Default LAS VEGAS vs TURBO

ive been wanting to go to vegas for sometime now (never been out west or on a plane), and was actually planning to in mid july for 12days, i was going to see one of my favorite bands, gamble away some money, watch a few shows and eat like a king.... but i came across a great deal on a turbo setup..

i figure with the money i would save from not going and not spending all that money out in vegas i will easily be able to get the turbo setup and the supporting mods (upgrade fuel system, tune ect..)


im 99% sure im going with the turbo but multiple people tell me i will regret not going out to vegas...

what are your thoughts..

As your attorney , I advise you to go to Vegas. Blows my schedule as I'll have to go with you for legal counsel and we'll have to arm ourselves , to the teeth.

Do what I do when I have a big decision to make; make a pros and cons list...and drink. If you don't have a whole lot of self-discipline, I'd go with the turbo. Money just seems to slip out of your hands in Vegas without you realizing it. It's a hard decision.

VEGAS.

The most wonderous place on earth.

You can go to Vegas where you are guaranteed to have a great time, or you can buy a turbo where you are guaranteed to have to dump money into your car for the rest of it's life. Trust me, it never ends.

I'd say turbo just cause I've already been to Vegas 3 times. Kinda lost it's edge to me I guess.

Turbo. Vegas is fun, but it'll be fun anytime you want to go. I've been there multiple times, and they were all similar experiences.

Plus, if you blow 90% of your money on a bad "Red" call and the other 10% on a hooker that turns out to be a dude you'll be really pissed off at yourself by the time you come back.

I'd say go to vegas for three or four days instead of 12. Hopefully you'll still have some $$$ left over.

Go to Vegas and have some fun, that experience may enhance your life. The turbo will just send you down the road of poverty for years to come

Although it sounds backwards its the truth lol.
