I have included 2 pictures for you, the first is with the wheels when they came the original gun metal color and the second after i have painted them black.
With silver paint and black accents i have been doing, the black rims made the color scheme come together, is still have stripping to do but that will be something i will do in the summer.
The gun metal looks nice but even when they were clean they still looked a little dirty, in the first picture the rims and car is clean but just never looked cleaned. A lot of people liked the gun metal but i decided to go with what i liked so i painted them black and glad i did. In the second picture the car and rims are a little dirty since it was raining all week but i thought i would take a picture of the car for you, rain is still in the forecast for the next week or two, can't wait for summer.

Your $10,000 upside down on your car with another 5 years of $500 payments (=$30000) and you are spending $3000 on a supercharger and whatever else on your other mods? I don't understand how someone who is upside down on a car loan will spend more money on mods rather than paying down the principal and owning the car (or at least be ahead) before doing them. It really sounds like you got hammered on your purchase of this car- 84 month x 500= $42000 total of payments. Plus the cost of your mods you will never get back.
With that aside, sounds like a cool setup that will net you some great gains.
Then if i did trade it in after 2 years i would now have another 7 year loan for another car. This meant i would still loose the $10,000.00 plus i paid over the 2 years anyway and then add 7 more years for the other loan and the amount of that loan. This means i would end up having loans for another 9 years. By keeping the car and adding the expense of the turbo and future mods i will be out of debt in 5 years and the other 4 years i could put that money in the bank if i want.
And now i have a car that i now appreciate and enjoy keeping for the next 5 years or more, i am also looking forward to being out of debt in 5 years and not having any more car payments for a many years after.
Any way that is some of the may thoughts that went through my mind before committing to the purchase.
Regarding the price, the car is a pretty loaded SXT that retailed for $29,000, add on 6% loan finance charge, tax, license, extended warranty, gap insurance, and 45,000 mile covered maintenance plan and a few dollars to get me out of my other car adds up to the amount i spent on the car, a lot i know, but the car is a better family car than the one i traded in and fit the budget at the time.

Sorry if my message seemed harsh-you can't portray emotion through type! I was in your spot with a Ram that I owned-upside down and contemplating a trade. Instead I took my $2000 tax return (years ago) and called around to some credit unions. I ended up refinancing the truck with a lesser term (cut one year off my loan) and was able to cut my payments by $70/month-i kept paying the extra $70 anyways and the truck ended up being paid for in about 2 years sooner than I originally expected. You may want to consider refinancing-even if you don't put anything down, you will probably still get a better rate.
I just wanted to put in enough information that explained several angles of what i wanted to convey, i may of put to much info but also thought i might not have put enough if i did not put as much as i did.
When upside down in a loan it is always difficult to decide which way to go, for now i am excited about paying of the loan and being out of debt in 5 years.
I know that this is a rarity, but when i purchased my Charger, the dealership gave me what I owed on my truck ($27,000) and they didn't add it on to my car.... thankfully. I think they knew that they would be able to sell my truck pretty quick, in which they did... three weeks later. It was an 05 Dakota Laramie fully loaded, not to mention the addons that were on it.
It can be done, but not many dealerships are willing to work with you like that, this is why I've gone back to them for my last three vehicles that I've bought from them.
