You will get a nice car, just make sure it's correctly modded with all the right bits on at them power levels including the 2.5

bustamoves thats the problem,finding one thats been done properly from start to end...il give you an example...someone had a forged 2.1 blob from finch motorsport (perfect) 2000 miles ran in they then fitted a turbo and bolt ons an they went along and drove it without mapping etc,,air filter,turbo etc without mapping...i understand its got to be done in stages but does that mean the 2.1 build is compromised?? probably not but i dont mind paying 20 grand plus for a build done properly not a forged build then bolted on bits afterwards without a remap which im finding

For that budget you should get a well done one, just needs to be from someone respectable, agree putting them bolts ons definitely need a map same time as adding.
I'd consider hawk spec c's etc also or in them territory's, not sure if a Jdm hatch is in your top end budget either

Or buy a respectable car and do the mods yourself then at least you know it's all spot on

that white 2012 saloon is great,ive read the build spec etc and its a right beauty but what puts me off is its still on the standard 2.5...now its running 370bhp and it will probably last for miles but if im forking out 22grand for it i dont want to even have the thought of dodgy headgaskets..get me?

how often does well sorted,mint,forged 500 bhp build come across on here...another option which ive been persuing more is buying a standard blob sti for around 8-9 grand and sending it down to engine tuner for a 2.1 stroker with a rotated gt30 which tbh is my preferred option... atleast i know then the engine is fresh..plus the blob sti cost and forged,rotated gt30 will come to around 22g but i know the engine is good...any 8-9 grand blobs msg me...if i came to sell in a years time i no that an 500bhp engine tuner built car will hold good value

It depends how desperate you are for one? Good things come to those who wait and are picky, but I haven't seen them pop up on a daily basis.
As said buy a 'respectable ' one and mod yourself
