I don't worry about warranty, resale, power-to-cost ratio, etc... I like having a car that is not just bought, and out of the box. Any guy with money can just go and purchase an expensive car, but modding requires some more involvement. It's a hobby, culture, and scene
; I've met great friends through modding, and I treasure that just as much as the "parts" I've bought.
Agreed. It's injecting your personality into the car as you individualize it. It's a showcase for your tastes and priorities. It's like interior decorating. Oops. You know, like in a manly way.
