    D15 is slow. Get a B16A(2) or B18C4. They give you lots of fun per pound.

    As above, any B series is going to be a good option, and are relatively straight forward too as you can use your existing mounts IIRC.

    As for other options, they're really only limited by your bank balance. H22, K20, K24 etc are all possible, just more expensive and more work.

    For the price that B16's/B18c4's cost in the UK I would never mini-me a D15.
