How much have you spent on modding ?

How much have you spent altogether and after it was done do you think it was worththe money ?
  BMW 330D
Bout £1000 now i think.
Was worth it for some stuff not for others though.
Wheels and TV:cool: worth it, 172 bodykit not so.
  AMV8, Mk1 Golf
on my way to 3k :S

wheels worth it deff, colour coding yes, lowering yes

all in all yes worth it, not spending anymore though even though i want to
I think ill just be over the £1000 mark when i finish modding which will be within the next month then my clio is complete.
My clio doesnt look like its had over a grand on it but it has with the new leather 182 interior 172 alloys ,electric windows, pedals, white dials gearknob ,new mats, new rear light ,headlights and a couple of over little bits.

It will probably be about 1K now and it was definately all worth it.

2 Sets of wheels (Fronts on the first set buckled so I went black)
Eibach Pros
Custom Cat-Back Zaust
Phase 2 Rear Clusters
Silvervisions all round
Dynamique Spoiler
Dynamique Interior
Headunit and front speakers

Don't think im forgetting anything lol


  Clio 172 (Silver)
Exhaust £300
Wheels £400
Splitter £50
K&N £50
Lights, bulbs etc £100
Other bits n bobs £100

Totalling just over a grand.
  Nissan 350Z
Exhaust - £235 + £50 fitting.
Pads + Lines - £100 inc fitting

So about £385.

Worth it? Not sure. The upgraded brake lines have given the best difference so far.

I dont intend to spend much money modding though. I think i would rather save up for a different car than modding a car which frankly is pretty good out of the box anyway.
  AMV8, Mk1 Golf

lowering £350
Wheels £1000 inc tyres, fitting and 1 referb wheel
colourcoding and smoothing £350
172 rear bumper £50

dynamique interior, 15" wheels, dynamique spoiler, brakes, ice and the best mod Suspension were all worth it

Still alot i want to but its all exterior now - and colour coding interior so i think about another grand max!!

Maxogen - £280

Think that's about it! So nearly £1800. Couple that to the fact that I bought it for £12,000 new out of my own back pocket and it's worth about £6500-£7000 now.

So the car has actually cost me £7,300 over three years.

£20 on custom re-working of air induction based on std airbox with kn panel filter. so £70 in total physically.

£17.99 zx1 lube in engine, Millers Diesel Power Plus @ £6.99 a bottle. Coolant additive £10, soon to be zx1 high dose in gearbox, less friction, and less engine power wasted through transmission due to heat. that and zx1 in fuel all time now, and £295 on custom ecu tune soon.

So on the initial phase (after 2nd November) £375.00 + £17.99 a bottle of ZX1 (in fuel)& £6.99 per bottle of Millers DPP.

I only run on Shell Diesel Extra.

The results of doing all this are tremendous.
