My tC will be 5 years old in just a few months... seems like a long time. Certainly the longest period I've ever kept the same car - but that's not incredibly hard considering everything else was practically a POS.
So here is my quandary... I've modded the crap out of the one I have - at least to my liking. I will continue to do autox this year (and maybe into next year) and would like to be able to improve. I'd still like to redo my suspension again with some nice coilovers (with some ridiculously stiffer springs). BUT... do I spend the money this year (or next) knowing what is coming?
"What is coming?"
Uh... the awesome is coming. The win and awesome that is the FT-86. Production version should debut this year. Should go on sale in 2011 as a 2012 model. And if it is anywhere near as awesome as it look like it might be, I will be the first in line to throw down a deposit. So what then do I do?
Do I spend $1000+ this year when I know I'm not going to keep the car much longer? Or do I wait and just get something else? Sure, another option would be to save that $1000 and put it towards the down payment or something - but that would be assuming that I didn't have a few other things I'd end up spending the money on. So let's not even take that one into consideration.
And I'm not even going to get into option C. Buy a C30 now and trade it in a year and a half on an FT-86... ya, cause that would work out.
