    There's a reason young drivers/riders are more likely to drive dangerously. At that young age you don't have an accurate understanding of risk, danger and consequence. When you see a middle aged bloke ragging around dangerously it just means they have small baby brain :)

    Takes the piss when diesel vauxhalls or 1.0 fiestas try race me constantly just cause of the car i have. When they're up my arse all i do is slam on my breaks, watch them in the rear view mirror panic, then floor it away into the distance to make the point their car and driving is shit. Cant be only me who does this surely? 👀

      @Jack Rigby I should point out i do slow down to a crawl before i do it and make sure no one else is behind them, just to see if they back off but if not then they deserve it. Works a treat usually. If i need to actually brake for an emergency and they rear end me i waint be happy so i do it as a warning to them but i get some people wont agree with doing it mate, each to their own 👍 its just my number one hate when im driving 😂

    Turbo diesel torque and auto gear boxes. Thats one of the reasons why people make overtaking difficult these days. Before, it was about gear changes, power band and road knowledge. now you just mash the throttle, so any tool can be a tool.

    The 16 year old should get a Diesel Range Rover P38 as a 1st car, cheap, learn the world by working on it and also a kind of lifted estate I guess. Not the most reliable mind....... nor simplest to work on. Sure Jack will agree with getting one after him mentioning his dad having one previously, then again maybe not.

    The biggest problem with overtaking these days is so many goody two shoes have dashcams that then report you. I haven't before because I can see one. On one occasion my mate got a fine for being reported once from a dash cam.

    Alex, listen to Jack's advies and get a B5 Audi A4 or a B5 VW Passat (they're basically the same). Super reliable, easy to work on if you follow the workshop manual (which you can buy from VW for 8 quid), perfect first car!

    Some motorcyclists are absolute maniacs. A few years back, a friend had one try to overtake traffic waiting to turn right, that bike ended up embedded in the driver's door of a very rare Tommi Makinen Evo VI and the rider got a free trip in a helicopter. Fortunately he lived to see another day.

    Re the people trying to race you all the time. I find that in my current vehicle mk3 focus rs, I was always saying to my wife when I got in from being out in the car. She would be like yeh yeh whatever I dont think they are trying to race you. She took my car one day to go to the shops and came back saying I've had loads of people trying to race me🤣🤣 The young guy should buy a volvo 240 estate 2.0 red block, get it on classic insurance and then when he has a few years ncb whack a turbo on it.

    May i just add that it's not all old people driving well below the 60mph limit - or doing the same 40mph in a 30 limit. As an example, i'm 60 and ALWAYS drive at the top-end of any limit. I also overtake whenever appropriate/sensible to do so. I blame much of the slow driving that is now common place on people fiddling with gadgets and not paying attention to the road ahead. Many of these drivers are in their 20's or 30's, but not all by any means.

    As a bit of a left-field suggestion for young Alex looking for a first car, I submit the Nissan Note N-Tec+ from around 2012. It’s not an estate, and it’s far from cool, but the mini MPV/hatchback has plenty of room for five people and a decent boot, plus you get metallic paint, two colour alloys and tinted rear windows, which are ingredients are a cool car might have! They’re common and the main demographic seems to be older drivers, so it should insure cheaply enough. There’s plenty of engine options and other features, so I’d have to assume it won’t be too hard to work on or get parts for... Lots of scope for upgrades too! Failing that, fall back on CT Alex’s default suggestion - get a Celica ;)
