    no permission to read the classifieds?

    You do not have the required permissions to read topics within this forum. Perhaps they've blocked people in Dandenong? lol

    What should I do with my money?

    Is that extra speed a result of exit speed and straight line speed? $1700 + fitting still works out a lot more than I'm currently paying. 195/55/15 RE001 Adrenaline for $155ea fitted/balanced. That's $620 for all four. I get about 20,000KM on the Xsara, although perhaps I'd get more on the R26 given it's bigger wheels and LSD.

    Gee, that gives me something to think about. R26 cons - Tyre costs - Heavier, less corner speed? R26 pros - Turbo, more power Certainly cheap though. Dad's is probably the lowest KM example in the country, only 11,000

    Yeah, I saw that R26, but... hmm. I'd rather keep the Xsara too, but I doubt it! I'd trade it if they'd give me $5k for it. Hey, if I was going to go to the effort of modding something old then I'd do it to the Xsara! Gee, can you tell I love her?

    Respraying a new R27? Yipe! The question is, can the dealer be knocked down to that price?...

    What should I do with my money?

    Gee, what a dilemma. I probably have $34-38k to spend. I've currently got a Citroen Xsara VTS, 2002, 220,000KM and it still goes hard. I want to attack those corners hard, get from point a to point b along a twisty mountainous road as if I were flying in a straight line in a mig jet. :wanker: Do I: - Upgrade the Xsara (~$10k). It's already got 220k KM on it, so it's about time for the electrics to start packing it in I'd think. It's been super reliable and it holds its ground against a highly modified GTIR, except the lack of boost obviously. - Megane Sport 225 F1 Team with 24,000KM for $26,500 Sport cup with 45,000KM for $27,990 Heavier than a clio, but turbo charged. Not as quick through corners, but quicker out I'd imagine? - Megane R26 There's one black one on carsales atm for $39,000 with 11,000KM. Gee, could you go wrong? Maybe a bit too high for my budget, but there couldn't be a better car for the money. Tyres last me 20,000KM on the Xsara and it is a daily driver. Granted they're only 15", but I could not afford to be changing them twice a year at $600 a corner! - Clio 197 I'm sure I could get one of these for $30k driveaway, so it's certainly the cheapest option, but is it the best? - Clio R27 This thing is hot. I could get yellow, but then that's the same colour as Dad's R26 and I do like the look of the white (haven't seen in person yet). What's the availability of these things? How cheap could I get one, $38k driveaway out of the picture? Only downside is it's even smaller than the xsara for any passengers and cargo, I do like to put the child seat in the back every once in a while.
