Autotuning is an all-encompassing topic that looks at all areas of the vehicle. It ranges from the body, the interior, the electrical and mechanical components, such as the engine, to the lighting system and of course the attachment of some extravagant and rare components. However, it is important that you keep the tuning and the characteristics of the vehicle. It should retain the characteristics of the car and tuning should only change it so that it is achieved in a self-contained and coherent Gesamtkunstwerk. At least that's our way of thinking! Like our Category tuning fails shows, but there is another way. One possibility of auto tuning is to change the rear end. Besides the lighting system and minor changes to the bodywork can also be one rear window attach or modify the existing according to their own ideas, for example by means of painting or foiling.
What is a rear window screen?
A rear window panel is a component which is applied to the rear window and is a connection between the vehicle roof and the rear window. A rear window screen normally has the task of limiting the solar radiation through the rear window. When autotuning this component but rather used to change the appearance of the rear to look sportier. Thus, the rear window panel can artificially extend the roof and at the same time reduce the rear window. Both often provide a much more dynamic look. As a rule, the rear window panel is glued to the rear window.
Advantage - retrofitting the rear window screen?
An advantage of retrofitting a rear window screen is that you can limit the sunlight through the rear window. This prevents additional heating of the vehicle. Furthermore, the rear window has the advantage that you restrict the view in the vehicle and thus increases the privacy. Furthermore, the retrofitting of a rear window aperture can cause the view through the rear window in case of rainfall is improved. Splashing water and water are derived from the roof a little better through the aperture. Another advantage is that retrofitting a rear window screen is usually very simple and straightforward. The prerequisite is, of course, that the panel is suitable for the vehicle. If that is the case, you can achieve a pretty big effect with little effort and significantly change the look of the rear end.
Disadvantage - retrofitting the hedge window cover?
A disadvantage of retrofitting a rear window screen is that this is of course not in vain. A certain, if sometimes small, capital for the part and the installation must be raised. In addition, there is often an additional coating or coating which of course is not free. Also, the attachment to the rear window with care must be taken so that the rear window cover holds and is not crooked or even dissolves while driving. Another disadvantage may be that you restrict yourself the view through the rear window and thus has a worse overview in the traffic. Especially when parking backwards in a flat garage, the aperture can interfere.
What to look for when retrofitting?
When retrofitting, make sure that the rear window cover fits the vehicle model and also one General operating permit or EC approval (E-mark) is there. The view through the rear window must not be restricted too much in order to continue to have an overview in road traffic. The attachment must be done carefully, otherwise the wrong attachment will endanger the support. Annoying wind noise can also occur if the attachment is not flush with the roof. The counterpart to the rear cover is the way roof spoiler!
