Most 260s are Group F, which is £190
per year but watch out if you get one of the 2006 registered cards SMC
in Slough have got up
for sale as you could be in Group G at £210 per year.
This of course varies but here are some providers with quotes mostly for middle-aged blokes like me! Watch out as some insist on a having a tracker fitted (often annual fee let alone fitting negates any savings!) whereas most want a Thatcham Cat 1 Alarm system.
One thing to remember; modding your car will
make insurance much more of a headache! Since I have modded my
cars (Elise and ZT260) Adrian Flux have been the way to go as you can
see from the quotes I got this year.

But the 260 needs an oil change every 5000 miles costing £60-90

will cost you nearly £2,000 per year!
