Biggest regret is throwing over 4g on some Iforged wheels because i didnt get the lipage i wanted I did my research but i guess not enough I asked people with the lipage i wanted and got the offset and gave it to Iforged but in the end did not get what i wanted. Now i have a set of BRAND NEW wheels in the box ready to be pick up from a buyer. Low blow me im desperate

Buying gfx exhaust tips off another member here from IL last year. He sent me two tips for the same side and it shipped to my home while I was at USC and didn't have time to go home until weeks later. By then when I tried getting a refund he accused me of fcking with ish and gave all these bs excuses. Should have saved that $30 for the fsport exhaust I have now. At least I have two identical pencil holders now...

I also regret buying Johnnyboy's single exhaust. I wound up getting a 1 piece exhaust from header to muffler which I didnt know going into it. Changing exhausts was a shot in the dark with where to cut the mid pipe. Its still is a headache cause now I want to put an OEM exhaust and have to go back to the exhaust guy.

Not a shot at Johnny just regret not thinking about it from a practical standpoint as opposed to the impulsive one I was at.

no regrets for every mod i've done. money is spent and gone, and there's no use crying over spilled milk.

however, one mod that i probably could've skipped is the fujita f5 SRI, but without that i would have never been able to cover the cost of a joe z pipe after selling it.

the DRL/FOG mod..

Completley f -ing pointless.

$8cdn for the freeking wire./connecters... i just tore it right now.

i dont wanna have the drl on when the ACC is on radio mode.

i dont want cops comming by when there is smoke pouring out of the slightly open windows.

i like the idea of it but.. not functional for my lifelstyle.

Most regretted a while back was F-Sport BBKs at some point lol


Didn't know even manning up to change my own flat tire with the spare donut led to fail (aka. BBKs are too big for the spare donut)

But then again later on, after some arguements with the dealer, I got a free replacement PS2 and a new f-sport rim wrapped with another PS2 for my spare


Biggest regret would be adding up 15mm and 20mm spacers on my wheels when it chewed up some of my fender linings lol

switching to auto awd from 6mt several years ago, got ripped off on the deal when i was working at the dealership and auto awd was technically a better buy for resale later on.

also, buying volk gt-7s then one week later buying volk te-37s. if only id been patient

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...
