5 Worst Car Accessories

When a person buys a car, it may be in need of certain modifications. However, some accessories on the market are a waste of time and money. Instead of making a car look good, they detract from the appearance. Here are a few of the worst car accessories.

Stickers Of Any Kind

Stickers or decals that people place on the back window or boot of a car is ridiculous. No one cares how many people exist in the family or what pets are in the home. There are much better ideas that can be used to personalize the car. Stick people are just a waste of money.

Loud Exhaust Systems

Many people decide to core out a stock exhaust system or change it so that it runs extremely loud. Supposedly, this is meant to give the car a sportier feel. Race cars are loud because of the power. However, just because a car is loud does not mean that it is fast.

Lower Suspension

Many people decide to lower a car from its original height. This is meant to make the car handle much better. Most people will purchase a mean set of springs and place them under the car. When done incorrectly, this has the ability to begin a great number of problems. It can also be dangerous.


Spinners for tire rims were very popular in the 1980s. They are applied to the inside of the rims and continue to spin after the wheels have become still. These accessories can be quite expensive. Even though they may look good and gain interest in the beginning, the novelty fades in a short amount of time. There is no need to waste thousands of dollars on something that does nothing to enhance the car's performance.

Car Bras

A car bra is a common accessory that is meant to cover the grill and front of the bonnet. Instead of protecting the paint from bugs and chipping, it has the power to ruin the paint by trapping moisture and dirt. As UV light from the sun naturally affects the paint color, the car will never appear right after the accessory has been removed. A clear bra will tend to yellow and peel as well.

Some people buy incredible luxury 4wds and other modern cars and ruin it by adding unnecessary items to it when it looks fine in its original form. After readin this you’ll start noticing these little quirks on other cars and understand how they ruin your car.
