Thumbs up

So ladies and gents, I'm curious how do you pay for your poison? To make the polling more accurate, here is each choice more clearly defined.

CASH: You save up the money for your mods and purchase them outright, either with cash or check. Once the purchase is made, you do not owe any more money. If you use a credit card (to order something off the internet for example) and pay the bill off completely at the end of the month, then choose cash.

CREDIT: You purchase your mods using a credit card and pay the balance off over time.

LOAN: You borrow the money from a lending institution (bank), friends or family.


Thanks
Ronin Z

+1 no way im putting mods for the car on a credit card, it really tells you how bad you want the mod if you are willing to save the cash to buy it.

+2 If I used credit cards to buy mods I would be in more debt than I could handle... I actually closed one of my cards when I bought the Z because I knew I would get myself into trouble if I didn't

I use my credit card for everything just to rack up more points for free stuff at Home Depot. I voted "cash" because I pay off the card every month.

I pay with a bank card, which is like paying with cash. But for the more expensive stuff, I'm going to start putting it on my credit card to help my credit.

I tried whoring my body out for mods, but after it took nearly 4 years to save up enough for an intake... I've since reverted to more conventional means.

When the motor blew I used a home equity line of credit to get the repairs on track. Other than that adventure it's been a cash deal.

I have excellent credit so I used a Credit Card that had 0% interest for 18 months to do many of my mods. Its almost paid off and have'nt paid a dime in interest. The Z is almost paid off as well.

Edit: Anyone lurking on here looking to info to steal identities, you are wasting your time with me cause I am freezing my credit as I am typing this. NO BS

Man, it F'ing sucks thinking about some Low life SCUM of the earth spending on others credit. What the hell is wrong with people
