if you had a gt that you didnt spend too much on that time and now ur spending a lot on ur gts, that means you want it to make it look better and you already like it. it shouldnt hurt you when you spend money on things you like, thats wut life is all about. i think of it that way, i had a gts for a day, it costed me 21,000$, i returned it and got a gts for 10,000$ and in order to make it look the way i exactly want it its gonna be 14 total. im gonna end up having a car that i like and spent less money on. so wut you spent a 1000$ on something you like instead of saving it? save some money some other time, or else work a little extra summertime and get that money back!
this month i spent my money on TPR CAI
, small stupid shits that add up to hundreds of dollars... redline tranny fluid 50$ shipped (3qts.), turn signal bulbs in the dash, white turn signal bulbs, white parking light, front and rear kam kit, c one style hoodscoop, TRD
springs, and so many other small stuff that i cant remember. these shit plus labor will end up being over a thousand. last month was HID, floor mats, 01 ecu, 01 knock sensor, ...
soon will be rims and tires, exhaust and headers.
the thing is that you have to know when to stop and put a limit.
