    A volvo t5. You get a good one for under 1200. 240 bhp as standard stick a mbc on and they will give around 270 all day. Ohh and they will take high mileage no problem.

    Wouldnt pay that for a damaged A3 with no LED and an S3 badge on lol. But i do like the colour.
    My choices would be
    Lupo GTI
    Golf GTI mk2 16v
    Polo GTI
    I like all 3:)

    Lupo Gti is a cool car but getting one for £1500 you've got no chance, be lucky to get one for under £3k...

    For £1250 that looks a bargain, My friend bought a 1.9GTi as a project and was intending on turboing it.....He had all the turbo ready internals and was after the right turbo and then he decided to put it back together without the turbo and then managed to run it out of oil (Wired up some of the dash lights up wrong - Why the oil light didnt work) and ceesed it up. SCHOOL BOY! :keule:
