    Simply what you would suggest for a first car, it can be anything that I could actually get insured on straight after passing, not too expensive if I go for an older one, less then £3000 preferably.

    It can be a classic, or something recent, just hit me with your ideas

    MG Midget, you'll get a nice 1275 RWA for £3K
    MGB Roadster for £3K you'll get a usable rubber bumper model
    MGB GT £3K buys you a really good one of these I think (if you really must :rolleyes: )
    E30 BMW coupe
    E21 BMW coupe
    Porsche 924, don't listen to the crap people talk about these YES they are a bit unpowered but it's your first car as I doubt it will be more underpowered than your mates cars but your will have a fantastic chassis!

    A nissan micra. Either that or a Hyundai getz.
    They are both reliable, cheap to buy and run, and arent too bad on insurance.
