Seeing as there are so many threads and I'm totally stuck, what was your first car, and what would you recommend for me? I'll hopefully pass my test around September time and in Sept 2010 will be off to uni (I hope!). I'd want a car decent enough to be able to go 3hours ish uni to home every month or so and one that could fit some stuff in. I didn't mind KA's, but my Mum says they have that little 'oomph' I should go for something with a bit better engine? KA's are between 1-1.3cc I think. I'm looked at Peugeot 206' too but I can't help thinking they are a bit expensive for what they are... I can probably stretch to about £4500 but remember, the insurance mustn't cripple me :blush2: any ideas..?
