    want to get another car now as my astra has been written off...what you think?

    My dad said i have to get a small car 1.2 ....so i found a really nice one
    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/1271931.htm

    he wants around £4000 with the BBS rims and it will have a full service before it gets sold.

    what do you think of the price?...

    might need to get a loan off my dad lol...but i still haven't been told how much i will get for my astra...hopefully £3000...

    wont be to everyones taste, but i like it, except for the wheels really

    More to the point though, what stood out to me was your dad saying you "have" to get a 1.2.

    How old are you mate? You must be 17 at least obviously. Unless they were shelling out for any of the payments (vehicle/insurance/tax) then they wouldn't be telling me once i was 18. Only time it's different is if they're paying for it really.

    Looks ok that. Just needs some smaller tyres fitting as the chunky look doesn't really suit the BBS rims.

    If your actually wanting a smaller car thats fine,

    however, IG:3 is the Corsa 1.2 Sxi, with the mods listed and declared will cost you a shed loads on Insurance anyway.

    MPG is listed at 46, so expect to see arround 41 max depending on how heavy footed you are.

    and tax brand is F (68.50 / 6 months)

    you'll hardily save much.. less than 200 a year.

    I wouldn't bother down grading, you'll definatly get bored fast and wont be impressed when the time comes (for when you need some more space in the car!!). lols.

    If thats the case mate, I would forget about buying any modified cars for now or even modifying them, go for something that looks nice as standard that you won't have to mod and lay low for a while, take it careful for a year or two. :/

    U need a completely standard car for a year, that corsa is pretty modified from its stock form which will cost you a hell of a lot.

    I'd get some quotes mate. 3 points don't really mean much these days, and those mod's are all non-performance. Someone like Adrian-Flux should get you a decent price on it.
