    My brother is looking at getting a new car give us some pointers what you would buy??

    He has requested he wants something sporty with no more than 40,000 miles and no older than 4 years old.

    He has been looking a Mk5 R32 and Honda Civic type R.

    Any one got any ideas....

    Could almost get a new clio sport cup for that money, friend of mine just ordered a new one for around 14k, nice quick and fun motor, not the best build though!
    Otherwise could get a very good 8L S3 for that money ;-)

    I would rather buy one of these, then get it remapped than go for a Mk5 R32, unless V6 sound is important, less roadtax to pay and better residuals.

    A3 3.2 or R32 if you get a right age one the tax isn't an issue.

    RS6????
