I think the 2.2 is very competitvely priced - you get decent performance from the 2.2 (170bhp 6 cylinder [8D]) and it sounds great. A Boxster or SLK would be loads more for the equivalent year and the only real other option would be a TT - and this wipes the floor with the TT for driver appeal (apologies TT owners!)
We paid ?26k and it has;
M Sports leather seats
Carver Hifi (superb)
But it wouldnt even see which way my VX went in a race
