Your bargain daily driver is?
I have a 2000 BMW E36 Compact. It’s covered 175,000 miles, has a full service history, drives like new and has loads of options including an electric fabric roof (£2000 back in the day). All this for £500!
I bought this 68k MG ZR for £550. It’s happily done 150 miles a week in traffic for the past two years.
Darren Smith 2001 Pug 306 HDI, bought for £400 14 months ago. It’s done 15k miles in that time and it’s cost me a clutch and a brake light switch. Grab one while they’re still affordable!
Land Rover Discovery 1 200TDI. It cost £300 to buy and zero fuel cost for 80k over five years as I ran it on used cooking oil.
Mazda 323F. 1999, 400 miles to a 45-quid tank, Cost to buy: one pint. Maintenance costs to date: two pints.
Luke Benson My Ford Cougar 2.5 V6 manual cost me £250 and a basic valet. Loads of power, cheap insurance.
Bought an Alfa Romeo 156 for £185, fitted a set of rear brake pads, topped up the levels and then drove it to Monza for the Italian F1 race. Epic adventure and not one beat was missed!
I’m moving back into bangernomics, as I’ve been paying dead money for my Ford C-max.
