    That is a crazy first car, a 2 litre engine must've cost a lot to insure, and fuel can't have been cheap!

    I had a Kia Picanto. It was my stepdad's before he got diagnosed with Parkinson's and needed a bigger car so he gave me the little Picanto. Had it for about 6 months before it got written off. Got a Suzuki Ignis now.

    I got it travelling in New Zealand so all it needed was a 'Rego' and fuel there was pretty cheap so it wasn't too bad! Although fuel and accommodation was the main cost of the journey while i was travelling!

    :lol: Really? It was ~£500.

    Some insurance people valued it at like £375 so maaaaybe we got ripped off but it has a brand new MOT with no advisories so I think it's okay.

    Honestly I don't know anything about cars and this one was a bit of a panic buy after the storms last week wrecked my SO's motorbike, so I'm just glad we didn't end up with a rusty old pile of junk. Fingers crossed it holds out :crossedf:
