Default My first official mod will be Monday. GT500 SW

I tried to wait to make mods to the car but yeah that didn't work out. lol. So about 3 days after I bought the car I tinted the windows, 3 days after that I did a muffler delete. Now about a week ago I ordered the GT500 steering wheel and I'll install that on Monday after it comes in, maybe Tuesday at the latest. I have a road trip on Wednesday so I'm really looking forward to some time behind the wheel, literally. I blacked out the 5.0 badge and grill pony on Thursday after I washed and waxed the car and I'm very pleased.

I was actually able to stop myself from ordering the GT500 rear spoiler, lol.
I need an intervention!

Well, the first step is admitting you have a problem...

I just added the GT500 rear mini mud flap deals today and really like the look.

Haha, don't feel bad. I did the same thing. I've only had my car for about a month now and I've already done intake, tune, Prochamber, and MGW.

I'd say we would be your support group, but I don't think we'd do a very good job, hah!

The wife said no mods until I paid the car off....so I only ordered the GT500 spoiler, tint, full GT/CS conversion, intake, tune, and AMR 20's from AM less than 9 months of owning it.

The trick is just not telling the wife....oh and hiding the credit card bill.

Lol. She'll notice but selling my stock GT Premium wheel will offset the cost so she won't complain much.

my excuse is I go until something "needs" replacing. Coming up on 65k miles, means I "need" new shocks and struts.....and since you get those, gotta get the springs at the same time; and of course, if you're gonna pull the suspension down, might as well go all out and get the LCA/UCA and sways ...... its bad man

Lol. I told her the leather steering wheel burns my hands. Alcantara won't do that. And you wouldn't want my burned, scarred hands touching your smooth beautiful skin right? So I'm doing this for you, not me! She rolled her eyes. Lol

. I just bought new rims with my own personal money...but rims dont work without tires do they? Guess Ill have to buy those. And tires arent "safe" without the TPMS sensors right? When will I know a tire is low on air? So better buy those too.
