    The Type R is driven by lots of young males, so probably has a much higher claims rate than does the C8, which is mostly driven by old farts. Yes, I'm looking in the mirror. The car's claims record matters as much as the driver's.

      good point. So funny you mention "young males". Can't count the number of times we got out of the car and someone would say "I was expecting a kid to crawl out of that car!". A simply awesome track weapon.

        If I knew, I would write a book with the 700 factors. But when I added my C8 to my policy last month, Erie lowered my auto premiums by 49% with a program they have called rate lock. I am guessing some of the factors are assets, liabilities, income, expenses, credit rating, professional occupation (I am a CPA with a law degree so the CPA part may work in my favor but I am not sure how the lawyer part fits in--haha). Insurance companies these days are pulling from many pieces of information to analyze their customers. I too am not sure how they get 700 but that is what my agent mentioned to me.

        700 is an impressive number! I Googled it and found 25 different factors so I'm curious what sort of other information your insurer collects on you?

          A great car if you could get past the Boy Racer look.

            The algorithms are so complicated even the agents don't understand them. When I got a quote to replace my C7 with a C8, no other changes (deductibles the same, annual mileage the same, drivers the same, etc), the rates on my other two cars changed. Some coverages went up, some went down. When I asked why, the only explanation was "that's how the formula works." After years of patching and modifying code, I'm not sure the insurance companies even understand their algorithms any more.

              How come nobody is mentioning their coverage? 100/300 is nothing these days. The $100K won't even cover what I now have into my C8. Most policies will only cover a Maximum of $300,000 Let's just say if an accident is found to be your fault and you only have 100/300 insurance and you hit a mini van with kids in it. and they all get hospitalized - your coverage will be used up and then you get sued and could loose your home or bank accounts, etc. The question you have to ask your insurance company is - What the maximum they will pay out in case of an extreme injury collision? Your policy should at least cover all of your assets. I would bet many are NOT covered for what they are worth. People are awarded millions these days who are not at fault and crawl away from an accident with life changing injuries. All I can say is I had a neighbor who injured a family and was his fault and he was sued and lost his home and vehicles, bank accounts, etc. And a big percentage of his wages will be taken for the rest of his life.

                Looks like NCM insurance only covers up to 6k miles per year. While I average about 5k/yr on my daily driver I expect to drive the C8 more in at least the first year.

                Can you pay a premium for extra miles?

                  I agree. I suspect most, if not all, of those here on the forum should have at least a $1,000,000 umbrella policy. Especially if there are any teenage drivers at home.

                    A couple years ago I took a call from a financial planner only because he was a fraternity brother. He went through a scenario that seemed quite reasonable where a client had a college aged child who hit someone in a cross walk. The client had reasonable insurance and a million dollar umbrella but unfortunately ended up still owing $700K beyond his insurance. Needless to say I upped my umbrella from $1million to $5million for not too much more money..
