WOW...I never new insurance is so GODDAMN much. I know some guy with a 1990 MAZDA 323 (crappy car) and he pays 4000 a year!!! HOW CAN THEY DO THAT TO A PERSON. Like I would be lucky enough to even buy a car for like 3 grand and then I still have to pay for the insurance!! That is such BULL SHIT. You guys have any TIPS or ideas on how to save money? What cars are good on insurance.. i would like to only pay like 3000 AT MOST a year... I NEED UR INPUT!!! thanks

before careless driving ticket: $1440/year
after careless driving ticket: $3420/year

moral of story: do NOT get a ticket (i'm in the process of fighting it though)

Its understandable why insurance is so much, I've seen so many accidents lately but it is still a pain cause that is basically stopping me from getting a car I want heh

And yea, not cool to drive without one, someone t-boned my sisters integra and he didn't have insurance, now he's got a $5000 ticket as SeRb said and he's getting sued by my insurance company

21, $2450/yr 92' 325i.

Speeding ticket when I was 17, and that's it. I'm sure I'm gonna get nailed again soon enough. My luck has to run out.

the only reason my insurance is the lowest is because im on a corporate plan, it saves nearly half of what id regulary pay, before i paid just under $1740 (last year) and it went up to $2112
