i would say either the 180 or the 115 diesel would be the best ones to look at.

the 115 diesel has a little less power, but alot more torque so is probably faster in real world situations. Also the diesel can be tuned to 130-140 for little cost.

the 180 is a seriously quick and fun car, but they do have weakness' like the VIS valves and clutches. Also like you said they drink fuel.

The 120 will handle a bit better than both diesel and V6 cars due to less weight under the bonnet. Try before you buy and enjoy the process. Your priorities for fuel economy will dictate which one you buy. As above, best bang for buck would be a tuned diesel. If you're not going to pile on the miles, V6 petrol costs will not be such a heavy hit although the higher tax and insurance cost are still there.
