I have a 1.6 VTEC lined up, have already had one write off, but am insured in my mum's name. Im 18, and taking the crash into consideration, i have been quoted £770 for the year, which i didnt think was to bad at all!

I dont think that's a bad a deal if your buying brand new, although i do think you can find something that has been looked after for alot less. That way you would have more money for mods too. I would rather go for a better engine, rather than buying new. The frustration with buying new cars, is it's always best to let them settle in before you get the best from them...although this Honda we're talking about ;)

Welcome to the site :D

would never recommend somebody to ever buy from new unless they are loaded lol!!

the money you lose the second you leave that garage is unreal, find yourself one thats maybe even just a couple of years

with low mileage and previous female non smoking driver lol!! will save you so much money and it will be as new!!

the EP civic sports are nice i have to say, insurance cant be too expensive for your age for a 1.6 vtec, few of my

friends have them
