With Winter on It's Way, and the Year Near Its End, What Have You Done to Your Car?

Well guys with winter coming very fast and the end of the year, It's time that we look at what we have done to our cars in a year and to our future mods! For some of us, it is time to put the cars away for the winter and that only means one thing! A car that is able to be moded in a nice little garage.

So tell us what mods you were able to get this year, and your plans for next year! Were you happy with what you were able to accomplish? What do you wish you could have done?



I'll start, with this year being the first year I've had my car, I am amazed of what I was able to do to my car, and the way it looks now from before! I got my bank account to prove it unfortunately! This year I had allot of big ticket items to buy, due to buying my car bone stock with no extra options! I can tell you I've probably spent 5000$ this year easily. Rims, tires, coilovers, lambo doors, electrical window conversion, ss door panels... The list goes on.

To sum it up, I am really happy what I accomplished in a year, This year I really concentrated on the visual aspect of my car, I really needed the tires rims and suspension. I love how my car is now power everything over manual, and the new ss panels are looking good!

The only thing I can say I regret, is spending so much money this year. XD

Was a big year for Janey, punched out some dents and dings and repainted half the car. CAI, full exhaust, FE5 shocks and fancy springs. Best investment I made this year was a new set of X-ice xi3 tires. I don't plan on putting her away for the winter, if anything winter gives me a chance to practice my rallying (which needs alot work if I'm honest) I don't believe in babying a car. Future mods? Plan to complete my bolt-ons and get a tune, along with maybe picking up some My Little Pony decals or similar, just because I can

This was my first year with it. Got my sound system done, rims, headlight retro, tail light retro, and some smaller stuffs. Could have it most of the way paid off if I used the $$ to pay on the loan instead of the fun stuff.
