    reliable as its for commuting
    Decent handling

    Shes not a racer etc Its for going to work in, its going to be mostly swindon to liverpool!

    Vauxhall Tigra (new shape)

    No budget set, it needs to be as fast or faster than a civic type r (200ish bhp i think)

    Im now thinking to fool her with a cooper s :p:

    A3 seems a good idea, can get the S3 version

    Ahh your sister knows nothing!
    Hehe, I love Bentleys.
    How about the Honda s2000, much better than a boxster.

    In that case:

    Mercedes Benz - CLK / SLK ranges

    Porsche Carrera / Cayman / Cayenne (my personal fave - my dad has one )

    VW Passat (3.6 / new 08 reg)

    Range Rover sport

    Shame she doesnt like BMW's. BMW X5 would be my choice
