    Dilemma....

    dilemma.

    Got a few things on my mind and would welcome your thoughts.

    Finish M1GST (baring in mind the astra G is now dead)

    Buy a VX220 turbo (as thats what its going to cost if not more to finish M1GST)

    Buy an astra sports hatch (put in all parts and engine form M1gst)

    Neither and pay 30k of the mortgage?

    Come on give me some advice, what would you do?

    Do you want to come home to a nice house every day?

    Or do you want to get in a nice car every morning?

    If it's a car it depends on if you want a change? Are you bored of Astras and want something different, if so, get the VX220. If not get another Astra!

    regarding house: I have a nice house, I could have cause have a nicer one but then I am sure most people think that.

    Regarding Car: I have 2 cars (a run around and one for my girlfriend) I also have a van - so what I am saying is I dont need a car therefore M1GST is a toy, either way I would have a toy

    right although I said I wouldnt do this....

    its cost me to date (this phase) around 14k, I have around 12k in the bank, I need I think another 8-10k to finish to how I want it.

    These are not exagerations at all!

    Is it actually going to cost 30K to finish M1gst?

    Irt would be a shame to scap it after all this time but I can see where your coming from!

    I don't think I'd go for a vx220, I wouldn't want to loose all the money you spent on the Engine!

    So.........I'd say

    a) Can M1gst be finished for a reasonable cost if you sacrafice some bits
    b) Would you be happy with the engine in a sports hatch!
    c) Will you look back at this in a few days and think "To hell with it I've spent so much money already I might as well get it finished!!!"

    Mat, I think if your having doubts about finishing it then its not worth while imo. You will probably regret it is you do.

    If you want a cheaper project why dont you sell M1GST and buy a kit car. Still fun and a bit more unique.
    im bored !
