F6 Insurance

I've been getting quotes on insuring the beast and thought I'd share them with you guys. I's been......er.....interesting!

The quotes are all for $64,000 , private use, single driver aged 45, max no-claim and no negative history.


NRMA: $2358.00 (plus windscreen..$58.00)

AAMI: $1489.00 but require satellite tracking installed

JUSTCAR: $3036.00

SHANNONS: $1417.00 (but has a limited use clause)

NRMA and SHANNONS also offer lifetime no-claim protection.

Re: F6 Insurance

What state are you in?
RACV is nearly always cheapest in Victoria.

I'm in NSW so the NRMA rates will be equivalent to RACV.

Re: F6 Insurance

Oh my god!
Is insurance that had to get on a GT as well or is it just because the F6 is forced?

Re: F6 Insurance

For me here in VIC 32 y/o

GT insurance at an agreed value of $65,000 was just under $1700 p.a. through the RACV. And that's with no insurance history at all, as my prior employers have self insured their fleets.

I would expect the F6 to be more expensive, and am hoping for about $2500 or less

Re: F6 Insurance

I don't see why the F6 would be more expensive....it just doesn't make sense. Shannons were happy to insure me calling the vehicle a "modified" XR6 turbo as they didn't have details on the F6 at the time.
One thing that does make a considerable difference is the address where the vehicle will be kept. Anywhere in Sydney is notoriously expensive.


XR6child...
I wouldn't call the quotes by Shannons or AAMI particularly dear for the vehicle at all and it's certainly not hard to get. Just obviously worth a lot of shopping around for as the differences are amazing.

Re: F6 Insurance

Yes, there is a huge variation in quotes with any car. I had quote on mine ranging from $1000 to $500 which I pay. And yes, age and location have a lot to do with it. Some give you a discount if it is locked up at night, some dont. You can also get discounts if you agree that no-one under 30 driving it will be covered.

It DEFINITELY pays to look around. I am with Allianz at the moment, I'd be curious to see what they would insure the F6 for actually....

Re: F6 Insurance

Location makes more difference than people realise - im an insurance broker & was playin around with a few quotes & did a quote for myself for a 200sx here on the gold coast. Premium was around $1200. Then i kept chaniging the suburb around to see the difference in premiums. Cabramatta in NSW was the worst - premium jumped to above $9 grand. The i put the no claim bonus to 0 & it went to $21k!

Re: F6 Insurance

XRchic.....

I rang Allianz (twice in fact) and both times they've rung me back requesting more information before telling me they'll ring me back with a "final quote". That final quote I've been waiting for for over a week so i'm a little peed off with them. I'd heard they were good tho (I think Ford Insurance is underwritten by Allianz, but I could be wrong).

GTP151....

Yeah, I saw some of those posts before and I guess it just confirms what everyone experiences, especially with a new model. Theres certainly some smaller companies around willing to offer cheaper rates, but I'm kind of reluctant to go with a cheapie.
Also, even when I told NRMA I'd been offered premiums under $1500 they wouldn't budge.
