    My little red baby has been nicked by my dad.

    My woman drives a big beautiful SUV but I'm not going nick her car.

    I'll be buying secondhand but I've got about 10-15,000 quid to spare.

    No French or Korean cars, no matter what.

    I need style, power and build quality with perhaps comfort as another factor. Fuel economy is not really necessary.

    I'm thinking about a :

    Mini Cooper S - had one, loved it but its a bit gay (very gay) and its not a convertible which I would love. Also a bit small but four seats are a plus with my kid.

    Honda S2000 - my dream car, but I might not be able to afford it. I'm not getting a MX-5 because that would be like settling for Penelope Cruz's cousin when a little more effort would get you Cruz.

    Subaru Impreza - one with a turbo. Comfort and the chav factor are an issue.

    Mazda RX-8 - might be a little too expensive.

    MX-5- No- Too gay/Girly
    Between the impreza and the S2000 if you ask me! Which is good as they are both Japanese meaning good build quality

    Wish i had that much to spend on a car >_<

    Cool but I'd need you to drive it for me as we roll through Compton like Snoop and Dre (except for being whitey weak-asses).

    Civic Type R... I've had a really hard on for these lately, similar spec to the Cooper S, but a bit meaner I reckon, for 13k you could pick up a pretty decent second hand one with low mileage.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about that as well. But they all seem to have belonged to insane chavs.

    Might be good to look in a large car superstore where you can get a cheap 2 year warranty or something.

    If you can stretch to 16.5/17.5k and haggle a bit, you might be able to get hold of an 56/07 newer style one, i doubt many boy racers will have owned any of them
