What has uncle sam done for your car lately?

Are any of you planning on spending some of your income tax money on modding your car? If so whats your plans? Mine is going to a catless turboback and a tune.

Sorry, I'm one of those bone heads that fills out my W-4 correctly so they take out the right amount.

My return wouldn't buy one of those stickers that you put over your airbag warning sticker to warn the girls to loosen tight clothing as this car is equipped with a turbo and the rapid acceleration can cause breathing problems.

My thinking is why give Uncle Sam an interest free loan? That always baffled me.

The sensation is as hard to forget as it is to ignore!!!

I miss the days of blowing money like that with my taxes. Now it's just used to pay off CC's that my kids helped rack up all year lol! Love the turbo back/tune idea though.

If I could afford the finance payment I woulda taken a red one all day. I was pissed when they discontinued it for 2013. I've had 3 red cars though lol...I suppose I should branch out!

I haven't gotten a refund in years.... If I don't OWE more taxes and actually get a bit of a refund I'll be putting it towards paying the car off.

Not about income tax, but our local WV laws changed and require lowered vehicles (prev only lifted vehicles) get a modified inspection sticker. It's about $15 more and only a few places in town do these inspections. Blah.

Although I didn't techincally use my refund to buy these things directly, I did get a Cobb Catback exhaust, and a subaru boost gauge with my credit card. Then used the refund to pay off the card. haha

The last thing Uncle Sam got me was a HKS HP CB Exhaust.
Actually Paypal got me that but now I have to pay Uncle Sam back.

Cobb Accessport Stage 2.
Rebuild in progress....
