Ok, ALL of you know how new I am to this whole "modding Michelle" and shit. BUT WHY THE FU$% DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO DAMN EXPENSIVE?????

C'mon, I just spent $700 on her stupid ass this past weekend. Shocks here, struts there, new tires for her stupid ass because she wants to **** up her alignment! New alignment! Then I see the molding from the bumper start cracking, I just realized that when Pete put my wing back on from painting the car that he didn't put back 2 bolts, (one on each side) IT HAS BEEN RAINING LIKE CRAZY IN VA! So now my whole trunk smells like ass on a hot day in Mexico City. Then I get called out because I didn't try to race this homo in a ****ing Jetta b/c I had my son in the car!!!! WTF, I'm crazy, but I'm not STUPID... I'm not gonna risk getting a MASSIVE ticket b/c I have my son in the car.

I don't even know if I want to do this anymore. I mean, EVERYONE in Hampton Roads has a DAMN HONDA!!!!!!!!! and no one takes me seriously!!!! :angry4:


I HATE THIS CAR... I HATE THIS CAR.... I HATE THIS CAR!!!!!

why hate the car? do you even care about racing? I mean so what if you didn't race a jetta if you did what would it prove? fuck all the haters... also put some air fresheners in the trunk... or maybe try lemon scented oust.

I'll be the first to admit, I'm new. But how the hell am I supposed to learn anything if no one will take me seriously? Ok, so I got the Haynes manuel, ok so I got the Nismo shit... SO! It is still confusing at times. I am interested in racing, I'm far from racing status, but I also have other things on my plate first. My son comes in first. I wish I could spend every penny on the car...

Your right, I don't hate the car, maybe I didn't think it would be as expensive as I thought it was going to be when I first started out. The headers, FINE, the cat back, FINE, the intake, FINE ... but damn.... TIRES COSTING THAT MUCH SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!

I got Yokohama somethings...I had the same tires before and they said that upgrading wasn't an option right now due to finances, so to get the same would be better.

LOL I am going to jump on this "lady with issues" band wagon. If your son comes first, you need to concentrate less on modding your altima.

Your car was black, kit painted and all like 2 weeks ago, then you spontaneous paint the whole car some stock looking red which i see as a totally unnecessay expenditure. How much was that paintjob? $1500? If you'll continue making moves like that dont be surprised when the bills start adding up.

lol that's the good side of the car. it was in need of a paint job guys. the other side was covered in bondo, maybe not an entire paint job but the one side of the car did need painting and a few touch ups around it. but i agree, spending money on stuff like that is a waste.

1 - I'm far from having issues, thank you very much. I'm probably one of the coolest person you'll ever meet. I have a good head on my shoulders.

2 - In the hampton Roads area it is difficult to get a guy that does know anyting about cars to help you out. He just thinks you are trying to hit on him, or that you are trying to get attention.

3 - painting the car was necessary, that red isn't exactly stock ... the money to paint that car came w/ taxes (being a single mother, I got $4,000's plus, so no big deal) Ask anyone who went to the Richmond meet.. IT WAS IN NEED OF PAINTING.

4. The tires are 17's

5. I make good money and it isn't a problem to fix up the car... my son needs NOTHING, I need NOTHING... I live at home c'mon.

I guess with everything happeneing at once ALL in one weekend took me off guard. I didn't realize how expensive it would be. 2 years ago, I would have coaxed my father into changing my tires, or oil, or whatever.



Ok, maybe I kinda mouthed off... but it is so frustrating trying to learn everything on you own!
