Imitations for the car have been in demand for years and manchmal they are a stylish addition to the tuning of the vehicle. For example, if a manufacturer Fake exhaust pipes installed on the vehicle. The car then has the typical look with sporty tailpipes, but there is often either a cover (blind cap) or just a tube behind it. If this type of imitation is well done, one can certainly live with it. But it looks different with stickers & Co. Here the opinions and tastes diverge clearly. For example, air inlets, also known as air inlet gills, can be made using stickers imitated become. What options these imitations offer for outdoor tuning and what needs to be considered when buying, is explained below.
Imitations - what is meant?
A vehicle can be tuned in many ways. For example, performance-enhancing tuning can be carried out on the engine or there is a high-quality leather interior. The styling of the vehicle can be extensively changed both outside and inside if desired. But such a conversion can quickly swallow up the vehicle value or even become more expensive. But it is also cheaper! The vehicle owner can also carry out tuning externally and internally at low cost with imitations. This means that certain elements are imitated on the vehicle surface. An imitation has no functional elements, but is only intended to simulate a certain function.
Which imitations are possible?
There are imitations for example in the trade filler cap, air intakes, Tailpipes, air scoops, gills and many other functions available. The fake air inlet gills are particularly popular, which look stylish at first glance and can be purchased in a carbon look, for example. The articles can often be stuck on. Gluing is possible without any problems and takes place in the areas where that too functional Original would be installed. For example, tailpipe stickers would be attached to the rear apron instead of real tailpipes and could thus act as a fake tailpipe. The car looks sportier for the moment and it gives a performance-enhancing impression for little money.
What should be considered when buying?
The imitations are available for many car exterior areas and can be purchased as desired and attached to the vehicle. Individuality counts in tuning and tuning enthusiasts like to design their vehicles according to their own criteria. When buying imitations for the car, there are a few factors to consider. The imitation should be easy to attach to the vehicle. It is advisable, if possible, to use self-adhesive imitations whose glue lasts a long time. The sticker should not be susceptible to the weather and should also last in heavy rain, snow, wind, etc. The air intake imitations should be made of robust plastic or a similarly robust material.
The imitations for the vehicle can also be purchased for specific types. This means that, for example, fake gills for the plastic fenders in carbon look are available specifically for Mercedes, BMW or Audi vehicles. This also applies to almost all other vehicle types. When buying the type-specific imitations, the article dimensions should be observed. For example, the air intakes must fit on the front apron or another intended vehicle area. The imitation should appear as real as possible and must be glued exactly. Easy-to-attach, self-adhesive items should therefore be purchased.
Imitations for the vehicle - conclusion
Imitations are available on the market, for example in the form of stickers, which can be used for cheap tuning. Tailpipes, air intakes, gills, fuel caps and many other elements can be imitated. There are also air scoops, GPS antennas and even entire sunroofs as an imitation to stick on. However, we personally don't believe in it. 90% of all articles can be exposed at first glance and then we find it embarrassing. When buying, care should be taken to ensure a precise fit and easy application of the imitations. Tuning forums help further.
