Insurance

Dumped Marks and Spencers after a row about winter wheels tyres and the fact they wanted 705 this year. Sainsburys - no problems about winter tyres, happy to use BMW approved body shops etc 363 with free breakdown cover - not that I need that. 450 total excess.

For a LCI 2010 e92 M sport 330i

And a 1000 Nectar points and double points for 2 years.


Bargain

Excellent deal.
What sort of NCB do you have and how many years of experience?
I guess I am paying too much.

Very good deal indeed.
I am paying over 1000 as I have only 3 years NCD and 1 accident (not my fault).
Did you get it through comparison websites or directly from sainsbury?

Tried both the main site was a couple of quid cheaper and gives 2 years double nectar points and you still get the 1000 points through confused if you get a quote via them and subsequently buy it. Best of both worlds.

I am getting ripped off.

Cheapest policy on a 325d was 1270

Thats at 26, with 7 years no claims and one non fault collision from December.

Whats that about? Some places wouldn't even insure me!

I pay 800 with admiral, 330i e90 in uxbridge

My tips you can use when buying insurance

-tweak your job description, changed from computer engineer to computer technician, saved me 150

-add your girlfriend/wife, even if she doesnt have DL, apply for provisional

- chepest marital status, Co-habiting, cheaper than married

- best place to keep car is street, cheaper than driveway or garage

- always put that you and your named driver have access to other cars

- best annual milage is 4-5k, anything lower or higher is more money


My original premium was 1500, after tweaks a lot less.

Good tips, with only two tweaks, it brought its down by 50.

Cheers.

Based upon my experience, If you get an online quote from admiral and don't buy, likely they follow it up with a call and an even better deal.
