I regret the F2 RS front, even though I loved the look, it was nothing but a collection of problem after problem. I would have been so much better off staying with the stock SVT front.

I also regret my first attempt to retrofit some headlights. I thought i was a fabrication pro, and it ended up costing me alot of time and money. I did it right the next time around and it came out great.

Why regret anything? 1.) You either learn to venture and do your own thing or 2.) You follow what everyone else tells you is acceptable.
