    First Car should be mechanically fit
    Second looks either a clean or some sporty.

    dont swap engine if current is working fine.
    save this money for future overhauling and other issues.

    relax and complete the things which you are missing like if seat belts not present, any other minor things.

    Beeberg is 100% right if the engine is fine dont sawp. Wait till it dies. For the time being improve the looks. Clean up the interior. Like Door Pannels, handles, switches etc. Make it tip top inside and outside.

    dont even think off loosing ur original engine when its working fine... if your budget is 40-50ks, you can do allot with the decoration of ur car!

    There is no Bird by the name of ecomony, dont Swap any thing in ur car if u dont have good backup plains,

    this is brother to brother advice, ask any one here in this form who had swaped engines, the expeses goess way above plained expenses,

    dont waste ur cash in any thing except good 15 inch rims, 185/60/15 is the size that will fit in charade 88, Easily,

    Spending on body is like making ur car cheap,looking,
    the desent the best, every one will admire it,

    thanks,

    Swap=Money + Time + Resources + Hassle

    If you have all of these in excess, go for a swap, otherwise go for just alloys, seat covers, tyres (if worn), restoration (if required) and Stage-1 mods (if you wish to), nothing extra-ordinary decoration is needed!
