Money in da Ride !!

So just wondering guys, how much money have you spent on your ride not including the value you bought your car at. Please list your car specs if you can to.

is the question how much is sitting ON the car right now, or is the question how much money have we spent doing mods over the life of our hobby? cuz many of us have gone through multiple wheels, susp, seats, lights, etc... so the two numbers will be very different in some cases. For me, I'd say about $8000 sitting on the car right now, and roughly $20,000 spent on the car in total (not inluding original sticker price) over the last 9 years.

prices also vary due to different sellers and condition when you bought the mods and special deals/hook ups and what not. so two people having the exact same cars could report different numbers.

Value will change if I can do it all over again, part of spending is learning process. So hopefully, the lesson I learned on this car maybe somewhat helpful if I want to modify another car in the future.

But seeing how costly it is to begin with, I think I will just stick with what I have for as long as I own it.

$5Gs for the car -->98 hatch
$3.5Gs for swap-->ITR swap
$1G for wheels-->2 sets
$2G for suspension--->coilovers + brakes + sways and strut bars
$1g for interior -->seats, steeering, stereo
$1g+ for misc-->other little pieces, upgrades and tune up parts
------->2 years of ownership - its not too bad overall as many loose that much on leased car and have nothing to show.

Sometimes i find it funny, how young guys who start with their car go crazy with the money on mods, very impulsive. And when your done with your car, you never feel like your done and by that time you either need another car or you need to keep going. you'd think you would have learned your lesson, but sadly it takes a lot of empty pockets before you do. But then again, you can't take your money to the grave with you.
