    Up to 20k for a car - what would you get?

    May be coming into a quite substantial amount of money within the next year so planning on what to spend it on

    Looking for something up to 250ish BHP

    What would you get?

    Could pick up a 2006/7 2.7 Porsche Cayman possibly? 2007 3 series coupe? Do the sensible thing and get a 04 Clio Sport with a crap load of change?

    Or just get a brand spanking new VXR or Golf GTI?

    Opinions?

    Wouldn't buy a brand new car with the current climate, would be worth nothing after a few months.

    I'd go for something like a VXR8, guess it depends if the money keeps on coming to keep up the running costs

    If it was me i would buy a nice second hand merc which can be picked up for about 15k with some nice extras on them, also a get a diesel with a remap and you should be driving a very comfy car which is reasonable quick.
