Ello and welcome to the mad hoose, a 1.2ltr corsa is a good starting place as they are cheap as chips to buy and run.

go 4 a 1.2 16v sxi. The insurance wouldn't be too bad and u get nice interior and alloys etc as standard. If you want cheaper insurance go for the 1.0 12v

standard 5 doors are ming imo but practical if you will have a lot of passengers

don't go for the 1.2 8v, you will regret it

i would say go for a 1.2 16v as they are relatively nippy and only grp 3 ins iirc?

also as a male member of the board i wish to inform you to get your baps out
only joking by the way unless you do actually wanna present them to us? no objections on my part!
