i think i may get one of these at some point, as diesels are alot cheaper to insure for young drivers, and i wanted a nice 3dr red escort. maybe killing 2 birds with one stone lol. is it possible to put a petrol lump into a diesel? as in long run i might do that, obviously the engine, ecu, fuel tank, possibly loom need to be swapped as well as mounts id assume, but is it " realistically possible"

i just wondered, because if i got a nice 3dr derv, i was happy with, i can pick up a 1.6/ 1.8 lump for £100 easy, just thought if its possible, why not just drop one in the shell i already have and am happy with? would probably be quicker than taking all parts off, and swapping them over ;)

i had a quote on my old 1.8td escort, put it that i was 17, with a full liscence, mum as the main driver, me as a named, and it came back £1500 3rd party only :)

 

a 1.2 corsa would be £1400, so for the £100 difference, id rather have the escort tbh :)

Mam as main driver? tut tut tut AND 3rd party only...

 

Was the 1.2 corsa under same circumstances (i.e. mam as main?)

 

You should really go on your own and get your own NCB's, i'm doing it now and yes I am (or was) paying a lot, i'm due my 1st renewal in april and already it's came down by £700! that is only with 1 NCB so it's really worth it mate.

b*stard :P £1500 is cheap for me :/

 

 

LOL, makes me wonder where insurers work there quote out......

 

I have recently got my license back after a ban, I am only paying £2000 for a 5.4 Supercharged import....

 

Makes no sense.. I would rather pay the £500 more & have comfort lol.
