    What Who & Why


    We help you sell your car and find your next toy. Starting in 2012, motorcycles, used & new parts for sale at amazing prices. We're building the ultimate driver's marketplace.


    Depending on the time of day and whether you count the office dog or not, we are a small team of 3 to 6 people... And we love and have built sick machines. It's a lifestyle and we live it daily.


    We all love our cars (you know, love the one you're with). But to stay fresh and keep the passion going, you'll eventually want to find a different challenge... a new thrill. Many sites exist to help you find commuter cars with 800 mpg, 6000lb boats on wheels, and other uninspiring boxes. Modified was conceived as a marketplace for like-minded gear heads who demand more from their machines. A marketplace that acknowleges horsepower and torque. A marketplace where instead of being something to hide, mods are exactly the point. I built modifiedcartrader in my tiny apartment back in 2003 because the bays and lists don't understand car culture. We live it and it's for this simple reason that we exist!

    We Love To Hear From You

  • about you

    Your Data & Privacy

    So we run ads on the site and the ad networks (Google is not just a search engine, lol) are pretty skilled at what they do. Not that it'll make any sense to anybody but it's something about web beacons and DART cookies, and... Read the full brief below if you care.

    Our Commitment To Privacy

    Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

    The Way We Use Information

    We use the information you provide about yourself in your profile or when placing an order only to for that purpose. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that profile/order.

    By listing a vehicle or other item for sale on this site you are automatically registered. This gives you access to edit and update your information at a later date if necessary. We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our site and to share with advertisers. For ex., we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our site. We will not disclose anything that could be used to identify any individuals.

    If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

    Our Commitment To Data Security

    To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

    Cookies and Web Beacons

    We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. We also use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing California car ads to someone in California, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing BMW ads to someone who frequents European car sites).

    DoubleClick DART cookies

    We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx.

    Log Files

    As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
