Driving Society: Upgrading Car, advise? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm nearly 21 years old and have been driving since 17, having 3 years no claims.
    Atm, I'm paying around £700 for insurance but i don't think it will change too much, regarding the car.

    My car history has been basic first cars e.g. vauxhall corsa 1.2, Volkswagen polo 1.2, ford fiesta 1.4. Some of these were shared between me and my brother.
    I've always put cars before anything else (main interest) and studying automotive engineering as well haha!

    My budget has been set around saving for a few years and treating myself for my 21st. Budget: £7500

    My ideas were:
    Golf GTI 2.0 06 onwards, Audi A3 tdi s line 2.0, bmw 118d are my main three suggestions.

    Still debating whether to go for petrol or diesel, maybe your ideas will change my perspective As well as going to a car auction to grab a good deal!

    If you have any other ideas, please share! Thanks

    I'd go with the tdi A3, my tdi golf has never missed a beat or for something a bit different, Volvo c30
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
