    Go for a small cheap hatch.

    I paid 400 for my Clio and it has run fine for nearly three years. It cost me about 200 to get it through it's last MOT and I've just spent 100 for a new exhaust but it runs well and the insurance is cheap.

    I know that if anything happens which is expensive I can just scrap it and get another without losing too much.

    At the end of the day, you can make yourself skint getting a pretty new car - what happens when that needs fixing and you don't have the money?

    Thats my views.

    Extra respect for actually navigating around the Kettering road system

    I've got a punto, it's going through a rough patch at the moment, head gasket, tax and MOT all at the same time

    Been driving for 7 years now - been wanting to do my motorbike test for a while now but never seem to have the extra cash. I will get through it though when I come into the money.

    Yeah I was considering that actually - getting a motor bike that is but I enjoy listening to my music too much and the warmth in the winter - yes I do know you can get leathers lol kinky some would say lol

    Oddly enough i get more wet taking off my wet stuff after a ride - modern day bike gear is excellent for water proof and warmness.
    I don't like leathers, so its a Buffalo jacket, over trousers, Frank Thomas boots with some Salomon Ski socks....
    Just got some gloves from TK Maxx - they are great with some undergloves on....
