      Lol who's doing your air installs 7k for a run of the mill BR kit? color matching wouldn't be more than 1k, roof $400, wheels if they're real 3k max for all of labor. I'm still waiting to see where the wheels came from, either VRwheel if they're real or probably DFW if they're reps.

      If you pay over 1k for aftermarket car audio these days you're diw. Car audio is one of the most trafficked form of electronics.

      I use to have stickers but realized they were gay just in time to remove them. I don't mind the occasional clever sticker but the played stickers like " no fat chicks car will scrape" are just... Not hipster enough.

      Pretty certain I have seen this piece running around town.

      Also, in regards to the labor rates, the dad had the work done at a pretty high end shop. I have had work quoted at RPM before and they charge premium hourly rates.

      i'm not saying that's what i would pay, but for someone who doesn't know to shop around and just says "give me the best, put it on the card" i could see where you'd get 20k in mods, is all.

      for clarification, i couldn't find this "RPM" shop in PA as mentioned in the posting, so i don't know what their labor charge might be. lets assume $75/hr

      autopilot V2 kit is $2500 from bagriders + 10 mhr install = $3250, so i was wrong by about 2X. if those had been bagyards instead of bagriders (my mistake) - $7k easy.

      body work could be the amount i listed if they removed, prepped, shot the body parts, then blew the roof, and reassembled. all depends on what route the shop took to do it. done "right" is way more than just spraying color on the car. all at $75?/hr

      if the wheels are real, it makes a difference, but still. 2k for reps, 4k for real.

      also, i agree about the "ICE". still those subs ARE $600 EACH! that's $1200 before amps, monstercable (most likely), full range, and the nav unit. plus install

      also, "we paid $41,000 for the car, aftermarket products and the new cluch"
      19k car + 2k clutch = 19k in mods.

      i'm not saying it's a good way to spend the money. i mean, he's got at least ten grand under that hood. just saying the previous estimates were a little low.

      *edit*

      $7K for air install?

      $3k to spray a roof and a front and rear lip?

      where the hell are you getting these prices? that whole list is absurd.
