    Ok looking at options for next summer (although i will prob change my mind 10 times by then )

    for no more than the £12.5k mark would you buy one of these?

    mk4 GSI - Prob be around £9k for a good one by next summer

    mk4 Convertible - prob be around the £10k mark for a 1.8 16v
    or a little more for a turbo

    mk5 SRI 1.8 16V - Can get these for £12.5k brand new from the
    car broker site i seen with the EXC pack

    Has to be the diesel Mk5 SRi.

    Pauper-spec 1.4 Mk5s were going for the same price as I got my 52-plate diesel SXi. about 4 months ago. Was nearly going to buy one, but there was bugger all spec on them, and I wasn't sure if I could cope with a car with a sewing machine under the bonnet (coming from a 1.2 Corsa).

    When's the new MK5 coupe/ convertiable comming out? You might be able to get the MK4 convertiable cheaper by then as the price would have taken a hit already

    1.8 is still the manky old Z18XE. Would be worth waiting until next year for the new fancy 140hp 1.8 from the Zaffy which should be making it's way to the Astra.
