  • Hello from the UK and advice on a second car

    Hi guys,

    I have been watching MCM for a few years now but only just joined the forum! I currently drive a 1.2 VW polo as a daily and have a modified 998cc classic mini as a weekend car.

    I'm 21 this year and looking to buy a car to replace the polo as a daily. I'm looking for something a bit more fun now that I can afford the insurance (as insurance is crazy for young drivers in the UK).
    ​​​​​​​
    I have a budget of about £5.5K (excluding insurance) and am interested in what people feel the best option is. I am currently looking at the MINI r56 and r53 JCW models. But was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions of cars with similar performance (1.8L or less for insurance).

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Welcome to the forums mate!

    First car that popped into my head was a JCW but I see you've already spotted that

    I say go for it! they're a hoot!
    I stripped my car out so much it now has 49/49 weight distribution.
