    The £2,500 question

    I've just taken a deposit on my Leon Cupra R, so what to get next? I'm currently buying a house and need a bit of spare cash, so looking for around the 2.5k mark.

    The car doesn't really need to be cheap to run.
    Sporty looking.
    No Saxos or 106's, i've got a gti lined up for the track.

    I've thought about a 306 HDI 3dr in moonstone but what else am i missing?

    I'd only have a 306 in a 3dr, sorry.

    Astra sri would be good but isn't the tax going to be expensive on a 2.2?
