    Nissan Skyline R32 GTR, or a newer, but less powerful single turbo R33 GTS.
    Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo
    Nissan S14 200SX
    Mitsubishi GTO
    Ford Sierra RS Cosworth
    Astra GSi (MK3 with LET)
    ...just a few to be thinking of.

    Thats what I was going to suggest, one car i've always had a soft spot for.

    Could also probably get an astra coupe turbo for that money or an early leon cupra/octavia rs. Just depends what your after really, plenty of scoobies about at that price too.. if thats your bag.

    I'm not all that phased by them, good fun cars, but they are so bland.

    well i'm looking for something with a little poke. something jap would be nice but i think the insurance company wouldn't like a skyline, i must admit tho i didn't contemplate the single turbo.

    They are not the most pretty car out (especially the back!) and I know the inside is drab, but 200 ponies through the correct wheels and good reliability for a cheap price is always going to score highly with me.

    I'm paying £500 fully comp on my 300ZX TT, not bad for a car with just under 350bhp. (just under 300 as standard)

    (mine's lightly tuned, although going in for remapping soon, should see just over 350bhp)
