Hi, drop an email over to matt.crane@lifesure.co.uk
He's a mate of mine and might be able to help you out on a Scooby. To be honest I think you're dreaming if you want an STI for that price.

No worries, drop Matt an email and ask him to run quotes through on some different models. Also consider getting an older model as you will get an Age of Vehicle discount too (does it show that I'm a broker ?)
You might find that Groupama come up trumps, they are pulling out of the general market and specialising in performance cars this years with really good rates. They slashed my premium in half from Adrian Flux.

Re: im new but have not got a subaru yet please help!

An STI would be more expensive because it is more powerful than a WRX. Although they are both a group 18 to 20, depending on which rating guide you use. I had an STI a couple of years ago and I have not got a imported, modified WRX and I've saved a fortune on insurance.
You're age, postcode, vehicle type, claims history, convictions will all be unique to you so you can't compare your insurance cost to anyone else.
Wait for Matt to contact you and hope you can get a Scooby. Would you consider a non-turbo if it's got the looks ?

The problem here is still his age. Might still be worth looking at the non turbo option.

Wonder how much he's paying. Got to be worth a try if he's getting the cover.

Never heard of that one but might give 'em a call next time round. Young chaps gone quiet but hope he gets something sorted.
