Youngest 172/Cup Owner

  Lionel Richie

Are you all on your own insurance??? Im going under my mums but i think im going to have to wait a year until im 20


I honestly think im still 18 and just left college!!!

Mind you, I could not afford the insurances on the WRX, Elise and CUP, so there are down and upsides to every age group!!!

WRX - £1040

Elise - £920

CUP - £940 (I had to start off new insurance for this hence No no-claims)

They are all for the wife (26) and I

  Mk4 MX-5, Smart 451

danny boy what is your insurance like for the cup then? Mine is going to be £1550 with Tesco, 2 yrs ncb, 3 points sp30, fully comp.

Gaz 2130

its £1300 fully comp for me.

Just had a quote on a P1 Scooby which I plan to get next year and then use the Cup as a track/quartermile car.

I cant repeat what they told me...


Im 21 (that was 8 years ago by the way.....)

Just spent £2k on a new tele when I could of had a new set of 17s on the car as well as some other mods. Am I crazy??

£2k on a new television? You must be crackers, as surely there isnt much worth watching these days! Even £1k would have been a bit over the top, but £1,000 on the TV and the wheels might have made a bit more sense!

:cry: might be me......LOL

20 now on my 2nd 172.

had a MK1 when i was just turning 19.......dont sound so good does it ....LOL....

but again, the cars were free (sponsorship) and insurance is company paid, and its a fixed feee in HK, depending on NCB %. 0% and you pay just under £ quibbles no arguements......

But i dont pay that spoilt!???.....i work my little pampers wearing bottom off!

GR - worth it just to watch Top Gear, 5th gear and Driven!

Saying that, I suppose I should have asked for your advice before spending the dosh first!

Did you ever get round to giving Thomas his washing, waxing and plenty of TLC?

DannyBoy - Only an Induction and ECU Remap along with uprated brakes, lowered and non-standard alloys - the induction alone increased it by £140!

Have we get any Coffin Dodgers on the board then ?
I am in the above bracket, although my 172 has the engine in the wrong place and some fat bits stuck on it.

Everytime I see a 172 driven by babies I imagine them in a coffin quite soon.

Im 26 - £1000 fully comp - got a lovely quote from Endsleigh before I decided to stick with ASA - £8547 !!!!!! Whats that all about - insurance for a lears jet for a day would be cheaper!

b******s. That makes me rather ancient around here at 36. But then again I paid £438 for my Cup insurance, protected no claims, for both me and my wife... Not bad.

hmmm, 24 3 yrs ncd, no claims, no points.................£1400! CIA. And that really was the cheapest (Manchester postcode.....damn it!)

  Scirocco GT TSi DSG

Im 26, 25 when I bought my 172, £1,200 3 years no claims, 8 1/2 years driving, no accidents (yet).

Im 20, I think this makes me the youngest owner of a 172.

My prize? Anual payment of £1602 to Tesco Insurance Ltd - LOL.
