Title: Advice please
Post by: CAZZZ on June 30, 2021, 07:52:51 pm
My 2019 Comp was delivered today and unbeknownst to me it has a stage 1 remap plus Forge front mount intercooler and induction kit. It’s going to send my insurance rocketting so the seller has said he can get the mods removed. I haven’t got long to decide - is it best to have the car returned to its original state or would it be better to keep the mods? Would they affect resale?

Return to stock from my past experience most modifications become annoying once the novelty has worn off.

In what way?

Mainly excessive noise inside the car which becomes irritating after a while, I also found that most mods never quite fit without some mods elsewhere, when I was younger I couldn’t wait to modify my cars this included Mini Coopers (engine mods) MGB (engine mods) Lotus Turbo Esprit (suspension and induction mods) I’ve learnt by experience also there is the issue of insurance the assessors do know what they are looking at and will deny a claim without hesitation if you decide to chance it.

You could also buy the car as is and sell off the extras. :thumb:
