    Lightbulb Fun car for 2k

    A friend of mine wants to get himself a "fun, maybe a bit of a sporty" car for Ł2,000. He's not too concerned about age or mileage so I suggested a 205 GTI, MR2 or CR-X.

    Any other suggestions?

    honda crx v tec about a 'j' reg i reckon. watch out for clutch slip on them though. mine was so much fun! or a nissan 300zx twin turbo. had one of those too, they offer you 300bhp for about £2000 upwards now! A proper beast! probably the most hp you can buy for 2k!

    MX5 or Eunos. Not quite a pocket rocket but loads of fun.

    Clutch slip!! I had my CRX VTEC 3 yrs & never had clutch slip once. Even after i'd tuned it to 236bhp. Altho when i got it to 210bhp i fitted a Integra Type R uprated Helix clutch. Still, for the 2 yrs it had almost standard power i never had probs.

    I was a member of CRX-UK for a few & went to loads of meets & track days yrs & i've never heard of clutch slip being a common prob.

    Most reliable car i've ever had, JUST!! My FTO only let me down once in 2yrs & it was just fuel pump relay. Infact i've never had much probs with any of the Jap cars i've had.

    Touch wood the Evo will be as reliable

    If i was spending Ł2k on a fun car it'd def be the CRX. Ok so it's not as fast as an MR2 turbo which are cheap as chips but at least you don't have to worry about the CRXs back end sliding all over the place when the roads see a hint of rain/grease on them

    CRXs are just so funto drive & the VTEC sounds even more awesome with a couple of breathing mods
