CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Modifying your car is the most surefire way to make it yours. It sets the car apart from all the other lame-o cars on the road and you get to express yourself a little bit. We all have our favorite mods.

Last week, I asked you guys what single car mod has helped you out the most. You know which one I’m talking about: The one where, after you applied it, you couldn’t imagine life without it.


My car is completely stock. This could be me just gathering intel for later. Or maybe not. Who knows!

Tires & Driver (Stang70Fastback)

Right off the bat, nearly all of you unanimously agreed that tires and driving school are some of the most important things. Personally, I don’t consider tires consumables because they affect the way a car performs so heavily. And learning to drive, even if it’s on a track, makes you a better driver overall.

Exhaust (SLO-Flat4)

Cars make good noises. I would like to hear those noises.


Hood Struts (1LoudST)

All hail multi-tasking!


RWD Conversion (T-P-C)

By the way, some guys did it to a Veyron, too.


Power Steering (365Daytonafan)

It’s all about your enjoyment.


One-Touch Windows (bobbe17)

Wait, they’re not one-touch both ways!?


Dash Cam (jlmmyfu)

Dude, yes!


Window Tint (PLindsey)

It gets hot outside!


Seats (Zaphod’s Heart of Gold)

It’s where you spend most of your time anyway.


Headlights (foreverashroom)

Your car doesn’t mean squat if you can’t see where you’re going.


Cup Holder (Manic Otti)

Not just for drinks, but for other random stuff, too.


Brakes (Mini_Fanatic)

Stopping is just as important as going.


Back-Up Lights (Dr_Spork)

Wow look at those. A little jealous right now.


Oil Filter Mount (Tim the KNinja)

Praying that nothing goes wrong for you.


Bushings (AdmiralAkbar)

Flatten that handling.


Toolbox (staghounds)

Keep it well-stocked.


Water-Proofing (IAmSpazticus)

That was a good idea.
