Your argument is invalid.

Exhaust for svt = 1-2 HP.

Spacer = 11 HP

I can do math, can you?

Not hating, just giving advice <3
Well ya I know I don't NEED to mod a daily. Odds are I won't really, except for winter / summer different sets of wheels and tires.

Valid, if I was ever planning to sell the G I'd want to keep the miles as low as possible still for all that extra value in the car.. But since I don't plan on that then who really cares about the miles.. although it is fun to see peoples faces when I tell them the 04 has under 50k
