    Yup, when I called for a quote on them the STi was about $20 more a month than the Evo.

    Not really sure why that is, except that there are almost no Mitsubishis (of any kind), in my area, so they statistically show a lesser accident rate than the Impreza/STi.

    BTW, there's only 1 STi that I know of in the area, and I have the only Evo as far as I know. So I figure the insurance company has to be looking at the whole model range, Lancer or Impreza. And there's only three or four base model Lancers, the majority of them driven by older folks, while there are quite a few Imprezas.

    This has turned into a standard "how much are you paying" discussion, so I've merged it with the existing Insurance thread.

    Guys I'd seriously reconsider where all that money goes. It's your money, do what you want with it, but if you're paying $200 or even more per month to just insure a car, maybe it'd be a better idea to get another car that costs less to own. There's no point in just giving insurance companies money. It's a Subaru, they'll make more, just wait.

    Thank you. I was beginning to think that I was the only one shocked at some of these premiums.

    As far as the Evo vs. STi arguement goes, Mitsubishi's are generally more expensive to insure for some reason or another. You also have to keep in mind that 'Cost of Repair' is a very important statistic to insurance companies, and your average Subaru owner will nickel and dime an insurance company while settling an accident (i.e. you cant buy me just one new tire because all four have to have the same tread wear).

    Also, from what I've gathered, all Impreza's are lumped together for the purpose of generating the 'score' that insurance companies use to determine rates. Your rate is then modified by which model Impreza you have. Which would explain why my insurance is higher on a NON-TURBO Impreza RS than it would be on a LGT; your average Impreza driver is a higher risk to insure than your average Legacy driver.

    Another interesting thing I came across while I was shopping rates was that the wagons effect your rates just as much as the turbos, but in the opposite direction. An Allstate agent told me that my 2.5RS Sedan scored a 20 on their system (whatever taht means), while a 2.5RS Wagon was a 16, and a WRX Sedan was a 24. I thought that was interesting.

    I pay $160/mo for my insurance, but I have a whopper of a speeding ticket (96 in a 70) so I really can't swap companies. I'll just have to swallow it until next April, when my speeding ticket falls off, I turn 25, and I'll get my 3year discount. I'm expecting to see my rates cut in half.

    Guys get to bend over until they are 25, its as simple as that. Unless you can load up on the discounts, i.e. married, good student, multi-car, length of policy, good driver, etc.

    Some of my customers who have bought Evo's have found that, while it isn't the best company in the world, Esurance is hella cheap. Like....$130/mo for 18yr olds. Check it out.

    Progressive is who I carry. From what I can tell, they are a decent company with competitive rates.
