    That's coz it's not an investment 5L. It's spending. Converting the fruits of your investment (time, labour, capital) into something you desire. Something that gives you endorphins! Like tonight. I spent ~$20 on a bottle of durif. The quid pro quo is, I feel great!

    The spend is the investment in feeling good.....as you've just experienced

    An investment does not have generate a financial return to be of benefit.

    The biggest financial loss I’ve had is the women in my life,now I spend it on cars,always looks good no mater what time of the day or night it is and you get to take it to the cleaners.

    Yeah, I get it mate. Seems like a bad investment now. Oh, my head.

    I've seen a few fake Rolex's that are very hard to pick from the legit versions...

    Anyway, back when i was in the car trade, we ignored mods when looking at a car for trade in purposes, especially mods which added nil value to the car. Even factory fitted options didn't help. I remember a chap had a VS SS as a trade in. this thing had been optioned to the hilt, and cost more new than a Clubsport. It was still an SS, and got the trade it value based on that....

    Mods won't really hurt the value (unless its distasteful) but as others have said you shouldn't expect the mods to add value
