    How can you call the tigra a student car. You would call the puma one and they were competitriors. THe insurance would probably be too high for starters. Its a compact coupe not a student run about

    :laugh: You could always get a roof box.

    Or one of those Saab 9-3 convertibles. You can get ski-racks as a factory option

    Little cars are great in many aspects. . . . .

    generally you don't need in excess of 200 brake for it to get moving fast.

    Look at the Lupo Gti at 125bhp - thats pretty quick for a 8 sec time to 100kph.
    Others include: Renault 5 GT Turbo - OBSCENE! although I wouldn't drive one due to its ugliness.

    Out of the poll above - the Tigra should win hands down. The best design, the best quality (choke; well out of that lot anyway) and more electrical equipment than the rest.

    What 170 brake car do you have E12 MAT? In fact let me play a guessing game. GIve me a slight clue!

    Do it! - I would if I could, but there isn't anyone willing to sell me a permit where I study.

    Its just the fuel - ouch.
    Why is it so little to insure? What group insurance is it.

    For 19 that is incredibly cheap. I paid £2500 last year (cheapest I could find) for my group 18 car. This year, somehow & I don't know how (I'm convinced it was a system failure), I'm paying only a £1000. I'm 24 by the way living in London.

    its group 16 i think, 2 ncb with norwich union in a low crime area. plus its a family car where as if you buy a saxo they think swilly and rack up the premiums.

    what sort of car have you got must have 200bhp for a group 18

    cheap cars to insure:
    rover ti 200bhp
    vectra sri v6 170bhp
    alfa romeo 156 v6 200bhp
    cavalier v6 170bhp

    as quick as vts but half the insurance
