if you cant afford them you plain and simply cant have them, getting a credit card doesnt count as being able to afford them because if you cant afford the repayments your up s**t creek anyway. credit cards are just a process of dragging out debt!
this!!! (although im about to take out a loan to pay mine off and get a few bits for the 172 ;) )

People actually contemplate getting loans to buy things for a Clio!?!?

I agree. If you really want it and you have a stable job that allows you to make the repayments then why not if it makes you happy :).
 
there are no stable jobs these days!

i work on the railway which used to be considered a job for life. recently its not so, so in a years time when youve racked up a debt on your card then you get the sack and cant make repayments your part of the problem. because you wanted a faster clio

Now there's optimism for you lol ...

For the OP, i wouldnt recommend getting into debt for itb's on a clio, at 18.

But the sensible borrowing of money is one of lifes essentials imho.

Forum just gets more rediculous by the day. If you really want them then save up!

Asking for a mechanic/garage to provide you monthly repayments for parts is ridiculous. However if you decide to pay for something like this on a creditcard which you pay monthly then that doesnt sound too out of the ordinary as people put far more stupid things on creditcards so this would be a drop in the ocean.

and this is one of the reasons our economy is in such a mess. people wanting what they cant afford, buying it on borrowed money they cant pay back! yes people do buy stupider things on credit cards but like i said they are part of the problem.

a credic card imo should be used all the time, but inly to buy things you already have the money for. that way your benefiting from the safety of a credit card transaction and your not putting yourself into debt because you can pay it off.

say this guy does get some ITBs on a credit card and he can afford the repayments every month, what happens then in 6 months when his gearbox blows because of the powahz? or his clutch goes because its been slipping since hes fitted the ITB's? how does the guy who is in debt pay for that?

put himself into more debt of course with the credit card! vicious circle!

If your sensible with money and you can put it on a 0% credit card then why not. yes saving up is the safest thing to do but if your in a steady job and can pay it off within 6 months then i dont really see a problem with it. what really boils my piss is when someone is already skint and puts it on their card and starts missing payments etc.

Id happily put this on a card get 6 months of enjoyment out of them while paying them off and it not have cost me a penny more than if i had saved up for it..

do what the rest of the country has done, rack up credit cards, lose job, then go to a debt management company and payback a fiver a month to all the creditors u owe, they wont be able to touch you as your young, have no job and no mortgage, nor will you ever be able to get one due to your appalling credit file, but hey, your car goes well and sounds the nuts!!!

Just no.... In my opinion, if you want... you save.

If you need a credit card to afford the repayments over a year at circa £200 a month (for arguments sake 2400 on bodies) then you should be displined enough to save £200 a month for 12 months. Not that credit cards a bad when used wisely, but for Clio mods?!

Drive it, Enjoy it as is. Put Monies in bank to save for a better car or mods if you must.

Nothing worse than paying finance on mods for a car that you no longer own / wrote off / cant afford to run.

Fair question IMO

Fella wants 3k's worth of kit and can't pay it off at once.

FFS you'd think he was indifferent to 90% of the population the way folk have been posting :clown:

Hit the nail on the head.. Worked on the railway myself from 17 and was considered a job for life needles to say I'm now an apprentice electrician

With the current financial climate all I would recommend is that you don't stretch yourself too far when it comes to financing things. Remember that the unexpected can happen and if you already have one thing on finance getting another could be more tricky!!
