Booming basses make the rear window vibrate. Not a sheet of paper fits between the tires and the wheel well, and the front spoiler crouches on the floor. Tuned cars are not for everyone. But it does not always have to be extremely wide, deep or glittering. Tuning goes also more discreetly.
Booming basses make the rear window vibrate. There's no room for a sheet of paper between the tires and the wheel arch, and the front spoiler crouches on the floor. Tuned cars are not for everyone. But it does not always have to be extremely wide, deep or glittering. Tuning can also be more discreet. According to Jürgen Bente of the German Road Safety Council (DVR), large. Wide wheels particularly popular with tuners. Then follow body kits with spoilers and side skirts. Harald Schmidkte of the Association of Automotive Tuners (VDAT) sees it similarly: "Wheel-tire combinations with special wheels are unreservedly among the most popular tuning products."But also lowering or track widening or the optimization of engine or exhaust is popular with tuners.
According to Arnulf Thiemel of the German Automobile Association (ADAC), the trend is towards tuning that is close to standard production without any conspicuous visual changes. Measures that do not require major conversion work and can be easily retrofitted are also popular. This includes other wheels, chip tuning, foiling and exhaust systems. "Work on safety-relevant parts such as the engine, drivetrain, chassis and brake system, as well as airbags and electrical systems, on the other hand, is something for professionals only," says Thiemel.
