Hi, I've recently turned 17 and I have my heart set on a 1.6 147.

As this will be my first car, the insurance will obviously be sky high as I will be looking to get my own policy too. Do you think i should just give up on it and look at something in a lower insurance group?

If anyone has any estimates on how much it could cost too, that would be appriciated.


Cheers.

Hi ya mate:D The best thing to be would do a few online quotes that way you will know where you stand. I have bin driving for 7 years and my first years insurance was £619 3rd party f&t so bet yours is going to be around £1k mark. Just a guess really but dont give up hope do a online quote.

P.s I have a 3.2 V6 GTA 147! Nahnahanah:p

Go on, look NOW!!!

Best bet is to hit the agregator (gocompare,confused, money supermarket). should help you work out who's competitive in your area. A few companies aren't going to quote for you at that age but put your mother on the policy with you, look at policies to build your ncb quicker

19k that just takes the p-i-s-s! Still I remember when I first started driving :rolleyes: not good! So much fun though, went through a 30mph just under 85 mph flat out! Always getting pulled for racing-2-

My first car was a 1.2 Clio and the cheapest quote i got on my own insurance fully comp was £1350. I think unfortunatly you'll be looking at silly prices for insurance if they will cover you at all on a 1.6 147. My advise would be get something smaller to begin with and work up a few years NCB which is what ive done.

What about Direct Line? They offer NCB for named drivers but then again you would have to get you 'rents to change companies. If they are a crap price they aint gona want to do that!

I've just turned 24, have had a license for over 6 years, 1 years NCB, never had any sort of accident, and my 147 1.6 costs me just over £1000 fully comp.

Buy a scooter.

Im 21, 4yrs No Claims, Got a 1.6 TS 147, Modified, and without the AO Discount i Paid about £700, Its due next month so Will defo be giving Dan a Call at Flux's,

My 1st car was a '92 Polo 1043cc and that was just over 1k to Insure,

You may be better off going for an older Alfa, or just something different with a Smaller engine, But dont forget about the 147! you will get one oneday! :thumbs:

it is also worth looking at cashbacktoyou.co.uk once you choose a company, if you buy your insurance through there website you may be able to get a nice percentage back. only a few companys on there though but worth a look.

There two versions of the 1.6.. one has 105BHP the other 120... go for the 105BHP one and insurance should be more reasonable

Yep get the 105bhp and get a remap and maybe "forget" to tell insurance they will never know:D
