I Don't Get...

why some people spend good amount of money on weird body kits, really tall/big spoilers, and crazy paint jobs.

For example: I saw this kid with a <insert car maker here> with this crazy weird looking body kit with a bright orange paint with 2 racing stripes going down the middle of it in which the person added a really big spoiler as well. To add to it he had this really loud/annoying fart canon on it. Why couldn't he just spend the money on the engine first!? I even ran into him at a local sonic by my house and asked him do you race your car on the tracks and/or streets? he replied yeah and then i asked him what do you have under your hood he replied exhaust and CAI. Then i asked about the body style/paint job in which he replied it cost "$3,800". He said he was going for a performance car then a show car, in which i get it why people spend money on their show cars, but if your interest is in speed why would you go outside first then inside??

My Versa may sort of (not really) look like a street car but there is no way i would invest money on car mods to the engine for my car is auto instead i may just add some money here and there to make it to look nice, but i wouldn't go crazy with a wild/wacky paint job.

Opinions, outputs, perhaps you experienced something similar too, and note i am not bashing on these people just don't get it(if their top priority is speed).

You summed it up right there. Kids just don't get it.

When I had my '00 Civic hatchback, I started in this order lol: tint, sound system (speakers, sub n amp), front and rear lip, grille, catback exhaust, HIDs, lowering springs, rims n rubber. I prolly spent $2000 altogether. Unfortunately I got rear ended at the beginning of the year, got written off. Now I got the Versa and gonna do similar things slowly.

Ouch, yeah somehow that is one thing people can't prevail sometimes but i would never wish a misfortune on someones car/life.

But at least you didn't spend 3g's on a body paint and weird looking body kit and say you race around tracks and/or streets

I spent wisely, I think about the cost of something, then think of all the other things that money can be spent on. Most of my parts I bought for the civic were used though, but in good condition. I took the time to make sure it was done right. Other people would rush their shit altogether and it doesnt look right in the end.

Kudos to you and spending time wisely/carefully. To me it doesn't matter if you spent a 20,000 dollars or 2,000 dollars as long as it looks nice and clean as well as sound. Some people are eager to get their loud exhaust from a shitty place instead or somewhat researching their car and what best exhaust goes for it. I hate those loud a** exhaust that sound like a fart canon and people actually think they can beat any car out there because of it
