I've been thinking about this a LOT lately.. Lets face it.. Roughly 80% of us car owners (JC Forums) are honest, full time workers on a 9-5/5 day week.l for one am STRUGGLING like hell to modify the VR.

For those of you that have larger rims 17's or higher, lowered with some engine **** done.. how did you do it? Bigger Loan?

Hmm how so? I own my car fully, I paid for everything on my car, An i did it mostly when I was working part time & school, or working. Now that i'm doing nothing (still looking for work) I'm barely doing anything.

When i was working I was lucky to be getting $250 a week clear, an still doing stuff....
You sacrifice things like going out, an buying useless **** you don't need, You save up an buy stuff you want/need.

Cheers

I know the feeling, i barely cover the cost of fuel. Let alone car mods, the most ive been doing lately is keeping the girl running well.

I'm married with two kids.
My wife hasn't worked for three years.
We have a mortage.
I take anywhere from $650-900 depending on overtime.
It can be done, like biggles said, it's all about saving.
We have a budget drawn up on excel which is an excellent way to map things out in advance, i found that since starting that about 18 months ago we seem to be able to do things to the commy here and there but it's become alot harder with rising fuel prices.

Cash only, spending money you dont have on mods is wasting money you will never see.

I'll be straight up and honest...

I haven't worked in almost 2 years. (I'm 20 and live with my parents, but I do alot around the house)

My car was brought for me and alot of the mods are paid by my parents.

I don't like discussing about how and why I have my car and the mods it's got, because I feel like a backstabbing prick to society, knowing there are hardworking souls out there, that don't have no where near as nice of a car, as what I have.
