Worst car modifications

It can be fun to modify our cars, but a lot of the time it doesn’t always turn out to be beneficial or the way we planned it to be. We can learn from people’s mistakes and what not to do when modifying our car.

If you plan on doing any serious modifications, rather take a bit more time and do some proper planning. Research whether it will affect your car’s resale price in the long run, otherwise you will be stuck with a car that no one wants to buy.


Modifying your car can be compared with getting a tattoo for the first time. If you don’t research it properly, know exactly what you want and get it done professionally, you will probably end up regretting it and waste a lot of money.



Modifications aren’t the only way to ruin your car, doing DIY repairs on your car when you are clearly low on cash is also a dangerous affair. People try and get away with cheap repair jobs, but only end up shooting themselves in the foot. Rather wait until the time and budget is right, and ensure that your repair is done properly.



Some people think that the more flashy and extreme their modification is, the more attention they will attract. Unfortunately, car enthusiasts tend to appreciate professional design techniques used by car manufacturers to fascinate and impress, so in turn people are actually just modifying their car according to their own taste, and 99% of people don’t have the same taste.



Don’t fall into the trap of modifying your vehicle, unless you plan on doing a thorough job or know for sure that it can be sold one day. A massive spoiler on your car can actually just end up spoiling everything!
