Saying goodbye to my 2 year old Toyota IQ on Friday before picking up my Adam on Saturday! It's going to be emotional but I'm moving on to better things and I am so excited!!

It's going to be hard for me because I have a 61 Kia Picanto 2 and I absolutely love it! If anyone said they wanted a nice city car with less money than an Adam, I would definitely recommend the Picanto! It's been my trusty pal for 8 month but I couldn't resist the Adam so goodbye pretty little Kia!

Have to be careful... If our Cars hear us they may decide to give up before we get our Adams... For those who still have their cars that is :)

I have a 61 plate Ka in that weird red/orange/pink colour they do for free. I absolutely love him and I'm so sad to see him go, but I just couldn't resist the li'l Adam! I'll only be paying £20 more per month for the Adam than the Ka so it's a no brainer really!

Sooty the Vrs
Sooty was a limited edition skoda Octavia Vrs number 304 of 500.
I do miss the power and the stupidly sized boot but gizmo (my purple fiction glam) more than makes up for this in other ways.
I might go back to a big car again one day, the insurance was killing me I was still paying over £900 a year with 5 years no claims 0 points/convictions, gizmo costs me the princely sum of £330 a year ;)
Definite no brainer in that department!

The vrs is a good car..... I had one but only 285 quid a year to insure it....

I don't know how companies come up with these vast price differences

I've been convinced for a long time that insurers get
a tom bola and take out 6 numbers mix them around to make the biggest
Cash sum possible then throw a dot in! Lol

I did a comparison site search, using my own basic details......

The insurance quotes ranged from 223quid a year to 2134quid a year form different companies.....and the expensive didn't include legal cover or courtesy car!!!!!!!!!!!

NUTS!!!

I pay around 360 a year for a trade policy, and I can have 5 cars or vans..... 3 bikes all insured as my own, and still drive anything whether its insured or not.....

Insurance companies need to get their act together

sorry rant over

Ode to being a young driver...

Perhaps not, from what I can tell, I seem to be the youngest here, or at least one of the youngest... Your top quote of insurance is still a few hundred pounds cheaper than what I paid for first year of insurance :) Although this year I am hoping for just under the £500 mark, I would be happy with that...

I pay £1000 with 4 years driving but 0 no claims because I've changed my car too often. My Adam is £638 with finally one year no claims :) I thought it would've been far more!
