when i get my new car, i will need to go with a new insurance company, becasue what i have now just won't cut it for a BMW, so does anybody know an insurer that has reasonable prices for a young driver, and also offers a choice of repairer?

You just have to shop around for the best deal.

I'm with AAI which is owned my Pensioners Insurance Agency, and my future cars will be with them...

I did some shopping but it seems like BMW Insurance is the best deal... for where I live (near Melbouren City).

got to say RAVC. I been with them for 10 years and have been great.

my family been with them for over 20 yrs. & never miss a beat. I suggest for young drivers use your parents name to insure fisrt and have your name registered as a driver on the policy when you 18. once you hit 26+ then you can insure under your name and you will be rating 2-1 if accident free. this will save lots and lots.... and still get full cover with excess if something happen.

I am 30 now and rating one, for my 320i exe. with a fair bit of options (+15k) I am only paying 720 pa. comprehensive.

NOTE: its not all about the cheapest... is about how they deliver the service when something really happen. dun go for the real small and cheap deals..as they dun want to know u when something happen ur car./

We use them to ensure our cars and they seem fine so far. Pricing is very competative and if you restrict the drivers to only a couple of people (age specific) it reduces the premium even further. Never had a claim so can't tell you how good they are when its time to do some work; hope to keep things this way
