    Default Help me spend some money!

    Long story short, i was left some money by my late father and being a car lover he would ensure i enjoyed some of it on my vehicle.. im sure lol,
    however im torn into two..

    do i simply spend 2000 (plus my signum) and get a new car (looking at A4 avant or mondeo st tdci) please dont shout at me

    or do i spend that kinda money on my signum...
    pic below

    what would you do?

    i was toying with getting the irmscher grill with the chrome strip but not sure if it would look right because the cars not got alot else irmscherish,
    has anyone got any pics of one fitted to give an idea?
    ive done virtually all the cheap mods, xenons, tints, calipers, bulbs, door pins etc so just after something to do really

    im not skilled enough to do the led conversion (but would pay someone)
    wheels are like a can of worms cause what to do with old ones, do i then need lowering etc etc
    double din unit would simply get robbed where i live

    what would you guys do in my situation,

    I would be looking at spending it on my Vec (Signum in your case). For that sort of money you have lots of options, remap, brake upgrade - I'd certainly have the irmscher grill. Strut brace? Could get better springs and shocks, or all of this.

    Jeeesus 20 inch wheels lol! i was thinking the vxr 18s haha,

    the only reason im thinking of trading in is that i do alot of mileage now, like 180 a day and im very quickly gunna make it worthless (only on 55k atm)

    what exactly is park pilot?
    and as for remap ive always fancied it but scared it will ruin the car, heard bad things on other cars about it and my insurance wouldnt like it very much lol
