    Out of all those mentioned so far, the 106 is probably the best driver's car; it's a great little chassis. Kas are also surprisingly good. MuvverRussia is right; don't modify, avoid 4WD Japanese cars if you ever want affordable insurance...

    Nah i saw something completely off the hook when i was out cruising on Friday in Aberdeen. It looked like the body off an old skyline, but it was a cross between an EVO and a Scooby and something else. Pure black, no badges, BIG spoiler, dump valve, induction kit for sure and an engine that sounded like a Mclaren lol. Lol me and my mate tried to race it up Union Street(main road in Abdn) in a tuned cavi 2l Sri and lol surprize it ate bthe road up and flew away....Literally!!

    3rd party fire and theft? or fully comp?

    Or insured as a second driver (which is on very dodgy grounds legally and a false economy in the end - early NCB is worth far more than paying the extra for a couple of yrs)

    With 3k get yourself a VW polo or something. I learnt getting a fast car when age 17 isnt always the best idea, just get something basic which you can learn in.

    I've got a Seat Ibiza at the mo', which I love. My next car is going to be a Golf, but I cant afford a new car for a few years yet. My bf said we will run my car into the ground first... he never mentioned his car... charming :mad:

    That sounds extrememly cheap - I'm insured on my mum's W reg Ford Fiesta 1.25 (don't have my own car) fully comp and its costing about £500 a year...

    And I've been driving for a year and a half (and not had a claim at all).

    for me on a 1 litre micra would be £700 fully comp in my name. driving for 2 years (no crashes) but no no claims coz im insured in mothers name, simply because it costs 250 quid for four people to be insured on it in her name, coz she has 300 years no claims.

    Who are you insured with Chicken I was £525 fully comp as a learner with me as the first named driver last year with one of the cheaper insurance companies for young people. Obviously I'm older but I'm under 25 so it wouldnt be that much more expensive for you surely. Some of my friends spend tons on car insurance simply because they cant be arsed to shop around. That was the cheapest quote I had the most expensive was more than £2500

    I wouldnt get a peugeot 106, I got an R reg one last year cos nearly £3000 and it was that unreliable that I had to trade it in within 6 months.

    Then you got a bad one. What was wrong with it? Who did you buy it from? Do you know how to take care of a car?

    Wzz is right, they're fantastic little cars, and easily the best supermini currently available if you want to enjoy driving and learn how to drive well. They've got excellent adjustable little chassis.
