I know this is a ways off, but I will be going into college this next year and I found out that the college I plan on going to is much cheaper than me and my parents originally thought. If I can get enough scholarships to cover most, if not all of the tuition, then I will anywhere from 6-10k left over from the money my parents put away, and they said if I don't use it for college, it is mine.
I also have a good amount I got from my gramma when she passed away, and that is being saved for a down payment on a house, or something really important.
So here is my question:
If I do in fact have like 5-10k left over, do you think I should sell my current stang, and take the money from the sale+some of the left over money and buy like a 07-09 GT, and get like a CAI+Tuner right off the bat, and then put all the left over from that into savings?
OR, should I just buy a supercharger for my current v6, and put all the left overs from that into savings? Or... Just not spend any of it, and put all into savings..? o.0
Here is kind of the pros, and cons of both of both that I can see: Getting a GT:
-More power, much higher top potential horsepower cap.
-Sound of the engine and exhaust just better in general
-Just more fun!
-Worse gas mileage
-Have put about $1000 worth of upgrades into my v6 already. Keeping v6, and getting supercharger:
-No insurance increase
-Not throwing away the $1000 worth of upgrades I have done
-More fun than I am having now
-That will be about as much horsepower as I can get out of it, so no where near as much potential HP as a GT
-Don't particularly like the sound of a Supercharger Not buying anything, and saving all the money:
-Probably the smartest option.. :P
-If I get in a pinch, I have money to fall back on
-No fun at all..
-No upgrades for my car.
Sorry for the super long post guys, but I wanted to give as much details as possible, and I don't want to make a big mistake on this. :P
Thanks for your time, and advise!
