You can easily add another 0 on the end of that, you won't get insurance for any car for much less than 2k per annum at that age.

Me and Mrs Cozza will get a bit pee'd off by that

Joel [my lad] is always "boasting" over a Audi A8 4.2 Quattro LPG he found in Preston for under 5,000

I checked on my iPhone about how much the insurance will be, and it was 950

Right then

Lucy came up to me just now, still in her clothes and UGGS after returning from her friend's birthday party, and said: "Dad, if money was no object I'd buy a new VW Beetle 2.5 62 plate "

I said: "Stick with your Audi 1.6 you and Joel want to get "

Loving the detail you put in to your posts, Coza.

We know your and your son/daughter's DOB and middle names, the month your wife told you something, her occupation and favourite shoe type, what your daughter was wearing this evening and where you shopped and what you bought, and that's just scratching the surface. Brilliant. Welcome to the forum from me.

One that looks vaguely like this as that's the only way you'll insure them:
__________________
2003 D2 FL S8. Irish Green Pearl/Beige. Solar sunroof, auto-dim mirrors, electric rear seat functions, ski hatch retrofit; extended leather. Aftermarket DVB-T, reversing camera and full XCarlink (Bluetooth etc.).
2016 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country (4WD) with ALL the toys including adaptive cruise etc. etc. Osmium Grey with Blonde/Charcoal leather interior. Polestar performance "optimisation". (A much rarer model than a D2 S8 by the way!)
Finally: gone, but not forgotten.....
1998 D2 PF S8. AgateGrey/Platinum. Every option (I think) except electric rear seats, tiptronic steering wheel, ski hatch, towbar & dimming door mirrors.
e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)
1998 (very early) Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec; ABS/TCS, Heated screen/mirrors, Aircon, Auto-dim mirror, Leather, Trip computer, Cruise control, OEM Ford SatNav with CD changer.

Cheap petrol or diesel A3 or A2 for an Audi

TBH, I'd look at something in the group 3-4 category for insurance to keep it down for at least the first year.
