MKII Spyder in Blanchardstown today 11 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 58
So I was walking towards the Blanchardstown mall today and all I heard was this louder than usual car coming up and when I looked it was Rob's Spyder. I heard the Turbo boosting and I was surprised...didn't know he had it done. Since it was a turbo I have to say he was driving at the rate of speed any Turbo should be driven.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

It was around 6pm. Would be nice to have a drink if I knew you were coming near the location where I live. Let me know next time.

ah I thought you were still in Cork.. welcome to Dublin

I was over at McQuillans picking up a (heavy as *&^*^) bench vice so I can push in my suspension bushings finally.

When are you getting an MR2?

I will get one when insurance companies let me. It's not easy to insure one when you're under 25.

Call Campion sparrow brokers, they will get you a policy. At least get a Micra or something so you can get your no claims bonus building up

That is actually my plan. But luckily again I live walking distance to my new company and I was checking online quotes for a 1 liter car and it's 1500 a year and if I apply for that when I am 25 I would pay "only" 900 euros per year. It's a big difference...

If you call axa or campion sparrow you might get a better quote than just checking online. Another thing to consider is sometimes the brokers have group insurance deals that you can avail of. For instance once I was able to insure my MR2 at a cheaper rate because I was an IT engineer. I did not have to join a society etc etc, but it was just a 'special deal' that the broker happened to have access to in that particular year.

I'm only 5 mins drive (no traffic) from the Blanchardstown Centre.

Hadn't realised either you had moved up from Cork.

My insurance stayed at around 700-750 for a goo few years. This year I got a renewal for only 397 ! That was through 123.ie, with RSA underwriting the policy.

But, as Quandry said - don't assume all the best quotes are online

P.S. when I first saw the thread, it was today and I saw the "MkII Spyder in Blanch". So, as I wasn't driving it "today", I was thinking "oh no - Ireland's second Spyder and he has to go and live near to me "

Nice, do you guys ever go to a restaurant nearby or only in the city center? I moved from Cork, bc I got a proper offer here in Dublin so here I am.
Wow paying 397 a year for a turbo MR2 lol...that's the best I've heard.
I guess I have to call companies then, I just moved to Dublin but I think I will be staying for a bit so I'm seriously thinking about getting something and then a MR2 again of course. Message me if you go for a drink nearby. Take care guys!
