I mod slowly, my car is almost stock. I enjoyed every mod I did.

EDIT: Bellezza neck pads, good stuff but I'm too big/fat for them, they touch my back.

Don't regret. Nothing. Bought the awd for areason. Dropped the car on springs n years later got uas n tryin to sell cUss I'm in a money bind. Still don't regret it.

Only thing is going to a reliable body shop n dumped a lot of money to get an ok job. But it's all part of the game

i regret buying wheels that are 19x8.5 +22 up front. I hate rubbing and wish i could run a meaty tire up front.

I am regretting the 20% tint I did in the back of the car, I am almost sure one of these days I will get pulled over for a ticket.

Biggest regret? Modding without purpose or direction. When I first started with the 2IS, I'd get whatever shiny thing attracted my attention. That ended up costing a lot of $$$ as I was always swapping parts out.

I think that I've matured a bit since then and am now meticulous on how I want my car to look.

Good learning experience, though.

The only thing I kind of regret, just a little. is not getting an "F"

Everything else I am very happy with. Then again I do a lot of research before I purchase, LOL.

Take it from someone that got two tint tickets in one week, just take it off now before you get the tickets and have to take them off anyway.

-tein s-tech springs (don't get me wrong, the drop is good for what it is but i wanted lower).

-smoked headlights (vinyl tint) hahah got it for free, just wanted to see what it looked like.

-front tints...getting tickets while only going 15mph is ridiculous, not worth the look.

-and of course going to ****ty shops to do installs for me, but like many of you have said on here it's all a learning experience and now I mod slowly and just the way I want it.

solution: ask ask ask, figure out a look that you want and find out how to get your car towards that direction without spending ridiculous amount of cash on parts that just come off your car in a few months. save money and do it the right way...easily said than done.

[QUOTE=fasteddy91;5684373]opting for the is350 instead of going with the 250 with manual tran

You had made the smart decisioned!


My biggest regret ever is not getting the 350. I bought the 250 because by the time they didn't have the color n the options that i wanted.
