拢364 might seem reasonable to some,but it鈥檚 a big hike from what we are paying now.We have full no claims,no points ,over 65 and live in the North Wales countryside.I have a z4 which is 拢160 to insure fully comp.

A lot of people forget that their old car is worth (say) 拢15-20k, and the new one is insured for 拢33k or whatever...so double the potential pay-out for insurers

My premium for the CHR rose by about 15% over my last car (Golf R) and is just over 拢300.
Clean license, 10+ ncb (max they will credit),, London/Surrey border, 60 yrs young
i have protected ncb, which seems a massive con as they hike the base rate if you claim anyway

I don鈥檛 feel <拢1 / day is that bad

Dealer told me putting air con on will not affect car performance ie acceleration as it does on pure petrol cars.Is this true?

拢527 for me.

Mid 40s male, license 25+ years, protected no claims discount 20+ years, no points, no outstanding claims or convictions, social domestic pleasure + commuting use, less then 8k miles per year & kept overnight in locked garage.

I could get insurance cheaper but it would mean a reduction in cover, higher excess & / or picking a company I've never heard of before.
