Oh yes.....Google a stock or better still factory m156 dyno chart and see how far along the revs line you have to go to exceed 266ftlb or 360nm or torque.... it varies slightly but mostly its around 4k revs.... this one is a bit better at about 3250 revs.

360 Nm looks like 1800 RPM to me, increasing to 490 Nm by 2000 RPM, and still making 520 Nm at 6800 RPM too.
 
That's because I've posted the wrong chart... thats a 157! Wait a moment!
 
I retract my post....its equals the ALFA at much lower revs. I was basing that post on discredited info....I'll get my coat.:wallbash:

Easily done. Only a few posts ago I mistakenly thought you were referring to your Alfa when you said “157”, with 157 being the generation after the 156, but of course that’s the 159.
 
Just had a renewal quote for my C63 from Saga. £468 last year and £1083 this year with no changes or claims on the policy. 😮 Think I will be taking a look elsewhere
 
Just got a renewal through for my sons car. He is a learner and the policy is me and 2 named drivers. Last year was £888 this year £595 and on compare the market is down to £499.
 
Sat down on Saturday to sort out my Grandsons 1st ever insurance on a standard 1.0 fiesta.The highest one was £6975 we finally got it fully comp with his mum and dad as named drivers for Just under £1900. No Black Box. Bloody Hell...Everyone steer clear of Ascot for a While LOL

7 Gs to insure a 1 litre Fiesta :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
 
My Sister's daughter has just passed her test and for the same fiesta 1L is £4400 I ran a quote on the F-type for a giggle and there was £20 difference I cant see how they afford it without the help of the grandparents in her case (no one ever paid my insurance or bought me a car)

Almost certainly because there are many recently-passed Fiesta drivers who have claimed, whereas there are probably zero recently-passed F-Type drivers who claimed, and so completely different risk profiles for the insurer.

My daughter’s boyfriend found a quote for an SLK350 which was less than the renewal on his (then) 18 year Old Ford Fiesta, and I’m sure it’s for the same reason. I bet an SLK 55 would be barely any more but he wouldn’t run a quote!
 
All the quotes we're within £500 of each other
Corsa
Mokka ,cheapest at £3600
Fiesta
F type
Mini
 
Just had an email from confused.com with their latest quotes. They're all about £800-£900. At £446 it looks like I'll be staying with Aviva for another year.
 
Paid £366 last year, got renewal quote of £650 this year.

Went on price comparison site and cheapest quote was £355. Rang up my current insurance and they said best they could do was £605. Then they were magically able to drop it to £360 once I notified them of the comparison offers...

I hate having to play this game ever year although happy to get no increase like so many others.

This sort of nonsense makes me so angry, I could throw the phone down.....:mad::D
 
Just got my quote for the Mondeo, 16 years protected NCB, they've offered me a discounted price, online only, of £1358!

Crikey, what was it last year? But assume that’s for “professional” insurance?
