    the n/a starlets are fairly reliable. Which I expect is what you're looking at? Seen as you'd be lucky to insure a turbo! I know a mate thats 18 with a starlet turbo, pays 3k insurance and the car is worth about 1.5k.

    thx 4 the welcome

    everyone :Smile:

    @ james rowe

    nope not a n/a was looking at a glanza tbh the insurance at 17 would be just over 2k

    What? i got a quote on a glanza when i was 17 for
  18. rooh010 Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    id go for the Civic much more reliable and as ppl have said looks nicer

    insurance is affected by postcode etc too meby why ppl are getting lower quotes.. all depends on your circumstances.. but i doubt you will get insurance on the glanza at 17 due to the turbo.. even if you do it will be through the roof
  19. saqib Senior Member ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    lool donno about a final choice yet ;P

    yh thats true all the quotes i've seen for a glanza have been into the thousands and also parts are meant to be rare to find for starlet where as Civic there widely available
