I'm just weighing up whether or not to buy a black 1.6 147 Lusso (with full red leather seats)
I rang my insurance and they wanted an extra 500 quid - on top of the already 1,200 premium! (i'm 21, with 2 years nc - although had a smash around 3 years ago)
after stumbling across this forum, and getting a quote of just 800 quid from swiftcover, my mind may be made up!
I can deal with the extra fuel and tax funding as i dont do much driving apart from to and from work anyway. with the insurance at 800 quid, and the car itself well within my budget... i'm now very tempted
Thanks to the above posters!
