Well for 3rd party and only that for the EF i6 it cost me $201 a year.

For 3rd party, fire and theift its $401 a year.

So im pretty happy with that.

But then i got other crap like ill have to pay the first $1500 and all that which sucks.

Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

I'dlove to have my wagon converted to an 8, but I just don't see it being a realistic option to go. For the same price could get a very decent JMM or IPS (or ITS or what ever) rebuild, or a snort turbo kit (yes I'm sure there's hidden costs), all of which would probably go harder...

Considering how little an EF Gli is worth these days, why not?


Thats right. I think it would cost me almost 1.5K in fukll comp for my car a year and seeing as i only payed $1800 for the thing i thought that after a year i could buy another.

You're better off saving the money for you AU2,3 or BA. Its just not worth the hassle for such a short time.
