No reason not to mod. The purpose of mods is to enhance performance, which can be done to either a manual or automatic, and to customize the appearance of your car. Basically to individualize it so it’s not like any every other car out there on the road.
Is boosting an automatic car worth it?

How can I make my car drive like new?
