    So you arent a millionaire, well there's plenty of subtle under $50 mods you can do when your feelin the money pinch. Some are cool, some are practical.
    These are all easy search items on the net or quick purchases at your local hardware store.
    You got something I missed? Throw it in this thread.

    Dude, this is an awesome thread idea. Wow. They should randomly allow us low rep members to blast big reps once in a while cause I don't feel my two points is enough for this. Awesome. :TU::TU::TU::TU::TU:

    And of course I have to spread em around. Lol

    Good thread man. Always good for people to know the cheap mods that won't break the bank yet still add pop.

    Velocity,

    Add G2 caliper paint to your list. A kit can be had for $37+ and it makes a huge difference! This one takes a bit of elbow grease, but it's one of my favorites, more-soif you consider the under $50 part!!

    I wanted to paint my calipers the same shade of red as my R/T badges, but the thought of jacking my car up, taking off all 4 wheels, prepping and painting the calipers while masking everything off and waiting for it to dry makes me not do it. Damn I'm lazy. LOL :(
