    Default Help me decide......

    Right, i was all set to spend nearly £1000 on a set of pukka 19's,i have the cash here waiting for them and was ready to order

    Then......

    A very good friend of my Brother's is a Superchips agent, and has offered to re-map the car and give me full back up should any problems arise for half the normal price(I am looking at paying less than £300!) But before that i will have to get the Exhaust sorted and De-catt'd at MIJ, which is another £325.

    Which means, i cannot have both! I have always said i would have Power over looks, but now i am in a position where i have to decide, i cant make my mind up! I really had my heart set on the wheels, but i know i would probably enjoy the re-map more in the long run.

    He reckon's i'll be looking at 20-25bhp and anywhere between 40-55lb/ft increase after the re-map(its a 2.2 DTi dont forget). Only problem is the reliability of the car once its been done!


    Help!!!

    from your signature pic it looks like you've managed to find vaxhaull sri wheels in 19" so no need to bother with the wheels.

    get the remap, exhaust and a full suspension setup (unless you've already got that covered)

    Go for the wheels, You can always sell them later if you change your mind. You can't sell on a re-map with out the car. Is it worth £600ish for 25bhb and 50ish lb/ft.

    You could go for the wheels and stick on a caterman box for £63.

    Suspension is sorted and proper low at the moment Harry, so no worries there. I am in a real moral dilemma at the moment, i dont know what to do!

    I d go for more power, you have the back up if anything goes wrong which is good .spend the £600 on power and save the £400 and wait till you get some more money then get your alloys . What alloys are they???
