What Modification Do You Regret?

I was thinking the other day about some of the radical alterations we make to our cars in order to make them match the vision in our heads.
Let's hear your stories! What did you do? Why'd you regret it? And did you do anything to "fix" it? Pics are always appreciated.

One mod I had always wanted to do and still love how it looks to this day is shaved door handles. I finally did it on a ranger I had and it was the biggest pain in the butt ever. I regretted that one.

A part of me regrets lowering my car and other part doesn't. I scrape really bad in some places. especially being on Louisiana road. I'm just waiting to bust my transmission Pan. but also it is my fave mod bc my car looks 100x better.

Re: What Modification Do You Regret?

the only thing i've ever regretted was buying my last mustang...so many issues after 6 months lol. 3 grand lose selling it just to not get in any deeper with repairs.

I'm kinda regretting buying a tuner because I have pinging on all the tunes I've gotten. Nothing against Bama because they are working on it, but it still sucks when so many others are not having pinging issues. I really hope we can get it fixed cause I want to be able to run a street tune when the season changes.

This is my second New Edge stang and I made sure this time not to regret anything I have mod to the car. The only regret maybe would be I got the diablo tuner instead of the SCT.

Yup, I agree. That could get you a smidge more clearance too. All be it a smidge.
