Example text

This chapter helps address the evaluation process that precedes any successful car modification plan. Choosing a Car The choice may not be a choice at all, but a default “to mod or not to mod” decision based on what vehicle you already own. However, if you’re shopping for a new car, or you can afford to buy a car just to mod, the process is perhaps more critical because you want to choose a car that’s appropriate for a particular use or set of uses. Part of choosing a car to modify — whether or not it is one that you already own — is identifying its uses and assigning percentages.

If the dealer cannot prove such a claim — or it proffers a questionable explanation — it is your legal right to demand compliance with the warranty. The Federal Trade Commission administers the Magnuson-Moss Act and monitors compliance with warranty law. That being said, if you choose to modify your car, and suddenly the fancy new electronic control boxes that you added to your car make it run rough, not start when cold, or buck like a bronco, the dealer can and will charge a diagnostic fee to find out what is wrong with your car.

On the flipside, sometimes a car will have all the right ingredients, but it simply doesn’t have a high volume of aftermarket support, never really having caught on as a popular platform for upgrading. Here, the car gains points for uniqueness when someone finally appreciates its true potential and shows the world what the car can do, but generally the cost in sourcing and fabricating components is financially and logistically prohibitive. When in doubt, it is helpful to look into enthusiast clubs for the particular make and model of car you are seeking to modify.
