I don't get my M5 until March 2001 so most brokers are reluctant to quote. I've resorted to cheating the various online quote engines on the web, i.e. saying I've already got one but its not really a valid test is it!!
I suspect mine will be similar to yours SteveG (5yrs +NCD, clean, Lincs/Cambs border postcode). All depends if I last till March without any points!!
It all depends on where you live and your driving history (ie. any points on license, no claims bonus etc.). Basically, expect to pay around 1500-2000 pounds, unless you are a retired sheep farmer on the Isle of Skye!
As a recomendation, don't go with the 'direct' or 'internet' companies as when it comes to making a claim, they're the worst. Instead go for a full service professional broker who will work FOR you. It may cost you a little more up front but it's worth it. I can recommend Ken Levine of Melbury Consultants on (020) 8788 9112.
Well I use Direct Line - I didn't really want to, as a previous poster has said, brokers are better when/if you have to claim. However the quote was £750 (5yncd, Sheffield) and the next nearest one from various brokers was £1300!
