Cool Mods you "****" for dumb reasons

I saw a thread recently where someone said they didn't like black wheels, and I got me thinking...

I used to dislike white wheels, simply because the ones I saw were always so dirty, but now that I've seen some nice clean white wheels on here, I've changed my tune.

So my idea for this thread is that people could post about mods that they simply don't like, and others could post examples to change their mind.

Who wants to play?

There are plenty mods to **** on, I think we can agree on a few just because we post here, but my intentions for this thread were mods that we can agree that people like, like the mesh wheel example, but for some reason you, and probably plenty of others, don't like it.

Maybe someone doesn't like badgless grills, or hates clear corners, or hates smoked corners...

I can dig people painting OEM wheels a different TASTEFUL color.

One thing that bothers me is people calling Wheels, "Rims". Stop being uneducated.

Had to do it Matt...

I'm not a fan of people who think they need to run the most rubber they can on their wheels and look like rally cars.

The other thing I **** is the way that MK4's rear wheel moves forward in the wheel arch when slammed, don't get me wrong, I love MK4's and would love to own a slammed one but it just looks off when the tire is almost slammed into the front edge of the wheel well and there is like a foot of gap on the back.
