    Buying back from insurance

    Has anyone done it with a 172 in the £1,000-£1,500 price range of late. If so how much did you have to pay to get the car back? Early days yet as my insurer doesn't know about the damage but need to have a chat with them tomorrow. Trying to decide whether fixing it is feasible.

    Insurance - What to pay for a 182?

    I just wondered if anyone would recommend a particular insurance company? I live in the Wakefield area, have a 04 Clio 182 (standard other than upgraded exhaust) 3 points, 9 years NCB, and I’m 34. The best renewal quote is around £430 (with NC protection) does this seem a fair price? Cheers

    Is anyone insured with Elephant that has 5 or more years NCB? I'm currently with Elephant earning what should be my 6th year of NCB, but I just updated my policy and noticed the most NCB they take is 5 years. Does this mean that when I finish this year, I'll still be capped on 5?
