Hi and congrats on your arrival. Fantastic cars and you should get a K or L plate for that sort of money, but be very careful, lots of dogs out there with trashed interiors, and watch for ex taxi's or cars with starship mileage, I've seen one advertised in Autotrader in the last few months with 315K on the clock .
If you find a really good one without a trashed interior and less than 100K on the clocks be prepared to pay a lot of money for it £2-3K + (M or N plate) but buy it quick the good ones dont hang around.
Watch for electrics, A/C, gearbox, radiator and suspension, and dealer service history is gold.
Personal opinion (what its all about ) avoid the 2.2 petrol autos, 2.1TD or 2.0 petrol are the best.

Good luck.
