Fcuking mod bug!!!

So some of you know a couple months back I was thinking of selling my car, I even spent $80-90 and put the car up on cars.com and autotrader.com not to mention craigslist etc etc. I demodded the entire car, I had spent around 7k (wheels/tires, OEM front lip, CF grilles, painted reflectors, HID fogs, SSTT, AA BOV, springs, SSK, M nkob...etc etc) and I stripped all the mods off and sold them for literally 30-50% off what I paid. As an example my Work T1S' I bought (with tires/mounted balanced/shipped) for around 3k) sold it for 2300...(after ONLY 1 month, perfect condition!!)

So after posting up my car, I had around 4-5 people interested, even a guy who was going to drive down from Vermont to get the car...but for some reason I didnt want to let it go.

I knew selling it, would've meant a big loss especially in the first year of ownership...I thought about a C63 (then I saw they wanted 70k, no discount from MSRP). For a while I thought maybe get something which uses less gas etc (I get 21-22 mpg average) but still couldnt let it go...

So fast forward to August I finally decided to keep the car...

NOW, Ive been starting to slowly MOD the damn car again...and I find myself buying back alot of similar (if not the same parts) LOL...

I'm kind of pissed at myself for not really thinking it through the first time around.............

So anyways, anybody else here who has this goddamn addiction and cannot stop modding?!?! It's like everyday I'm thinking of what to buy next.....and once the car is looking perfect/complete, I suddenly have the urge to move onto something else...WTF?!?!?!??!

Good thing you've got an amazing car as is. If I had your car all I'd do is tint, matte black grilles, and wheels.

i understand... i got the mod bug too... i have not even gotten my car yet and i already have a set of Advan RS wheels with Pzero tires sitting at home for the M3... i also got a short shifter, laser interceptor, painted reflectors... i am still shopping for more stuff.. and believe it or not my M3 is only supposed to come in feb next year.. so i am modding way ahead of time. its not going to be stock for a total of 15 mins (the time it takes to get the car back to my house).

Dude....I spend 17k which was at that time $34k on my E46 M3, and when I sold it; I only got back 1/3 of what I had spent and thought to myself - what a f**^^ waste of money and never again. When I bought the E60 M6, I only did the springs, grills and lips and now with the M3; hmmmm.....I am being stupid again
