Default How much have you spent on mods for your Forenza/Reno?

Aside from the vehicle purchase price, how much have you spent (estimate) on upgrading or enhancing the look of your Forenza/Reno?

Jeebus exist3nce, that's some serious cash! You can give Kinkyllama a run for his money, right?

Those are some sweet wheels, though, colton. Awesome with the black paint and chrome scheme of the car. Looks $$$

~$2,000.
Not all performance.
A good chunk has been the sound system (Rockford Fosgate) and a new alarm system.

$0 ... lol

But I just changed jobs to one with twice the payrate and lots of overtime

Basic plans are tint (windows, tails, sidemarkers), gunmetal S emblems, intake, full exhaust/headers, UDP, grounding kit, lowering springs, black/silver lip summer wheels/tires, strut bars. Maybe a BBK... Most mods will probably happen in '08.

I don't see myself spending more than $3000 total in the end, unless I ever decide to go with a high-stall torque converter (if there is one?), and maybe then I could try advancing ignition timing (depending on how people's R&D go on that).. Who knows, maybe in 5 years I can have an auto Reno in the 220+ hp range.

Too much.


Thousands in spares alone. As an example I have 4 sets of wheels and over 30 tires*including ones on wheels* sitting in my garage.
