A couple of general tips would be to avoid anything bigger than a 1.3, and some cars such as Corsa's ans Saxo's, as most insurers will see them as being very popular with young drivers so may push up the premiums.
Have you ever been so angry you threw a VCR at a burning bus?

The love between a man and his car can only be understood by those who have felt it.

I am having the same trouble. But, the best car I have found for me, is a 1.0 Toyota Starlet KP61, and that was about £1000. . But I think it is just a case of finding the right car for you, ringing up companies and trying to get a lower quote. Think that is all that you can do really :|.

I wouldn't advise going for a fiesta either. I was paying £3250 a year for a 2001 Fiesta 1.25 Freestyle 16v when I was 17, insurers just see younger drivers as deathtraps. Look for a car not many people would go for at your age, my friend had an old Diahatsu something, was cheap as hell!
