Hey all,

We always see thread along the lines of what is your favorite mod but I was wondering what mod do you regret or wish you hadn't done.


I dont want this to turn into a hater thread but I thought it would be interesting to share with everyone so that no one makes the same mistake that some one else might have.

HID's were the biggest piles of shit I ever bought. Had them 1 month and they gave me hell then crapped out on me an hour away from home in the dark. The ballast shorted on them and they were totally shot.

i wish i hadn't tapped power for some interior piece i installed (light up toggle switch).

i taped the power from the dimmer switch, looked away for just a second, and the wires touched, melting them a foot back.

i had to repair the wires... what a pain.

HIDs were probably the smartest purchase for my Passat, out of all the mods I've done. I can SEE at night!!! :thumbup:

my double din conversion drove me nuts, and still is. It doesn't sit entirely flush, because I havent made a piece for the top to screw the top of the faceplate into. It's not all that bad though. I'll finish it once they stop working me for 18hrs at a time.

That's the dumbest, gay'est thing I've ever seen on a car. I've never seen one on the street but I'm about 3000 miles from Oakland... Fortunately. I swear the mental age of people is dropping like a stone.


I may be about to do one of the worst mods to my car soon. I got this tear dropped shape plastic thing with a metal disk inside that goes on the top of your antenna to boost reception. It says "battle tested in Desert Storm" on the label. It was a gift so I figure I'll switch the signal strength meter of the Monsoon on and see if this little turd actually works. It'll probably just rip the tip off my antenna when I try to remove it though...
