Re: Are Grande Puntos becoming the new Puntos?

Of Course they will, like any car getting older and the value starts to drop, they all fall into the bracket of the young driver car

That would explain it then, thought you was having a dig at people for having their parents on their policy's like it was uncool.

Re: Are Grande Puntos becoming the new Puntos?

Labels get thrown around and they stick. Because of the select few that drive around like knobs in modified cars it ruins it for everyone else.

Im proud of my car, i keep it in the best condition i can and i drive sensibly, but that doesnt stop some people thinking im "chavvy".

Yea i may be stcking to the speed limit instead of doubling it. Yea i may be listening to guns n roses n not happy hardcore. Yea i may be stopping to let old ladies cross the road instead of ploughing my car into the nearest immovable obstacle..... But just because ive taken the badges off, or colour coded a few bits that automatically makes me a chav in some peoples eyes.

well, who really gives a s***!

Still can have your mother on the policy to lower! Are there laws about insuring a person to drive a car even if they will not drive it?

I have my mum on my policy, she would probably drive it from the station car park home once or twice a year at the maximum, maybe even not drive it at all.
