I normally tend to wait until I crash and then just buy a new car, I've never been in the position to sell something and buy an upgrade before so this is all very new to me.

Basically, got the fabia vrs atm, it's fun and really tempted to put a 400bhp 1.8T in it but that's 6k

someone pm'd me offering me 10k for my car. it's a lot less than whats been spent on it and i could get a lot more by breaking it up but meh cba

so 10k + 6k = 16k, could probably flog my crashed bike for 2.5k and a few other bits so lets say budget is 20k

that would need to pay the insurance too

keep looking at like 2008 S3's, stage2+ 360bhp, 4wd

dont want FWD really. dont want N/A. love petrol turbs.

cant be an evo or something that will cost a fortune to run and insure

need ideas plzz

That's a lot of money for your car, was it a serious offer and not a dreamer? If so, i would take it and get the money together, 20k can get you an awful lot of car. I wouldnt rush into what to buy as there's too many cars out there. Nearly into E92 m3 money there, or will be if you wait 6 months.

Depends how silly you're going to get with your new car. You could buy something daft like a 700bhp import R32 and have change for insurance, or you could buy a 300bhp Subaru and spend a fortune doing it up.

I doubt you would make 10k breaking it, would struggle to get 6k probably.

I'm sorry but it could be the best spec in the world and it's not worth 10k.

That's E46 M3 money....

How much a car is worth depends on who's assessing it, too many people on this forum who can't work out what an opinion means !



Nissan R33 GT-R Nice spec !!

I'd much prefer some mental spec car than a standard E46... you're honestly telling me a 4wd 500bhp fabia setup perfectly with 200k spent on it would not be worth 10k? you're so deluded lol

Take the offer before it gets turned down. I very much doubt you'll actually sell it for that but you never know!

2k on the engine... so where does the other 8k come from?!
