Talking Damn, modding this car gets REALLY addicting.

Hi, my name is S3XPanther, and I'm a mod addict.

So now even the little things get to me, as I've just ordered a Drake shifter (looks amazing btw). I never used to care about things as insignificant as the shifter, but now I've got the bug BAD.


If this wasn't bad enough, a full ARH system goes on in a couple of months. Then, hopefully everything (funds especially lol) will be in order for a serious summer rebuild. I'm talking heads, hefty cam, FAST intake, throttle body, TC, and maybe even a new rear end.

Unfortunately, however, it probably won't stop there. Hopefully I don't get the mod bug as bad as DangeruSS.

Anybody else feel this way?

There's always stuff people like us want to improve and make it our own. Most people around me don't understand. But yes I have it bad, but I think it's great!

Agreed. Bought my car 3 months ago and said I would keep it stock, $10k later and I'm not even close to done.

Yea, that's pretty close to what I'm looking at.

Yep, this is the first car I've ever done anything to. Never been a "car" guy. I've never even changed oil in a car before this and now I've done more mods (albeit some very minor) than I can count on my hands. Very, very addicting to try and improve the performance of this car and to try and make it somewhat one of a kind.

I know how you feel man!! I'm an addict as well.

The wife even keeps a list of all the mods i've done along with $$$ amounts. I'm convinced she'll use it as leverage for something in the future.

Hell, try modding two cars! Everytime I do a lil something to my SS, my wife wants a new look to her Beamer. Her 740Li was twice (almost 3 times) what I paid for my SS. She's got all the bells and whistles, I got all the muscle.
