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
>>25470782Louvers have limited use. Outside of that, they're just aesthetics. Can you pull them off on a normal car?
>>25470784>Louvers have limited use.yeah, signaling to everyone that you're a fag
>>25470782louvers 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.
>>25470784They 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.
>>25470782I think it looks great with newer wrx's/lancers and civics.
>>25470797please don't tell me you think that looks good
>>25470797That entire car looks bloated
>>25470782you always look like a fag putting on random shit for the sake of putting on random shit that makes the car worse
>>25470797You are what's everything wrong with current car culture
>>25470790Not if you drive a liftback in florida. Id get one just to stop my backseat from turning into a damn furnace
>>25470782>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
>>25470881I found out about this great new invention called "window tint".You'll love it.
depends on the car, it fits on a lada nicely
For me they're an European thing, always see them on real Volvos, Opels and Fords
>>25470782Louvers 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.
>>25470873they look overdone and match the car's already riced out look from the factory, gee i wonder why louvers work on those 3 cars anon
>>25470782It will look cool. "Car people" have the worst opinions.
>>25470782Late 70s/80s/early 90s is acceptable outside of american pony car application
>>25470782No, they look like tacked on shit outside of few applications with recessed rear windows.
>>25470782these look awful and cheap on anything that isn't 80s muscle. i thought it'd be okay on classic datsuns but >>25470794 seems to prove me wrong.>>25470941actually looks okay though
I saw a disgusting riced accord the other day with them it looked horrible>>25470797t. nigger/spic/slav/albanian/chink/(insert minority ethnic group here)>>254708731000% Agreed
>>25470799>>25470809>>25470873>>25470898>>25471750behold the hivemind of plebbit, i don't care what you busriders say.>verification not required
>>25471750>I saw a disgusting riced accord the other day with them it looked horriblenah bruh, it looks legit and i had on on mine, but i took that shit off real quick, cant see shit out the back glass, still got the side ones on tho
>>25470921Not every place with hot summers allows high tint.
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.
>>25471821Post skin color
I want a set of louvres for my g8I think it'd look cool
>>25471800>>25471821We can tell you're a newfag to /o/Your taste is shit

>>25471925>uses black ice>hates black peopleyou need to lower that shit and get some different wheels, and get some tints, why you driving a fish bowl? your shit looks like shit ngl

>>25471886seethe harder oldfag the future is now n your whiteboi ass is getting left in my rear view mirror>verification not required
>>25471951It'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.
>>25471968The louvers don’t make your 15 second car any faster
>>25471968I'm not white I'm mexican>nogification not required
>>25471750"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.
>>25471984Tints 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
>>25470797Same, I like mine.>>25471821>>25471887Looking good fellow hondabro.>>25471071>>25471877>They're also a pain in the fucking ass to keep clean.Ceramic coat your rear window and the louvers, makes it a lot easier to clean. Actually, just do your whole car, lol.
>>25472072Lmao 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.
>>25472076>Covert Ave, Garden City, NYoh nonono
>>25471877>Louvers have a long history with Z-carsYup!>some old dude at autocross said the old 280ZX had them on a hinge so you could clean under themYeah, they do that too for easy cleaning.
>>25470782I got Louvers on my rattlecan 79 camaro and a cowl hood with a rectangle sawzall cut in it so my bug catcher slightly pokes out. Really makes the whole look complete.
>>25472121Well 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
>>25472349Yeah I probably will im sick of wearing glasses all the time
>>25472251What you have on your car is what i'm paying tribute to on mine.
>>25472405Get a classic red, white, & blue DATSUN logo sticker for one of your side windows. It will bring you good luck and fortune.
>>25470906Try this one instead.
>>25472076Hey Pablo, is that even an Si?
>>25472076You seem like the kind of guy that would unironically say "fr fr no cap"
>>25472704That poor rusty 280zx turbo! ;(
Only look good in boxy cars
>>25470782>Are louvers American muscle car only thing?For the most part, but they were also fairly common on 70's-80's japanese hatchbacks (such as the datsun 280z)
its a 70s thing, like slot mags, cup tachs and side pipes.
>>25471996Lol beaner faggot. Go rice a shitty civic
>>25470796>They were always designed for looksThey were always designed as a practical means of keeping direct sun off the back seat whilst not impeding rear view vision.
>>25473088Before tints took off, of course. And they did have a secondary aesthetic function.
>>25473100>they did have a secondary aesthetic functionSure, 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.
>>25472753Both floorpans, drivers rear quarter/passenger lower rear quarters are fucking gone, upside is it was free and it runs, sort of, the injectors are shot and only 2 work.
>>25471877lmao wtf is that parking for giants?
>>25470784i'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.
>>25470941Its a 70‘s and 80‘s thing.Works on a lot of cars
>>25470782They’re ugly on any car.
>>25473259i didn't want to door the spaghetti. I can't afford something like that!!!
>>25472076>>25472405>everyone bashing louvers doesn't post car>louver enjoyers post carhmmmmmmmmmm
>>25470921Faggot female behavior.
>>25473074Will do, faggot
>>25471887Those are some sweet as hell all season budget tires on your whip breh. Must do some serious G forces on the friggin skid pad mang.>>25471892Electric rear sunshades and rear door curtains is an awesome factory option my man.
>only louvers available for my car are a shitty 3-piece style>proper one-piece style is unobtanium hoarded by boomers and sold for nearly $1k
>>25473945>factory optionYou can get aftermarket ones too you know
>>25470782They are nicknamed "whore's stairs" in Finland. They even have a page on Finnish wikipedia. Essential Finnish car culture, always been very popular on 80's sedans like Volvo, Mercedes and BMW.
>>25470797that looks like shit...
>>25473196Clean the injectors and learn welding! Those 280ZXs are wonderful cars. Mine is not a turbo but still fun to drive.
