i'm 27 - looked at insurance a little bit, looking at around 1100 for the year. my budget is 800 to buy a car so would hope to find something quite nice. only been looking on autotrader though. nowhere else seems to be that good :)

insurance shouldnt be too bad then...

just keep looking at auto trader most the older fiesta's 95 onwards are really good runners, and for around 600-800 quid you can pick up a good condition one now days :)

tesco compare insurance website is very good. gave me a good quote.

autotrader seems to be the best - what about ebay or is it best to not look there for cars? seems alot cheaper on ebay but might have to travel further to see it/buy it

i suggest doing quotes on independent websites i.e. direct line who offer insurance without the "finders fees" that compare the market etc.. price in.

eBay is great, just make sure you throughly check the cars over, my mate just bought a volvo on eBay and he LOVES it!
