i wouldnt bother arguing with him, the mans a [email protected]Depends if your primary directive is the car's resale value. I doubt I'll ever own a 'standard' car - much in the same way that I'd redecorate and change any house I live in, I'd want to alter any car I own to my own specification - rather than just accept what's out there.Yep, take a perfectly decent modern car which still has a decent value, spunk a load of money on pointless tinsel and glitter, and end up with something worth less than it was to start with, that's totally dumb.i thought you said modifying a car was destroying it
All standard cars are compromises designed to appeal to as broad a cross section of the market as possible (which is understandable) but I don't want a car that has been 'averaged out' to give it mass appeal.
Sure you can comprehensively ruin a car by modifying it badly - but not everyone who modifies cars is a 'chav' or a 'boy racer'. You can also make a car look a load better (subjectively obviously), improve its performance and make how you want it.
And if you modify a car 'well' there's no reason for it to be worth less than the equivalent standard car.
