insurance again ( sorry !!!! ) which scooby???

hi ladies and gentlemen,
who am i kidding?
hi gentlemen,

Does anybody know which of the scoobies (excluding the sport) is the cheapest to insure, i want to find out if there is a big or small gap between the insurace price through the range, if it doesnt vary but a huge gap then it would be brilliant to get a newer model but as the saying goes beggars cant be chosers,
cheers

p.s any suggestions on insurance companies would be helpfull, ive been using confused.com but recently it hasnt been yeilding as good results for some reason, they sent an email saying insurance companies are pulling out of their site or something

would have thought uk turbos(classic) would be the cheapest however may have changed as theres that many parts being stolen from them (facelift front ends) try getting an online quote from someone like directline.

Most of the cars fall into the group 17-20 bracket :shock:

Am with subaru insured and with mods dedclared were the same as tescos.

Some (tescos included) insist on a tracker being fitted, Mine ok but car has to be garaged when at home over night.
Lots of the m dont like mods though

After getting quotes for the missus recently, the UK Turbo worked out cheaper to insure over the WRX.

think if i remember right wer just over 300 quid then depends if you want monitor or retrieve monitor costs about 110 quid/yr subscription or about 600 as a one off payment but obviously depends how long you intend keepin the car as to wether its worth it.
