    I only have "approved mods" on my current car, only had Milltek the CDTI kit and the Wavetrac on the Astra - mild not wild for me

    Some peeps can't say no, some peeps love it and wouldn't buy a car they couldn't tune/mod but it's not for me, spending £5k or £10k to "improve" a car I'd always think what can I get if I sell it and put the money on top

    IMHO tuning/modding is only a waste of money if you get nothing from it. I personally don't want the exact same car as thousands of other people.

    Think of yourself as an "Enhancer" as that's all that I do with my cars of late especially, the days of swapping out the whole suspension, complete aftermarket brake upgrade feel so long ago lol

    When you view those EVO forums etc the money people spend on them is another level. Plenty of them can afford a gtr but choose to put 10's of K into their evos instead.

    I suppose we're minor "enhancers" compared to many on the jap scene

    Suppose it’s like anything you do if you play golf you wouldn’t buy a set of £100 clubs if you where playing at a good standard and play a few times a week so you buy more expensive ones. Cars you might be able to get from 0-60 in 3 seconds but the max speed limit is 70 so we could all drive a 1L ford KA but we don’t we decide to spend 15k sometimes on a bmw or merc because it looks better sounds better drives nicer but you can still only drive 70. It’s all down to personal choice

    Personally for me it's just a bit of fun and feels good to put a unique spin on your car.
