Insurance MR2 11 Months, 1 Week ago Karma: 1
I have a 1992 mr2. I am 34, male. Who can I get insurance from in Ireland? Can I get classic insurance?

First Ireland have a classic policy for cars over 25 years old, I use it for my MR2. The only thing is that it's limited mileage and you can't use your car for everyday use (commuting to work etc). If that works for you then give them a call: www.firstireland.ie/

and by the way welcome to MR2.ie

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

I've been with Caarol Nash since I was 23 on the MR2, seem to be the cheapest by far.

Re: Insurance MR2 11 Months, 1 Week ago Karma: 27
mine is a 1993 jap import and I have it insured with Autoline on a classic policy
once you have your own insurance on another car (daily driver) and the mr2 is over 20 years old ... that's all that you show need

Doesn't seem to be an issue - mine is an import too. If they don't ask theirs no need to mention. I think overall they're a bit more lenient on limited mileage policy's as they're much lower risk.

Re: Insurance MR2 11 Months ago Karma: 3
How's it going lads I've got a quote on first ireland but the only requirement are I'm a member of a vintage club. What would the mr2 fall under if this club is not classified as a vintage club.

Any help. As I've received a quote to bring out and could have it at the terenure show

I've sent you a PM with your unique membership number.

If anyone else needs their unique membership number to apply for classic insurance let me know.

cheers,

This is not directed towards you Steve, but I am so pissed off with these insurance companies. ALL MR2 SW20's were manufactured in Japan in the same building. What the hell makes a European spec so different to an import. Maybe some undercoating and a slight difference in styling. It makes my blood boil

To many Toyotas lasting the test of time for the insurers to be happy about it
