    At what point do you stop...and buy a new car.

    Ive been wondering, at what point should you stop spending money on your car and just upgrade the car?

    For example:

    I have deep scuff on my bumper for example, and i'm thinking bout get new bumper, and getting it sprayed, and then fogs put in it whilst i am at it, and getting coilovers, new alloys, DTUK box etc.....

    Just bumper, fogs etc is £200+

    and im not thinking do i bother? or leave it buggered and get new car next year?!?!?!

    So at what point do you think your should just stop, and get a new car?

    Discuss?

    Do you think you can handle driving the car around for a year with it not how you want it? Will it drive you mad every time you go out to get in it?

    If you can get a better car for less money with some of the things you want on than you would spend on the mods then that is the time to change...

    When you realise that all those mods you've done don't even make it as good as the standard new hot hatches.

    Oh yea and when you realise that the car is looking dated.

    All the above are wrong.

    The correct answer is when YOU feel it's right to stop. If we went by the suggestions above, we'd have no MK1 GTE's and such like on the road, would we?

    What's wrong with that?

    PS: I think the reasons people have given are reasons "they" would change? not when people should change?
