Gotta ask.. what the christ is the go with insurance companies these days??.. You drive a decent car and they sting you for it. Doesn't matter a pinch of sh!t that you have sat tracking in it, a hungry rotty at each wheel ready to pounce on any theiving pr!cks.. and an alarm loud enough to shatter windows in a 14 mile radius.. you still drive a nice car.. here's your bill.. :fmad: C'mon Ford.. where's this Ford Insure we keep reading about.. How about rates for enthuisiasts??..

We had insurance for our 'special' car through Unique, but wouldn't rercommend them. Spoke to Shannons at the Melbourne Motor Show (took the Unique renewal notice with us) and they happily matched the price and suggested a range of options for us. Our bill isn't nearly as scary as yours but we are covered for limited use of the car. Suits us, we only drive it occasionally anyway.

Our daily drivers we insure through whoever is the cheapest.

Seems insurance is on the way up across the board no matter what you drive. I had a $100 increase and I questioned them on it. They knocked 50 off just because I pulled them up over it.

I was reading wheels the other day, and it seems that all over the U.S the insurance premiums are dropping - because the government took the blanket 55mp/h speed limit off their highways.

But the pigs here won't do that, its too good a business to increase the speedlimits, so they won't get as much money back. But in the west, theyre going to consider lowering the highway limit to 100km/h. I know for a fact that no-one will do that ridiculously low limit, and if they do, then we're strangely going to see all of these driver fatigue advertising campaigns.

heres a better idea - have a system where you take your car over the pits for an inspection, you can get a special window sticker thats different from your rego sticker, that certifies that your vehicle is capable of safely doing something like 150 km/h. You pay the transport dept some money for this sticker, then youre allowed to do the higher limit safely. But then again, speeding tickets are more profitable...

And that seems to be the problem. I hope they get their act together by the next time I go to buy a new Ford.

Here.. Here.. Anything that'll help me get into the seat of an XR8 is good news.. The money for the house is nearly sorted.. Car's next.. Insurance is another matter all together..
If the insurance kills me then it'll be a bit more of a wait..

We have it cheap compared to the US, for a Mustang or Camaro youd be looking at US$200 a month or so, and yes thats over $4000 a year in the Aussie dollar.

The UK is similar if my memory is correct, about 2000 Pounds a year for just a Focus or similar.
