    its all down to personal preference aint it mate, you must have cars you like and dont like

    i might suggest a honda accord type R, theyre like shit off a stick, can get one for 10 grand or so, cost you a ****in packet in insurance though

    i'd get a Mitsi FTO, loads of styling out for them, and the GPX comes with a respectable 200bhp

    The best engine swap for the mk4 on a £'s/performance would be the 2litre turbo, mainly due to the fact that they build them with them in anyway!

    Get a 2litre turbo, 6 speed box, lsd, 4 or 6pot calipers and coilovers easily for 10grand and would have a very nifty car.
