Insurance is higher round here but the cost of living is cheaper.

This is the thing, if you can afford it and see the value you in it then carry on.

If you can't afford it or would rather spend that money elsewhere then then get rid.

As it is you can afford it so there is no right answer here.

That's what I was going to say... if you can afford it, and it's something you want, then pay it! If it's draining you too much, get rid.

But oh my gawd, that's a lot of money to pay for insurance. What NCB you got? I'm paying over £100 less than that a month on the Pulsar. But I am an old git now.

It will die soon, and I'd rather have a car with less rust, which suprisingly is a Fiat Uno the same age as me.

Nah can't get it cheaper, one of the accident claims (one i had on Fsi trip in 2008) comes off the insurance July 20th and renewal is 12th :doh:

Ive decided to keep, partly made by the pathetic Px offer on a car like a Focus ST of just £5.5k

Going to keep this one :) Just going to take longer to get it upto standard i want

Im 2 years NCB atm btw, postcode is 2nd down from the best post codes too :doh:

Buy temporary car insurance for 2 weeks.

Then insure it again when the accidents gone, get a cheaper quote and pay monthly.

Whenever you pay monthly you have to pay a deposit.

Not when you renew with the same company.
