    2nd hand car advice

    Well folks - need to know best car in the large family range - its for my bro who's trading in his company car to buy his own subsidised of course.
    He's been lookin at a S60 (although thinks its too much of an old mans car! lol) a 9-3, 9-5, etc I've been thinkin of a Veccy C as I saw an 04 plater for 6.5k.

    Just want ur opinions guys on what u would go for...and which engine/spec.

    Budget it about 13k and couple of yrs old (although age isnt a massive problem)

    Any advice & comments would be greatly appreciated.

    At the moment my money would go with a nearly new Veccy 1.9 CDTi 150.

    Yeah as sten said, 11k will get you a mint, nearly new car, 200 quid will put you up to nearly 200bhp, or 500 quid will get you there and keep the warranty via vxr centre.

    I'm still really happy with mine after nearly a year.
