Re: what would you do with 10k for car mods...

For 10k you could become a rather large player in the "import" and "re-sell" profession. After a year you could have 100k or more. Re-invest a couple more years, turn giant profits, tell the world to kiss your ass and do what ya wanted when ya got damn good and ready! Just a thought.

Re: what would you do with 10k for car mods...

blowing 10k on somethin that'll only depreciate in value is not somethin i would recommend. sit on it maybe get a house or do some kind of high interest savings account. but putting it into a 3 is not wise.

let us know wat u decide to do with it

He asked what to do with 10k on car mods not in life in general.

Honestly, I would get Sky's Super Advan ver2 wheels he has for sale in the F/S section. He's giving away $1000 worth of brand new Blitz gauges and accessories which is insane. I hate him..

Don't put it in to a car just bike a bike a stock bike is quicer then most modded cars anways and with that money you could almost buy a new ducati 1098 that will get you all kinds of ladies then you can have kids sell your bike and pop out a few kids but at least you can always tell your kids you owned a ducati

Motorcycle (Espically if it is a Ducati or even a Triumph) > mods for car imo

Re: what would you do with 10k for car mods...

Seriously. If I had 10k just to put into a car, I would check into some late 60's or early 70's muscle. For 10k you can by a great project vehicle w/matching #'s and have something that you could really work on. This too, will bring a return investment should you ever decide to sell. Money you will likely never get back if you put it in the 3.
