I think it was meant more for the other car lol, as in the Mini would do less to the other car in a wreck.

Popular cars (large numbers sold) get hit more for theft coverage.

Little market for oddball parts when stripped.

Oh yeah no doubt. It was horribly high. Granted don't know how other insurance companies work and discounts and such. I just asked for a quote for a 2014 FoST. Was over 900 for 6 months. Said no thanks. Granted me being a male and 21 doesn't help matters at all. No tickets either.

Today, drove it. One thing I've noticed for as long as I have owned this car, is that when the wipers are returning to their normal resting spot, they seem to make some noise when they do so. Like, when they reach that spot, they jerk a tiny bit and make a noise I can't really describe. Wipers have always worked fine, no hiccups nor sluggish/weird operation, so is it normal to the Foci?
