i disagree that less upgrades equals better for eldar vehicles.
Vectored engines, Star Engines, Spirit Stones together are more points then a shurrican cannon Armed warwalker.
If its just
Star Engines on 4 Vehicles, thats 60pts. Thats a single War Walker with 2x Scatter Lasers, or a minimum unit of Dire Avengers.
Don't get me wrong: Having an upgrade or two on certain units can help out in some situations but consider the cost of upgrades.
2x Fire Prism. Holofield/Spirit Stones = 320 pts
3x Fire Prism. No Upgrades = 345 pts
I'm pretty sure the 3 Fire Prisms are more durable, or atleast equal in durability to 2 with upgrades in most situations. At the same time, for 25pts more, you have 50% more firepower.
Spirit Stones - Crew Stunned isn't as common as it was in 4th edition. I would only consider it on a transport with a scoring unit
Vectored Engines - Can help, but its a pricey option.
Star Engines - I would only consider on a front line transport with a VIP cargo
Holo-field - Adds a layer of durability, but the upgrade is a high cost almost that of some very basic units
