Why not just mod it later when you get your license back, it would be cheaper.

have to cost a s**t load to have it locked securely in a shipping container for 4 years... If its sentimental park it in a shed somewhere, esp if a mate owes you a favour or park it in a corner of your yard and use a car cover... Otherwise yeah I;d agree sell it and buy something better and cheaper in 4 years time...

Not off to a good start 18 and banned for 4 years...

sell it now, save the money plus what you would have spent on 'modding it up' and buy something better in four years.

BF falcons will be cheap by then,

Yep, thatd do it. As for the car, if it isnt manual, convert it to manual. Re do all bushes with nolathane, if its standard height, lower it. Swaybars and anti roll bars are good too. Chuck in a leather interior, climate control, cruise control and a trip computer. Put in a big cam, then buy a custom programmed J3 chip. Diff gears are nice (want to get 4.11's). Convert it to electric windows all round, then get some leather door trims to match the seats along wih chrome door handles. Chuck on headers and an exhaust (before you buy the J3 chip so you dont have to get it tuned twice). If you dont have the full kit with the door pods and the front lip, buy it. Respray if it needs it. New tyres are always a worthwhile mod. Personalised plates. Thats should see very good power and a very fun ride. Shouldnt cost all that much either.

A) why refuse unless your a d***head drinking and driving..
B) speeding hey? how fast?
C) stiched you up hmmm, what did they plant a bag of coke or something...

in four years man, the EL's will be going for like 2grand for a upsec car, s**t even the FG's will be around the 5-6 thousand dollar mark give or take...

But i has been said, interior conversion, bushes, shocks, springs, etc etc are you going to let it run out of rego? then do the driveline up (mainly suspension brakes ball joints bearings etc) so in four years it will pass with flying colours...

i would just strip it or sell it whole, and then put the money away for a newer car

like it has been said before, they will be worth nothing no more. look at the wreckers these days, they are getting them in for nothing, not even paying a cent, and a xr is just the same as a normal car, just they have stuck a body kit on to it, motor and interior, basically it.

If i lost my licence for 4 years, i would do what i need to do to my car and sell it off and be happy with what i get for it, then start saving hard for 4 years and buy like a b series or fg series v8

No point in keeping a car which will be worthless, every one is upgrading, dont think no one will down grade

my 2 cents worth
