Heck no!

The reason I am on here right now today is I'm just waiting for the phone call telling me my car is ready to pick up. I bought this car to modify as I knew that it was a platform that easily welcomes modifications. Suspension and body parts almost done. The engine will be next with extensive modifications. No regrets, and no wife so it's easy.

A good kind of silly.

Regrets yes, Regrets and want to go back to stock, HELL NO!! I wish I had done a little more, Maybe the 750 package, now that's just being greedy. This car is soooo much fun to drive, you think it's fun stock, get quicker throttle response, faster all around, and the roar that turns heads. Now your talking!

We all know a mans car is like a mans pecker. Now imagine you dropped a few grand on your pecker and now it's 40-50% bigger and badder than it ever was stock. Would you regret it???

Mods make it YOURS. Otherwise, your ZL1 is just another one of the thousands out there. From simply changing the color of your bowties, to a full on 750HP Hennessey package, do whatever YOU want to do--and never look back.

I'll made plenty of mods and I have zero regrets. It's what makes mine different from all the others.

And no, I don't know where it'll end!?!?!?!
There are only so many days in your lifetime. So get out and drive your Camaro...

Not at all... My car is so much better that it was when it was stock. All my mods were carefully selected to retain comfort and drivability. It is a little stiffer because of the sways and bushings, but in a good way. The cam is small and drives like stock. My gears are sick!

Take your time and be sure you are aware of both the positives and negatives of anything you do to your car... Regret is not a good feeling...

I have modded most of my vehicles with very few regrets.

These vehicles are made to withstand some serious modding.
Big bonus for us.

Since they have been out for a while and you can see all the mods everyone has done and their longevity. It makes modding great.
No wasting money on the wrong mods.

This has been one of my favorite vehicles to mod. So many great companies to chose from for mods. They are all listed right here, so most of the research has been done for you.
Find one and build a relationship with them.

Don't get me wrong these cars are great from the factory.

But one ride in a modded one will make you wish you did this earlier.

Mod on

The only time I think you will regret it is when you effect the drivability of the car or mod it to the point where you have to work on it all the time because your breaking stuff from making it so fast. Honestly was worried about mine after I put the Cam in it, but the car drives great, going down the road the pipes are really quiet, I still get good gas mileage and it is reliable and has not over heated....I enjoyed it when I bought it, I love it now.
