I use a Wilson 1000 mobile, they're excellent but a little more than your budget. A Sirio 4000 might be a good option within your price range.

Sirio 500 ( not the one with LEDS) i use a sirio 500 Fighter boot mount with sirio coax cable, the cable you are looking for is CAB-MC-4MT if possible dont use mag mount, use boot/gutter mount, with sirio cable, best SWR being 1.3 to 1.4, if you get SWR 1.1 to 1.2 it dosnt perform as good as 1.3 to 1.4, hope it helps you out,
all advice is good on here but it is your choice, aerial about £35 to £45, Cable £20, boot mount around £10

I used a 1/4 Wave 9 foot tank whip in the 80’s. I also have a new one now and it works fantastic.
