I MIGHT be recieving around 2,500 soon. Im not going to say how, just wondering what peoples views on spending the money are. Should I sell my car and buy something more expensive or spend it making my car my own? Should I invest in premium bonds? (Skins viewers :rofl:)

id pay off your insurance and do some modification to your car

if you getting 2,500 in a lump sum, dont spunk it on your car, save it or put it towards something usefull.

cars are money pits,no matter how much you pile into it, a 106 is still a 106, therefore youl never see it again!

J Butler
20-02-2007, 11:04 PM
Very true, but then again you are only young once!

20-02-2007, 11:05 PM
yeah, I'd say invest all or most of it in something more solid than a 106 (i don't mean buy a cage for it or buy a tank)

Put it in the back for a bit, then reap the interest :grin:

or start on the property ladder perhaps? buy a conservatory :veryhappy:

WTF, you sound like a grandma. Even my dad said something car related. Conservatories?! pmsl.

J Butler

To be honest, my hobbie has always been cars, its a family thing. I think spending on track related items in preparing my car wouldnt be such a waste?

you should put a thousand away in the bank to save, a thousand pound is alot of money to have sitting there to grow...

then maybee spend a little on the car, and put the rest into conservatories:drool:

20-02-2007, 11:17 PM
I'll get the ball rolling... cams, management, throttle bodies etc

Or two Peugeot Sport drive shafts @ 850 each?

Get spending.

20-02-2007, 11:21 PM
invtes a good solid grand, give ur mum or dada the book or card....and ut well away

J Butler
20-02-2007, 11:21 PM
^^^ Thats more what I expected on a car website! Could TB the 8v, or go 16v, but wouldnt have as much to spend on it. Im crave that TB noise tho! First things first, I wont be getting it for a while and mean time im going to sort out the minor details.

Conservatory fund is so tempting!

invest it into serious organised crime

could also be a coke addict for 2 weeks.

go to london and sleep with either a) lots of cheap slutty whores or b) a couple high class ones

give it to me

or you could ermmmm oh yeah buy a conservatory hahaha

20-02-2007, 11:26 PM
I'd spend half of it and set the other half aside, that way you don't feel quite so guilty and it shows you have some sort of idea on 'saving' which old farts will appreciate.

20-02-2007, 11:26 PM
Woahhh hold your horses. You're not 16v yet? Get with the times ;) hehe

Those extra 8 valves are worth the erection factor.

I did wonder why you said camS! James106xsi has the idea. Big Jazzle I like it, but thats definately the sort of thing to do when im 25 and realise my life is going no where, all in good time.

Might get a quote lol. Could make for an interesting garage.

Big Jazzle
20-02-2007, 11:55 PM
dont say we told you so....
give me 2,500 and il build you one:lol:

not sure how satble it'l be like, but a shed would be one way to describe it hahaha

21-02-2007, 01:06 AM
See? conservatories for all :grin:

first step on the property ladder an all that... ;)

what I really think is 16v, Cams, Bodies, Fancy buckets and harnesses and cage.

then put the 3.76 left into the bank, sorted :veryhappy:

21-02-2007, 06:16 AM
You can't take your money with you when you pop ya clogs!!!

So get it spent.

Nice big piss up, maybe a weekend away with the missus and then the rest on mods and gadgets.

I had an email earlier from a chap in Sierra Leone. If you send him the money, he will be able to escape from his country (where he is under house arrest) and on arrival in Johannesburg will be able to get his hands on a fortune which he will share with you.

Sounds great doesn't it!

Id save it for a deposit on a house and to cover the legal fee's.

21-02-2007, 08:26 AM
You can't spend it when you're gone and if you don't spend it on some quality Rallye whorage then the people of the Rallye Register might just kill you...you have been warned! :heh:

21-02-2007, 08:36 AM
Pay off some debts?

And if you have none then save it.

Fuck spending it all on cars. Spend a bit maybe but get some put away to earn some interest.

Big Baz
21-02-2007, 05:42 PM
depends what you want to do with your car and what youve already done.

i got a grand the other month, saved half and spent half towards my bucket seats, nice little treat for the Rallye.

Dont blow it all on a car mate, save a little and spend a little.

Let the interest build up for a bit then spend that interest on your car.

21-02-2007, 05:56 PM
If you have any debts apart from intrest free student loans, pay those off first because it will benefit you more in the long run.

Dont spunk it on a car, if you are going to spunk it, go on a once in a lifetime holiday somewhere, youll take that experience with your for the rest of your life.

21-02-2007, 06:06 PM
I hope to haev a similar dilemma in a short while...

2 dilemmas actually, I have the capital growth from my last house released in a months time which will see me with 20K to invest sensibly and not spend on cars (I need it and more for my new house), but also a 3K penalty for pulling out of the mortgage eaarly which I will get back when I take out the next mortgage on teh new flat.

But I also may get some bonus money soon, may not, this is entirely speculative and based on nothing and it may only be a few hundred pounds (which i have worked far more than in overtime)... My grandad answer is that I need to buy some carpet for my new flat and probably other unseen costs but rallye whoreage is tempting and been waiting a very very ver very long time and I need some....

I have student loans too but nobody has noticed yet so I pay nothing... But they do accrue compound inflation so they do grow.

21-02-2007, 08:40 PM
like you said your only young once, ive lost thousands on cars but while i dont have any bills i will. you will have a house and grow up in time when young it all about going out agirls and cars lol!

22-02-2007, 01:55 PM
spend it on the rallye.
cage,buckets,tb's,brakes,suspension, then use any left to pay for loads of track time:)

Mike W
22-02-2007, 02:03 PM
Isn't your rallye for sale? If so, don't spend it on that.

I'd go for saving it tbh. But then I'm old and boring.

That chap in Sierra Leone does sound a bit desperate though :help:

J Butler
22-02-2007, 03:14 PM
My car is for sale, and ive decided that with the sale price combined with this money I could get a much better base. Besides I have student loans and maintenence to spend on said car!

22-02-2007, 03:18 PM
an S2 rallye?

J Butler
22-02-2007, 03:19 PM
Maybe freedo!!

22-02-2007, 03:39 PM
Spunk it on loads of laps of the nerdyburg. :steer:
and then waste the rest.

22-02-2007, 03:39 PM
a S2 isnt really an upgrade or a better base for track/rally car
