No, this one doesn’t come from experience. And no, I don’t have an update on the Wombat, I just felt like using that picture of it from when I bought it… many many years ago. But I do want to hear about a time when you bought something to put on your car and then regretted doing so either immediately or sometime later.
Maybe you put one of those crazy fuel efficiency improvement devices on there? Did you go with a bad set of wheels or tires? Perhaps those eBay-sourced lowering springs were a bit bouncier than you expected?
There has to have been a time when you sought out a part, found it, installed it, and then went “…shit, I shouldn’t have done that”. And that’s what we’re talking about today. Let’s share pain here. Spill your automotive shame upgrades in the comments below.
