Car for my son

When I saw the title of this thread I thought that if he's good at DIY, gardening and car maintenance/cleaning that might not be a bad deal....depending in the value of the car of course!!! :)
 
Much easier these days just to keep an image of that V5 in your phone.
On the other hand, casual theft car break-ins "these days" seem less frequent than the past, when scrotes were constantly nicking car radios, loose change and clothes. These days they just nick the whole Land Rover Discovery Sporghhhtt-ah off your drive.
 
Alfa Giulia Quads are being stolen wholesale from drives at the moment too....using the same method as Land Rover stuff....via the front radar. CCTV show cars going within a minute of plugging in the villains tool.

My daughter has insured her little car 3rd party only. As she said “who’s going to pinch an old Polo and when did you last see a car on fire??”
 
.....and who is going to steal it when its on fire anyway!!??
 
Good point. It's three years since I watched a bloke trying to put out a petrol fire on an F40 with a garden hose.
(NO ! you must NEVER use water on a petrol fire - you'll short the electrics and spread burning fuel)

Our daughter tried third party only, as well as TPF&T but both of them were more expensive than fully comp. 🤷‍♂️🤔
 
I've heard that a few times recently.....especially with very young/inexperienced drivers....
 
MOT yesterday and it passed with no advisories - Phew ;) Dads record remains un blemished. So far !
 
My 18 year old nephew just bought himself a 66 plate Fiesta. 25,000 on the clock and £1900 for the insurance.

Car was £6250 which I think is rather a lot to spend on your first vehicle at such a young age.
 
My first car was £500....and about £80 to insure TPFT!!....that was in 1985 though!!

Each to their own.
 
Good for them. If you can afford it, go for it.
