What would you do with the pile of money you'd have if you didn't waste it modding?

God knows I would be thousands of dollars richer right now if I didn't start modding my car. I don't mind though. I don't enjoy anything more than my car, so I don't really see it as money wasted. For me, it's money well spent. I have no clue what I would do with that money if I still had it though. I'd probably just buy and sell stuff on craigslist, that's about the only thing I could think of. Maybe I would buy shoes for me instead of shoes for my car.

What about you?

I'd blow it on cocaine and strippers.

I'd spend it on camera gear. The E90 has put a stopper in my bottomless camera toys money pit, but has opened a bottomless pit of its own.

I've spent none of my money on mods. It all goes to entertainment and the majority of it goes straight into my investment account. House is more important.

I ask myself that question a lot. Especially money dropped on past vehicles and mods.

Kind wish I saved it all and kept it in the bank for a house. Still happy with modding the bimmer. Just a little more mindful now.

I would only put the money into car I plan on keeping forever. I see it as an alternative to paying a car note. But maybe thats just me.

James hunt said something like this once.

"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered."

I didn't mod my car (other than matte black grilles, gift from the gf). I bought an e30 instead.

I might have wasted more money by buying another car. Modding keeps me happy with my current car.

Spend it all on my horses... already in the process of expanding one of our pastures and adding a second riding arena.

Sigh, same here. Been doing it for about 3 and a half years now. No end in sight. It's getting old.
