    How did you afford that?
    Car + Insurance + driving lessons was my 17th Birthday present from parents. But, i do have to pay for petrol so i'm looking for a job at a supermarket or something.

    Best insurance i found was with Tesco.

    Then you really need to get a mock quote as I really can't see any isnurance companies offering you insurance for it apart from perhaps the 1.4

    I tried getting a mock quote for a Ford Puma and they said they couldn't insure me. I am 23.

    I don't know anything about insurance other than what it does. Where do I get a mock quote?

    go to their sites such as www.directline.co.uk www.tesco.co.uk etc and fill in your details (they won't contact you if you tick the right box to tell them not to) and you can get a quote.

    Oh. My. God.

    Lucky or what!? My parents paid for all my lessons and that alone was expensive enough...nevermind paying for a £6k car AND insurance!!!!!

    Is that a dent on the side of your car or just odd reflections?

    couldn't insure a Ford Puma at 23?

    I'm 21 and am insured on a Group 18 Nissan 200sx, my friend who is 19 has a group 16 306, and another friend has a Subaru Impreza WRX at 20 years old.

    Where do you live, Beirut? or perhaps you haven't shopped around.

    Try www.elephant.co.uk for a quote, if you are doing a mock one, just put in an 'alias' rather than your real name. It was consistently the cheapest for all of my cars.

    Does it matter if you put your real name in?

    LOL no must be just reflections. Only damage is a tiny scratch and ding in the driver's side rear quarter where some **** has opened a door into it. :mad:

    My friend passed in November, and this Weds she got an 8K brand new 06 plate VW Polo. It's gorgeous! Some people :rolleyes:
    Nice, I think a Polo would be my choice now for a brand new small car - love the front bumper styling of the new ones.

    Nearly 3 years ago now, a practically mint Fiat uno M reg start 999cc for around £375 after auction costs, had the infamous idle stalling which we identified the fault on and is now the standard answer for any of the early fire engines - vacuum advance unit failing. Was sad to see the thing go for uni.
