I'm considering getting myself a second car to reduce the mileage I put on my beloved Evo 8. I want to spend less than £1k and want something that can drive on the motorway at 80mph without falling to bits and not cost me a fortune to maintain - However the vehicle has to have a bit of quirkiness about it and maybe be a little bit sexy.

So far I've considered:

Honda CRX
205 1.6 GTI

I've looked at a couple and they've been total sheds, am I being unrealistic or am I yet to look at the right car (make/model)????

Cheers.

Having bought one for just over a grand, I would recommend a 106XSi :smthumbup

Good fun to drive, reasonably quick (0-60 in 8.5secs), running costs (37mpg) and parts are very cheap. Only downside if you are doing a lot of mway miles is the short gearing - 80mph in top is 4500rpm! So I just stick to 70 :D
