    I like the type-r but they don't do a five door.

    Watch out for the fuel economy of the RX8 - combined is about 25 MPG!

    I realise the old rotary engine isn't very economical and uses quite a bit of oil but it revs to 9000 and looks awesome.

    Can I make a suggestion out of left field here.

    A VW Pheaton - not the fastest but a £60k luxury car that can be picked up for about £12k at the moment. Give it a year and you may get one for £10k. You'll feel like pimp in one of those!

    not sure if these are available as five doors but a vauxhall astra vxr and renault megane 225 take some beating! should be able to them for about £10k with less than 20k on the clock and less than three years old

    Love the looks of the Astra and 240 BHP a bonus but afraid they only do a 3 door version, don't like the Megane that much.

    You could get a Porsche Boxter? Very quick and fast cars! Handle very well! Should be able to get one for around 10k possibly less! My dad sold his for 6k a couple of months ago.

    What about a Subaru Impreza STi? Should be able to get a 3 year old example for about £10k and it's a good bit faster than any of the other cars you've mentioned. Running costs could be pricey tho!

    If you wait / haggle a little, you should be able to get a 3 year old BMW 1 Series, 2L for about £10,000....

    Focus Zetec 2.0, just watch the gearboxes, they can be a bit dodgy.

    Or how about this?
