Always a fun thing to do! NOT! (well not in our family :p:)

Older sister wants to buy a car.
Has 10k to spend. Wants something within 5 years old, the newer the better, not fussed about brand new.
She wants a sporty/sleek car (in her words) but doesnt have a clue.
Engine size preferably 1.6 or 1.8 but 2.0 isnt the end of the world.
Doesnt like minis (told her to get one! )
3 or 5 door is fine but needs to have 5 seats.
She's been looking at Audi TT but I think they're ugly.

I dont actually know much about sporty looking cars in that shape/size/form and for that low prices so anyone got any ideas?
Thanks for any help!

Mazda RX8. The engine is maybe a bit to big, but its under budget:

EDIT: This one has a smaller engine, and is a lot cheaper. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2004-Mazda-RX-...lenotsupported

I would say they're 'sporty'.

Both the TT and the RX8 mentioned above are 4 seaters really, As are most 'coupe' style cars. Worth bearing in mind if you looking to shift 5 people.
