It's not a public poll is it?

So how the hell will you correlate answers?

Some guy just did the same thing recently in another poll, LOL.

Hmm.... let me see if I can edit it to make it public. I realized after I posted it it's going to be hard to correlate.

you're gonna need a much more detailed questionnaire to discern any real trends. this is a multi-dimensional topic with a lot more folds to it than just age and mod categories. to name just a few variables, socio-economic status, family status (married, kids, etc.), geography, and generational wealth (inherited money, trust fund, etc.) each have a profound effect on the results.

having said that, 27 yrs old here and have added a S/C, BBK, C/Os, stack gauges, full exhaust, 2 sets of HRE's, 3 sets of wheels in total, and just a few cosmetic mods (AiBs and gloss black painted reflectors, grills, side-markers and interior trim).

it's a disease.

I think we all say that at one point. No way you will keep it stock.

I agree, although I wasn't worried about all those other factors. Just age and type of mods. I'm wondering if the older the owner gets the more or less likely they are to buy stuff that is strictly cosmetic as opposed to performance oriented or as people get older are they more likely to stay stock. not interested in the correlation between money or marriage in mods.

33 this year, mods listed here (cosmetic): http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...uteperformance

mods pending/contemplating: looking for an axle back that doesn't comprise my sanity for daily driving, most likely will go with an Akra slip on

Good luck.
