Given the choice, would you rather have 200kg removed from your car(hyperthetically) or a paint job in the colour of your choice( not just for resale value) to showroom condition.

basically im asking what do care more about....how it looks? or how it goes?

no sitting on the fence kids, one or the other..

Mine's at 500 horse

So I'll take the paint job. Ta.

200 kilos out of the car is a serious strip and would make it less reasonable as a main car.

You should add option 3 for a 150 horse & 100 ft/lb performance upgrade.

That's my route. Done power upgrades & mechanicals, now I can start on the cosmetics.

Well, I did a succession of engine mods from new ending up with a Middlehurst UK500 conversion.

I then bought a Top Secret hand built RB28 and added the OSG sequential - currently running around 700BHP. (Although it's now undergoing the tweenie touch so we'll see what happens next...)

For me it's definitely go before show!

To loose 200kg is a massive effort, definitely take it away from a streetable car, in that I mean it'd be uncomfortable, not illegal.
