    Question Is it worth it?

    Currently got:

    Fiesta LX 5dr 99 V Reg (not lastest new shape, but not the older sad looking shape either) 1.25 Zetec engine, Air Con, Power Steering, heat thing on front glass. Whatcar values it at about £3300 private sale. 40k miles

    Would it be worth selling that and getting a same spec smaller engine low mileage V reg ish Ford KA in order to get cheaper insurance? (obviously paying the same amount for a ford KA)

    Or would it just not be worth the hassle due to not saving much on insurance...

    If his car is worthabout £3300 he could have.....

    33 of them

    But luckily he wants a normal car with a proper chassis.....

    and his V reg is cool

    I'd keep the 1.25, it's actually smaller than the fiesta engine anyway (although a lot more powerful). The 1.25 was designed by Yamaha, hence it's awesome revvyness (is that a real word?)
