    Question First Car... (Again)

    hey all,

    Im saving up for my first ever car, and was wondered what you think i should get, i was thinking about a 1.3SR nova. But what do you think of them and is there anything better. I got about £1000 (or will have) to spend.

    for a grand you can get a lot better than a Nova SR ( you'll have a job finding one that hasn't been thrashed )

    you could always but my Rover Vitesse for £700 , but thats possibly not the most suitable 1st car

    why not look at somethign like a pug 106 Rallaye (- fast and should be in your budget )

    I dont know much about Nova's (except how much I hate them ) but I think you can do a lot better for £1000.

    Try checking autotrader, theres a hell of alot of choice for that price bracket mate.

    I'd also say consider ford, but then thats cuz I like ford's. but they are pretty cheap to buy and parts are easily found for them.

    can't beat a decent mk4 escort 1.3 for a 1st car. cheap to insure, you can get a damn nice one for £1000.

    if war is the answer, then we are asking the wrong question
