What car would you buy if you had this budget. Iv'e had a change in job recently and the evo is becoming to expensive to own.

I want something fun to drive quite quick and decent looking also isnt going to cost a fortune to maintain. Was thinking of a ek9 civic type r maybe a scoobie even anyone got any good ideas?

Audi S3 for comfort and linear power with all the toys. Or a Civic type R if you dont mind that stupid screaming Vtec.

I was going to buy one in about 2004. I test drove it and hated it and bought an Audi S3 instead:lol: The 1.8t in the VAG range gives 35-40mpg when sticking to the speed limits. The other option is to go for a Golf MKIV GT TDI, 180bhp after a remap and 60mpg.

im not a big fan of the look of a s3 dont mind golfs to much as much as a tdi is the sensible option for me at the moment i know i will hate it so im not even going to bother haha

Alfa 147Gta then:mhihi: mad ltlle car but they use as much oil as they do petrol:lol:. I bet you could buy an Astra vXR for that kind of money now? Maybe add a grand to the 7k but there a nice car. I'd rather have one than the new ST as the fuel economy is the same as an Evo:eek:

Maybe a golf GTI if your budget will stretch? Only a MK 5 though. Nice cars IMO.

I would have said Golf TSI but there too expensive :shake:
