    I agree with Ape, if basing it purely on looks.

    Oh well done you! Im a spoilt brat my parents have bought me a car :woo: (I am paying the insurance though, which is a fortune) well until I go to uni next year then they are giving it to my wee brother to learn in... Do you have your own car?
    what car do you have and how much is your insurance?

    I definetely want to learn to drive but I just don't see the point when I can't afford the car, insurance and the maintenance of it afterwards unless i get a job.

    Could always be insured as a named driver on your parents' car. Insurance is much cheaper, and you don't have the other costs of a car. I was going to get a car, but decided that I wouldn't because I won't have enough use whilst I'm at uni and didn't want to have to pay for MOT, maintenance, road tax and so on. My parents have been kind and paid for my insurance and petrol.

    For example, you could start building up your NCB (with Direct Line, at least) and so on now, rather than in 4 years.

    VW Polo 1.4litre 16V reg. 2006 I pay just over 100 pounds a month... Not that bad really the car is worth a fair bit so I guess its fair enough, also if I were to write it off we would get the full price my parents paid for it when it was new, which is much more than we could sell it for now!

    i don't know if i fancy driving a toyota avensis estate to be honest.. even as a named driver i guess the insurance would still be >£1k per year?

    did you meet your cambridge offer btw?

    Not sure, sorry, although I can see it's probably going to have a reasonably large engine - maybe give them a call to ask?

    The cost of my insurance was deliberately factored in when we were buying a new car, so we've got a little 1 litre Hyundai i20 which I think was only around £100 to add me on (it's quite nice - small, but plenty gadgets, gets around 50 MPG and is very light and nimble so long as it isn't carrying more than about 2). On the other hand, the 1.6L 306 that was going to be mine was more like £3000 (with me as the only driver).

    did you meet your cambridge offer btw?
    Short: no.

    Long: no, I got bands 122 instead of 112 but haven't yet been rejected so I'm hoping I stand a chance of ameliorating my off-day in maths with a decent mark in STEP. I'm waiting for the English results to find out, though I've reconciled myself with going to Edinburgh.
