    Looks ok to me mate, my first car was a 1.0 L Metro. Yours looks positively luxurious compared to that!

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Very tidy for an S reg and as others have said, a damn good little car for a first car

    If you can afford it put the Veccy B SRi springs and wheels on it and it will feel like a totally different car.

    looks good to me!... mine was a a 1974 mini 850cc in rust! then onto a fiat 128, 1100cc, wow the power! insurance then was around £200 3rd party.
    So thats a good start... we all have to start somewhere... i really should hide my history... but its better after that to a cavileir 2L GLSi, now that shifted, never looked back (didnt want too...LOL)

    Very nice first car. Mine was a 1985 'B' reg 1.6 cavalier £500 to buy and over a grand to insure. That was because it had full body kit, janspeed 4-2-1 manifold and exhaust system, 15" alloys, Spax suspension kit, webber carb, Blydenstein 'B' pack head (gas flowed and ported). The best car I've ever owned (apart from the veccy of course)
