    How long?

    How long did it take all of you to modified your motors to the way they are now? I mean, I saw some mean looking motors on the AS stand and was thinking how much saving and scrimping was needed to buy all the parts and have them fitted

    Unless of course, you won the lottery or something

    You need to get yourself into an unbelievable amount of debt, then not go out of your house for 6-12 months while you try and payback the cash!!

    I've only had my car for 2-3months so not long - major body mods can take a while, which is why mine has been shorter !

    I've owned mine since 10th March, most of the stuff was done in the week before I took delivery of it. I've since added little cosmetic bits, nuthin much.

    A year minimum it seems, to make the car look stonking, if ya on a budget. At this rate, me motor aint gonna be ready for any shows for AS until PV2004 happens by the looks of things :shock:
