5 Outrageous Car Accessories

Feb 15, 2016, 07:02 AM by Discount Auto Glass

We all love to keep our car looking stylish. At what point do some of these accessories go a little overboard and start moving toward the side of completely outrageous? At Discount Auto Glass, we value the importance of having a car in tiptop shape, inside and out.

Our auto glass experts work hard every day to keep your auto glass safe and in perfect working order. But sometimes it’s nice to step away from the norm and have a little fun. And in this spirit, we thought of some of the most outrageous car accessories out there. Here are five of the most outrageous accessories we came up with:

  1. Car eyelashes – These give a whole new meaning to “giving your car a personality.” These eyelashes give your car a face. Wait, what? They are made of flexible plastic and are relatively inexpensive, but are completely unnecessary. They attach with automotive take, and typically won’t damage your car.car eyelashes

  2. Bullet hole stickers – As a company built on repairing cracks in glass, these stickers seem a little ridiculous to us. They give the illusion of bullet holes in your car’s body or the windows. Of course, if a real bullet hole makes its way into your auto glass, come see us.

  3. Spinner rims – Though these might be pretty entertaining to watch, they can cost a pretty penny. Wheels are a crucial part of every car, but spending a fortune on rims can be a little ridiculous. Some rims can cost over $1,500! We can think of much better ways to spend that kind of money.

  4. Whistle tips – These pesky accessories are not only annoying, in some states, they are illegal. A metal plate with a hole in it is welded to your exhaust pipe and when your car accelerates, it creates a loud whistle sound. These whistles may be small, but they can pack a punch. The whistle can be heard from up to a mile away, and can violate many cities’ noise ordinances. Do yourself and your neighbors a favor – skip the whistle tip.

  5. Car mustaches – Mustaches have become pretty popular in the last couple of years. You can find mustache accessories on everything from t-shirts to baby pacifiers! Now, the trend has reached the automobile world. Whether it’s a vinyl or furry ‘stache for your car, we think they’re pretty outrageous. The furry mustaches are also potentially dangerous, as they could cause temperature problems in car engine and cause your car to overheat. It’s our recommendation just to ditch the mustache all together.
