Depending on your circumstances (age etc) Tesco and Keith Michaels seem to be a favourite with Subaru drivers, Liverpool Victoria are very good for us although they are getting mixed views at the moment.

Try a search engine like this one www.theinsurancecentre.co.uk as it will look at over 450 different policies and save you messing about calling them all.

I hope this helps

Thanx for your help so far, keep them coming!!
Im with liverpool victoria, as get staff discount, but to be quite honest, they have been bloody useless with me, and a claim, that was ongoing for 2yrs!! As a result of their poor processes in place, I had to accept 50/50 for an old bird that pulled out on a big roundabout, right in front of me, and t-boned her. It took a year b4 they got a statement from the copper, and off duty fire chief that helped with traffic, Funnily enuf, they couldn remember clearly events!!!!

If I can give you guys any advice, when it goes pete tong, it would be make sure you have a witness to the actual collision( i didnt), and have a disposable camera in your glove box, to capture the actual impact positions( i didnt), prior to moving your veh, if appropriate. The third party can accept all the liability(mine did), but if they change their mind after legal advice(mine did), the point of prior admission to blame wont stand, as it can be deemed that they were in shock, and didnt fully understand what they were saying!!!!!!! The law is a bitch!!!!!!!!!

My Type R hardly anyone would insure and I ended up with a company called Tett Hamilton in Bristol. They gave me a discount and also I got my car in a mag for their advert
I will try others as I want the best and cheapest price possible. I feel my insurance now is rather high.... But hey, see my sig
