How much money are you prepared to spend on mods for your car?

Does the fact that you don't recoup this when you sell bother you much? Do you set a limit and stick to it or do you just buy things as often as you can/need to?

I haven't spent much on the Cab yet but I'm takng it off the road at the end of the month and covering it up. I will be tidying a few bits up over the winter but I may just swap it at some point for something else.

Sometimes get a whim to do something, but depends on money available at the time. Not looking to recoup when i sell but if im getting the same type of vehicle again i may swap the original parts back onto it before selling

If by mods you mean anything mechanical being done to the car, then a little,usualy when somthing breaks i take the chance to fit somthing better, when replacing the air filter during a service i found a panel filter tempting. when it comes to replace the camshaft some mild/fast road cams might go in, it doesnt add any significant power on a small car like mine (worked it out, about 15hp, lol !) but it makes the car more individual, and makes it run a bit smoother. i recon this year ive spent less than a couple hundred mainly on bits just to keep it working.

I dont mind about the value loss, i plan to sell to my friends. so ill still get to enjoy it occaisionally.

I tend to look at budget a modification at a time - it scares me if I tally it all up.

Unfortunatly, I am a bit stuck at the moment. There is already stuff I would like to do to the R36, but my 'gap-insurance' policy states the car must stay standard :( :( !!

Additionally, I don't want to run the risk of voiding the Volkswagen Warranty in the first 3 years either.

Whatever is required :)

Not bothered in the slightest as I will never sell the car.

I'm prepared to spend as much as I need and want to on both of the cars. It's nice to have a budget for modifications thought, even if you don't stick to it :blink:
