Welcome to the family Alex!

 

Now, as weird as this might sound - are you single? :P I started a thread to see if we could get all the single people together and do a bit of matchmaking, and we seem to be short of woman so its not going so well :D :lol:

wont be long and love will be landing on your scuffplate :P :D

 

So is this for your first motor or did you have a different one for before you passed your test? its a good choice for a first car! although I bet the insurance companies love you for the amount it costs for your first year!

at least your car warrants the cost I suppose!

 

my first car was a citroen AX 14years old, 4 forward gears, third party alone was 1600 and that was fronting the insurance (before it was illegal) going alone I was looking at £2500.

 

More amusing, if I could have afforded a hyundai accent, only 9 years old, the insurance would have been 2300 alone, or £1400 fronting, that was a 1.8 petrol :P

Luckily ha, 1.6 diesel with 46K on the clock for just over 3 grand.

 

I was fronting with a 1.1 rover '100' and it was still over 2 grand  :wacko: you should have gone for the hyundai aha. 

 

Think i might have awhile to get cheap insurance ha.

yeah I probably should have but the money in pocket wouldnt stretch at the time....

 

As for the insurance, best advice I can offer is get the accelerator schemes. 10 months insurance, you pay less for the period but at the end you have a full years NCB. Of course, you cant be driving for say 3 years, and acrue 5 years NCB, but you would be surprised.

 

I had a knock 4.5 years ago, lost all my NCB but now I have 6 years NCB under my belt.
