|2000Red||Are mods worth it? You might get 10 cents on the dollar if you're lucky when you sell. But modding is not about making money IMO. I like machinery that works! Works well and works as a unit. I work on a lot of machinery every day. Much of it is a constant battle to keep running right. I like modding because it allows me to select the improvements that positively affect the appearance and performance of my personal machine--that make it run the way I want it to. At the end of the day, when I get into my car and drive, it makes me smile when it does what I want it to do in a way that's exciting and pleasing to me. These days, things that make me smile are worth quite a bit!|

With 200k on the ticker I'm not gonna bolt anything else on. Might give it a heart attack.

|dchawk81||I don't personally go in for it beyond maybe a better exhaust from stock when the original gets old and rusted out. Example my Navigator had a relatively small quiet but restrictive system that finally needed replaced, so I went with 3" Magnaflow tubing and their straight through muffler.|

As for whether or not a modification is "worth it" depends upon the individual definition of what "worth it" means to them. As for myself, I do modifications to "correct" issues with my vehicles, not to "dress them up."
Currently, I'm working out the "bugs" of modification of my MK3 to MK3 ST front brakes on my SE due to the famous issue of warping front rotors. The benefit of the ST brakes is larger surface area of the pad, improved ability of the rotor to resist heat build up under hard use (due to larger rotor, approx. 1.5"), possible reduced stopping distance in panic stop and wider choice of performance pad materials. Sadly, larger front brakes are not available as a factory option. All of my MK1 Focus were updated to SVT brakes front and rear and suspension upgrades to the sedan and ZX3 were done as well.
Big brake kits are great, but, very expensive and one may not get the benefits of the larger front brakes unless you are into track days and/or motor cross. I'm into practical solutions to an issue that the factory has created without spending huge amounts of money. Safety is my thing and if I can make the vehicle safer without spending a fortune on it, I will. Just my two cents.....

|felixthecat||So I take it, you don't like GM products? For me it'd depend on the category of car your looking for. Ford has it covered w/ the Fist/Fost/RS, Mustang's & super duty's. Chrysler has the SRT's & Viper's & GM has it covered in the Mid size's,Camaro's, Vette's & Cadillac has the ats-v & cts-v. For a 1/2 it's pretty much a toss up= they're all pretty good.|
