At what mileage should you stop modding?

I have 60k miles on my car right now. I'm pretty much finished modding my car since I cant afford many mods right now since I'm in college. My final mods that I have planned are Intake, header, and maybe HID's. After that I'm finished modding this car.

I was just wondering what you guys thing would be a good mileage to stop modding your car?

I have a lot of friends who still mod their hondas with like 120k miles on them already, and I think to myself, "why bother?"

^^i agree. i mean if you really love your car, when it breaks down just drop a new engine in. cheaper then buying a new car and you get to keep all the mods

I've at 78,000 and I just finished all my bodywork. Planning on tossing in a CAI and nitrous kit.
