It's your post code, my insurance doubled when I moved here.
Yeah you're right. It affects insurance badly, just had a look and did a quote for a supposed "A" rated postcode and the quote is just over £600 cheaper. I'm sad.:cry:
Edit: And only a £95 excess, man I wish I lived in Tadcaster :laughing:

My insurance in Doncaster for the Trophy is £300, here it's £650.

Think mines an A rated postcode.
Only live 10 minutes from Tadcaster ;)

Yeah, sorry I meant I'm 10 mins from Tadcaster when home. I'm at uni in Huddersfield and live in accommodation there too.
I have both addresses down on my insurance policy as i'm 50/50 in both places, months wise.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh.
What'chu doing?

I graduate this year so can't race you sorry m8.
Insurance isn't too great around here to be honest as it's Huddersfield. But my home address being on too brings it right down.

Don't stay at storthes first year. It's worth paying the extra for accommodation in town IMHO. Sawmill, castings, or some new ones are also being built. Storthes hall is a shithole but it does have a good community vibe. But it's a 20 minute bus to uni everyday.

Doing a foundation year in Engineering then moving onto a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering (i think), not 100% on that.

Shame I cant lose to you in a race and I didnt think insurance would be brilliant round there but ive never checked.

Also yeah Ive done some research on accomodation and I didnt like the 2 that are approved by Huddersfield, especially Storthes Hall because its so far away.

Think im gonna pick either Aspley house or little aspley house and theyre both just across the road from the Engineering building and right in the centre. Again im not 100% on that but its my best bet.

I'd choose Sawmill or Castings over aspley IMO. They're all close to the engineering building, but you're not always in there anyway/

Ive not looked at those yet so will have a look tonight. As long as theyre generally close to the uni then thats fine by me.

Also @Louis' couple quick questions: 44 weeks or 51? And stay in halls for 2nd year or not?

My first year accommodation was 44 week at Sawmill. Don't expect huge rooms, but you'll be in the kitchen most of the time anyway. En suite is worth it alone although it's slightly more expensive. It's upto you really though whether 44 or 52 as obviously 52 is more expensive but you have somewhere to go over summer if you want to get away from your parents. I know at Sawmill lots of chinese/foreign students moved in for summer, and there were maggots crawling from kitchen to rooms. Glad I didn't stay.

I moved into private accomodation 2nd year as its considerably cheaper, you dont have to pay for parking etc. Any questions just pm me or something mate.

Definitley going for en suite and Ive seen how small the rooms are but Im used to small rooms anyways so its no bother.

Main thing im still unsure of is 44 weeks or full year but ive got some time to decide yet. If anything else pops up i'll pm you.

Could do now days are getting longer. Just depends on other peoples availability as I'll be going with the majority.
Friday late afternoon to evening any good?

Away Easter weekend sadly! Gutted as I love the big breakfast meet - missed it last year too, seem to only ever be able to make the Autumn one!

Didn't know anything was on, got a linky? Not sure if we've plan's this Easter but I'm iff work the week after bank holiday so hopefully I can sneak off at least 1 day.
Pistonheads, sorry, but a few CS members always turn up. Its a busy meet and actually Im tempted to not go due to the number of people that turn up now. But I am up in Yorkshire anyway and the drive alone will be worth it.

Its at the malton Porsche garage (which is also near the BMW garage). Park up (if you can, you'll need to turn up v early) grab a bacon sandwich and have a mooch around.
