    Finance options for 13 year old banger 4th Jan 18 at 10:40 PM
    Hi everyone

    I own outright a 13 year old hatchback, middle of the 1.0l range
    Do you know what my finance options are or where I could go for a secured loan on it? I'd like to make a pension topup. I expect that because it depreciates slower than a new car it must be better security for what I do borrow

    Thank you in advance

    You're right staffs that its too little, but I'd be scared of bigger leverages, I respect the danger - and it seriously sways me away from buy to let since you can simply wait out an equities crash in a way you can't wait out a property one

    To me playing with small amounts is more for fun than serious work. This is all hypothetical and unlikely to happen

    I meant the borrowing against the car is the thing that is unlikely, not a depression
