.....As you know my ride is actually....dead.....:banghead: :banghead:


so i planned to fix it.. but these are the budget:

body work: From 4500€ to 5500€

pieces : 6000€ (and more) only external + mechanical pieces (dunno yet the prices)
TOT: more or less 14k €

.... the car as it is now,is valued 4000€ ...if it was ok the value rises to 23-24k €

...what do I have to do???

I planned to buy an m3 next year.. but sadly now I've to choose, or walk or mom's car...(untill I solved the problem)

...my budget is 25k€...

what you suggest to do???

................................buy an other one ,or fix mine...................

(i'll buy an other one with few option and then transfer mine on that... xenon-nav-tv-coil-etc etc)

Either way, I think you would have to fix it. After fixing it, you still have two choices. If you fix it, the car can be sold at a better value, too.

yeah..but listen to this...

I've payed it 28k.... add 12k for fixin = 40k


is it worth spend 12k on a car that i'll sell in 6 months???

isn't better to save the 12k for the new one??

..the problem that is killing me,is that the damage is near to the car value (consider that 328 value will be 20k or less to the end of the year...:banghead: )

Buy a Fiat :eek:

But seriously, why not just a cheap car, and sell than in 6 months
? You don't lose alot(hardly any) of resale on very inexpensive cars.

.......i'll sell some stuff or transfer it on the new one....
the engine depends... if I buy a 330/325 i'll sell it, if i buy a 323....I swap it.... (if i find the way to gain 22 hp from 323, i'll sell it )

@ 330igt:
my mom already said that......." now you'll buy a fiat....":banghead: :banghead: :banghead:


Shieeet..... the fiat SUX.... not for the design.. but for all the rest.......


I'd rather have a moped.................

Get rid of it, save for M3, then ride moped or use moms car till then:D

Saves you the hassle of unforseen problems and costs cropping up sometimes related to fixing up a damaged car...

But its your call:dunno:

See if insurance will help you out. I was driving my mom's wagon and some rubber disk attaching the tranny to the drive shaft (forget what its called) broke and the driveshaft ripped apart the tranny casing on the freeway and then the airbags blew and the pressure blew out the back windshield. The airbags were the scariest thing ever because the powerder on them seemed like smoke and was hard to breath so I managed to pull on to the side of the freeway. Anyway to make a long story short repairs were 12k insurance paid 12k even though it wasn't an accident with another car.

..sure.. here you must have an insurance to drive a car....
but they're different than yours (whe are as the 3rd world for insurance:banghead: )...

they would refound me ALL the damege only if i had a specific contract... (called Kasco...The most expensive!!something like 3k for 6 months)

I had the "base" (they pay for the damage on others car if they were involved, I have to pay mine)
