well, ill tell you.im 19 so theres not much difference in price or age. I pay $330 for full coverage. but I have a ticket. that means I pay $708 a month just on my car, and that doesn't include gas! also I had to go to an insurance broker to get this rate. everywhere else it was $430-$450.

Since you have no tickets. full coverage will be from $270-350 no full coverage probably $150

There's a reason why insurance is high on GT's for 16 year olds. I know you can get in trouble in any car coz the problem is the driver not the car. But that's intentional trouble. The unintentional ones that catches you unaware and most likely will hurt you, your car, and others that you want to avoid.

Unless you go to some serious defensive AND high performance driving school, if I'm your father, I would start you off with an old sporty 4 or 6 banger that you can get rid of easily then move on to bigger ones.

I didn't like that idea myself when I was young but not that I am over 35 years old, I'm glad I took that route. Very glad indeed!

Oh yeah, I had my own unwarranted spills with my stick shift V6 Firebird. If it were a 315 hp V8 Trans Am, I probably would be collecting lifetime disability early in life.

Even after all the driving experience I have. at 500 hp, I still catch myself sometimes using too much power where more lateral control is required instead.

I highly suggest you get an old BMW 3 series. I'll guarantee that it will keep you entertained much longer than you expect. If you don't mind driving a Miata's, that's a good one also. I've driven my friend's, and it was really fun. It really feels like being in a gokart or a big motorcycle.

Same thing applies with motorcycles. Been there, done that! Too much too soon almost sent me under a semi on the interstate.

Im 16 years old and bought my mustang last year. I am going to suggest buying the V6 in FULL CASH. Payments suck and you will get tired very quickly. I know its hard being the one in the V6 but really its not bad at all.

Insurance is what will really kick you butt if you dont watch it. My sisters insurance on her 07 V6 being 18 is around 1000 every 6 months. Full Coverage.

Mine is 800 every 6 months for an already paid for 08 V6. It does contain a rebuilt title which contributes toward that price. I paid 11,500 for my mustang and i love it. give it time and you will love the V6.

Heres a little info for ya if your being covered under your dads insurance which will probly happen cuz it will be a lil cheaper. If you were to get in a accident and hurt someone seriously ( but hopefully that doesnt happen) the people you hurt will own your parents because of a stupid decision by a young kid behind the wheel of a car with too much power. v6 will be just fine for you. Even a v6 RWD sports car will still be dangerous for a young kid.

I have all the cash set aside so it's not a big deal. I'm only looking for cars I can afford, lol. Thanks for the advice though every bit helps

Thanks for the welcome! I don't actually plan on getting the car until I'm AT LEAST 17 years old, waiting for MUCH more driving experience especially in my Dad's Audi (god knows how many horses he gets 0.0).

Yeah good point, I'd have to be extra careful.

I'll just bump this up one more time to see if anyone has anything else to say.

Also, I'd like to add that the price just dropped to $14k. :kooky::kooky::kooky:

in ur case a GT is not a good idea for a 16/17 year old
BUT u could be like me and my first car was 1970 Mustang with a VERY healthy 351W V8 but at the same time its only putting out 230HP to the wheels but enough TQ to through u sideways

but going to college in sacramento when i live about 25-30 miles away SUCKS!!! i had to fill up on gas Twice a week and it is a 21 gallon tank

after about a year i had too get a more reliable car and something better on gas, i mean sure i could have got a Bada$$ Audi or a VW golf but i went with my 06 V6 stang and i love it (i was also offered my brothers 01 GT which is putting out about 412HP to the wheels but i didnt and its a good thing there were some problems with it like he had to put a new clutch and some other things) but the nice thing is i got my V6 for a hell of a deal for $14,480 out the door and the car only had 13,000 miles on it
but u can find a nice V6 for a good deal and than u can mod it the way u like
and a GT is bad on gas unless u live 5 min away from school even then its high in the payments of insurance

just my two cents

2006 V6 tungsten gray
Performance= Upgraded headers, Dual GT500 Mufflers, GT swaybars front and back
Looks= Black billet grille, Tri-bar pony, Black out panel, 8" antenna, Sequential taillights, 2010 GT 19" rims, GT front bumper
Interior= Dash cover, 6.3" Jensen touchscreen, white ball shifter, Custom box for a 10" sub

1970 Mustang Coupe SOLD

I dont know you personally but you seem like a pretty mature kid, my first car when I was 16 was a Camaro with a 383 stroker that I built while I was in school and had 400 hp, and I also had a Jeep Wrangler 4.0 as a daily driver both are cars everyone told me not have. So Im not gonna tell you what you can and cant handle because it was never an issue for me the only difference is I paid for everything myself. I will tell you though I bought my 06 fully loaded GT with 2500 miles in 2008 for a 1000 miles less then what they are telling you. You have to get that price down. Also tell your parent parts for european cars are sooooo much more expensive then american cars. One more thing when I got my GT my insurance dropped a significant amount from what I was paying for my Infiniti. Let us know how it goes.

Go for it … just listening to the news in the background w/ the D-bags in Congress … get it while you can. I just took my 19 Suffolk U Sophomore to the Subaru dealer and bought a white 2011 STI ltd edition Impreza. Maybe he'll let me try it. Good luck kid!!! Almost forgot … he'll be working 3-4 days a week in Boston next semester for a little kick back to me.
