Don't give up in diesel I've just bought 07 plate Mondeo ST TDCi for the kind of money your talking about.
155Bhp and enough torgue to pull up trees. In fact mid range is fantastic.
Well quipped and economy is good I'm currently getting 40 round town. Only had it a week so can't comment on long journeys.
Ain't too many of them around either.
There is also the ST220 (petrol), drinks petrol and goes well.

No, no, no - you need to be selfish. You need one of these.
Plus you get £600 left over to spend on beer and pizza and buy your wife a handbag from the local market and tell her to live with it.

Build yourself a VTEC type r mini. That's where my next 10k is going.
couple of hundred horse power out of a slipper. Put a roll cage in it too.

Right fellow geekers I now have my dosh in place (upto £12k) what should I buy?
Something less that 3 years old with a max of 20k miles, needs to have a bit of go.

I know you said less than 3 years old but you could get yourself an E46 M3 for that money.. also look into Evo VIII or VII's they have plenty of poke and fit that budget.

Not that I like M3's or anything but the above are my two shortlisters for my next car.

Definitely don't knock diesel until you have tried a "quick" one. I have a new Seat Leon FR 2.0 TDI with an ABT remap on. It's very very quick for what it is. Running at about 210BHP and very practical as well, giving me about 45 mpg even whilst thrashing it.

Get a MK5 golf she be some around for 12k milage may be alittle over 20,000 but there reliable anyways either that or a 1 series BMW.

Don't put mush stock in low mileage nearly new cars.
Get a Mk1 Seat Leon Cupra R and spent the change on a remap and a nice holiday cruise or something.

Alfa Romeo 147 of some sort?

Buy two Toyota Yaris's 1.5 turbo's and use them as the fastest rollerskates on earth.

A colleague has got the RX8, apparently it drinks oil and this is standard on these cars. I think he has to top it up every 2 months.

Standard on all Rotary engines, is how they are designed. They burn petrol and oil

No ones posted the most obvious of cars, however it may not be ideal as you want more than two seats I guess?
Honda S2000 there are others like a Seat Leon Cupra 1.8T 196BHP. BMW 320's 325's are nice as well. The new 325CL is stunning.

You'll need another 10k to insure something like that!
