Yep, currently working for my dad over Easter but can’t rely on him for paying me on time. 182/172 not on the cards yet, still too young/not enough NCB for a decent insurance quote. Looking for jobs in huddersfield atm, if I can get one, I’ll be saving up, but atm I’ve fallen out of love with my turd. Had a heap of issues with it recently. Still, we will see what happens with time, I’ll probably end up keeping it and paying my insurance monthly. I need to focus on passing my course for now.

I know im going back a page but clumber park could be a good meet up, if you dont want to pay to go in could have it on the grass area as you approach, then when the ticket bloke comes around just relocate :)

Proper old mans car! I’ve been using my dads mondeo st for last 3 weeks and tbh I’m quite liking it! Heated seats the lot! Saving a fortune on fuel aswell, still looking for a daily to replace the Clio

You got the dogging edition. Extra room in the back, wipe clean seats and lots of windows.
Can even open the back windows from the buttons on the drivers door.

This has got heated seats and I just gone through my first full tank of fuel and got over 50mpg. It's great, I love it!

Sounds good does that! Can’t beat a Volvo aswell! You’ll have to take the poor Clio out for a run

Honestly for just over £700 It's absolutely bang on.

I did try last weekend and it was as dead as a dodo. Hoping to jump it back in life and give it a bit of love this weekend with a full service.

Dependent upon the date, yes. Although I've STILL not driven it so I'll need to jump it and make sure everything's ok haha.

😂😂
Someone needs to give him some pocket money to buy a 182
He could easily buy and insure one with what he’s spent on it and the insurance he pays cos he declares all his mods.

Well looking at the quotes atm the compulsory is £500 for most policies then I'm adding £250 voluntary. That's the only way I can get it under about £1.5k

Ay-up

A belated congrats on passing your test, but you saying how much your insurance was / is, got me thinking.

I passed my test in January 1995, aged 17. I worked in the pub game, so my insurance was loaded because of that, and after I’d got a years no claims, all the rest of my cars were (usually) French hot hatches. My insurance didn’t dip below £1000 until I was 25, and only went down to something sensible when I got to 30.

Considering the average wage 25 years ago, and how much further £1 went back then, all things considered, £1500 insurance for a new driver now seems like better value than £1000 - £1200 for a new driver 25 years ago.

Anyway, Sheffield here.
