonna be massive! Gonna be a named driver on your Mum's policy then?

People are right tho, it's reasons like this that premiums are so !Removed! high ...
