PostSubject: My Dillema....   Wed Jun 23, 2010 4:49 am

Bought a Disco... 1000.

Trying to save up a deposit for a house...

Disco was valued today at between 2000-2500

Obviously i'd need a daily, my dad's selling his Corsa Sport for 500...

Doing the old switcheroonie would leave me with 2000 extra for the house, but i'd be in a car i wouldn't like (compared to the Disco which i love)

It's more the emotional attachment to the Truck than anything...

What you you do in my position... imagine it was your car....

As if Dad would give up his beloved corsa for 500 Razz

As if the disco is worth 2 grand Razz

If thats true though then DO IT Very Happy

You will have a car you don't like but will have a house and will be able to complete the city Smile . But you wont have the pleasure of the quarry Sad

If it were me and it was my 106 v's more money for deposit on a house... I wouldn't be able to give up my cherished car.

Good things come to those who wait, apparently. So I'd just keep working hard and keep on saving each month.

Unless you've found the ideal house and need to get cracking right away.

Dunno I sold my Prelude for wedding funds and did swiftly regret it...lucky I got it back as a wedding present as I was seriously considering buying another anyway!

I say if you love the Disco keep it and save for little longer if you have time, but if you don't have time sell it and buy another one down the line! All depends on your time frame IMO!

You know you would just end up with another disco so you might as well just keep it stu.

also is it a "sport". If ever a car were wrongly named, it is the Corsa "Sport".

Corsas are rubbish and look crap. Land Rover is the way forward, and besides, we have finally found a car you actually fit in!!

Even I've grown attached to the hunk of junk!!

Plus when I get my defender, who will be there to pull me out at the quarry?! Adam?!

No offence Ad, it's just, I've been behind your car before and look what happened?! Did you get that light fixed by the way Razz!!

the disco is about as aesthetically pleasing as a blobfish...



Every minute of its life is pain... Sad

Really good condition discos only fetch 1500 and yours has a dented roof and has a clogged filter because of all that bloody chip fat Razz

Still corsa is the way to go Very Happy doubt you will fit Sad

Depends what is more important to you, or how quick you want that house against how much you're currently saving without added funding.
