My Cold Air Intake. Took me about 4 years to get tired of the bad gas milage and having a heart attack every time i went through a big puddle. So i changed it and put in a steeda short ram intake.

I was driving around that day. At times I coasted through 5-6" of water with a CAI. No problems.

I regret my Steeda short throw shifter. Expensive, was really excited to install, but didn't like the feel at all and especially how I couldn't rest my elbow on the armrest comfortable anymore. Stock shifter went in the next day.

Not on a Focus, but I regret letting the 'professionals' install my amp and sub into my Ranger. Apparently for a professional installation you run self tapping screws through the cab and out into the elements.

Never before, never again.

Plasti-dipping my spoiler. Not only did it look mildly absurd and cheap, but when I went to reinstall it I dropped the damn thing and it's all tore up from hitting the concrete.

I regret stock struts with lowering springs. But at the same time I don't, if that makes any sense. I like the way it still rides like stock yet I get the bonus of being 2+ inches lower.

The only time I really regret it was during the summer and long trips you can hear the shocks whine. But after a several hours of cool down it would go away, and regualer driving is no problem.

I regret taking the air silencer off of my stock air box. It is way too loud in the cabin.
