Today there seems to be no limit to the ways in which people can modify their cars. Commonly known as “car mods,” these are typically cosmetic alterations people can make to their car to customize and make it look cooler. The problem is that most car mods are actually pretty useless and a complete waste of money. Studies show that car mods also tend to lower the value of a vehicle as many people just don’t want a car that has flames painted on the side doors or oversized tires and pimped out rims. Truth be told, most car mods leave other drivers scratching their heads and wondering “Why in the world would you do that to your car?” Here’s a list of the 10 most worthless car modifications.
10. Undercarriage Lighting
This is the fluorescent lighting you see underneath a tricked out Mazda 3 or Honda Accord hatchback model. You know, the purple or pink lighting that is beneath the car and illuminating the road. This undercarriage lighting is known as “Underglow” or “LEDGlow,” and trust us when we say that it is completely useless. Undercarriage lighting on cars is completely cosmetic and serves no purpose whatsoever. As such, it is a complete waste of money. Yet this car mod is a popular item among young drivers who enjoy watching the Fast and Furious movies and pimping their rides. Sure, the added lighting makes the car get noticed—but for all the wrong reasons. Do yourself and the driving community a favor and avoid this modification. Better yet, save your money and move out of your parents’ basement.
