Sorry for being brutal, but, if you can't afford the alarm, can you afford an MX5?

LOL, that IS brutal!

I remember the day when I bought my MX-5..... The car didn't have an alarm and there was no way on earth I could either afford a Cat 1 alarm OR the increased insurance premium if I didn't get it fitted. I was lucky and managed to get the dealer to fit one as part of the price (Thatcham 1 approved!!) and I was happy.

At the time I could afford the car and the running costs, just not the small necessity to keep Mr Insurance man happy..... guess I was lucky.

Won't be much of an alarm for that money,more like just an imobilizer? :roll: ,which is better than nothing,as thats all the insurance want,as long as its a cat 2.

My car hasn't got an alarm.

It does have two immobilisers for some reason, though. The online insurance forms you fill in sadly don't have an option for specifying more than 1 ;)

my insurance on the Nevada was due last month, I got sick of Norwich Union 'quoting me un-happy'. Decided to shop around. Guess what? I got a better price than that offered by AON.

Unlimited mileage, very low excess, fully comp. Under ?230.

Mind you, not much use to anyone under 60 :P

If anyone is interested I received a quote on my 1.8 of just ?185 from The initial online quote was ?230 but they sent me a n e-mail with improved offer the day after. This was for fully comp, with protected full no claims self and wife (age 38 and 29) with class one business use.
Despite the very good quote I am probably going to pay a bit extra and stay with AON as the service I have had from them has been excellent.
