Hey all, just got back from ibiza to recieve my insurance renewal

over monthly payments the Focus has gone up to £170 a month! :shock:

Now in theory i can afford that, but i dont want to as a Fiesta Si was only £75 a month and a fiesta ST is £100 a month for comparison, I even am considering doing that or getting a newer shape ZS

But i want to ask on here, if i can afford the rediculous amount should i just cough up, its the cheapest quote i can get for the car :frown: I love it but i also love money too :insanity:

Its quite expensive to pay every month.
Id probably opt for the cheaper to insure car if a fiesta st is only £100 a month but then that depends in how well the focus drives because sometimes its worth paying extra if you can afford it for the better car.

I was paying over 200 a month to drive my rs1800 and I am afraid to say I would pay it again because I loved to drive it
That was with 1 year experience and 0 ncb :doh:

When you say paying monthly, what APR are they charging? it could be cheaper to use a credit card (as long as you stick to paying it over the year, with that there is also cashback deals which can knock a good amount off the policy.

Also try adding different people top the policy and see if it reduces it.

Personally I wouldn't even touch a car with insurance like that, as I keep saying I bought a C2 as the insurance group is mazing for what you get.

Get rid.
Waste of money.
You could drive something with decent power which is alot cheaper.. just got to find the best of both worlds IMO.

I vote Ry's idea if you wanted to go to a MK6 Fiesta again - thats what I'd be doing if I could afford to buy one.

When I'm done with the Teg, I'm going Diesel! Can't beat it for day to day driving. Though I plan for it to have an M badge so still not the most economic :lol:

How much does everyone else pay for insurance? :insanity:

Post subject:  Re: Stay with the Focus ST or cave in?

I pay £114 a month with 1 ncb

What was your insurance before it went up?

GAY get rid
bet you could insure a cossie for less.

I pay £45 a month for the scrote lol

Author:  Percy [ Wed Jul 06, 2011 12:22 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Stay with the Focus ST or cave in?

As much as I love the scrote, the extra £70 a year insurance is well worth it to me.

Yeah I want a better car, I just cant afford to buy one :lol:

The only upgrade I can do is a downgrade to a Fiat Uno 45s, and that can fuck right off.

Post subject:  Re: Stay with the Focus ST or cave in?

TBH if a Fiesta ST is still £100 a month for you, I'd simply look at getting a cheaper/faster car or stick with the Focus. I won't tell you how much I pay on mine because it would make you feel even worse!

Might as well stick with it because if you want to stay Ford, you probably won't find anything as enjoyable for cheaper as the Mk6 ZS TDCi looks to be a great car - it's still a downgrade and to save 70/80 quid a month.. Well you're only young once and it isn't the largest sum of money to pay on top of what you would pay - As long as you really DO get the enjoyment out of it. :)

Tell them you are visiting Oldhamistan for a day and see it double. :lolz:

With that I wouldn't want to pay for a house around there.
