    I just got a quote from my insurance guy and he said 6months of coverage on a 2003 cobra would be 6k for only a half of a year. Im 19 years old and have 1 ticket and never been in a wreck, dose that sound high to u? I was wondering if any one as young as me has any sort of cobra and how much dose it cost you yearly, thanks

    :jaw: Man, thats ridiculous. When I was 19, my cobra was 2 years old and my insurance wasn't half that. No wrecks or tickets though...

    I am 23, single, male and my cobra is like 1500-1600 every 6 months with pretty good levels of coverage. Adding it dropped my L insurance to like 76 a month. So I figure it nearly evened out.

    I was 4200 a year added onto my parents plan. I was also covered on their cars, 02 bmw 325i and 02 chevy trailblazer. this was with full coverage on a 99 cobra coupe, I was the main driver on my car. I was 17-18 at the time with a clean record.

    i'm 20 and i just have an 03 GT and i still pay 313 a month. i'm on a plan with my dad (745Li) and my younger brother (M-Coupe, 325i). I have no tickets on my record and no accidents. I can't imagine how I would afford insurance on a Cobra until I am older.

    I am 18 and pay $800 a yr.......If you still live with your father and he has good credit, put the car under his name. Just give him the money when you have to pay.

    I'm 18 and own a 97 cobra. You all are turning around and bending over for insurance.....you're getting R A P E D ! ! ! ! I'm with state farm and pay $858 ($143 a month). Thats with full coverage all with deductibles of 500. All you have to do is get the good student discount and then go through this "Steer Clear" program. It doesn't cost anything except a minute every now and then to record driving times by yourself. F U C K that $1000 a month ****AT!!!!

    Insurance on an '03 is probably alot more expensive than our '96 and '99s. '03s are 30+ thousand dollar cars...
