    I am currently driving my sisters car as a named driver (since Dec 2014 when I passed my test) the car is a Hyundai Getz 1.1 gsi (very nippy car since its so lightweight) but anyways me and my sister will be going our own ways and I need my own car.

    I really don't want a french car like a corsa, preferably Japanese or german.

    Also want to have an insurance policy where I am the main driver and NO telematics (blackbox) (I have bought a private reg and insurance companies will only allow it on a car if I own the car and am the main driver on the policy).

    The best quotes I have got so far (I have no NCB and haven't had my licence for a full year) :

    VW Polo 1.2 E 2008 - £1800 (£1900 if I decide to modify it with tints, alloys, sound system, coil-overs)

    VW Golf 1.4 Match 2003 - £2100 (£2400 if I decide to modify the car with tints, alloys, sound system, coil-overs)

    Does anyone have a car that they could recommend for me? Or any young drivers that have good cars that they could recommend?

    Thanks

    If you have any modifications, then you have to declare them, otherwise if the insurance find out then you are in big trouble (they will cancel the insurance etc etc).
    Id recommend looking at comparison sites to get an idea of which companies are cheaper for you, then go to them directly (as its cheaper that way).
    Why dont you try a hyundai getz? You say your sister has one that you have driven and you seem to think its decent. I had one myself and the insurance was decent on it.

    Yeah when I got the quotes I did declare all modifications as I do know about the risks if you are caught not declaring them and yeah they were cool with the modifications I declared.

    Also I have tried Compare the market and GoCompare but their quotes (without any mods declared) were £5000 plus which is just stupid.

    I mean yeah my sisters Hyundai Getz is decent but I hate how the car is a bit too lightweight that it makes to much noise and it shakes a lot and hate the cheap interior (sadly my sisters one is all plastic interior and no leather at all) Want to get a heavy car like a golf and have a comfortable smooth ride.

    What about a Renault Clio? I've been driving mine for 3 years now and it's been great! very little repairs have been needed. It's an '03 plate too.

    Skoda fabia is the polo alternative, Seat leon for the Golf.
    Consider the focus.

    How about the older Fiestas from around 2000? Actually pretty decent cars - I don't think they're too expensive to insure

    Vauxhall Corsa is a good choice, you can get an 08+ plate for around 2 grand
