    The big thing that I've noticed in the States is there doesn't appear to be the same sort of Insurance Groups system. What is an STI - 20? If there are, they're not well publicised. Insurance is definitely a TON cheaper over here, though. Granted, I'm a good bit older (27) and have 4 years under my belt (previous UK experience doesn't count) and I pay just shy of $900 for the year with full coverage ('08 WRX).

    Another HUGE difference is the coverage options over here - it's not just 3rd party, 3rd party fire/theft or fully comp. You can adjust just about every coverage here - it's nuts! Oh, and anyone can drive you're car....which is great...you're basically insuring the car! In the UK, only people named on the policy can drive....

    The other thing I would point out is that while £5,000 is actually $10,000 with the exchange rate, it's actually more like $5,000 as far as equivalent pricing. I've found that most things are the same price but just change the symbol! Eg. An iPod Nano is $150 here and £150 back home....crackin' value if you're bring £'s over!

    Total cost for me at age 21 for an 04 STI per month....

    Gas expense at 4.00/gal * 4 (fill up once a week) = $254
    Car payment $289 per month ( 15,000 loan on 60 months)
    Insurance $68 per month (on parents insurance FTW)
    Total...$611


    Got it all calculated out before i even have a car
    Tyler - Aspen White 04' STI
    Blobeye Syndicate #40
    Stage 2 - 312HP ~ 339 lb ft. torque
    Live Gamertag - TMANN05
    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.
