    Car Advice - to upgrade or to improve?

    Hi all,

    Ive put my car up on pistonheads to see if anyone was interested but am wondering wether its the right thing to do.

    I do love my car but after having it for 2 years im growing tired of her.
    I've looked at the likes of a TT and am liking it a lot.

    Though when I sit back and think. My cars done 91K so I wont get back a huge amount for her and will have to pay in a lot to get a mint TT. Should I tidy up the coupe and improve her. After cleaning today I came up with a list of front end respray, rear bumper respray and new engine and suspension.

    This is something I could do over the next year or so and im sure will cost me a small fortune but would be fun.

    So the question is would you spend the money and make improvements or save and buy a newer car?

    Cheers

    How embarrasing!

    Its a 1.8 coupe mk4. I was thinking LEH if i wanted to go turbo power. Do people manage to sell their old engines for much these days? As said mines got 90K on the clock. Would i get much back for it to offset the cost of the new one?

    Cheers
