As you asked me - you're wrong lol.

How many stock gtsts sell for more than tuned well ones?

All new cars devalue.
I made 1863 on my 34.

Find the right base car and do it well and you can make money

I think that article is more based on chivvy little corsa's, saxo's, etc etc.

although I agree that it's an addiction and from personal experience, reaching "that number" never exists, I thought I'd be happy, over the moon in fact with 400hp.

The sad truth is that I just want more now and I'm sure when I get more, that won't be enough either I haven't even started on the bodywork really and already spent a small fortune. Nowhere near a lot of other people on here mind.

Actually the more I type the more I agree with the article :/ that's why so many cars get broken for parts. FML lol

It is true to a degree. It always makes me laugh when people put a car up for sale for a ludicrous amount and their defense when questioned is "But I've spent loads on it".

Tuning is definitely a bug though
