Whilst we're on the subject of cars, can anyone recommend an insurance provider? I got quoted 2.5k a year last night. >.<;


Get your parents as the main drivers. It's only 500 for me and my parents on a vauxhall astra 1.6 with More Than.

Then again if you want to be the main driver yourself, it will allways be sky high at first since your a new driver.
...just try every insurance company an try and bargain discounts with them.

personally, i want a ford ka. i've loved the shape of those since they came out, i always said i wanted that to be my first car. however, i wouldn't knock back a nice wee corsa if it was offered. not one thats all ned-ified though
when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

The boy I'm seeing at the moment has a Corsa and he wants to ned it up.

I've told him I won't get in it if he does.

Ideally, I'd like a mini, but I can't see me affording that, can you? tongue.gif

mini is nice to drive. Nasty habit of falling apart tho sad.gif

I did a quote for a 6 year old impreza 2 litre model. Was only 1200 though that is taking into account having 1 years no claims and being 19 but still its only 10 payments of 131

If i am not here i am somewhere else

i love my peugeot 206, its lurvly! its now 2 weeks and a day old, and i totally love it! i think its a great wee car for learners, nifty but neat, and personally i find it easy to drive biggrin.gif

but my brother does have a mini, and i know what you mean, think its a great car - very nifty and sporty (well his is the sporty type) lol, i was soo annoyed when he got it, as that was like my realistic dream car for a while, but then i got my wee peugeot, so i no longer mind laugh.gif

its soo sad though, they have stopped making the 206 modal ohmy.gif replaced it with the 207 mad.gif its not the same, personally i prefer the 206, just cannot adjust to the 207 style.
