How in the hell do you guys afford all the mods?
I'm mainly talking about the people on here who have expensive rims, bodykit, etc. I can understand if you are an adult with a great job, but there are a lot of teens on here making minimum wage who buy all this stuff.

My car payment, insurance, and other bills pretty much take up my paycheck each month. frown

Don't get me wrong, I am definitely very thankful for all I have, but I'm just wondering how some of you do it confused

Well you gotta think, most of these kids you are talking about arent paying for anything. THeir parents bought their car and pay for their insuarance. And all that money they are making at McDonalds is going strait into their car.

I pretty much don't buy anything besides stuff for the car, and even that takes a while. It's 4 yrs old now and it's not even close to where I want it to be. wink

Yeah, its not like we buy all this at once... Its a work in progress. save up for rims, when you get them start saving up for you CAI..and so on. I would say I get a new thing about every month.

Hell yeah. This semester alone my school took away $600+ from my paycheck that I could have used for mods.

600 on books alone? How many classes do you have? 10? I go to a university so the book prices should be about the same if you go a university too. How many units are you taking this semester?

I'm not hating. Just be lucky you have your insurance paid for every month. And it doesn't matter if you are a teen; I'm a teen and I pay all my bills too. I also go to school full time and work full time (40 hrs/week), so I definitely give the effort. As far as my goals, I reach them also (even though it may take a while). thumbsup

SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!!!!!!! Me and my wife make sacrifices little things instead of going out to eat we'll eat in or spending money on other things we put it away. I mean I've had my car for a year and all I have is exhaust. If it wasn't for her and my family chipping in I wouldn't even be getting my body kit soon. Just be patient all good things come to those who wait.
Just spend smart you'll get there!

All right here is one for all you youngsters out there. My first car I bought for about 500 bucks...1983 Ford F-100 suppose to be red but it was brown. I drove that for the majority of highschool. Talk about a POS, that thing was a gas hog, to save fuel I used to shut off the engine and drift down hills then start it back up at the bottom. It was so rusted up that my friends told me my car had cancer. The only mod I did to that thing was tint the windows so noone could see me in it.

I paid my dues in the F-100, now im driving my celica which will be running 7lbs of boost before Xmas rofl

yup.. pretty much just save every little bit you can. it takes forever, but when you finally buy a mod, man its worth it. just keep a good eye out for good buys (the for sale forum here is great).

had my car for a year without plans to mod until i found this site. read up on stuff and then just spent almost $1300 within a month or so on mods and haven't bought much since hahaha grin

and yeah, i have to pay for school too. almost bought rims but i had to pay $1600 for the first quarter this year plus about $350 in books so no rims frown all that was after my financial aid and loans kicked in.

I have two cars, but no car payments on both, my insurance is low as hell, and my income a year is a hefty amount, figures i have two paychecks coming in, my wife and i, but i also have other sources of income. I also dont have to save for retiremtn, becuase the navy will give me 2500 a month when i retire, which will be at 40 year of age, so after that, ill get a guaranteed 2500 a month. then if i get a small job im set, so i have a big source of income, that helps me out, but i also have to set aside money for the wife and kid, but i still have enough left over, i do my things and have my ways!! But saving, is important!!!

When I buy a car, I usually figure some mods into the price. For example, if I had $10k to put down on a new car, and I knew I wanted a $1k stereo... I'd probably put $9k down and get the stereo right away. That's pretty much what I did with the Celica.

Other than that, just save. Everyone wastes money here and there... just need to be more thoughtful.

my car is pretty much stock, i have had it for 3 years, after working 3 straight years to get it... no pay all money went into the car... now i work for insurance and mods and enjoyment of life... (im 18)

currently i dont have huge mods though i would like them...

i usually look around for good deals online, no way can i spend 1.5 grand on a coil over system! but i might be able to find springs, then struts and shocks seperately and bring them all together.

most recent mod of 70 dollars for m-tecs... largest mod (most expensive) would be the stero (but im in the car more then iam outside, so why not spend the money and make it comfortable)

I work at a law firm full time, and go to school full time...I save for things as I need them...I pay $600 a month total between insurance and car payment...no financial aid...and I'm saving to get engaged (SHHHHH)...I would love to have a kit and a few other things, but certain things take priority...I have a problem with saving...so what I do is I give myself a budget out of each check, and put the rest (in cash) in to a locking safe at my house, and my girlfriend keeps the key, so if I get the urge to do something nuts (Import a $3000 bodykit) I talk myself out of it before I end up with access to the money

I'm in the Army which is definately more than a full time job which pays like a part time job! I pay over $600 in my car payment and insurance every month and have a combined phone and internet bill that runs about $100 a month. Each time I get paid I put at least $100 in my savings and use that money for BIG purchases(lambo doors, rims)... Hopefully the body kit will be next!

Yeah, work and school is kicking my ass. I hardly have time for mods. Even when I do have some cash, I end up spending it on something else, like my other bills. I just got a new apt. also, so that will take away a huge chunk of my income.

Other than that, I am really trying to save up for a nice CD Player, like something in the $150 price range, haha.

Is cool tho, since I paid off the car already, I can save up for mods instead of saving up to pay off the car thumbsup

oh i am glad someone posted something like this because i was wondering the same thing. I mean i like it when the people on here say they work their asses off but still put the money into their car. That is the way it should be. I go to school, work about 30 hours a week and try to save as much as i can. I even use a little of my school refund check to get some stuff for my car. It is definetly a gradual thing because it is hard coming up with the money right away sometimes to buy this expensive stuff.

I have a 1K put away right now and im gonna get lowering springs new shocks, 7.5lb flywheel, headers and a short shifter with it.

Don't get me wrong, I am definitely very thankful for all I have, but I'm just wondering how some of you do it confused


Don't worry about the spoiled teens, that car is yours, you pay for it. everything you work for you should cherish because you purchased it with your money not your parents. most teens with the hooked up car thousands of dollars in the cars will be the same 30 year old man or woman living at home, and thats the truth. just finish school get that good paying job and get all the mods you want thumbsup

I am in college and I put a large portion of my money towards my car. I am in the process of getting my Veilside FF-GT kit put on and I am about to get lambo doors. I make 6 dollars an hour but it takes me a long time to save up.

I go to school and work. I also pay for all my bills too. I have to pay for insurance, car, gas, phone, school, everything! I just make a lot of money bartending. Thats how I can afford everything. I make more than normal bartenders because I have friends that come in and tip me lots of money.
