Are louvers American muscle car only thing? I love how they look, but I feel like I'm gonna look like a fag putting it on a JDM
>>
>>25470782
Louvers have limited use. Outside of that, they're just aesthetics. Can you pull them off on a normal car?

louvers look like shit on all modern cars.
hell, they look like shit on most classic cars, too, but they're the only cars that they make any sense on.
>>
>>25470784
They were always designed for looks, and don't have much use for performance. If you want to keep the aero working in your car, keep some low profile louvers, make sure they match the flow lines of the car.

>Are louvers American muscle car only thing?

I know for a 100% fact that the 1984 RX7 had them as a dealer option. But it probably stared in America. Some Japanese cars legitimately had an option to louvers so it’s not cringe to find period correct ones

Louvers technically do keep your car cooler, but man, they went out of fashion when I was a kid, in the mid '80s. They're also a pain in the fucking ass to keep clean.

Louvers have a long history with Z-cars. They don't look good on every car, but the cars they look good on, they look really good on. Generally, the more horizontal the rear window, the better they'll look. Look at a mustang vs a challenger with louvers. Mustang looks way way better.
>>25471071
>They're also a pain in the fucking ass to keep clean.
FUCKING this holy shit. some old dude at autocross said the old 280ZX had them on a hinge so you could clean under them. Mine are stuck to the window with brackets and VHB, and they're a PITA to keep clean.

It's not Black Ice though. It's Black Classic. I want different wheels but I haven't seen any that I really like. Those wheels are comically small but they're comfy I guess. I would get tints but they're illegal in my cuck state.

"Lambo style" Louvers are fucking disgusting. The only correct louvers were the 70's straight slat style. All of this tryhard Alienware shit looks terrible.
>>
>>25471984
Tints are illegal in your state? Jfc that’s terrible. I live in gigafaggot Oregon, and 35 percent is max allowable, but I had a black X5 tinted to 5% and in 2 years never once got pulled over for it even though it looked like something a guy named Diatomaceous Jackson-White would drive

Ceramic coat your rear window and the louvers, makes it a lot easier to clean. Actually, just do your whole car, lol.
>>
>>25472072
Lmao yeah tints are illegal and they check them every year on your inspection. You can get like 25% I think but its not even worth it I think. However, if you have an SUV you can get limo tint on the rear windows for some stupid reason.

Well shit 25 percent is better than nothing. I have a car that has 35 on it, and I'd definitely take it over no tint. Do it! Get that 25 percent that's coming to you

For the most part, but they were also fairly common on 70's-80's japanese hatchbacks (such as the datsun 280z)

>They were always designed for looks
They were always designed as a practical means of keeping direct sun off the back seat whilst not impeding rear view vision.
>>
>>25473088
Before tints took off, of course. And they did have a secondary aesthetic function.
>>
>>25473100
>they did have a secondary aesthetic function
Sure, but was very secondary. Only in the last couple decades have they become more of a retro aesthetic thing. Prior to this, they were popular anywhere in the world that has a lot of sun, on vehicles of any origin with a slanted rear window.

i'm not invested enough to reply to all the other faggots but louvers can have a great impact on rear lift and overall aerodynamics of a car, if used properly as vortex generators.
And a lot of 80s europe cars used them

Just get window tint, when it bubbles up it gives it the classic car aesthetic.
