I think bigger wheels are a bit more important than a bigger engine aggy, its no point being able to fast if you've still got the impracticality of having to swerve to miss a dead squirral on the road incase your bumpers catch it. I know it means arch work and that but just think how much it'll cost to fix the damage thats on it at the min, that could of payed for half a set of wheels, and if it happens again, then you'll have to dig deep in your pockets AGAIN frown

Buy a smoker for everyday driving around and keep your Baby for best matey.

Invest in getting the repair done, even a tidy up job would take your eye away from the damage.

Dont forget how unique and how much the car has cost you to date.

Have faith my child, all will come good thumbsup

You car is the nicest kitted up car on the wirral mate and i think you need to step back a little and take stock, you have cracked the side skirt, thats all......

Throw a couple of hundred quid at it and it will be all singing and dancing once again, with bells on it.

Just remember how you felt when you brought it to the first meet after getting it from the bodyshop, you just need to get your pride back into it mate, thats all.

Just do something to get if off the floor aggy because your only tempting fate, and sooner or later it'll happen again or you'll catch a bumper instead and you'll have to repair it all over again frown

Ahhh the joys of modified cars eh laugh

Modify the body and your constantly repairing little marks, modify the engine and your always fixing the mechanical side.

Modifying cars always causes problems, fixing them keeps your heart in it.

You dont want problems, go buy a std Toyota Corolla or summut wink

You can only do as much as ur bank account can afford to do mate, if i were u i would keep ya car, do the repair.

Uv spent too much money and got the car lookin to nice to throw it all away now, if u want a quicker engine then do an upgrade as and when.

You knew as soon as u put the kit on it was impracticle, raise it with bigger wheels. Deffo would not sell the car tho mate!!!
