    advice please

    hiya guys

    basically im faced with a problem.

    ive got a 1.4 astra h sxi sporthatch, ive only had it for about 2 months and at the beginning was a great improvement to my last car (a corsa c)

    but now, i realised ive made a mistake buying the car. i need something with more power. the 1.4 is shocking, and i spend a lot of time travelling so want something a bit more exciting.

    where do i stand with getting a new car if my current one is still fairly new in a credit agreement?
    im still gonna keep the car approx 6 months but after that im looking at getting something quicker, a vxr.

    basically im wanting advice on routes i could take to getting a new car, i know ive lost a lot of money and should have waited but i guess you learn from your mistakes.

    any help would be appreciated. thank you

    feel free to abuse me also for been a nob and wasting money lol

    Have you not thought about tuning it?

    I'm lead to believe the 1.4 is quite nippy...... and even better with some subtle engine mods....

    De-restricted airbox and K&N panel filter is a good start..

    yea i could tune it to get more power
    but i can never get a straight answer to what mods and what power i could get from it.

    to get any decent gains, i would have been as well buying a vxr also with the money i would need to spend on it

    Hmmm....

    When you say you're early in your credit agreement, how long is it for?

    I'm not sure if you can sell a car if it has outstanding finance...... but I could be wrong if the rules have changed...... I need to check....
