We're pleased to announce that we have successfully negotiated with insurers to get them to relax some of the underwriting restrictions on a number of vehicles that this forum's members might own.

Previously we could only cover certain models if the driver was aged over 30 with one year's experience of driving the car. Now we can also offer you a quote if you are 25+

with 2 years' experience of driving the car or one of similar performance. The cars we can now quote for if you're 25+ with 2yrs experience are:

Citroen DS3 (performance models)
Civic Type R
Accord Type R
Integra Type R
Mini Cooper S
Renault Clio (performance models)
Seat Ibiza Cupra
Seat Leon Cupra
Toyota MR2 Turbo
Alfa GTV 3000cc
Audi TT 1800cc
Fiesta ST
Astra 888

Just give us a call when you renewal falls due and we'll do all we can to find you the best insurance deal.

Remember, if we can't quote for you it's not because we don't want to.

Funny these are all tin pot motors compared to some of the monsters some people own on here (think 400+bhp), really a Citroen DS3 is not insurable for a under 25?! I would class this as a go cart.

I love the way they agree to insure it if some other underwriter has taken the risk in the first two years.

The insurance industry is doing themselves no favours, it should be legislated that companies must offer insurance even if it's a stupid quote.

Even better a state run 3rd party option would stop this, perhaps linked to the plate of the car similar to Germany/Switzerland.

Perhaps now at 36 I was extremely lucky I could get something like this insured even if it cost me a arm and a leg!

The risk is no so much the car as the type of person who drives them, the vast majority of that list fall into, ahem, boy racer territory so no surprises. Whereas Jags are not appealing to boy racers, so we're lucky to have reasonable premiums for our 400+ hp monsters, so many of my friends scoffed at my 'grandads' car, until they had their first ride - THEN they understood why I have one ;)
