    I have an E36 325i - its perfect. Bounces off the limiter all night long and doesn't give me any problems....

    :no: far from perfect, even at 20 id imagine the insurance to be stupid on a 325i

    you need to look at 2.0ltr and less to start with:nod:

    if it were me i personally would just either bide my time until i can insure something ( you can still be around the scene )

    or buy a cheap but efficient drift slag and trailer it to events

    or just pay outta my arse for insurance and more than likely have a smack in it on the road while trying to have a slide

    excatly mate, nothing from stopping you being at events and practice days... just walk up to a randomer and ask to jump in for a few laps... they might say yeah they might say no... worth an ask
    i would say yeah, you seem like a good enough geeza

    most people as the drift days are nice blokes, just dont try and talk the talk cause you will look like an idiot :thumbs: just be you lol

    once youve done that and your gagging to have a go for yourself, and once you can finally afford the stupidly priced insurance...go get a car and smoke as many tyres as possible!

    dude just get an s13 there actually cheaper than you would think to insure when i passed my test you just need to ring around companys use owners club discounts ect ect just to get costs down i found my r33 skyline 800 a year cheaper to insure than my c2 vts daily
    i actually have the c2 on trade policy and use my mr2 turbo to build more no claims as the c2 with its tiny 1.6 gutless engine is still rediculous to insure

    Mx5's can buy cheap and insurance is cheap and they can take some beating but not the best on fuel although very good fun to drive

    i'm in the same position mate
    looking around for a first car,thank god my parents have agreed to insure it on their name and split that bill with me.
    well here in belgium quite alot of people use bmw's 320,325's to drift and some older opel/vauxhals to since those are cheap to insure
