Does anyone regret any mods they've made to their RSX? I got my car when I was just turning 19 and I have spent a good amount of money on mods etc. I'm almost 23 now and sometimes I regret spending so much money on my car. Then again, sometimes I don't. Maybe graduating from college, getting a full time job in the "real world," and maturing has made me feel this way. Eh, I don't know....does anyone else have similar feelings?

My mods:
-Halo 6000k HID
-Piaa 1700x fogs
-Replica JDM headlights
-Kazara 17x7 rims, Pirelli 17/45/225 tires
-Eclipse 5423 head unit
-Eclipse PA 2 channel amp; Eclipse EA 4 channel amp
-Diamond 12' sub
-Kicker KA components (front) and coaxials (rear)
-Tanabe exhaust
-Red outs

Rims = Biggest waste of money, but that's me.
Only thing I regret is buying my car with the A-Spec package. I never have any money left over for other mods after paying off a payments. :(

Because we live in the country and the weather gets messy, sometimes my car will be sitting in puddles... But in reality, it's not that big of a fucking deal ive realized lol...

Part of growing up bro...why do you think I'm still stockl. I'd lve to go blown but I have more imprtant things I'm sinking my money into...like a house. RSX is a great car out of the box- I wouldn't have gotten another one if I had to mod it to make it fun.

i regret not going to coilovers right away, trying to paint my own sideskirts, getting a big, angled, loud exhaust that attracted cops.

i now have oem painted sideskirts and a full 3'' stock looking exhaust.

the only time i regret mods is when they turn out to be pieces of shit.

example: i had a jackson racing supercharger installed in my former 97 GSR. thanks jackson racing for getting me stranded in the middle of nowhere due to your crappy supercharger.

I dont regret anything so far, and doubt i will. Doing shit to my car is my hobby but ill never dump tens of thousands into it. A little here and there will keep me satisfied. :thumbsup:

graf,
I didnt have to mods my car to make it fun etc. I chose to b/c at the time it was more of a hobby than it is now. At the time I was 19 and not 23 and at the time I was still in college w/o many expenses. I dont 100% regret any mods that Ive made but looking back on it I could have spent the money on better mods (like getting better speakers) or on something other then mods.

I feel ya bro. I purchased my RSX at 18 and I'm now 20. I look back and think, I could have used that money to pay back my parents for the loan they gave me. Now that I'm attending school and taking 14+ units and only working 20 hours a week, it's going to be a couple years before I pay my RSX off. I didn't do major things to my RSX but it all adds up. 1100 for rims and tires, 250 exhaust, 300 intake, and 20 for blacked out headlights. That's 1670 in mods, and I will never see a return. I wish I would've understood the concept of depreciating asset. But, we live and we learn. I take full responsibility for my actions and now I'm paying for them.
