    I am considering remapping my fiesta zetec s tdci to get massive speed improvements and slightly better economy. Im 18 and wondering how much the insurance will rise by- it will make the 0-60 under 9 seconds (zetec s petrol doe it in 10) which is pretty quick for a first car.

    Many Thanks

    Hi Jack. I would guess that you would cop a significant whack on your insurance premium. Obviously at age 18, you are already going to be paying a lot anyway, but as soon as you say you are modifying the vehicle (especially for increased performance), the insurance company will probably penalise you heavily.
