I spend a lot of time driving so for me its worth it to upgrade certain things. Stereo system upgrade is usually the first thing to go in, then suspension, then brakes.

I say its worth it because I enjoy modding cars, and having something unique and different. Is it worth it in terms of money? No. Anyone knows that you'll never get out of your car what you put into it. But as long as you understand and can accept that, I think its worth it.

Where I live, yes and no. In the city they are super picky and will give you an handful of tickets for modifications. But, if you don't get pulled over car nodding is awesome as it makes your car unique

Picky as in laws are very strict and ridiculous. And they have a "unit" that. Goes out and does random inspections.

A stock truck off the showroom floor can fail these inspections. That's how stupid it is lol.

Worst part is, to register a vehicle it has to be "safetied" and even a freshly safetied vehicle can fail an inspection as they follow two sets of rules lol.

Its messed up. Oh.. And the insurance company (we have one public insurance company here) pays for this unit, which is run by cops working overtime.

So my money I pay for registration and insurance is going to cops to give me tickets lol.
