Unhappy Just Got Quoted on STi insurance

Hey I just got quoted $1112 for a 6 month premium on an 04' sti. I called the insurance company and gave them a vin from one off ebay. This is an outrageous amount and I once was told that a STi is cheaper than a wrx for insurance because it insures as a luxury car. I got quoted for $1025 for an 04' wrx, again with a vin off ebay.
I have nationwide insurance and my 00' jeep and 00' chrysler van are around $500. I did the same coverage as these cars.
I know these things are sporty but DAMM!!

Does any one have any info that can help or any one wanna share what they pay??

When I called to ask what it would cost me to insure an STi it was only ~ $100 more a year then the WRX.

It's really hard to compare insurance rates because there are a TON of variables but I pay close to what you listed above.

The STi is a 300hp sports sedan which has expensive body parts and can get the owner in a lot of trouble when they got a little fast. It's not a cheap car to insure.

If you can get Wawanesa do it, i am paying like $90 bucks a month and I am 23, but my car is considered a pleasure vehicle. You have to have a good driving record, and i do not know what states they cover. But they are the cheapest.

Ha...that is such a stupid list. Of course those are the most expensive to insure...they're the most expensive period.

What are there, maybe a couple thousand of those cars total in the US?

I pay $240 a month which is about $1400 or so every six months. I would welcome $1100. USAA told me the car is listed as a sports car thats why it is so much. I had a wreak about 4 years ago. I have only been paying USAA back for it for almost 3 years they told me it would drop alot in Nov. when my policy renews and the wreak is all the way off.
