Wink 930 Mods Addiction

Stage I mods 100% curable in most cases symptoms: starts out just looking for a little increase in performance.

Stage 2 mods 50% curable. symptoms: not just adding stuff, you start removing parts that you think you no longer need and you reason it will be lighter, faster. R&D is no longer an option. Only curable if all OEM parts are kept for the restoration process which can be painful. Credit card max, job loss can also slow the progression or help slow dependency.

Stage 3 mods cure rate less than 10% symptoms : increased parts selling, car becomes a shell of its former self at this point , maybe loosing interest in that other project, or can no longer drive the 930 because you can't remember when or if you finished your last mod. Also Mod recognition becomes difficult.

Stage 4 mods addiction there is no cure symptoms: getting to DE's can be dangerous without a trailer and tow vehicle. Its a special fuel needs car now, high octane increases that need for more power, got headers but your cold in the winter, hot flashes in the summer because A/C was gone long ago just to get weight off that big ass. And now your down to your last seat. The addiction can progress slowly now with multiple DE weekends for several years or completely spiral out of control and last a year or two at best club racing.

Listing your mods may not be for everyone : In some cases 930 owners have experienced anxiety,depression and hobby loss. And in some cases selling on craigslist, samba or evilbay. Should you experience any of these symptoms seek public transportation help as soon as possible.
