To Mod or not to Mod?

I see alot of people on the site that want to modify their new camaro.
What about all the people that are happy with the way it works and looks?
I plan on putting CAI and CBE (brand?), but really love the looks of the Camaro as it is. If you have already done some send some pics.

I like my car the way it is. Only plans I have are tinting the windows. If I had planned on modding mine out I would've just got 1st Camaro I saw and not ordered it the way I wanted! Plus I'm over my racing days so my bone stock 2SS is more power than I will ever need or even think about using! But I don't fault anyone who wants to have the fastest ride out there. I just don't have desire to do any upgrades or at least not at this point! Maybe in a few years I'll hit my midlife crisis and go buck wild trying to feel like Im young dum and full of cum still! Lol! To everyone who still drives wild and crazy have fun be safe & keep the racing on the tracks!

Mine is on the train, and the "goodies" are collecting at home waiting for its arrival. Gotta make it mine. Cosmetic stuff like custom stripes, window tint, halos and HID's, bow tie treatment, but probably not the drive train....well, maybe not. You never know.

For me I said no. My thought is the engineers designed the car to run with all the parts it has as they are. I just feel going and changing this that and the other out with aftermarket parts doesnt do a body good.............Just my 2 cents......

It's not yours unless you make it yours. When you get a car, you get a car from GM. GM designers and engineers built it for everyone who would be interested in this segment, but you aren't everybody. You're you. You should be able to drive a car to your configuration, with the suspension that you want, with the sound system that you want, with the hood of your choice, and that loud exhaust from your favorite company.

auto customization--it's a billion dollar business. People want to stand out, make their car unique, apart from the rest of the pack, continuing to improve its look and performance, although some folks may not realize that they draw negative attention to themselves when they go overboard or put things on cars that doesn't make sense or exist. But, to each their own! I don't necessarily think that people truly believe they need all that performance, it's just a passion that people have for their cars and a pasttime that will never go away.

I love it the way it is.

No mods - maybe window tinting one day, that's it.

I've done a few minor appearance mods and have an Air Aid intake sitting in my living room. My plan at this point is to modify my 2LT/RS to get sea level performance out of it, since living near Denver is a real bummer for power.
