    How much do people spend on a first car?
    The best I can find in a dealership is a 2014 Micra for €9k with insurance coming at €2k

    Just go for an older model micra or yaris thats nct'd and taxed, easy enough to get one for about a grand. Of course depends on your budget.

    Is the Micra the best small Automatic? I know cheaper is better for your first car but I don’t want to buy a heap of scrap either

    Both the micra and yaris would be rock solid cars for starting off in. Really bulletproof, but I'd go for a manual, that would cover the automatic licence too, but not the other way around

    I’m aware of the licence restriction of an automatic but I’m not sure I can get the hang of a manual.
