Hello all! Let's have a little fun!
Looking to find everyone's best single mod :goodjob:
(if you could have only one),
and everyone's worst single mod :rocket:
(why the hell did I do that!!).
A little description would be nice by each one also. So sound off!

My Best Mod: Yakima rack to the fix point

- Makes my car all the more functional!

My Worst Mod: Halo Lights

- Felt uncomfortable doing this myself, so I had a "professional"
install them. Now my light housing is all melted to s**t & I am now
getting moisture inside lens.

Best Mod: Would have to be a tie between my CP-E rear mount and my Pioneer usb deck. Both have solved nagging issues with everyday driveability of the car.

Worst Mod: Haven't really come across one yet.

Best mod - tie: cone filter on 96 Integra and black painted emblems on 09 3i

Worst mod - Haven't made one since the above are all I've modded on my cars. Soon to change with the 3, got the bug.

Jort- what CS inserts are you referring to?

best: MazdaSpeed suspension (although the GV lip is a close second)

worst: if I have to pick one, i'd say the stubby. it looks good, but reception isn't great out of the city.

Best mod: KW V2 Coilovers

Worst mod: Painting the engine cover (looks not so good)

I started this post for my own selfish reasons :dmention7:... I am looking for more mod ideas and painting the engine cover was one of them. What happened, rush the paint job, or does painting that plastic in general turn out crappy? I've seen other members photos, and they seem to have come out fine. But, that is just photos I've seen so far. By the way, thanks danielj, you seem to always be answering my questions no matter how trivial they are!!

On the engine cover: Painting plastic is difficult and I'm sure it looks better in most pictures than in person. It's difficult to get a clean line on grained plastic. Soon I will just paint the entire thing black and move on. :lol:

I'm shocked that the insert has shown up twice already. I've rather enjoyed mine and it is pretty smooth now but I also run an ETD too... :dunno:

Best: Tein Super Street adjustable coilovers

Worst: Vertical "Lambo" doors. Simply isn't all that practical, even though they look really nice.

You live in Italy... and have Lambo doors... on your 3... I think my brain is hemorrhaging.

Best: Taking all the junk off the sides (2.3, side molding, window tape)



Worst: Painted emblems. They're ok but they're pretty ricey.

I felt I had to paint mine. Nothing on the exterior that was chrome or chrome-look but the badges, plus chrome doesn't look right on silver.
