and if the performance and road presence are as good as people say.

also looking for insurance companies to try if anyone has any suggestions bearing in mind i am 21 and i no insurance companys can be a wee bit nasty
 
  LY V6 with Recaros
I'm 23 and did a quote on a v6 with Admiral, it was £1300. That wasn't as bad as I was expecting with 3 points and 3ncb, but still alot!

yes it is. I swapped my 172 for a V6 255 and never regretted it for a moment :D

yes they are :D

Tesco wanted double what I was paying for my 172. Ended up with Norwich Union Direct - was just a couple of hundred more than the 172.

DO IT!!!

i have no informative, technical, or suggestive answer...

... just do it, and worry about all that later. V6's bring out the sex wee in all of us

Im 22 got my mk1 v6 about 5 months ago after a valver, its road presence, sound and looks are amazing, the car turns everyones head. Perfomance is pretty good too.

The only bad(ish) points are the lack of pasengers you can carry, boot space and its BIG thirst for petrol, but you can live with that.

Ive got 2 years ncb, my best quote, on confused was with 'more than', £1050, thats with my girlfriend as a named driver.
