cost of modding?

Have you sat down & actually totaled up how much you've spent on your car? I am about to do just that. When I do I will post but until then, how much have you spent on mods? Is it freakin ridiculous or what?

I got the car in June 05, by december I had intake, exhaust and Steeda had just installed SVT suspension. That came to $1200 or so and since then ive gotten new tires, strut tower brace, and racing wires, so that can go to about $2000.

I've spent well over $10k, and I'm about to drop another $7k here very shortly. I'd like to think about all the other stuff I could have for $17k....but then I might cry.

About $3,000 in a year of modding. Not too bad.
