There are dozens of accessories you can buy for your car. Just because you can, though, it doesn’t mean you should.
There’s a corner of your local car accessory shop where you really don’t want to go. It’s the land that taste forgot.
Money spent on the tat you’ll find here is not money spent wisely.
Here’s MotorPaper’s guide to the accessories you really ought to avoid:
These were rubbish in the ’80s. It’s now 2019. Don’t do it.
His and hers windscreen stickers
Congratulations, you are in a relationship. Hopefully, you are intelligent enough to remember the name of the person you love without plastering it over the front of your car.
The rest of us don’t need to know.
And if you break-up, those stickers are a bugger to peel off.
Beaded car seat covers
Unless you are over 70 and beige is your favourite colour, avoid beaded car seat covers.
If you suffer from really bad back-ache we’ll let you off, but think of this as a yellow card.
Are you going to hit a bull on your way to work? Almost certainly not.
Are you going to hit a person?
Let’s hope not, but it is possible.
The front of a modern car is a lot more
You might think it looks great, but in a couple of years when you sell the car on not everyone will agree.
Your insurance premium will go up and the car will ride bumps as if the springs have been replaced with concrete.
Leaving the exhaust behind when you drive over a speed bump won’t impress anyone.
This needs no explanation.
