I have recently passed my driving test, and I am about to turn 18, but I cant decide what car to chose.
I am looking at 3 options

2020 Mercedes A35
2020 Mercedes C250
2020 BMW 3 series M Sport

My decision will be based on the insurance costs.
Does anyone know a rough idea of the prices on insurance for someone like me to drive.

I have a current salary of around 200k a year, so money isn't an issue.

Any help will be appreciated.

So you say money isn’t an issue but you’re concerned about insurance price...? Why does it matter

Money's no issue, except when money's an issue.

I am concerned about insurance because I dont want to waste my money if I can save some. I want to buy a nice car as reward to myself, and I have worked hard to be where I am.
I make my money through the foreign exchange markets, but that is not the point.
I would rather spend the least amount on insurance where I can. So I can invest that money in different areas.

I am being 100% serious

No one is going to be able to help with this as these are not the sort of car that 17 yr olds drive. It just comes across as bragging.

well to reply sensibly, your going to get absoloutly shafted on all those cars through insurance, and I would be very worried about your lack of experience on the road with these "powerful" cars (objective as you wouldn't have done your lessons in a car with over 200bhp)

if you don't end up dinging it then your extremely lucky... 90% of new drivers ding their car within the first year but it's your money, you do what you like

Thank you.

there is nothing wrong with having something nice, everyone wants a nice car but even at my age (almost 30) I sometimes drive my work cars with a bit of speed and when it gets twitchy, I back off completely.

if your after something nice but won't cost you the earth (or your life) look at the seat Leon's/Audi a1/focus st line. whilst they don't have much street cred, you won't burn through fuel and they can be driven fast whilst still being fun with the added bonus of being quite low insurance groups espically for young people. the a1 is probably the biggest group but it's your decision

try and get test drives and don't go into it with the mindset of having the best looking car because you'll have it for a few years, comfort and economy should be on top of the list as the UK is about to hit the **** with the economy.
