    Whilst I was learning:
    Car - 03' plate Renault Clio
    Insurance was - £400
    Price - £400

    I scrapped that before I passed (never drove it, hated it) so really, my actual first car is my current one, which is:

    Car - 61' plate 3-Door Ford Fiesta
    Insurance was - £1000 (with black box)
    Price paid - £4200 (Have to pay my parents back for it)

    1.2 Corsa (got rid of it after a couple of months after getting bored of it).

    Insurance was about £1200 third party

    Car was £2k, paid for it after saving up from the part time job I had at the time.

    Wonder how many of the replies here are deliberately avoiding answering how they paid for it cause their parents did.
