I need help in car purchase decision

Well, for the past 3 years i have driven my mums ED Furtura for the past 3 odd years, and i have finally had to purchase it.

I have done all the mods, and not even owned it.

So now i have to either buy this car, or buy another one. I have been looking at ED XR6's, and there is one goin for $8500 near my place.

The Futura has done 215,000, and is in perfect condition, and i would b really sad to see it go.

Current car : http://members.cardomain.com/dvs06

or should i bite the bullet and get an XR....

Re: I need help in car purchase decision

well we are trying to work that price out at the moment. see i no the insides of this car, and how its been treated, so i really do wanna keep it, but there is this little devil inside that says, the minimum car i should get is an auto xr6, then goin all the way up to manual xr8.

i wish it wasnt soo hard to make this decision


how much do you think the futura is worth, just by looking at those pics. its in really good condition inside too

Re: I need help in car purchase decision

So say 5,500, thats about 3 grand in your pocket, and make it go faster, lower, and look better ........... tough decision
