Right, so, i'm 18. Wanting a BMW 3 Series. Either the 316 or the 318, some really nice ones out there, on autotrader etc. Will i get insured on this? and is it gonna fall apart on me or anything? I would buy probably a 1996 onwards one, with less than 80,000 miles on it. Cheers for any help in advance.

Sure, you'll get insured (may cost a bit more than for other vehicles, but the security features actually balance that out somewhat). No, it won't fall apart on you. Expect needing to be reacy to spend money if need arises. Great cars overall, though. Hope you join the club. Welcome to the forums.

a M3 would get him double the insurance, but not a 325i it will be more but nothing drastic.

Just put the insurance under a parents name and put one of theirs under yours that's what my parents did for me.
