As Droo suggested, here is a list of threads people might like to check out, before starting another thread on insurance for us young drivers with GTi's. Hope some of you find this helpful. Also has some helpful information for helping the indecisive choose between third party and full comp insruance:

http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/vth.10921.insurance.htm

NEW THREAD (Swift Sport):

http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/vt.24208.htm

Ok, these threads I found within 15 mins of searching. I am aware that some are old, but I still thought they have some valuable information- about who pays what for insurance and so on.

I'll update this from time to time, when I get the chance to search for some more.

Hope this helps.

Jessica

Thanks guys, I just hope that people actually look at it... That or I hope they learn (like I had to) how to use the search button before starting another POINTLESS thread when there is obviously an abundance of information out there!
And maybe now I'l get over my annoying whinging :oops: :lol:

Just thought I'd add in a bit of information incase anyone actually reads this...

I'm currently in the process of buying a GTi (as oppose to my GA) and the cheapest insurance (full comprehensive) I could find was with Just Cars for $1333.

Being at my wits end and refusing to fork out so much money for a stock car (my boyfriends TURBO GTi was insured with them for $1400) I called up an insurance broker (I tried Elders Insruance here in Newcastle) and was quite surprised when I got a quote for $700(approx) and they actually cover some modifications!!!! Thats fully in my name, being a 20yo female, no claims/at fault accidents or suspensions.

I would definately reccomend that if anyone is unhappy with paying the big companies a s**t load of money then try a broker- I've had nothing but a good experience so far (even if I still haven't found the right car! :cry: )

If you are trying to find a broker in your area, visit:

http://www.needabroker.com.au/ it has a search engine for brokers based on your needs.

:D Jessica

just wanted to pose another question, my car's turbo and its not engineered, I only require 3rd party property cover ... do i have to tell them my car is turbo? And if i do, does it matter if its engineered or not? just wondering what the turbo owners do, cuz they're not all engineered.

Cheers

For any insurance you MUST disclose all information about your vehicle, If you dont, and you have an incident occur, they can completely wipe any claims and that means that you personally will be liable for ALL damages.

For my turbo car that isnt even finished, I have already advised my insurer that there is now a turbo fitted and have upped the amount of coverage - the vehicle will be engineered when finished.

They MAY give you coverage until it is engineered - but the final point is that you will still have to get it engineered. You are best always to talk to your insurer, you would be amazed at how easy they are to work with.

I am on first name basis with most of the guys from Shannons up here in Qld as I have so many vehicles and I am going in and out of their offices to get the vehicles checked etc. They are always interested in what ahs been done etc.

getting it engineered isnt exactly the final point, far from it. ive talked to a few people and officials etc, the amount of money we're expected to spend in Vic on engineering is pretty much pointless. I might get it engineered if i move to QLD or something lol.

I'll call some companies tommorow and ask around. see what happens.

When I bought my car in Feb 2007, I rang and got third party cover before I picked up the car. I had to ring later, to give them the licence plate number. Oh, and by the way its actually a Holden Barina Gti, not a Suzuki Swift GTi. The lady at the other end then proceeded to tell me it was in a different insurance bracket and I was entitled to a $22 refund! Even though it's an identical car !!!

Unbelievable.

Just for some research, i went on justcar and got a quote for my car, its 1,900$ a year for my gs.I've been thinking about getting an mk1 so i got a quote for comprehensive insurance, its 500$ cheaper for an 88 GTi ! Did i make a mistake? or is it because it's an older car?
