Hi folks

My partner and I just moved to the UK from the US and have bought out first vehicle.

Our AMG43 18 has a value of £49k. Best quote we could get was £3800 p.a for comprehensive with a £650 excess via Mercedes Insurance

What does everyone else pay? Seems super high

WOW that's seems horrendous to me

Actual value of the car is of less importance to insurance companies than Make & model, performance and specification as they tend to consider the value in groups if that makes sense, e.g. over £20k, over £30k etc. and they look closely at cost of replacement parts and accident history of those types of vehicle.

Even more important are your own statistics - estimated annual mileage, driving history, your age, and location, you'll pay a premium for living in a city, some more than others and presumably you haven't been offered any no claims bonus.

Mine isn't an AMG just a humble 250d AMG-line but the list value of the car was still over £47k when it was registered Sept 30th 2017. My wife and I are both in our 60s, live in a rural village in Northumberland and get 70% no claims discount. My policy is a multicar type for my GLC and My wifes' 2016 Mini Cooper Clubman ( £25k when we bought it new) and I renewed the insurance just last month at a total cost after various discounts of £396.02 FOR BOTH CARS - That's approx £228 for the GLC and £168 for the Mini.

Fully comprehensive and courtesy car, based on £6000 miles each p.a with excess on the GLC at £400 ( no option ) and the Mini at £150. Insurance is direct with Aviva so a major insurance company.

Unfortunately you won't get near that if you're 25 years of age living in London and driving 25000 miles pa

EDIT:
I think from memory the NC discount is 70%, would have to check but it is maximum, over 15 years no claims.

Try compare the market and confused.com websites, sure they will better that quote by a LOT of money, I pay £215 fully comp protected no claims for my 43, full no claims (over 15 years) living in Dorset and with my wife on the policy.

Only a 220d but around £400 full comp, full no claims discount, 12k a year with business cover.

PHILAMG who are you insured with, looking around at the moment

I am insured with privilege, price through compare the market. Can't get my head around how insurance works as I was paying £10 a year more for a 190bhp discovery sport. I am sure that privilege will increase the price and I will change to another company by using the comparison websites.
