i started off my camaro adventure with a "serious" 25k budget. i pushed it a little further to spring for leather interior and the bluetooth and all that (2lt).

i thought i was done but like most of you, i just couldn't help myself down the road. i saved up (had a better job at this point) and threw about $1,000 at it for a magnaflow exhaust system to bring out the sound.

other than that, the black emblems cost like 75 bucks, and i got a K&N air filter too. modest compared to some of you but still plenty more than i planned on spending on day one

LOL.... That is TOO true!! It does turn out when I point something out to him and we don't get it right away you seem to all of a sudden have it?!? Coincidence? I don't think so! lol Also if you get something then all of a sudden he wants to get the same thing but slightly different... Ugh, it is never ending! lol

I need to separate you guys!

Paint job - 4500
AAC Halos - 300
Headers, Midpipes, Catback - 3500
Tune - 500
CNC Throttlebody - 150 i think.
Tires- 1600?

10,050 if I did the math right.
JESUS I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS THAT MUCH.
Something must be wrong here.

And to think I'm about to go out and buy a CAI and Whipple.

Hey it's all good. I have spent some on mods so far for my Camaro. Have had the car a month now and engine bay looks nothing like it did on delivery day. But in the grand scheme of cost it pails in comparison to the 90k i have spent on buying 2 new cars in the last 9 months. But hey, everyone has to have a hobby so if modding is it then so be it. Who cares if it doesn't add value to the next person. Neither do most home improvements these days but that didn't stop me from adding on a whole new lanai and all new sod either.

I have spent over $14,000 so far and still have about another $5k to go to get where I want to be... I love this car but it is a huge money pit.

I dont think C5 made me spend and more or less, Well I guess it did because of the ideas I have seen on others cars on here, And being that I bought a set of tires and wheels from a member on here that has to add towards mone spent, Im about 4k into it so far with more to come soon

I have purchased 100% of the mods for Veteran1 from vendors right here on Camaro5, and it's safe to write that combined, you could by a 2011 1LT with the funds.....

They saved me money, considering I would of ended up doing the same mods at twice to cost, I'm sure I would of bought something that looked good on the net but not on the car, then the replacement part to make it look right again..
