New interior - half leather
New steering rack
New wheels - 8 x 15s
New brakes - 280mm with better calipers, bigger servo and bigger master cylinder
New engine- 2.0 16v
New suspension - coilovers
Maybe new paint
Rent a garage

Maybe buy something else, something white.

edit - might not bother with any of the first 7 points though

Don't know really. Monaro will depreciate, A4 convert is boring, CLKs are too expensive and I can't insure an XKR.

There's a Monaro in the trader, lost 16k in 14 months plus its done 26k miles so its also already cost the previous owner 10k in fuel. 26 grand to drive around for just over a year.

As my mate correctly pointed out, the next owner will laugh at me in the same away when he buys it off me for 8995 in two years.

Black Roof, New Headunit and a New Install.

Want to do the roof in black, not sure on either matt or gloss?
And not sure weather I should get the bonnet done aswell?
