*Sigh* I remember when I was soooo addicted with modding cars...then I realized that it would take forever before I even got to drive, so I just decided to take an interest in computers.

It's fun to mod cars if you can afford it. With the right mods, you can feel a significant gain. Most people these days just put an intake or exhaust system and that's it. That really doesn't help much.

Once you start driving, you'll get hooked on modding again. Kind of like modding the crap out of your PC.

Yeah, I bet I will get addicted to modding again...after I have the money and time. I remember that I really wanted to mod a Subaru Impreza WRX STi....*sigh*....

hahaha, ya, most ppl just mod intake and exauhst cuz they too lazy to actually put some money and effort, plus they would rather go for "looks" nowadays, all u need is a nice body kit, lowering springs, and wheels for looks, cuz seriously all that dumb logo/vinyl shit on cars just pisses me off

those people with the stickers and vinyls with no performance are just ricers. Have you guys seen those new CHevy CObalts? Supercharged too!! It's got crappy performance but not bad for a little 4 banger. Looks nice. The WRX STi is so fast the way it is, I don't think you have to do any modification at all. That thing is beast on wheels!!
