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!

Jonathan Clewer

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.

Si­mon Lane

Luke Ben­son My Ford Cougar 2.5 V6 man­ual cost me £250 and a ba­sic valet. Loads of power, cheap in­sur­ance.

Wor­thy De­tail­ing

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!
