Need to get a runaround car to last me at least a year or so, gonna have about ?1k maybe a bit more for the right car..

Could anyone suggest something, i've gone blank as to what would still be a nice, respectable car for a grand!

Cheers guys..

Oxford - Whereabouts are you? That 2nd one does look nice, classy looking car still!

Was thinking something a bit newer may be better, less chance of expensive repairs n all that..

I like in Cambridge at the moment, but grew up in oxford.

I know what you mean about getting something newer, but the Mk2 is a classic and still cuts the mustard IMO [:)]

Mk2 would be nice but age could be a problem for everyday. What about an early Mk3 (about L reg 1994)?

What about a pug 306gti type about the best handling for hot hatch and good power?

Mk2 Gti everytime![:D] I did and I use it everyday with no problems whatsover, pukka reliable car, and beets the saxo plebs too[;)][:eek:)]

I'd stick to the 8v for reduced costs, a grand should buy you a goodun, far better to drive than a mk3 imho[;)]

Mine cost 400 quid with 160k and half a dozen owners, masses of history to, simply can't fault it.

Agreed, I bought a 92 'coupe' [:D] for our lass for ?500 just over a year ago. Serviced it myself when bought it, took radiator out and flushed cooling system out, cost ?30 in total for parts from GSF. Then did a 650 mile round trip to cornwall and it never batted an eyelid. They're solid aswell, sailed through MOT in december

Decent little cars that cost nothing to run, fix and insure.
