I hear you. The current Tiger is actually based at a 550m farm strip, so well used to that. I enjoy being able to get in almost anyway with an aircraft with that performance.
If you don't want to compromise on speed then, as the owner of a Mooney M20E, I'd recommend a Mooney M20E! Here's one that's within your budget: http://www.planecheck.com?ent=da&id=45669
Very interesting, thank you! I've always heard good things about them mainly over in the US.
