    To mod or not to mod?

    Do you guys like to leave your vehicles stock or mod them abit? Do you mod nearly everything or just a few select items? I put an axelback exhaust on mine because I wanted a throatier sound, I already knew the gains were minimal if any but I like it, now just need to change the ugly antenna.

    My WRX is pretty heavily modded.. and in turn, it's pretty unreliable too.

    Strange, I hear that the wrx is very reliable unless of course you're hard on it.

    Stage 2 power mods is all for me. Ill do other things like suspension and bushings as they wear out. Replace and upgrade at the same time. When im in a secure financial position with another car to drive that is not an 84 Chevy truck, Ill shoot for about 300whp and keep it as a half fun car, half daily driver. So, 3-4 days a week I'll drive it.

    Yeah that's usually how I go, when something wears out i'll upgrade it to something better then stock. Good way to go, slower process but easier on the wallet.

    No 600+hp WRX is reliable, I don't care who tells you otherwise. Every aftermarket part is another possible point of failure.. mo mods mo problems.

    If it takes me more than a weekend to revert back to stock, whichever car I own at the moment, then it wouldn't be my daily driver.

    Guess it just means I modify to a certain point, that's it.

    If he cannot revert back to stock within a weekend, then he would not daily drive it. So, if he daily drives it, he would only add parts that he can take off easily in a weekend. If he does not daily drive it, then he has no condition.

    ...Yep
