    transferring rego 1ld->nsw for 205mi16 and insurance

    Hi all,

    I'm thinking about seriously looking at gilly's 205mi16 but there are a few problems. firstly, its registered in QLd, so i need to transfer it to NSW. What issues would i face since the car has a diff motor

    Also what about insurance? who will insure someone under 25(well 25 in jul) with this type of car?

    thanks,

    Shannons Insurance ...

    I've been with them for over 12 years. They specialise in classic & modified cars and won't penalise you because of the engine in Gilly's car. Call them.

    Yes, go with Shannon's. My 205 is insured with them under one of their modified vehicle policies. I presume that you would fall into the same policy group. The only difference is that my insurance is cheaper because it it insured for only 8000km per year.

    As for the transfer of rego, you will have to get a blue slip to register it in NSW. In order to get a blue slip you would have to have the car engineered, or a blue mod plate which is what they have in Qld. So if it doesn't have either of those then you have to go through a bit of stuffing around to get it changed over. But, atleast you will know its legal then.

    Hi Guys,

    all I can say is if your under 25 and want to drive a car modified to that extent, well, I hope your rich tongue

    Seriously, if your under 25 more than likely you'll find a lot of insurance companies won't want anything to do with you. If you have had previous accidents ... Your doubly buggered. I don't want to put you off, but ask yourself, would you cover someone young, driving a highly modified car (Yeah, not a hope in hell).

    Shannons will cover it $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Your only option may be to cover it as very limited use (less than 4000km's a year). Either that or think $2500 ++++ a year for insurance. Find out if you can get coverage for the car at reasonable cost before you even look at it. If you can do multi-car through Shannons, you'll even be better off. I've found I can add extra cars to my Shannons multi-car policy extremely reasonably.

    You really need to prove yourself a motoring enthusiest, not a petrol head. eg. I listed about 10cars that I own there, the women on the other end of the phone got VERY excited. Apparantly I'm there ideal customer, and they went our of there way to try & do deals for me.

    If I've just done someone out of a sale ... Woops, sorry wink ...

    If it's already got the blue mod plate & has been registered in Queensland it should be no bother.
    A previous rego number may help.
    Insurance for under 25 is no real big problem; my son just recently insured a Nissan GT-R and he was under 25 (and then promptly bent it) mallet mallet but if you can afford it, monthly premium payments are available.
    I think his was $2500 premium plus $3500 excess.
    This was done through "Young & Cool."
    I'll let you know how they perform claimwise in the next couple of weeks.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Well i am 25 soon, hoping shannons would see this.

    I guess i will wait and see what shannons reply

    Alan,

    sh!+, poeple pay THAT MUCH for insurance eek! eek! eek! Most cars I own cost considerably less than one years insurance premium. Then if you bend it eek! eek! eek!

    Gee's I'm glad I'm over 25 now. It's costing $48 a month to insure the CX GTi Turbo & '63 ID19 through Shanons.

    If you want to know why, you should see this ricecooker after a very light tap; not much worse than if you were parked & backed into a bit hard & looking down the barrel at around $18,000 in parts alone & possibly written off. The car would be still driveable only for splitting the intercooler.

    Try Just Cars Insurance (www.justcarinsurance.com.au) - ex-housemate, under 25, managed to insure his Honda S2000 with them at a very reasonable price (can't remember off the top of my head, but it was cheaper than what he was paying for his previous car, a Calibra, through RACV) when nobody else would even touch it.

    Could be worth a try?

    I got a Just Cars quote when I was thinking of buying the 504 13BT and I'm 19 eek! .

    Very surprisingly cheap (relatively speaking.) They said they'd insure any legal mod if it was declared.

    The catches? The only driver covered is you (if anyone else is driving the car, it's not their problem) and I think the premiums soar if you have things like prior speeding tickets, or prior claims.
