So what drives this constant evolution of the car? After all a car is not a biological creature that mother nature will take care of. It may not appear so but the evolution of the car is the combined effect of several initiatives being taken by corporations and individuals. Corporations is understandable because they invest a lot of money in research and therefore are likely to lead the evolution.

The amazing part is how individuals have contributed. And amongst these have been those who modified their cars with body kits and showed the way to how the car can be styled better. These pioneering individuals have been so successful that many car manufacturers now offer factory fitted body kits.

These talented designers may not get as much visibility as car designers do but they work hard to create some fantastic new designs. Using your imagination and your familiarity with your car you will be able to come up with a unique style that causes people to stop and admire the car.

 

Car Interior Accessories

A lot of the controls for the car machinery are in the interior of the car. The driver would be happy if it is easy and simple to access and operate them.

Besides such controls there is the rear view mirror. It is a very important aid for road safety. It tells the driver of the traffic approaching from behind. A wider rear view mirror that gives a better view can also be installed. From the information gained from the rear view mirror the driver can act as may be demanded by the situation. The driver may have to use one of the controls for this purpose and interior accessories, such as a personalized steering wheel, will help the driver have a better experience. The driver will in general enjoy using interior accessories that can be installed in several places in the car cabin. A custom gear knob will make the gear shifting more suited to the individual. A shorter gear stick may give a driver a better feel when shifting gears. Even the hand brake grip can be customized.

The pedal pads can be changed and custom ones installed which give a better grip when you use the pedals. These are often used by high performance car drivers.

Power Tuners Introduction

The aftermarket parts industry is constantly coming up with everything you need to enhance your vehicle’s look as well as its improve performance. On the performance side of things custom air filters, cold air intakes, and exhaust systems are much sought after options for car enthusiasts. In addition, performance chips are being installed by owners who desire to turn their ordinary cars into something extraordinary.

While performance chips are a great way to increase torque and bang out more horsepower, they are invasive. This means you must either pop the hood or remove the dashboard to locate your current chip, swap it out, and replace it with the new one. Fortunately, technicians have invented tuning modules that work by simply hooking it into your under dash diagnostic connector. Once you are “wired” all you will need to do is answer a series of yes/no questions and the programmer does the rest. When you are done, you can disconnect the programmer and enjoy your now potent vehicle.

Power programmers, including those developed by Hypertech, fit right into the palm of your hand. Each programmer is custom developed for your make/model, so you must specify the vehicle you own or it won’t work for you. Popular vehicles that can benefit from tuning programmer include: the Dodge Ram; Jeep Wrangler, Cherokee, and Gran Cherokee; the Ford “F” series pick ups and Mustang; and several GM models including the Corvette, Firebird, Camaro, and many full size pick up trucks.

There are several benefits in using a power programmer, including:

–Increased horsepower

–Increased torque

–Increased fuel economy – yes, an efficiently tuned engine gets the best fuel mileage.

–Optimized tuning – tune for 87 octane or 91 octane fuel.

No you don’t have to be mechanic or a computer programmer to work with a power tuner. Everything you need is stored right inside your little hand held device. What’s more, if you decide that you want to return your car to its OEM specifications, you can do that in mere moments. Try swapping out a performance chip that quickly!

Of course, power tuners aren’t for everyone. If you are satisfied with the status quo or aren’t looking to get the edge while driving, then you are likely to pass on the experience. For everyone else, a power tuner is an affordable and non invasive way to turn an ordinary passenger car into a true road rocket.
