Here's an example of how you can make your own decision.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $213
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $134

The chart below shows the comparison of BMW M6 car insurance costs with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The prices are based on no claims or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Should you be buying full coverage?

There is no clear-cut formula that works best for making the decision to drop physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's say your BMW M6 claim settlement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, you would only receive $5,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premium cost is more than $500 annually for full coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are some conditions where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.

Three reasons car insurance is important

Even though it can be expensive, paying for car insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

  • Just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to carry a specific level of liability coverage if you drive a vehicle. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If your BMW has a loan, most lenders will require you to have full coverage to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the lender will be forced to insure your BMW at a more expensive rate and require you to reimburse them the higher price.
  • Car insurance preserves both your BMW and your assets. Insurance will pay for medical expenses incurred in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, also pays expenses related to your legal defense in the event you are sued. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, your car insurance policy will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of insuring your M6 more than cancel out the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is overpaying more than $820 a year so smart consumers compare quotes once a year at a minimum to ensure rates are competitive.
