Was just testing it lol, It's just html characters, Sorry, Good luck finding a car.

If your female and over 25 it may be cheaper.

However, My insurance halved after getting 1 year no claims...!!!

Have you tried looking at the Auto Trader website? I found it excellent when I bought my car last year, and you can narrow your search to within a certain number of miles of a specified postcode, as well as choosing various other options (make, fuel type, min price, max price, model, age, mileage, body type, transmission, engine size, colour, private and/or trade sellers, number of doors, etc). You can also add keywords in the search box, though bear in mind that the usefulness of this depends on whether the sellers have advertised their cars correctly and mentioned its model type etc in the ad.

By the way, many of the car supermarkets and dealers also advertise cars on Auto Trader, so I think that you are saving time if you check the website before venturing out to explore the various premises personally.

auto trader is a must, also before you buy the car id look for insurance too because if your a 17-21 it will be hefty(around 1000) unless your a girl it would be half that, i wouldnt suggest going on mums insurance because your going to want to build up your no claims bonus for when your older.

I have to go on my mums insurance mate, I've tried a 1.0 litre in my own name and it was something like £1,200. (may have even been £2,000)

So yeah I'm going on my mums insurance, it's my best option as of now.

Is 80K miles a no no for a 2003 model car?

Nope 80k on a 7 year old car is about average :thumbsup: In general most drivers cover around 10 - 12,000 miles a year - unless you're like me and do 30k+ lol but that's not normal !!

Looks good - just make sure you get someone who knows cars to have a good look at it for you ! And if your mum is taking the insurance in her name you'll have to tell the insurance co that you are the main user or they'll do you for fronting and your mum could be in some serious trouble :-( It's a pain but it's worth getting the no claim bonus in your own name ready for next year. Good luck :thumbsup:

I've already got it as me as the main drive mate...does that mean I build up the no claims and not her? Also my grandad is good friends with a mechanic and has been for years so I think i'll take him with me lol!

Cheers for the info mate :thumbsup:

If the policy is in her name then she'll be the one building up the no claim bonus .... some companies say they give ncb to named drivers for when they take their own policy, but that only applies if you stay with the same company - who arent always the cheapest :-( ! But so long as they know you are the main driver then I'd get a year or two of driving under your belt and then you'll have more experience and be older so your own policy will be cheaper anyway !

Most garages send trade-ins straight to the auctions so it's always worth calling in and seeing what they've got round the back - however anything they sell you from there will be "sold as seen" without any warranty as it's not one of their usual sale cars - ideal if you know what you are doing as they just want to get shut of them so def take your mechanic and you may get a bargain :-)

take someone with you who knows their stuff and you'd be ok. Going back a few years when i was there tho,was just call Empress back then,apparently the biggest independent used car retailer in the world. Not any more of course.
