2006 peugeot 206 1.1 £9995
2000 Ford Ka 2 Collection 1.3, parents bought it from my aunt so I don't know the exact price, I think it was worth in the region of £2500 (excellent condition - well it was before I got it anyway!!)
£600 for mk 3 Vauxhall Astra 1.4. Unfortunately I had a few problems with it so it was flogged.
my car:98/R reg Nissan Micra 1.0 shape, cost £1800, my parents bought it for me and i own half due to my AS grades, if i get my A2 ones i'll own the whole car
my first car is my parent's mondeo LX, a 1.8 16v 136bhp beast.. Woohoo, this thing tears.. everyone at my school has fiestas, polos and corsas, all under 1.2 i always have people challenge me.. guess who wins??? 0-60 about 8 secs common...
It's the 2 litre that's 136 bhp as far as I know, the 1.8 is only 115. The 1.8 is just over 10 seconds to 60, the 2.0 about 9 seconds.
had an induction kit fitted and cams done.. beat that.. its prob more than 136 now
Funny that you quote 136 bhp which "happens" to be the 2.0 spec ...lol. You're still at school, who does the insurance on such a modified car then?
Got my '92 Range rover for £2200 off ebay. Fantastic condition with all the extras and the best model year (no cat. convertor or air suspension). Love it to bits - will sit happily on the motorway at 80 all day and can beast about offroad!
ppl dont buy a old person's car (small 3dr hatchbacks)
u can get a sporty vectra/mondeo/celica for under a grand - bargain
my insurance is bazzilic... i had it insured on my dad's name with 6 years NCB for 1800.. not bad.. the car is going soon though.. to be replaced by a GTi or a Punto Sporting
So you were insured on your dad's car through sixth form...so are a lot of people, not quite the same as you were implying previously, nevermind.
