Hey guys,

I'm a soon-to-be owner of an elise, and I'm just wondering roughly what you guys are paying for insurance, and who covers you?

I'm in Vancouver BC :clap:

Hello x-macbeth, I'm up in Prince George so my base insurance is a little cheaper then what yours will be but the rest should be the same.
base - $895
collision / $300 deductible -$1464
comprehensive / $300 -deductible - $1485
replacement /collision - $232
replacement / comprehensive - $123
roadstar - $42
? fees - $$$
Total $4465 / year
I have 20+ years safe driving so I get the full 43% discount
My total is $2257 / year
Insurance is high but not much more then my other cars and trucks, but cost of ownership is cheep when you add in tires and gas and repairs( compared to similar priced sports cars )

Wow, I never realized just how good I have it being on the island until now.

On my Elise I was paying $2300/yr as well and I only have a 15% discount!

My Lotus and Shelby GT Mustang are both insured as collector cars with limited annual mileage (about 4k each car per year) and I pay about 85.00 per month for both. When they are not your daily drivers and you have a couple to spread around the annual 8k miles of fun, the drive time per year is about right for me and I save some cash!
