What's a nice Bold Extended font? I am struggling!!!

Hi there,

I have been looking for a nice bold extended font for a couple of weeks now and have had no luck at all. I might have to start looking at editing a font after I have converted it to outlines.

Attached is a sample of eurostile which I like to get some comments on: Is the Characters, kerning etc all in order?

And the second sample is me squashing forza which I like (will need adjustment if I was to buy it).

The "MA" combination is the weak link here. Since those two letters repel each other so much, I would spread out the other letters so the "MA" gap isn't as pronounced.

Here are some of my favorite bold extended fonts:

(al the "Sumo" weights)
