Wtf?

A Mk1 820i is in the same insurance group as a Tickford Turbo?

And that, higher than a 216 GTi?

What is going on?

To be honest, I think that the insurance groups are largely irrelevant - it's the premium that counts.

Based a lot more on your risk and where you live than purely insurance groupings IMO

Looking at the other groups, auto vs manual seems to make no difference.

As I understand they've changed the groupings recently?

Now 1-50 rather than 1-20 AFAIK.

Well, I'm fine for where I live, A classed area.

Chris - I'd be surprised - looking at Hypercars, they're all listed as being IG20.

Could someone make this 'sticky' please its a really useful thing to know.

I think that as time went on, Rover fitted better security systems which explains why a lot of R17 versions are 1 group lower than their XX counterparts.

Can't quote anywhere but I've heard it mentioned a few times.

I'll try and investigate.
