Buying a luxury car for less than £7000

I've been rooting around trying to find a 'luxury' but affordable car. I thought I'd ask a pro as I am struggling with the scattered information on the internet!

I have also considered cars like the Ford Mondeo, BMW 3 seies, Volvo C70 and others. I had an insurance quote on the Lexus IS250 for £400.

I am after the most comfortable car with attractive interior under £7000 with running costs under ~£330 that I can get, can you recommend one or more for me please?

Very well built. Top quality interior. Lexus dealers are best in the business. Impressive refinement. All engines chain cam. IS250 probably the most reliable car you can buy.
