    Hi all

    I would like to add first of all that I have a fair bit of experience driving tractors and race DH at a national level, being 16 I understand I’ll be cannon fodder for some unsavoury lads on here ( I UNDERSTAND THE RISKS OF DRIFTING)

    I’ll be buying my first car soon and was wondering if u lot had any ideas for a rear wheel drive car, I’m confident in tweaking and fettling so power isn’t really an issue and I’m not proud enough to ignore estates!

    I love the look of the e30 and am also intrested I the older volvos.

    Got quoted 3 grand on a mk2 Miata without a black box however do any of you know how much a black box would knock off that. I believe that my “battery might go flat” if I wanted to have a thrash around the local.

    Thanks for your time guys

    Will

    How are you getting quotes on insurance at 16? Am I missing something?

    MX5, Volvo 340, Vauxhal Omega seem to be the cheapest RWD's to insure.
    GoCompare is your friend, so is Adrian Flux... Good luck :D
