I'm still "learning" (got my test tomorrow) and I've got a 2008 diesel Mitsubishi Colt. There's nothing exciting about it but it's been reliable and fuel costs are cheap.

The same first car as me then. Except mine was red.
Mine ended up being quite unreliable though.

Doesn't matter if it's new or used- you will struggle to insure them as a new driver.

Who pays for the damage if you cause an accident?

But yeah, insurance is expensive in the UK. The cheapest I've seen for a new driver without a black box was £1200 (on a C1/107), and mine is closer to £1800. I did some quotes on older A4/C-Class/3 Series and they were all above £4k.
