OK, looking for suggestions here... I drive a Toyota Celica 190 that is just coming up to 3 years old. I love a lot of things about this car - the looks, the performance, the handling and the comparatively low running costs (it averages 30mpg) - it's also pretty practical for a coupe. However, I have come to the conclusion that it has to go, for one main reason - the noise it makes is extremely tiring on long motorway journeys. A combination of very little soundproofing and a low top gear results in 80 mph being a fight between the engine, tyre and wind noise and the stereo, and I've finally got fed up with it. My old Mazda 323F was quite relaxing on motorways - the Celica definitely isn't, and I'm getting too old for it! So, if I'm looking for a new car at £20-25k, what should I go for? I'd like something that performs as well as the Celica, with similar fuel consumption and running costs, but with more comfort and less noise. Reliability is important to me, so I would prefer something Japanese or German. I've been thinking about the new Golf GTI or the BMW 130i, but neither of them really excites me. Any suggestions?
