    This week, Alex, Ethan and Jack try to buy the perfect first car for £2000. The only problem is, the £2000 includes tax and insurance… Donate to Driven To Cure …


    Yesss boys I was howling at the electrical tape 🤙

    Ha, what's that 106 owner come dressed as?


    206cc 1.6 (£400) 1 years no claims £99 a month full comp with aviva


    First car at 21?? Who is this peasant

    P S

    I had a 1.4 Skoda fabia, £30 road tax £850 for insurance cheap to maintain from UK too


    Were Golf MK4s too expensive? When i lived in Poland every 18-21 year old used to own one. Usually completely blacked out with a cone filter

    Have you guys taken a break from high budget film and decided to sit in the living room with a camera for a while, because it seems that way.


    Trust me the 106 is a fun little gokart on the road. Even though it's not powerful, you can throw it in corners and have fun at 35 mph.
    Drove one for a few months on the hills of Burgundy in France.


    Good car tbh and the saxos I had a VTR and currently use a 106. Fun cheap cars.

    Damn it, you made me want my old red 106 1.1XR back! And it was my first car. Though insurance in Slovenia is much cheaper, I think it was like 600€.


    I'm 20 and I've got a 2008 Toyota Auris SR

    Small 1st car to keep insurance down is a bit of a myth… My daughter is 21,just bought her first car. She got a 2005 volvo S40 2.4 with fsh and 12 my months mot for £980. Insurance with a curfew would have been less than £1000, she went for fully comp with black box and it cost £1200.


    Do an old persons car for 3000


    Now you see I was very sensible when I bought my first car about a year ago.
    I went out and bought the very cheapest is200 on gumtree before checking insurance
    I still don't have insurance

    (still don't have my license but that still doesn't mean I can afford it 😂)
    At least its different though? 😂

    Jeff Bumgravy

    "you have to declare all the mods" LOL, who actually ever did that?

    William Lufta

    I was actually looking to buy that exact car from that guy in farnham about 1 month ago :0

    its the reason why so many cars are driven without insurance in the UK. the Police dont even make a dent in the number because as soon as they remove a car – that person just goes out and buys another.
    Who can blame them when a car is £500 and the insurance is £2000+.
    I have a car but its in my Dads name (for ex wife reasons) – And most insurance companies want £1500+ Thats with full no claims, no points, nothing. Yet the same car with my name on it would cost me £300. Its a complete scam
    But the insurance companies have been allowed to break the law for years and nothing is done about it. the industry is a scam – but as they pay the political parties lots of money – it will never be looked into.
    The very fact you can buy "no claims" protection – proves its a scam.

    Are Honda C50 allowed in the UK ? WHAT

    It's utterly despicable how expensive it is for young people to get a car on the road.

    The economy absolutely depends on the mobility of our youth and to price them off the roads – the very mechanism that drives economic success is a scandal and will eventually harm us all.

    i had the same car as my first car , lowered , alloys and a k&n air filter , then stereo that cost twice as much as the car did lol

    The Comet

    It's always amazed me, how our so called vulnerable young adults only legal way onto the road is to drive a dangerous highly unsafe piece of crap! Yet were constantly told young ppl are our future and to keep them safe lol.
