Hi All,

Signed up to this forum as I'm in the market for a Gallardo and hoping to learn more about the car.
Doing my research and I am having trouble finding comprehensive insurance for it. This will be my first time owning a supercar (currently own a Nissan 370z). I've tried Shannons and they won't touch me as i've never owned a high-performance car for at least 2 years. Only company willing to insure is NRMA which came in at $5900
I'm 37 living in Sydney with a 100% clean driving record, no accidents, infringements or claims.
Can anyone here in Sydney recommend who are you insuring your car with and an approx annual premium for your insurance?

Thanks

Avoid Dawes
Why do you say that?, I had mine with Dawes through OAMPS and had no problems with the claim for a new screen.

Both my Gallardos were with Shannons - I'm in the ACT so I'd expect the premium to be a bit lower than Sydney but I was paying around 1% of agreed value.

Do you have a CAMS licence and/or Motorsport experience? The Lambos were on nominated driver policies, and Shannons were happy to insure any specified driver if they had some kind of official driver training or Motorsport experience - even having completed Porsche's entry stage driving 'school' was sufficient.

They put me through the works and through it again and again and again for a claim.

They did eventually pay but I had "fun and games " the whole time.

thats not fun at all.. I had a very good broker in between me and Dawes, i think that helped me a lot.

30 plus year history with my broker, looks after my whole family.

When the crunch time comes around they have no jam in their donut.

They were just there on the side line. They don't sign the cheques

Thank You all, I will check out Lumley and Dawes.
@jamesatfish, I don't have a CAMS license or any motorsport experience, but I will probably look into this though. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'd try harder with Shannons to comply.  All my cars are with them.  I only have a 05 Gallardo, but its insured with them for 200k and its 2800 a year for me.   I'm 35.  Good luck :)
