Nice car man!

What insurance company would you guys recommend for a 17yr old? (almost 18).

On about my 20th lesson now, going well. Find it really hard to judge the width of the car sometimes though. Dead scared of hitting anything next to it (parked cars etc). Been fine so far though.

I want to get in some private practice without paying 24-25 quid a hour for the AA ones, which frankly I don't think are that good anyway.

Looks like a solid buy mate. Good find. Should take this opportunity to drop a hayabusa engine in there or something

A guy in work just baught a mk2 mondeo 2.0 zetec for around the 1k mark, got it halfway home and the ceramic in the cat shattered somehow, blocking the exhaust. Backpressure has ruptured the gaskets on two of the headers, burst the cylinder head gasket, poped out all 4 rings, bent the valves and fused two sparkplugs into the cover. Plan now is to drop an M50b28 engine with 60k on it in which should be sick.

Technex. The cheapest companies ive seen (and that ive seen friends go with) have been (varies depending on car) Prudential, Tesco, Nationwide and the post office.

It even has its own generator because it will make the power net bug out if it fires up
