How much money have you spent modding your car?

Title says it all, lets share our stories with each other ! I'm currently in the introductory stage of modding my car. I'll start first:

1. Gloss black roof $650

2. Blue tinted back windows $130

3. Rear roof spoiler $350

So far total: $1130

Planning to get some Vertini wheels (19s) soon with a set of new All season tires. Looking to lower it also with h&R springs. Total i'm looking is around $4000 with alignment and taxed in.

What about you guys? How much $ have you guys spent on modding your car so far?

Figure another $1k or so to rice it out. One day I will supercharge it, though, and God only knows how much that will be.

lift kit was $3500
6000K hids for the fogs + lowbeams + high beams was $350
VHT nightshades for the rear taillights was about $25
Exhaust shop charged me $90 to cut off the exhaust after the cat for the drag racer rumble
Annoying the fuck out of revscene members, and secretly going to meets and doing burnouts? Priceless.
