Found 20th Jan 2014
No idea if that's a good price for the car or not, but I've been looking for a way of getting cheap insurance for new drivers and came across this.

"Yes, we know it's hard to believe! Evans Halshaw Citroen are offering free insurance for anybody 19 years old and up, on their fantastic C1 Connexion!"

Overpriced, I recall couple of days ago Peugeot 107 for £5999 posted.

Not a great deal, given the base car is worth under £6k...

The way I see it is that it'd cost me £2,500.16 to insure it. So I'd be paying £150+ pm for the car then another £220+ pm insurance. Whereas with the deal (although the car is over-priced) I'd only be paying £179.01 for the first year whilst building NCD to drop the premium for the following year.

You'd still be better off with buying it for £6k...

Just adding the two prices together, yes. But as a student I can't whip out £6k. Much rather lower monthly payments.

Why buy new? And why go on your own insurance? Makes no logical or financial sense...

Because I live away from home and can't go second driver without fronting. I've added a parent to the quote which reduces it. Even buying second hand and paying monthly would work out more than this.

if his parent is added as the main driver but isn't they could land in court, dummy - or at least an insurer wont pay out if you have an accident

Having said that I think its criminal what insurers charge for kids. Sure, restrict the type of car but keep premiums reasonable, max £500, for small cars like this one

It's only fronting if you are miles and miles apart...

Which I do, 93.2 miles to be exact. And fronting is just when someone else is declared as the first driver, doesn't matter how far you live from them. Just easier to try and get away with if you live close...

The C1 connexion model in question is not a base model but was the top of the range model prior to Citroen renaming all the C1 range!

Evans Halshaw service is appalling, they will try to sell you all sorts of unnecessary add-ons, and it is a Citroen. Shop around for insurance and you will get it for around £1000 and shop around for a decent car and dealer.

My daughter bought a107 from Evans Halshaw and I just told them no extras and it wasn't a problem. With 12 months driving as a named driver on another car the insurance was £700 full comp.Oh she was 18 as well.

Get a black box fitted and don't drive like a knob: ingenie
