Include the cost of your car and all your performance and cosmetics, labor, etc. I will have right about $125k invested after the big turbo, 2.1L race build, and twin disc race clutch fuel oil and fluid cooling upgrades. 🤔

A few of you may be surprised once you add it all up, it quickly piles up when modifying.

4 OEM mud guards, rubber floor mats, liner for the hatch, and replaced the scratchy cloth arm rests and console. So, let's say $500, tops + the $22K to buy it in 2018. It's my civic and I love it.

I’ll do an edit for the exact amount of the Si... but I think it was maybe $24,000 or so. I financed 22.2k but I had some equity in my trade and saved a grand worth of taxes based on the trade. Funny how it all works

$600 V2 on (Black Friday sale)
$80 TSP Stage 1 tune
$80 PRL Stage 1 intake (on sale)
$400 tint
$90 Hikaris LED headlights (Philips)
$150 in sound deadening + tools
$50 for 2 6.5” speakers
$20 for Green Filter oil
~$80 for 4 oil/filter changes
$50 for wireless charger
$200 lifetime alignment plan
$40 Amsoil MTF

...so $1840 dollars in about 3 years minus gas? Sounds about right. Tires soon. These are about done.

So... probably around $26k.

I did find a bill for my initial refresh of that Z. $11k+ for a car I spent $7500 on. I’m at about $25k in it now.

New speakers with 2 amps and sub + work 1300e

at 30km i did 4x oil change with oil filters that is around 400ež
that is total of 27.750euro or 32800dollars...

and insurance here is around 900e (1100 dollars) per year...
i did spend around 2500e on gas ...

so total this car is

I thought this would be an interesting thread to see how much people are investing in their builds. Thanks to all those who have replied. There's so many unique cars here it would be nice if you included a picture of your car as well with the details just for quick reference on your build.

I think I'm at around $800. Only other thing I'm thinking of adding is the CTR subframe brace and maybe a strut bar. It's got enough go for my needs and handles pretty well.

If I have $100k I will get an Audi RS and call it a day.
Considering the Audi RS3 is $56k and it’s not a Civic build what does that have to do with $100k?
