Is there an idiom to say "You were right", in a regretful way, when for example you didn't listen to what someone kept telling you and now he's proven to be right. As in:

You were right about it. I shouldn't have done that.

When someone is proven right like this, the idiom (for them) is "I told you so!". For you to say "You told me so" is slightly less of an idiom, perhaps, but would still be recognised, and it's the best I can think of.
