    Yo what's up people I just moved to the UK and I'm looking for a first car i want something i slide around a bit for fun. I can't get the MX5 because I'll need a car that seats at least 4 people. i know insurance here is a lot more crazy then back in the states i eventually want to get an s13 but for now i need a POS car really any pointers or suggestions?

    whatever BMW e36 you can afford, starting at 4 cylinder POS for 300 quid, upto 3k+ plus for an M3.

    How old are you? Insurance isn't too bad for people in their late 20s upwards

    In the UK its hard at 18. Volvo 360 in my opinions the best bet.

    2litre, 1ton, and rear wheel drive.
