    Go there and browse cars in the bottom 3 insurance groups

    Preferably Group 2 or 1

    Volvo 340 1.4 - rear wheel drive fun. Find one owned by an old granny on eBay - budget about £500 for a late model ('89-'91 will do). Lowest miles is best, but these cars will do 150000miles and more over their life.

    Hi just looked on Auto Trader (www.autotrader.co.uk) and they range from £1,150 to £1,750 in my area so should be similar in yours! Plus they look damn cute! Good Luck in finding a cool car!

    never fear, bigdave is here.
    you say u want a car a bit different? ok then.
    first of all forget owt french. i wont go into the reasons for this tho.
    forget italian e.g punto and all that stuff.
    think more german and japanese, like suzuki swift, theyre alright. and some have small insurance friendly engines. you cannot really go wrong with a jap car... unless you start putting big sunstrips and wings on it.
    golf mk,1,2, polo 2,3 cars like that. great build quality and you would have more style with one rather than a vauxhall.

    if you want to get some REAL respect think about getting a mini (old one like) theryre timeless. small size engines and they are on classic insurance (old ones). and will turn more heads that ANY corsa with sunstrip and roof spoiler. fact.

    I feel sorry for you.

    I know, cars are so expensive, hey! I've spent so much time saving up for mine, and I ended up having to get a bomb of a car but nevermind it'll do me b/c I'm 17 and will use it for practice/work etc.

    Anyway if you're thinking of getting a newie (like me, hehe), Mitsubishi Mirages are supposed to be quite good and economal - cute too. Male or female? Being female I'm more into cutsey cars anyway lol but then being PC I don't wanna generalise :eek:

    your probably best to go with that 1.0 corsa. Its not essential to have a car with a massive engine. Plus as its a vauxhall, its usually cheaper to buy parts if you ever need to repair it.

    Yeah Kas are alright, try and get one with colourcoded bumpers if you can, the grey bumpered ones tend to fade like nobodies business.
