I used to do it for those reasons, until it dawned on me that when all was said and done, it was a big waste of money.

Luckily I came to the same realization that Paul did before I spent a dime on mods. I figure my Legend is worth at best $4k - sure not worth putting anything extra into it. I keep it OEM and prefer it that way. On the other hand, to each his own.

I agree...

All I'm gonna do is fix what's wrong with my Legend (i.e. bad ABS system, dead window motor etc...). The car already rules so why mod? :D

Unless your ALB fix is not major, I wouldn't bother. ALB was a trap to sucker us owners into spending up to $1000 to fix it when in fact it isn't needed at all.

Me, I disconnected mine and I'm $1000 richer!

I mod mine for the fun of it and they aren't expensive either.
I have a DIY intake that was 30 bucks and sounds pretty good.
...DIY grille 75 cents
...DIY gauges 8 bucks
i wanna smoke the orange lights in the back and that's about it.

I Mod, therefore I am.

I have never owned a vehicle that I did not MAKE my own in some way or form. I strictly enjoy moding. With a car such as ours, it is almost a form of art as there is much more to it than just throwing a credit card at it and bolting on parts. Most of the things we do, we create/adapt ourselves. Modding makes my car stand out from others. I look at it and appreciate the work that I did, and derive great satisfaction from being able to say that I did all the work myself. I also like it for the puzzle aspect. I want to do "THIS" so "HOW", "WHAT", "WHERE", "WHY does it need to be a certain way", all need to be answered to achieve "THIS". Never much considered the "WHY" to do it in the first place. Might as well ask "why race", "why they make so many different type of vehicles", "why not take the bus", etc .

Modding is a way of life to me. :cool:

Just to clarify

I guess I need to clarify what I meant earlier when I said "I don't mod." I really meant to say that I don't mod anything performance wise. Exterior and interior stuff only. Ya know, like seat covers and a new stereo or for the outside: foglights and new wheels. I agree with Bukowski that making a car your OWN is important.

WHY MOD?????????????

Modding a car is like making a statement about ones self. It gives you a chance to say something to the world that mere words can't describe. It gives you a chance to stand out from the rest of the legend owners. When I'm driving my G1 coupe I have had so many people say to me I saw your car here or I saw your car there. Yes there maybe many red G1 one legends but, no two are the same. Modding a car is like putting together an outfit. You are only going to put things together that make you look good and the same thing goes for anything else you do. When people see your car they see you and when you've done it right and everything come together all you are going to get is stares and people wondering how can they make there car look like yours. Like BUK said modding is a way of life. You can put two stock Legends together side by side and people will say those are some nice legends but, put two well modded legends together and people start to get inspired by your work. I drive around town alot and I rarely see a modified legend. I've had men and women alike come up to me and tell me how much they love my car and how nice it is and when I take them on a high speed run they are left with that OH MY GOODNESS THIS CAR IS FAST, feeling. Modding a G1 is like Modding a work of art. If you do it right it will only get better and it becomes more priceless than ever.:D
