    Default Worth the upgrades?

    Really can't make my mind up whether to keep modding the car and is it really worth it? For example looking to get the rear bumper sprayed, difusser done too and fitted. Then dual exhausts which will end up around £500 mark no doubt, the car isnt are fast as I like to be fair although I do likes its looks. So do I do the mods and plan to keep the car for another 3 years or so, or maybe in 18months sell up and get myself an Audi A4 3.0tdi or even like some of those Mercedes C230 or 220 the newer shape seem quite appealing. Or even get something quick to do the track days that I'm quite interested in and running down places like Santa pod, trouble is at the moment I travel about 40miles a day and petrol is getting more expensive, although finances will be alot better in 18months.

    I could have written this!!

    I always think same, and think i could put the money into a higher spec car etc. I've also been debating a Mk4 Astravan for track days too...

    But me too, wifes on maternity and moneys going to be really tight for a year untill our eldest starts school. we'll be living off one wage as cant afford the child care for both...

    Sorry i've no answers but think i'm gonna keep with little or cheap mods for the foreseeable and she's going to get a new motor...

    I said this in another thread tho, buy time we've done all these bits etc, we could have bought a VXR and put the mod money into the extra running cost lol

    Very true, I looked at an Evo until I got told how often they need a service and to be fair trying to drive the thing off boost for economical runs just wouldn't happen. I think the car looks good but doesn't put that smile on your face like a bit of power does. I drove my mates VX220 and foot flat makes your eyes sink in the back of your skull. Miss my old MK4 astra Lee, even looked into the coupe turbo's.

    But how long before you start modding that?

    Thought the same thing when I got my gsi. I'll get it and that will be that. But if you've into mods then you just can't help it.
