    Not much spare cash for the past 6 months, so I've not done any more mods or jobs on the car that I'd like to.:(
    I'm guessing there maybe a few in a similar position or just been sensible and holding on to their cash for a while.

    So, I thought it might be a bit of fun to see what we all would do with 1K to spend on our cars.


    My spend would be.....

    Paddle shift
    Re-map
    Wheels refurbed.
    4 wheel alignment and camber
    Full valet


    Jay. :)

    Mine would be:

    Wheel refurb & new tyres all round
    Get all the little dinks and scratches removed
    Replace the black rear bumper insert replaced ( as i reversed into a ramp and holed it!)
    Get a pro to sort out the hot rough running problem ( Probably a grand on its own!)

    Yep! It's your budget. Ebay or S/hand - it doesn't matter! It actually makes it more fun;)

    Exactly!

    We'll all have a different list.

    This is what makes it more interesting.

    1K? Even in your money, that won't go very far. I suppose I'd like to have someone else fix my sunroof instead of doing it myself.... but that won't cover it.
