*** Help Me Please, I want to buy a 172 ***

  Mk4 MX-5, Smart 451

i want to buy a brand new 172, think i can get one for £12000 - £13000, insurance would be:

i am 21, 2 years ncb, 3 points (SP30), quotes around £1500 - £2000. Say £150 a month for example.

I was wondering if any of you could shed some light on what i am likely to be paying monthly for the car if i bought it on finance?

Many thanks in advance,

Thought for a minute that you might be that Gareth Gates from Pop Idol as he is a bit camp! Hes not 21 though so it cant be him!

Mine was £12900 from Renault (demo car with 60 miles on!!) I pay around £270 month for the car.....worth it though!!!
Hope that helps???

okay mate help me out, how much do you think i should be asking for my car? is a 1.2 MTV, X 2000, 31,000, excellent condition (Pics and spec in the others gallery, not including the ICE).


I pay 260 a month for car and another 61 for insurance, and as said above well worth it. Just wish I had more time to drive the little beauty.

No, but often people without the internet ask me to look for cars for them and it is very quick to search, copy and paste details!
