    Ah im going mad with cars

    I really am in a pickle

    Got a good condition V reg 2.0Sri at present had it since July 06, ive added alloys headlights and a few other nominal items.
    I 'feel' i have become bored with the car and need a change have been looking at Vectra Sri's and even Clio Sports.

    My astra is even up for sale at the moment but not had an ounce of firm interest. But im beggining to think do i really need to swop my car, what ever option i go for im going to have to outlay another 2-3k minimum for a piece of metal which transports me around for my job.

    I love my astra in parts but then other times i wish i had left it standard.
    I like the vectras Sri model and i always have but am i getting the urge for one all because i want a change.

    I know the answer off you folks is likely to be its totally your choice but i am really stuck.

    A car is MORE than a piece of metal! We all know that on here - thats why we all love cars so much! LOL

    Its like saying vincent van gough's painting "sunflowers" is just paint thrown onto canvas.

    If you dont like it, change it. Or, buy another cheap, but a quick runaround so you can swap cars when you feel like it.

    problem i face is i have 2.5k banked for which i am to spend on anything as i have other savings elsewhere.

    Part of me thinks get yourself a newer car gregg, then the other side of me thinks dont bother get some coilovers and other bits and bobs for the astra

    Although i know eventually i will end up having another car its just whether i bother now or leave it (till when i dont know)
