    If you are not over 30 put the money into the car. The insurance on the bike will be outrageous. I always wanted a bike but waited until I was 32 to get one. It's one of the smarter things i've done. Now I have both and I couldn't be happier, well maybe if I had more money to sink into both of them!!

    6 grand into the car, but IMO dont paint it, NMB is a sexy and kind of a rare color the way it is. With 6 grand you can get A LOT of power in that car

    Save painting for when your done with the rest of the mods you want to do. Especially the big ones. It's to easy to get scratches when installing parts. I'd do headers, ORY, heads, cam, stall, tune and rear end with a much better ratio especially if you have the crappy 2.73's. I'm sure that should be around 6 grand.

    well all depends how fast you wanna go 6k can put a good 402 or 408 stroker but then again you have to have the rear end and suspension to handle all that

    A good paint job that includes painting things like the engine bay, all the door jambs, and places like that will chew up the majority, if not all, of that $6k.

    Forget the paint with 6k, you can make you car a reliable 420-450rwhp and still have enough to get the drive train somewhat upgraded. Is your car auto? As for getting a bike or adding hp to th car, i just think its soo much cooler when your the guy in a car keeping up or beating a crotch rocket in a race, my friedn used to always mess wit hme you wanna go race the T/A vs his 600RR but once i got my supra at 517rwhp i was the one goin you wanna go run the supra against your bike. LOL Not to mention insurance, hes 21 with 2 tickets, for a 1000RR insurance was 6grand a year
