Default Any ideas what the difference in insurance would be between an sti and a legacy gt?

I know its sorta a dumb question cause it depends on your insurance and record etc. but there has to be some sort of percentage or something.

I would think that an LGT would be cheaper to insure. They look at accident rates and other data pertaining to the car to determine the rate. LGTs are probably involved in fewer accidents just based on the types of people who buy LGTs and STis.

Insurance agents always b.s. me though
no matter how many times i'm like... "So that has all the fees included right?"
it ends up being more.

Not to mention i'm not an active motorist right now.

LGT is much cheaper, carries a lower ISO.

Yep, LGT is significantly cheaper for me as well although I've only done quotes for an STI.

Questions we cannot answer on NASIOC

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following are questions we cannot answer on NASIOC and the reasons why:

Car insurance questions of any type. Car insurance is metered via the state, city, car year, car model, car trim level, car modifications, driving record, amount of drivers, drivers' age, drivers' marital status, car use, driving record of users, and about 99 other things. All of these components are crunched by the 10,000 different auto insurers to give you 10,000 different quotes. If you have a question, please contact your insurance company or seek quotes. My insurance rates have zero to do with what you will pay and wont be in the same neighborhood, ballpark, or galaxy as yours.

Want a quote that means a crap? Visit one of these online calculators:

www.statefarm.com

I actually sold an 05' LGT to get an 06' STI. My insurance went up 130 dollars per month (I'm 23 w/ clean record).

So yeah... BIG difference.

and as a contrast, i sold an 05 baja turbo to buy an 06 sti and my insurance practically remained the same... a few dollars more a month.

the point is, there are too many variables and everyone's quote will differ. if your insurance agent fudges the numbers and bs'es you, ask for a bottom line price or find another agent because they have to give you accurate info by law.

I just used my insurance carrier's online policy change calculator and with the same coverage as I currently have, if I went from my STi to a LegGTLtd. my insurance would increase $22 a month.

I wonder what mine will do when I go from a Neon ('98), to a Mazda3 ('05)...
Maybe I should post the question...
