Does anyone have information on the availability of liability and hull insurance for a low time (<100 hours) private pilot for a SR2X. The plane will hopefully be purchased soon (next month or so), but I hear Global has increased its minimum to 500hrs w/ IFR? Other options?

There aren’t any palatable options right now. It depends a little bit upon where you reside. Insurance might not be available at all. There is one company that will write practically anyone including student pilots in SR-22s, but their premiums are quite high (350K aircraft + 1 million limited to $100,000 per passenger would likely be over $15,000 per year.) That company is not available on the east coast nor in select other states like LA.
