definetly i'd say it's about time you got an upgrade my boy! as for your other 2 questions, well i don't know! So i can help you, I'LL need to ask YOU a couple of questions:-

1. how much money do you have or realisticaly think you can get in a sensible amount of time?

2. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU PLAY OR WHAT TONE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR!!! sorry for being so loud but a lot of people ask the same type of question and give us no idea of this.

also if you still have a ****ty amp maybe you want to upgrade that first.

+1, good basses sound bad through bad amps, but bad basses sound good through good amps. Get an amp first.

definitly time to upgrade, but save up and buy a decent amp first, for God's sake!

maybe an ashdown blue combo or an ampeg BA115?

See this is the mentality people need to drop. There's no set time or experience level you need in order to upgrade. The time to upgrade is either when A) You need more professional gear or B) You aren't pleased with the sound you have. Other than that, there isn't really anything certain. If you enjoy playing your bass, then no need to upgrade it. If your amps is lacking headroom or you can't get the sound you want, upgrade it.

Anyways, sorry for the rant. I would recommend starting with an amp aswell. The BA210 would also be a wise decision. Even look into Ashdown combos.

and after you get an amp, 250 isn't going to get you anything much better than what you've got, unless you get an amazing deal (check pawn shops that helps) so after the amp i would say save up some money
