Insurance for Modded XR8's

Hey just wondering who you fellas use to insure your cars with espically modded cars with not so good drivers, um like me. I rang just car insurance today and to insure a BA XR8 for $40,000 they quote 5200 and 5750 with mods full zorst euc, lowered, pullies, cai. Now i am a rating 6 driver as i never had insurance in my name before. I've had a small crash that I paid for and didnt claim, they dont care cause i didnt claim, plus i got booked for speeding which they dont care about. Anyone else in the same boat i thought it would be higher but its still a little high, any other compaines i should try. Yea and im only 19.

Re: Insurance for Modded XR8's

how the hell can a 19yr old afford a BA XR8, well anyway ya gonna find it hard to get insurance and if you do it will be well over $5000! Most dont insure under 25's with V8's. Easiest thing to do is put it in your mum or dads name.

Re: Insurance for Modded XR8's

I found it hard enough when i was 23 and bought my first XR6, an XG Ute.

But when i found someone who would insure me fr $700, i jumped at it.

Re: Insurance for Modded XR8's

well ive got nothing else to spend my money on, and yea justcars quoted me $5750 for a modded xr8. My ef xr8 is in dads business name as it only costs $12oo a year, thats through a broker and im not mentioned on the policy either. But that was still cheaper than the N.R.M.A quote of $10,200, for an EF. Just wondering if theres any other's out there that might insure ME!

Re: Insurance for Modded XR8's

Spend your money wisely young grasshopper.

Anything over $3000 for insurance is just a waste.
Stay with the car you have, get your own insurance and work your way up to a better rating then go all out & get the car of your dreams.

Cheers
