Sounds pretty decent. Just decide if you want to save more money each month for larger mods like exterior work or an interior system or spend a bit each month for smaller stuff.

In Canada I'm getting 800-1000 every two weeks (I'm 22) A lot of that gets saved but every month I spend like 200 or something on decent smaller mods but am saving for rims, exhaust and stuff like that to get next spring. Yah, it's a lot of money but less than I'd be spending if I smoked ($10.50 a pack here eek) or if I had some chronic crack problem. At least the money's going to a good place thumbsup

during the school year i make about... 450 every two weeks after taxes (i work about 20/week). but i`ve got a lot of bills... so at the end of the month i only have about 3 or 4 hundred to play with...

over the summer i make about 950 - 1000 every two weeks... (i`m 21)

I don't hate you. Insurance company employees have one big problem...

When they finish thier lifes work, and they retire, they'll have NOTHING to show for it.

Money sure does help, but when you have a lot of bills and a morgage payment, it goes really fast. I am in the Navy and I bring home about 3k a month. NOT a BALLER by any means, but it sure is nice to drive a celica.

I'm a network engineer and I make about 3200/mo gross. I'm 20, but about 75% of that goes to my bills, car payments, insurance, food, etc. Not quite sure where the other 25% goes, because I'm always broke. frown But I'm not doing any major mods to the car until its paid off. Some of the things I'm thinking about are: TRD/Vizage Kit, Rims/Tires, Exhaust, Lambo Doors, and DAS turbo kit. Any small mods recommended?

I'm in St. Louis and I make right around there, if not a little more. I'm 20 and a full time student also. That's okay money, but not too good if that's as high as you are shooting for.
