What is the cheapest way to insure a sports car?
I just financed a BMW Z4 Roadster and I'm looking to find full-coverage insurance for the best price possible.
“Nice choice! There are some steps you can take to make sure you get the best auto insurance rates for your new sports car.
Surprisingly, this starts at the dealership. Insurance premiums are lower for cars with high crash safety ratings.
Many modern sports cars, including the Z4, come standard with advanced driver assistance technologies. These systems are designed to mitigate or lessen the severity of injury due to an accident.
These systems include:
- Adaptive cruise control
- Frontal collision braking
- Lane keep assist
- Blind spot monitoring
- Front and rear parking sensors
When you’re looking to buy a sports car, choosing a car with these features helps lower your car insurance premiums.
Aside from the car itself, you can positively affect your insurance rates if you practice safe driving habits. While there is temptation to speed in a sports car, avoiding speeding can help prevent speeding tickets (which do affect premiums) and make sure you don’t sustain serious injury or damage to your vehicle while driving.
Many insurance companies also offer discounts, such as:
- completion of a defensive driving course
- bundling home and auto
- multiple cars on the same policy

How can I qualify for a hardship license?
How do I know if I qualify for a hardship license? I received a letter from the court stating my driver's license is suspended due to non-payment of child support. I know I need to pay, but I only just got a new job after searching for the last six months. If I can't drive to work, I will never have the money to pay my ex-wife—so what can I do?

When you move but still live in the same state, do you have to change your address with the DMV?
Why do I have to change my address if I live in the same state? I live in Texas and moved to a new home about eight months ago. I never updated my address because it didn't seem important at the time. Last night, I was at a traffic stop and the officer said he would let me go with a warning but that I needed to change my license right away. Why does it matter that I haven't updated it?
