Car enthusiasts across the U.S. make modifications to their car. Some are simply cosmetic, but others affect the car's performance. There are tons of car modifications that are totally harmless, but others are likely to get the car's owner slapped with a ticket and fine because the alteration isn't actually street legal.

Here, we'll look at some of both. We'll start with the legal ones first. (Of course you should check the laws in your state as they can vary.)
