Need a fun car for £10k - any suggestions?

My Ford Puma has finally bitten the dust after 12 years reliable service. I now need to buy a replacement, with £10,000 to spend. What do you recommend as a fun car for this money?

Asked on by

For fun: an old shape Ford Fiesta 2.0ST (a lot less than £10,000). Less performance, better handling and a lot like a Puma 1.4: a Mazda 2 1.3TS2. You might even find a Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost 125 for your money. Suzuki Swifts are good too.
