Re: Car insurance

I've only found one company that will insure my car here - due to "import"
Was a bit worried about how much it would go up next year, given that I'm stick with them - it dropped by $12 8-)

That’s pretty cool of Dan to do that, he has my utmost respect for making that leap!
You're fairly regular on here aren't you? He's been doing it for a good 5 years or so I think!
Compared to @Ascender Dan is a newbie ;)
