Enjoy your search, if you can stretch to a 270 sigma you can easily and cheaply get to 310 spec later. It will have a better 5 speed Mazda gearbox. View lots, drive many, whatever you get you will love it.

Could try the graduates website. Not that I can get it to work today lol. They have good priced sigma cars on there usually. If you don’t mind doing a bit of tidying that is

not sure what a 'not massive' budget is but at a rough guess it would probably rule out most of the more modern sigma and duratec cars. If I were you I'd look at an ex acadmey racer or an older K Series car. Plenty of older K series cars with low mileage around that are just as good as the more modern Ford cars

Maybe a decent crossflow?  Not under your remit of modern engine, but characterful and likely in your price bracket

There are a number of 7ers in Leeds and around. In normal times, you would have been welcome to drop by to the monthly meet and get to know some of the options better. There is a Whatsapp group - if you message the AR Adrian, he can add you on to it.
