That is exactly what I started realizing a few months ago. I sold the stock parts which I am beginning to regret now. Back when I got my body work done I was so thrilled on the car I thought, why would I ever want to put those back on? And when I sell it the buyer would probably prefer the upgraded look other than stock. I also did not plan on having my next car be another Volvo, as time passed I realized another Volvo would be pretty nice.
I see... well don't regret it. what's gone is gone. besides you didn't throw them away, apparently you sold them which means you got at least a fraction of their value.
but you know what, actually as a used car buyer myself, i would prefer to buy my car from a seller who had the least possible enthusiast for cars and kept it completely stock and who hopefully never even thought of concepts like modding the car, aftermarket parts, unauthorized dealers, spirited driving, pushing to the limits, rallying etc....
no matter how beautiful the car looks, if it is modded in anyway (cosmetics or performance) i will assume that the former owner is a guy like me. and i wouldn't want to buy a car from a guy like me
