PostSubject: Opinions on what to buy... mods or newer charger...?   February 25th 2013, 10:46 am

I have been aggressively paying off my car since last year May. I'm literally living off $60 a week and the rest goes into savings & car payment. I have saved enough to mod the living shit outta my Daytona. I really want to supercharge my car and bring it to life. but... my parents said why don't I get a 2012 Dodge Charger with low miles that will last me a lot longer when it's paid off. My Daytona just hit 90k miles Sad and I'm starting to question if I should invest in it. Opinions? Advice? I really do love the '12 Charger Smile

Get a core model SRT or a superbee. You can find some bee's that have just been sitting on dealers lots.

^^^ what he said.

IMO, 90,000 miles is quite a bit for the mods you're talking about.

I agree with all the info above. Plus you can drive your current car as your daily and bring out the srt or superbee only when it's nice

just buy the newer one.... 90K is a lot of miles.... put the money towards a newer car that has a larger engine to start with and the mod the crap out of that one..... you'll be happier in the long run anyway...

If you like the older body style, I recently saw a brand new 07 srt charger for sale in Woodstock. Brilliant black $34k or buy my old Challenger with a bunch of mods already done.

I dont know what your financial situation is, but if all you have is $60 a weeek left after savings and car payment....i dunno man.

It's not like a 2012 Charger is cheap.
Just a thought.

How about finish paying your current Charger, sell it privately, then buy a newer Charger. The dealer will not give you what your car is worth most of the time.

He will get really close to what its worth if buying a newer srt8. They need to move them asap.

I can afford a used 2012 charger ($18k-25k) ONCE i either payoff or bring down my current loan down. It's the 90k mile mark... bummer lol

Ok cool, I thought I was tripping from my meds. And I agree with what Tom (firestartr420) said " put the money towards a newer car that has a larger engine to start with and the mod the crap out of that one..... you'll be happier in the long run anyway..."

I know someone who is thinking about doing the same as you. Keep the old car and mod it or get something newer/ less miles. Its a big decision.

You have to make sure you can live, having a cool car is nice but being able to eat and have heat at your house is much nicer.

But look at it this way either way you will have a badass car. Very Happy
