Other than being in the UK, chrysler/dodge daytona!

Cheap to buy, cheap to maintain, good on gas.

Plus you can toss your sub in place of the rear seats and use a 100W amp instead of putting in the trunk like most cars and require 1000W.

VW GTI
VW Jetta GLI

Don't know if these convert to European styles. Find one made in Germany with all German parts.

Stay away from the new 1.8T.

You guys watch Top Gear? A Brit TV show? We get it here on Discovery Channel. Love that show!

Your criteria is shouting for a Japmobile. Honda Civic, Mazda 323, Toyota Corolla, Mitsi Colt, Nissan Primera...

Jeremy has told you...if you're getting a car sub £1500, make it a Japanese!

I'd love to get the DVD. I've only caught a few episodes so far. Is there one available in the States?
