Stil Posted July 8, 2006 Share Posted July 8, 2006 Hiya guys i have read quite a bit of mags that talk about car modifications and customising, but they never tell you how much the mods cost. now from research i am begining to realise that tuning is no longer for the guy flipping burgers who wants his old banger to able to out perform like or better than a newer flasher sports car (so to speak), because the mods (D.I.Y) cost just as much as mid range porsche 911, alfa romeo and renaults. now my question. Is tuning just an expression of brand name parts that i can afford and you cant hence, it makes me a better tuner with enhanced credibity, because you cant afford not even the paint to start with and do manufacturers realise this and capitalise upon it in thier pricing and products ? Is it possible to tune a civic to out perform a 360 (ferrari) in terms of handling/braking and acceleration at a fraction of the cost and when i say fraction i dont mean 7/8th rather like a 1/10th of the price. because to me this was what tuing symbolised.
