My favorite under $50 mod I got for my car was this sunshade for around $30. It is absolutely awesome during hot summer days.

FYI-this thread is NOT filled with cheap mods!

By the time I add up what I've spent on a fog light, start button, LED's, dynamat, an oil cap, an undershroud, wheel locks and probably a few other things I'm forgetting, it gets expensive! LOL.

And none if it is installed on my car (which now has 55 miles on it) yet.

Each individual mod is cheap, not all of them together

This!

Yah, if you're just looking to get a couple of things done to enhance your ride, hen its easy on the wallet! If, however, you're just getting started....well then it's easy to blow a couple more pecos than originally intended!

I have yet to install mine, but people have said it does make things much more quite. I'm going to be stripping the rear + louder exhaust so I'm really only installing it for sound deadening (7 lbs vs 100's of lbs of dynamat sound deadening material). I'll also be getting black foam pieces to fill in any other area that the glass doesn't to let as little sound go through as possible.

Definitely the cheapest and 'coolest' way to reduce exhaust drone and road noise.

I posted this in the interior section as well.

I got bored today and masked off the Z on the sport kick plates and "painted" them with a metallic silver Elmer's painters marker ($3-4 at walmart). I think it turned out pretty good...
