OT Question but until then....

I think I calculated it last week that my mods so far have been around $1200 (got car in mid July, didn't find E46 till September or later = mod bug) so I guess that is a decent amount.

There are definately many more who have spent 1,000's..

I spent atleast $400 for my OEM clears and a bunch of new interior parts. But all that money has been from my BMW credit card reward points. Out of my own pocket, maybe about $50? lol i know im lagging behind.

I just really started modding about 3 months ago because I wasn't sure if I'm keeping it. So far I have spent $14,320 but the only ones installed are DDE's, 2 sets of wheels, and audio. So much stuff sitting and waiting.

Edit: Damn thats alot, maybe I should have sold it and bought an M3
