    Whens Enough enough ??

    When you're modding your car, i guess this is aimed at the more in depth modifications, where do you draw the line ??

    I'm having a banking weekend and adding up whats been spent and what needs settling to finish my car. The figures are quite scary tbh. Where do you draw the line ??

    If i settle everything on the list, then I am about 95% finished from my perfect VXR vision. Now do i push for the last 5% and the extra cash or settle for 95% and leave something for next years shows ??

    The problem is you could buy a GSI for what i have spent, and modded it too Its all alittle out of hand but i feel as if i owe it to the Mk5 as i never really finished the Mk4 properly........

    Yeah i can see why you need to justify it, but you should be able to recoup most of the money if and wen you sell the car, just by selling the additional parts you have bought.

    You know the voice inside your head is right

    Finish it - don't drop into that endless group of people who start a project and don't see it through.

    AOC/AS has a growing list of those folks who have pushed their car/project (and patience) to extremes and look at the fantastic results!! You will be pissed off if you don't finish another one. You can't take the money with you either.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    Weigh up if you'll regret it cos u wont be able to recoup what you've spent.

    Some people dont earn in a year what a GSI is worth so they will say that maybe its not worth it, some who earn loads will say go for it 100%

    I say, follow what "YOU" want ... weigh up the pros and cons (is the 5% worth the extra £££) then decide
