If you got into an accident would you try to create the exact same mods?

Would you track down the manufactures to buy every mod to put
your car back the exact same way it was b4 the accident? Or would you
settle with eliminating some of the mods you already bought b4 the
accident?

Don't have much mods as of yet. But the little I do have I would do the same just about and possibly add a twist to it.

In respect to our recently departed loved one, I would observe a respectful period of mourning, then try new cooler things with all the cash my personal injury attorney got me!

Interesting thought. Hope I don't ever have to come down to this. I would probably get the Elite Engineering CC next time as its easier to drain than the RX, I would keep my CAI w/scoop and ARH LTH, probably do something different for underhood cosmetics than what I got from RPI Designs.

Agreed that you'd never want it come down to that, but it's probably smartest to take the chance to do something different than what you had before unless you loved your set up that much.

depending on which one I got to replace it, color for one would make me maybe go a different route as far as looks,

but one thing I probably wouldn't get would be headers, just get cat backs and be done with it. Headers are great and all and I like them now that I have them, but would rather put the money elsewhere.

other than that I'm extremely happy with my other mods

Kind of surprised the majority wouldn't change much if anything. Personally there is likely only one mod I wouldn't do again because I did it before a later mod. That would be the windshield banner that says CAMARO SS

Sure.

Weathertech mats, LEDs for the cabin/trunk/license, custom black stickers to cover the airbag instructions on my visors, and a hitch.

Less than 400 bucks worth of mods, most of which is the hitch.

Why not?

I got nailed by an old lady, she was driving down the wrong side of the road at night with no headlights in a station wagon from the 80's of some sort and I was on my Harley...

I walked away and it was cosmetic damage on my bike because I turned it sideways and put it under her bumper rather than me run straight on and probably break some people parts too

point is, I settled with her insurance company and had the Harley dealership doing the repairs order the exhaust and what not I wanted instead of stock and I paid the difference, it kind of work out

You guys that have been unfortunate to get into wrecks, are you going to re-do all of the mods you had on the car before it was damaged? Any mods that you really didn't like after you put them on the car?

I would be trading it in on an undamaged car. Fix only to get rid of it wasn't totaled. I don't like damaged goods.

I would replace everything. I like all the decisions and mods I have made to the car.

I would pretty much do the exact same things. Maybe a couple minor things like use 1 7/8" headers just because (I got a smoking deal on my 1 3/4" that I couldn't pass up $400). Maybe do full bushings instead of bushing inserts since I would probably have more money. I would make sure to find a 2011 so I could have HUD. But...all in all I would do the same type of mods.

If i liked everything i had on the car before the accident and wanted them back the answer is yes. Some mods look good but after a while you wish you went with something different or you see something better you wished you had found before the mod you spent money on. So for me it would depend if the parts i bought i think i would still like best.

To the maximum extent possible, yes, and this applies to any car I might have or ever get. Different tires possibly, and as close as possible functionally to any mods whose mfr has stopped making whatever it was I'd bought before would be the only differences I can think of right away. Most of the mods I make aren't readily visible, which probably makes the decision to "stay the same" a lot easier.

Like others in this thread, I put enough time into choosing my mods to be comfortable with my choices long-term. Learned a long time ago to "think twice, buy once".
