Hey thought it would be a cool idea to start a compilation of cheap and/or free mods that can be done to our cars for those looking to tinker but lacking the budget for buying stuff to put on their car.

Right now starting with a list. People can post ones i haven't thought of or listed and any pictures and/or links to threads related to said mods would be great. Will eventually compile pics and links for all mods I can would be a great little resource for us with minimal expendable income or just a fan of DIY mods...
