You can get a personal loan. My bank has them at 11% right now which is lower than alot of credit cards. Also if you owe less on your car than its loan value then you can refinance the car for full loan value then use the extra money. Or if you have a second car that is paid off, you could see if the bank will refinance that.

I would avoid getting credit from any shop or store. Most of their interest rates are 22% or more.

Usually a reputable shop that sells turbo will take 1/2 of the cost up front, then require the other half when the kit ships.

There are several months in between those two times. Keep that in mind when you're ordering! Waiting is a form of financing, you can often order before you can afford it. And I'm still waiting for mine.

My credit cards charge something like 18-27% interest on outstanding balances. But, I keep getting offers for balance transfer checks of between 8.75% and 5.99%. Instant financing! And some people wonder how I can afford toys for the car...

Pay all your bills on time, pay off loans ahead of schedule, use your credit cards and soon you'll have good credit card offers. I carry a pair of platinum cards, one with fixed 7.9%. Read the fine print because every now and then you get an offer that has a good rate after the introductory period. Shred the rest of them.

Oh, but anyway the best way to finance this is to save your money until you have enough to buy it. Then DON'T touch that money and order it on your credit card. Pay off the balance quickly (not necessarily one payment, whatever works for you).

fixed 10.9% APR for me... and if I pay more than the monthly minimum but not enough to pay it off completely they don't seem to charge any interest at all! I don't know why this happens but it's a nifty feature all right... I bank (and get my credit card) through my company's credit union.

But I like colin's suggestion better - save your money and pay it off all at once. I don't like the feeling of living from paycheck to paychck.

Then there's those of us with less than a year of credit (perfect thus far, however)but with a salary more than capable of supporting a small personal loan on top of the scooby payment and other bills. Shut down! My credit union (of whom I have been with for 5 years) would hardly get me the time of day. I have 3 different lines of credit (excluding any bank accounts) two of which were paid off at the time, and they didn't care.

How do you like this: FIXED 5.9% on one card and Fixed 11.9% on another. All this for a 21 year old kid

Post Financing a turbo

Well Thinking about the difference between getting a aftermarket turbo or buying a new WRX when they come out, financing occured to me. The main reason why aftermarket turbos havent been within reach is that I cant or dont know how to finance them. Has anyone managed to get financing on a aftermarket turbo? How did you do it? Where will they give loans for this sort of thing? I can afford to tack on more to the monthly payment than I can afford to get $3-6k together at once.

I think JC Sports was working to get a finance plan available to their buyers through their bank or something. Not sure what it would be on since you'd offer no collateral for it though. Probably be a fairly high percentage on interest though.

I don't know what your credit rating is, but my mom gets credit cars in the mail for like 2.9-5.9 for the first 6 months....so you use it for 6 months then transfer the debt to another credit card.
