    I'd save it... bwahahahaha... yea right... I haven't saved anything without being forced to, or unless i was saving it to buy something big. Get the spoiler.... replace the tires when the ones you have need to be replaced.... save up some money for those.

    dude tires. Don't worry about a spoiler's downforce if you can't get traction.

    Nov 1st till Feb 1st is about 12 weeks. If you're working a 40 hr. week, that's 480 hrs, at an increase of 2.60/hr, that's $1,248 before taxes. Once uncle sam puts his hand in the jar, you'll get somewhere around $875... that's my estimate anyway (70% of $1,248 is $873.60).

    Comeone, don't make us laugh! We know spoilers are for looks and little else (on the elantra).

    Congratulations man, I'm glad to hear that you're moving on up!

    Since your tires are still new, I'd use that up and get the spoiler you wanted. Unless you can sell your old tires for a decent price, then I would definitely get that first because how your car handles matters more than how your car looks.

    Save money? I don't know what that statement means LOL. I like the spoiler idea and the new tires later.

    Awesome... congrats... meanwhile... I just got a 5% raise... which puts me at $37.8k a year from $36k a year. Which if you think about it is a crappy raise. I'm only making $5 more per day. And I'm still below the low average for what I do in San Diego. I'm a web developer. But I guess I can't complain since I got a good job and I'm making at least a little more.

    Congrats on the raise.

    Have them take a little extra out of your check or you might owe uncle sam at the end of the year. Putting it in a 401k wouldn't hurt either, that is tax deductible.

    I would say save a little & take out some money once in a while to spoil yourself

    Hey, you only live once!

    Don't forget they pay state taxes too, unlike us in Florida

    Congrats Scott, I guess that is what you get when you give copies instead of originals - hahaha.
