Autotrader?

Get a nice little ford fiesta, I love mine!

I got an old-shaped S-Reg Corsa from Network Q about 6 years ago and I've only ever had to swap tyres & bulbs.

I've found it very cheap and economical to run (and low insurance too!!) if that helps at all?

Well done on passing as well!! :thumbsup: :-D

If you try http://www.parkers.co.uk/ then you can get an idea of what price you should be paying on any car you find (Or buy the latest copy in your newsagents/supermarket etc)

They give you the original price, an independent price & a dealers price, and vary these depending on the condition of the vehicle so they're a pretty good bet!

Id advise hitting up autotrader for vauxhall corsa c's there pretty cheap (I know mine was) the 1.0i is group 3 and you can pick one up with not that many miles on for a couple of grand.

If you can afford it the 1.2 is a gd combo of cheapish insurance and enough power for motoring around the first couple of years, also worth either doing pass plus or adding a parent as a named driver on your insurance to bring it down a bit.

Oh and avoid direct line line the plague.. there still fixing my car after an accident 8 months ago!
