Hey Quack you need to use the Speed limiter option in the car. Set it to 80 km/h and you'll be good.

E.P.

Also thought that my wife was getting the best deal through Meloche's group rates for Dental Hygienist. WRONG.....recently checked with ING...they and another cpmparison quote provided by them beat my wife's rate by $400.
Switching to ING this year.

I'm glad it worked out for you. Since my wife works at TD, we get staff rate. I wonder if rates differ from one group policy to another at the same insurer.

Oh my friggin wow!!!! people pay way too much insurance! if you are young and drive a bimmer - then I guess you will pay huge premiums. I had several cars until I got my 330xi at 33yrs old. that way i donlt mind paying the the insurance....

heres me and my wifes stats;-

wife's:-
2001 530i, age 37, 12yrs experience
full comprehensive with 2million liability, AXA insurance
no points/convictions
$1000 per year

me:
2002 330xi, 17yrs driving experience
full comprehensive with 2million liability, AXA insurance
2 points nearly 3 years ago - forgot to signal with crossing intersection!!!
$1125 per year

wife just got a qoute for a 2004 4.4l X5... $845 per year... wow! much cheaper than the 2001 530i ...
