A DRIVER has unveiled a popular car accessory that can transform your engine from tasteful to kitschy in seconds.
Brits across the UK love to decorate their vehicles, be it to add some luxury to the interior or to enhance the exterior.
But according to TikToker HopeUsing funny car decals is a surefire way to make a nice car “corny”.
In a video posted on her accountthe driver revealed at least nine of them on her pristine white engine.
But she claimed to love them — even if they raise some eyebrows.
Other auto accessories that make your vehicle look cheesy include quick-release bumper fasteners, one auto expert said.
Quick-release fasteners are adhesive tapes used to keep a car’s hood, bumper, or trunk closed when the fasteners don’t work.
This comes at a time when all drivers who accessorize their cars have been warned they could face a £1,000 fine – don’t get caught.
While they may look fancier than standard engine trims, steering wheel and shifter covers are just two of the additions to consider.
Many drivers now hang air fresheners on their mirrors, be it because they throw sweaty sports gear on the front seat or leave food wrappers in the footwell.
Or maybe you just enjoy a fresh smelling vehicle – but these products could be illegal.
If the item is found to be obstructing your vision or distracting the driver, it is against the Highway Code.
In addition, diamonds glued along the dashboard are an increasingly popular car decoration.
However, from a health and safety perspective, this trend is worrying.
Should the airbags deploy, gems could cause serious facial injuries.
And some Brits consciously keep their beauty and cleaning products in their cars at all times.
However, keeping these items in the car during the summer months could make them less effective.
Fluctuations in temperature and exposure to sunlight can degrade ingredients and alter a product’s chemical composition.
