I suppose the premium reflects the 'market value pay-out' in the event of a write-off. In view of the higher premiums that the insurers invariably charge Citroen owners, wouldn't it be an opportunity for Citroen UK to run their own insurance scheme?

Just an update
I finally went for Elephant.co.uk who charged £575.40 for 12 months fully comp cover. If I had decided on a 10 month fully comp cover (which would get me 1 years NCB in 10 months) it would have cost me £525.
As I'm going back to being a lowly skint student next year, I thought it would be best if I had 12 months instead of 10 ! One of the downsides about going for this quote menas that my excess premium is now £400 !
One final thought - Since Top Gear (TV Show on BBC) made a massive case against the price of petrol recently with varying success, maybe they shoudl aim their guns at the insurance companies next?!
Thanxs for everyone's contribution to this post
