Poll: How much have you spent?
#1156151 - 01/28/06 12:21 AM

Without including "regular" maintenance such as wear & tear / breakdown repairs, oil changes, plus & wires, brake pads, etc. How much have you spent on your Contour?

Examples would be tint, stereo, adding SVT UIM, LIM & TB to a non-SVT, wheels & tires, brakes, bulbs, forced induction, custom work, paint, etc.


Since you have owned (or during the time you owned) your Contour / Mystique, how much have you spent in modifications?
More than $25,000
$23,000 - $24,999
$21,000 - $22,999
$19,000 - $20,999
$17,000 - $18,999
$15,000 - $16,999
$13,000 - $14,999
$11,000 - $12,999
$9,000 - $10,999
$7,000 - $8,999
$5,000 - $6,999
$3,000 - $4,999
$1,000 - $2,999
$1 - $999
$0 - No mods / all "free" mods!

I put $15,000-$16,999 because I bought 2 different supercharger kits, had 10 different exhausts, 6-7 sets of wheels, the list goes on and on.

Hah. Not including the thousands of repairs I put in, my Contour remained for the most part stock. Only mods were a Clifford Matrix alarm (of which I sorely miss ) and two headunits (one POS Aiwa and another Alpine my sister bought). The majority of repairs are listed after the pictures in this topic.

Hmm... the big mods I have so far were rims/tires, which was around $600, and new brake stuff, which was around $500. But counting all the little things, I'd say that would be another $750.
