The age doesn't matter :P I'm 19 and I have this car since 18 and I spent few grands on it :). I work hard for every penny on it so I think it's the same for him ;) But, when you take a look at junkyards, Focusfanatic forum and ebay, you can find interesting stuff with low prices :) I found my SVT seats in a junkyard for 320$ (all of them). When you wait and take the time to shop, you save money, as simple as this !
