My Jaguar XJS (4.0) L6 is a great car to drive and definitely more economical than the 5.3 V12.

I mean you need some comfort in life :P

yeah i think you'll struggle to find good looking and under 1500 - you'll be looking pre 2006 really, there might be some excepions, but an 06 corsa or 07 polo?

Japanese cars i.e. Toyota, Honda, Nissan are supposed to be very reliable. Get 10-13 year old ones, they'll run really well.
Avoid French cars, esp at your price range. When they get old, loads of problems arise with it, so yeah.

See this thread for advice: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4825738

Getting cheap insurance isn't as simple as getting a car under a 1.3 litre engine.

My first car was a Fiat Panda 1.3, comfortable, nippy, economical, didn't go wrong, easy to park. Insurance for first year was £850 I think. Second year after I had written someone's car off in it was £800. You can get one for £1500 easy.
