Is that really important? Or anything to do with you?

Do you want the newest car you can get for that sort of money or the most powerful? Theres LOADS of choices. Any preference at all?

You'd probs get a 206 HDi for that, they're pretty nippy.

I just sold a £6500 car to go to Uni. Which i got at 18. How did i afford it? Worked my ass off during a year out. Everyone has their own story, most just have generous parents though.

Hence me suggesting the lower engine versions, still look like a sporty stylish car, and you can pick some bargains up now for below £2500.

Something like this http://atsearch.autotrader.co.uk/WWW...00631244804962

How about a 1.8 Golf. If you search around you should be able to get one around 65,000 for about your budget.
