    lol, nice car. insurance is a killer, i pay £1600 a year for third party fire and theft. and thats for a 1.0 litre engine! cause ive already had a claim with the Rav-4. also im 18 which means im a liability according to insurers.

    No, I've only had it about 2 months so I'm a bit slow on the uptake, although I may well join now as the car supermarket I bought it from messed me around something chronic.

    Don't you hate that liability? I'm 16 and I don't have a car yet for that reason. Just because some past retards crashed and killed themselves we all have to suffer. Dumb kids, doing dumb things can ruin a lot. I'm actually glad those drunk idiots died, so they don't reproduce and make more messed up kids. This is prevalent to many things. Including fireworks being banned because some idiot blew his hand off with a M-80. Or how video games being banned because some idiots shot up their school and the ignorant media blames it the games! I hate society and the government...
