#9 of 17 for me its...

Although not having actually owned a car yet (although I plan to soon) there a several reasons I want to.
I love taking stuff and making it my own; my comp is covered in sharpie ink and sticker, and my desk has stuff etched into it. I love creation, taking something or nothing and making a creation I dreamt up a reality. Like people above me said, you can look at it and be proud of it and get a feeling that you accomplished something. Besides, cars are art (in all aspects; the engine, outer aperance, and the interior.) , and whats better then adding your own personal touch.

Take a look at the Mazda RX-8 vs the Mazdaspeed RX-8
#11 of 17 More Customized than Modded

I have just about every OE accessory in the book. Though mine is more customized, as the engine was kept stock.
Why? Add utility. Why not? It can do more tasks.

I modify usually for performance . Usually suspension and brakes first, and then power later on. If your car can't handle and stop, no point in adding power.

Same here. Brakes, Tires, Suspension first. Then power later on. If you can carry speed through turns you need to slow down less and therefore will be overall faster w/o extra power.

Although I agree that car engineers have put a lot of time and thought into the design of the vehicle, but I like to make things better.

Modifying a car is like burning money. As far as an investment is concerned, it is about as dumb as it gets.
BUT, they never stopped me - lol
I go for power....I generally prefer the "go fast" over the "looks fast" mods. For me it is about making something mine and I enjoy the engineering aspects of it. I approached my current modded car with a plan. I think a lot of people just throw things at a car w/o thinking or because they heard something works.
