AJK, now this you can call fraud

(even a broken compass point to the north once in a while)
And if someone was actually driving it in CLE during these 183 days? Where's the fraud?

are you seriously comparing having your car parked 400 miles away for exactly half a day more than required to someone driving his parents car?

One seemingly meets the T&C. Driving his parents car is a bogus argument, as the criteria is not ownership but location of the CAR.

My question was if there is any way to do this without fraud. Any ideas?

I'm sure there's a lot of case law about these things. Its a lot of money for me - can someone recommend a lawyer/field that would know?

As a first step, I'd contact the potential insurer and present your scenario. You don't have to give specifics, just ask where would the car would be "located" for the purposes of the policy if it spent about the same time in two locations.

What would insurance be about in brooklyn, 25 yr old , clean record?

Depends on lots of factors -- particularly, what car is being insured.  Go online and you can get a quote from progressive.com

Believe it or not, they even factor in credit history in determining rate (AFAIK)

I'm crying inside.

CLE looks better and better every day, even though where I'm from (not where I am now) it's gotta be similar, but I didn't think it was that good.

I didn't even think that was possible for a new car.
Updated my address on file and my wife's license from KS to OH and my premiums dropped to under $200 per 6 months :D

Comprehensive is down to $16.02 and collision down to $61.08 per 6 months.
