Which four-seater coupe would you recommend?

I'm after a used 'premium' coupe with a bit of 'oomph'. My budget is £15k. It must have four seats and be petrol-engined. Obvious choices are BMW 3 Series Coupe (very common), A5, C-Class coupe, but is there anything else you'd add to my shortlist?

Yes, an E92 330i or 335i would be my choice: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/bmw/bmw-3-series-e.../ A5 coupes are nice but the 2.0 litre petrol engines have had problems: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/audi/audi-a5-and-s.../ An oddball choice is a (rare) Renault Laguna coupe, tested here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/renault/renault-la.../
Or a Peugeot 407 coupe, tested here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/peugeot/peugeot-40.../ Check them all out for faults in www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar
