    Are you ever really happy

    With the your car i mean.

    Picking the VXR up from the retrimmers on friday (hopefully) and once this is done the list is tiny. Quick clean, new mats, few small touches and it's done.

    This fact means i am now stuck - never been here before to the point of planning a new project already, and the VXR being up for sale.

    So where do you stop, and when you do stop what do you do instead ??

    Cant wait to see it, hopefully it'll sell to someone on here so we'll still see it at shows, it looked awsome at billing!

    im never stop planning what i want to do to my car, the only thing that stops me is my wallet

    TBH Steve I have to say that you even have me confused with this one. I dont get why you have the car up for sale a) before its finished and b) still spending money on it even when its up for sale. IMO if you were that un-settled with the car it should have been sold long ago.

    I find the biggest problem is trying to find a car that ticks all the boxs (probably why Im running 3). As theres no car that really satisfys everything I want it to do without falling down in atleast one area. Hopefully the changing cars thing will be at an end now as I feel pretty settled at the moment, certainly more so than I have for a long time.

    it will never stop unless the car gets sold simple as that there is always something to do to it.
    it will be a real shame if you sell the car. from what i have seen its probably the best car on here

    The cars for sale as a finished entity. Features are all but sorted - just need to finalise date and time - i have nothing more to add to the car, its complete hence now of no interest to me. It was put up for sale with the retrim complete - which it is or will be soon so jobs done. Mats are here just need slinging in so not spending anymore on it.

    I guess i'm saying once you have gone as far as you want with a car, what do you do ??

    ok let me get this right, you buy a VXR, spend prob not far off 10k on it then sell it even before its finished? you need your head checking.
