Like everyone on here has stated, modding is just an expensive hobby. I used to think that I was crazy and wasting money from spending so much on mods but then I realized that there is nothing wrong with spending money on things for your own personal enjoyment as long as you don't over spend. Everyone does it. For example, you could buy an fully loaded M3 from the money my wife spends on handbags and shoes or a used 458 from the money my boss uses to decorate her house.
M3 is gone. Pretending to be a dad now with an X5...
