I no how u feel about doing stuff to your car. Once i just passed i wanted to do everything to my car that i could think of. Then i released it costs a hell of a lot and adds on value to the car and tbh messes up the chances of selling your car when it comes to it!

If you start adding stuff to your car it will increase your insurance no end as well. Doesnt matter if its not faster, if its not factory spec the insurance company needs to no as it makes it more attractive for people to steal.

I would spend your money on enjoying life instead of your car :D

cheap things like painting calipers upgrading lightbulbs, wind deflectors LED conversion

more expensive mods include lowering, body kit, alloys etc

Also changing air filter and destricting air box, induction kits, remapping or tuning, the list goes on

Best mod ever has to be an upgraded alloy tax disc holder :ph34r:

Also consider a magic tree and a nodding dog for the parcel shelf!

Why blow 1000's when you can spill a few pennies and have the coolest car ever!

I can only cite the experience of my own Son, who leapt at the chance to snap up a 1-owner HONDA CIVIC 1.5 ;-- city use by an old lady, for shopping trips, and a full history at one dealership. 25,000 miles, and priced at 2500. He spent good money on lowered springs, stainless-steel exhaust which lasted less than 2 years, fancy tail lights, and mercedes door-mirrors.
The car attracted some attention, it seemed, and got keyed on both sides, and someone fell over the bonnet producing a deep dent of quite some size, which had to be pushed out repeatedly.
Before he had 50,000 miles use from the car, at 700 p.a. insurance, some lout smashed the passenger-door window, for no gain, but cost my Son 300 to retain a clear N.C.B., as firms DO jack-up premiums despite protection.
3 months later the MoT failure was catastrophic ;-- full exhaust+CAT, + lots of work on the brakes.
The car was scrap._________
After 6 months cadging lifts, my wife and I found him a 5-year -old SEAT IBIZA 1.2 but we have been stung due to teething troubles which that engine suffered, without recall.
SO, in retrospect I would advise saving cash towards unforseen expenses. At least his insurance is only 350 p.a. now, and no problems since last September.

I feel a great mod is a private plate :unsure:
Really finishes off a car, and although expensive, there are a few cheap options :D
