Insurance...

What do we all think the 86 and BRZ will cost for insurance.

I will most prob have to go with Just Car Ins as I am not over 25 so no other insurance will cover me.

I am hoping this will be different as this isn't a turbo car :P

I currently am paying 1200 a year for my Aristo which is a twin turbo car...

So I hope it's alot less then that!!!

I'd think it should cost me around $800 with Shsnnons.

That's what I'm currently paying for my Golf GTI.

For perspective, as a 26yo my MX-5 SE (factory turbo) was $1050 a year through QBE. That was with only a $500 excess and car value of 30k.

At 28, I'm expecting insurance for the 86 to be similar, perhaps a little cheaper.

Naturally aspirated will be a whole bucket of win here, haha.

Just got a quote through Just Car Insurance. Based on an MX5 with a sale price of $40,000 (I figured that was the closest comparison based on drivetrain, power:weight ratio, etc)... it was $914 with a $400 excess or $846 with a $600 excess. That's based on me being the youngest driver (at age 25) and in a lower-middle class suburb.

Just realised I no longer have an extra age excess since I turned 25 in October. Winning! Pity I no longer have a turbo car now...

Turned out pretty good with Just Car.

So 22 Year old said car was 40k... agreed value.
lower - mid class neigh.
$936 Per Amm.
Exess 400
+ Age 22 - 25 year excess 350.

So I am pretty happy with that!!!

I'm paying $1,760 with Just Car - 22 yo, lower-middle class neighbourhood, MY10 Impreza 2.0 R

Excess $550 + Age $600 + Ad-Just $200

Probably because I reside in Victoria?

Tis bullshit that you have to wait to the age of 25 to start to see your insurance premiums come down.

At one point i was considering a runabout 1.2 polo TSI, the insurance companies where wanting 1200-1400k just because the motor was forced induced, regardless of the tiny motor cubic capacity.

dumb.

Insurance for the BRZ and 86 has got to be cheap due to the naturally aspirated motor configuration. Im assuming insurance will be around the Mazda MX5 range. Maybe a tad cheaper than what Smacca gets for his Mazda.

Your insurance policy should say it...

But you start on 5 and it increase/decreases each year you don't have a crash...

Talking about insurance costs is like talking about "how much do you spend at the grocery store?" There are too many factors that play into insurance premiums. Even your zip code makes a difference. The best thing an individual can do is shop his own local market and go with the one that seems the best.

Dont count on turning 25 giving you a break. I turned 25, no other factors changed, and my insurance went up $100. Mine is due next month so I will see how it goes.

I am with justcar.

$1100 full coverage, 18k agreed value. I have a feeling its because the agreed value is high, which I am going to ask about reducing. I should probably have the car knocked off - get twice as much for it at this rate!

like i said its due again in a month so maybe its come down? I turned 26 last week so I was well and truly 25 before my last renewal.

I've heard that Evos are cheaper to insure due to most young people being unable to afford them - hopefully its similar with the 86.

update on my insurance changes.

just car has modified the agreed value (on their own, not my input) to 14750. I also turned 26 last month, and my insurance is now $653.

it seems the break occurs around 26 rather than 25.

You guys have it good down under. Us here in the metropolitan cities in the US pay out our arses in insurance premiums. I wish I paid something close to $1,000 USD a year for my car insurance.
