Get a pre an early 318 e46 (Not the N42 engine!!). It will be bulletproof, alot cheaper to buy than a derv, great fun on the twistys and economical (Ok, not as eco as a derv, but if its just short trips... why the hell would you pay the extra premium for a diesel anyway!?)

With your budget, you could get an absolute minter with low miles. Or perhaps a touring, which would be more practical too.

Its not the most potent E46 by a long shot, but, in the real world... all things considered, its a hell of a car. Hence, I am getting another in the near future :thumbsup
