    As long as it works and has four wheels/four doors/seatbelts/airbags and is more than 1.2L with less than like 100k miles.

    Which one should I go for?

    Guys lets be serious for a moment. `I am not looking for a toy car. Surely there are some really old cars for less than like £100?

    You are expecting a lot from 100 quid car. Remember adding all the costof insurance will be high for any type of car. Get at least a decent car for 1000 Quids or even 500 if you want to spare some change for insurance . get a Toyota Yaris or an old Lexus Ls400 like 1996 one, which you can easily accuire for 1000 bucks.

    If you stretch your budget a little, maybe go for a year 2000 ford focus

    Idk like £300
    But the thing is, if you are looking for a car under £100 it is bound to be very old. With this being said, old cars will have a lot more mileage (problably over 100,000 miles) so you may have to decide whats more important, cost or milage

    £1000 is totally out of my price range though

    I was just planning to drive without insurance tbh so I have that bit covered.

    Ah ok £300 is possible but difficult. Isn't the car basically worthlesss after 100k miles? I have never seen a single car with that many miles lol

    How about a 90s Honda Civic , these are dirt cheap and reliable. You can get a good beater for 200 or so.

    gumtree for cars between £80-£120; https://www.gumtree.com/search?searc...&max_price=120

    I couldnt find much but thats where Id go if i wanted a car at £100, maybe youll get lucky and find a car from a drug addict who is forced to sell cheap.

    yea most are, i couldnt see how to only search for buying the car for £80-£120 but if you flick through the pages you find the odd car to buy eg on 2nd page "too good to scrap" https://www.gumtree.com/p/renault/to...ap-/1215617310
