    Tesco also do it, which is why I now have 6 years no claims and a policy in my own name. :D

    :hehe: Thanks for finding the exception. Specialist insurance always fouls things up. Classic is the worst for that.

    I heard about a guy who bought himself a 205 with an Mi16 conversion, turbo'd it up to 400hp with a RWD conversion, then insured it for £400/year on a classic policy. :\

    We (fiancée and me) are just sorting out the paper work to complete our latest purchase.

    05 Impreza WRX STI (UK) PPP - £480 fully comp. I'm 30 she is 28 but the car has a tracker which i think lowers it by one insurance group.

    Hot damn. Please tell me it's WR blue with gold alloys.

    Any mods? Turbo timer and anti-lift kit is about all they need from what I've heard.

    I wouldn't reccomend people to do this, as Zoon said. It's illegal, can get you 6 points on your license pretty quickly for no insurance. And also Insurance companies can sue you for Insurance fraud which could end up with you going to Jail.

    So I've been driving now for a few weeks and thought I should update you guys! I brought a Fiat Cinquecento Sporting 1.1i. I paid £450 for it and I really like It. The insurance wasn't to bad :)

    a turbo timer is needed if you want to extend the life of your turbo charger.

    Its not a power modification, and your wallet will thank you for it.

    No, it isn't needed. Just don't go into boost for a few minutes before you turn the engine off...
