    I think modding is important to keep the car fun. Sure you could buy a faster car but the excitement always flatlines at some point. When I first got my car I was blown away by its power and agility. Now after a few months I have gotten a lot more comfortable with it and more confident in my ability to handle it but I want some more straight line power so I'm going to mod it in hopes of beating one of those new camrys off the line

    It's the process that's rather addicting. The process of identifying a certain something in your vehicle that could be "improved" from factory, doing the research/hunting for a valid solution, then actually doing the install. The satisfaction from your fix totally fuels the next one and the cycle continues. Plus most of us are dudes. Dudes like things. Complicated things!

    I know its not quite the same but whenever someone questions the insanity of modding cars i relate it to someones house. The same reasons someone paints their front door, renovates a kitchen, or puts in a swimming pool. It makes something your spending your time and money on more enjoyable for yourself, weather its for looks, laughs or functionality.

    I have always been into making things more effective or efficient whether with car, motorcycles, my budget, my house, etc. I can't think of anything I own or do that I haven't modified in some way. Problem is I just like cars more than everything else.

    I definitely don't like modifying my dishwasher or ironing board that's for sure. No pleasure in that...now my car on the other hand....
