Cut Springs

I would've thought that this is a no brainer, unfortunately no, as I've seen dozens of these wallowing caskets on wheels at various car meets. Seriously, almost any modern cars suspension has been meticulously engineered to provide optimal amount of grip, stability and comfort, so for god sake dont ruin thinking that you and your mate to ruin it with a bloody angle grinder.

If you want your car lowered, don't be a cheap-a** and shell out the 150 quid that a set of lowering springs costs these days.

Wiper Delete

Everytime I see a 'Kill all wipers' sticker I fell both a little sad and embarrassed to be part of the car community. It literally does not improve a car in any way, and can seriously ruin your visibility in poor conditions.

I genuinely cannot understand how someone could think it would be a good idea to remove their ability to clean their rear window, especially given the weather in the UK.

Smoked tail lights .

While I will admit that the the wiper delete has certain visual appeal to itself, the smoked tail lights look absolutely abysmal no matter what car they are applied to, even worse so they make every car appears as if thou they belong to a bloke name Liam from the council estate, whose long life career is a benefit receiver and a small time drug dealer in a 10 year old Corsa with smoked tailights.

Matt Black everything

While I admit that a few matt black cars had me stop for a few longing looks, (Audi R8 I'm looking at you, you sexy bastard). Unfortunately certain individuals ( usually wearing Adidas track suits, and Burberry hats), thought that if it looks great on a supercar, it will surely fit their banger hatchback... yeah it does not STOP IT.

Car Bras

I will admit that until researching bits for this article I've had no clue what the hell those are, and given their very specific name I've had no idea how to look them up. Turns out that these pieces of usually black material that ruins the hood of any car it ends up on, has been around since the 1950's originally designed to help protect the paint work from stone chippings.

I suppose people who use this are also the people who leave the protective foil on the sofa, 5 year after the purchase.

Whats a car mod that you cant stand ? Let us know down below, if there is enough suggestion we will do a part 2 !

  • I don't really like seeing cars with fake badges and stickers , for example adding an HKS sticker on a completely stock Corsa or a Ferrari badge on a Nissan 300ZX and yes I've seen that in real life...

  • Excessive wheel offset. This is when you buy wheels, or use spacers, and the wheels/tires are sticking out beyond the body. I guess the idea is to make the car look wider? To stuff wider tires on the car?

    Smoked taillights are bad. Smoked headlights are just crazy.

    Giant aftermarket wings. Unless you're racing they're decor. If you're racing they're probably generating drag. If your car needs that much downforce in the rear it's not set up right.

    Here's a fun one, and very likely a US rural thing: deer whistles. Allegedly, these tiny, stick on things create a sound that repels deer wile your driving. I looked at a used car once that had 6 of them stuck on. I asked the owner "how do you know you haven't created a mating call instead?"

    Another fun one: neon/led tubes to light the ground under the car.

    I agree on cut springs. Worse is "spring clamps". BUT - there's the opposite! Spring blocks for raising your car. Just do it right if you want to mess with your cars suspension.

    Cold air intakes done wrong. Unless they have access to cold air, they're hot air intakes.

    Car "bras"? Yes, chip protection is a good thing, but you can get clear film put on that does the same thing.

  • The wiper delete and cut springs I can understand, but the rest just seems to bitching because you can't accept what other people like

  • Excessive negative camber. The car looks like it's fallen off of a building
