What should I do?

I'm currently on my ADI part 2...
my insurance on my car runs out at the end of the month. My current car isn't going to be suitable for instructing (Skoda Octavia RS - thirsty and group 17 insurance).So the big questions are:
[list]Do I buy my new car now in anticipation of eventually passing my part 3 and becoming a fully fledged instructor or wait 'til I'm qualified :?: [/list:u][list]If I go for a new car should I get a brand new one or second hand :?: As regards to what car to go for, I've decided on either a second hand Fabia 1.9 TDI (ins grp 6) or a new Fabia 1.9 RS (diesel for thouse of you who dont know) (ins grp 9) or a Citroen C2 1.4 HDi (ins grp3).[/list:u][list]Should I go for a ADI type insurance policy at the end of the month or just renew it as normal and then ammend/change once I qualify :?: [/list:u][list]Just to confuse the above point, my existing policy runs out at the end of the month - I'll be 25 in the middle of June, so should I wait til then before changing it over as they say the cost drops when you get to 25 :?:  (got full ncb's and a clean licence)[/list:u]
So many decisions!  :?  :!:

any help/advice would be greatly appriciated!

Re: What should I do?

Hi Matt,

If you're not sure about buying and don't want to lock into a long lease then you could hire one of my spare cars. At the moment I've got 3 Fiestas - 1.4 LX, '53' Reg, sitting around looking rather bored with not being used sad

£99 per week all in, open contract with one months notice.

If I can help let me know.

Regards,

Re: What should I do?

Too right it is! and better terms and conditions than any other hire company as well.

Any takers?

Re: What should I do?

Hi

I went to Robinsons in Leicester for my first car. I took a seven month lease and it was reasonable. £ 373 for peugeot 206. weigh up the pro's and con's.

7 months will proberly serve you well, without you getting bankupt!!!

Good offer from bigred if you are local.

All the best

Re: What should I do?

Hi,

Duh! :?  of course £373 is per month.

Did that include insurance and what sort of mileage allowance did it include?

I know the folk from Robinsons, they're a great bunch and I got several cars from them over the years. Still use them occasionally.

The 7 months might not sond too long but I had 1 car I needed to return after 3 and it cost me dear :cry:

As far as I'm aware, the hire charge from Robinson's, doesn't include insurance.

Re: What should I do?

HI Liesa,

Actually that price was all in, insurance the lot!!!

Only down side is getting to Leicester to collect and then if you don't renew or buy from them, return the car!!!

Re: What should I do?

Perhaps so - but I hate idle cars they cost me too much!

Besides I enjoy a good run up country some days.
