- Heavily depends on where you work. As little as £4 p/h to as much as £9 p/h for the better paying jobs. Staying in one place long enough to get promoted will get you up to maybe £12 p/h (this is all retail/fast food, which is all you'll really get at 17 with no experience).

- Depending on where you live, anywhere between £1500-£4000.

- If you buy a car upfront (which you should for your first car), then no. Don't buy something you can't afford.

I agree with everything that Aaron702 has just said.
Everywhere pays different, we cant say.
We definitely cant say how much the insurance is going to be- how long is a piece of string?
