The mod I regret the most when I had my IS350 was modifying the stock midpipe by removing the secondary cats. It did not sound good so I should have just ponied up and bought the Megan midpipe to start with.

0 all my mods have been useful and for a reason, coils, turbo blanket, hood struts, tint, rims, bbk etc etc. I do regret not swapping my t62 turbo for a t67 at no cost to myself o well.

I should have saved up and pay the extra couple of hundred or thousand for the BBS LM's.

Linea corse rims are casted so one crack will do it for you. even when you fix the crack, it is most likley your rim will crack again i can almost promise you.

I had mine welded and fixed twice already. i'll snap some pics when i get it back from the shop and show you. Horrible.

ps. I live in Los Angeles...

I've minimized my mods to avoid regrets, wasting money and driving down resale value. But everybody has different preferences and priorities.
