I too am looking for insurance and having the same problem. One thing i did notice was that taking my mum off the insurance brought it down and putting my parter on brought it down. Makes no sense to me as my partner has only 3 years no claims where as my mum has about 15 years.
It's a lottery with insurance. I've found Direct Line are the cheapest for me though and they are not on the price comparison websites.
I was £700 paying monthly at 20 years old and 2 years NCD. Thought that wasn't too bad for a 2.0 pertol, business use, 15k a year and parked on a drive way. Especially the amount of stolen cars in Aberdeen in the past year or so.
That's with my Mum and my Partner as named drivers too.
It's all a con because it's compulsory so we all need it, they have us by the balls because there are no regulations on pricing. I think there should be official limits into what they can charge us.
Yeah that's my problem. I think most of the aftermarket exhausts are designed to fir the zetec s bumper so i may need to modify and was worried how it would turn out. Taking a bit of inspiration from yours though:)
Looks good. Liking the changes you've made so far. Amazing the difference a set of wheels make:)
Think you've done exactly what im going for in terms of exhaust. Out of interest did you need to modify the standard bumper for the tailpipe to fit correctly? I'm looking at a Jetex system but not keen on changing bumper's, yours looks great so you've given me hope it might work:P
