    10k - What Car

    I'm looking now but won't be buying for another year (the wife wants her bigger house first!). I will have upto 10k and want something less than 3 years old and no more than 20k miles but I want fast and sporty with some practicality. I'd love an RX8 but am also looking at Focus ST, Leon TFr, Octavia VRS. Anyone else own one of these? Can you recommend anything else? I love the Golf GTi but a little out of my price range.

    Or you could do the auto trader bit and shove the rest in an ISA or high interest savings account.

    Or maybe give me the rest lol * wishful thinking going out the window *

    Not a prob. Spend 5k on a car. Buy the jet ski. Park it in the drive. When the misses asks...

    "It came free with the car, it was a good deal, no?"

    As she walks out with her suitcase, I could of course go one better and buy a car and a fast bike but then I definately would be divorced
