Powder coat stock wheels or cough up for replica zl1

I'm looking for advice guys. Should I just powder coat my stock 2014 18's gloss black or cough up for the zl1's!?!?

I kinda want to throw in the least amount of money into this car considering it's not a V8. I will probably have it for two more years or more who knows but I will definitely be stepping up to a Vette or v8 Camaro.

It's time for new tires so if I'm going to powder coat nows the time and or throw down the cash for the 20' replica zl1's and tires.

What are your guys thoughts? I justt want to black it out a little but not sure if not grabbing the 20's will be a mistake vs paying to powder coat the stocks. Looking at about $500 to powder coat.

Thoughts?

If you are set on getting a V8, do neither, put that money towards saving for your next vehicle.

Only you know your financial situation which is why these threads are just nonsense....Do what you can afford to.

I agree with Dizzy. If you aren't planning to keep it, then any upgrades/updates are a waste of money. Put the money towards your loan or put it your savings for your next down payment.
