RS3 Insurance

So I'm going through the renewal process at the moment as I added the RS3 onto my previous policy last month which expires at the end of this month. I've looked at all the usual places/comparison sites and I'm shocked at the prices... Cheapest I've found is £450! Bargain! I was paying £650/£700 on my previous car (an S3) so i'm baffled as to why the RS3 is considerably less. Has anyone else seen this?

I just renewed as well £450 parked on the street in London - that has come down from £700 for last car (clapped out Golf v6 4mo). As you say - reckon its the lack of data that it hasn't been correctly risk priced yet.

Given there has been a couple of write-offs so far hopefully there won't be a big bounce this time next year!

Thanks for the responses. Lack of data sounds like the most obvious reason - let's hope there's still a lack of data this time next year to keep the premiums down :)

Direct Line gave me a cheaper quote when I changed from my 1.8L TT to my RS3 in January, 6 months ago. Ok, it was end Jan, but all my other quotes were in the £1,000 range where the RS3 with DL was about £450 I think. I was 35, had nil points, 10 yrs no claims, on business insurance, parking in garage at home and car not modified. Also, I left off break down as already member of RAC despite Audi gives free break down cover & I think I just paid for legal cover, not 100% sure if I did as I have slept a bit since.

Also got GAP when I got the car, same as when I got my TT. Now some people don't think much to this, but due to paying £40k for it, I think it is worth getting it.

Hmm with insurance savings like these because the car is new/un-measured ... those savings would offset depriciation and outlay ... that's what im trying to tell myself ... i'm actually saving money if I bought one!


... then back to earth, where dodgy accounting doesn't work in the household.
