I've seen a dude put fake red Brembo caliper covers over REAL Camaro Brembo brakes.

Could have been a solar panel, but no, its just a fake shit. LMAO

What bothers me the most aren't the fake performance badges, it's the opposite. Talking about debadging. It's okay if you drive the diesel version of an S Audi or an AMG Mercedes. Nobody will judge.

Shit nigga, a diesel car in amerikkka is based because there'd not many of you

>say no, they reply with "awww it'd be real cool to get some of those"

This is something a nigger would do on their busted up 200,000 mile charger

right after the rolls royce grill conversion though

I consider anyone in a debadged vehicle to be a poser. I will judge.
>>
>>25767309
Manufacturer won't pay me for brand adversitement so they can shove their badges up their arse. Same way you can shove up your judgement too.

when i hear debadging i always think of it from a sleeper point of view e.g. bmw e46 m3 that just looks like the base model e46

caliper covers are so fucking stupid

ffs I didn't know they were wasting THAT much on some tacky covers lmao
>>
>>25767207
most badges are hideous and soulless
also why would you advertise that you drive base model ?
>>
>>25767207
I assume debadge cars were in an accident and the owner was too cheap to get the badges replaced.
>>
>>25767445
why bother investing in stonks when you can just profit off people's vanity

I'm horrible about "downbadging" cars. I'll debadge for the pure asthetic look. But I've downbadged many of my cars. My current hellcat is badged as a base model. It's just funny for someone who doesn't know and thinks their civic is faster than my "stock" v6 challenger.

>>25767173
I had audi with fake exhaust and cvt that shifted through fake gears. It was old model, if it was couple years newer it would also make fake exhaust sounds though in-exhaust mounted speakers.

Caliper cover's aren't "fake" you sperg, they are literally just covers. They have them for many vehicles, people often like to have colored calipers without having to repaint them or simply keep brake dust off them
>>
>>25768244
That’s a gay way to overheat your brakes.
>>
>>25767640
>also why would you advertise that you drive base model
You advertise that anyway by debadging, no winning here
>>
>>25767207
Your head will explode if you come across a debadged M3.
A lot of people will debadge random badges like "AWD" and the model number because it can feel like too much, having just the manufactures badge suffices and is more aesthetic sometimes.
>>
>>25767207
debadging a higher trim is extremely based though
i saw an RS3 debadged to A3, had to do a double take
>>
>>25768257
Thats not how that work. There are plenty of vehicles that have caliper covers as a factory option
>>
>>25767173
Won't be talking all that shit after I stick a fake dick in your ear.
>>
>>25767671
some guy I worked with debadged his '96 318i and kept telling people it was a 328...
You could clearly see the old 318 outline even at night
>>
>debadging base model
cringe
>debadging top model
based
i think we can all agree
>>
>>25768760
Show me one
>>
>>25767365
>$250 for a fucking cover that any car person can tell right away it's fake, and any non-car-person wasn't going to be impressed by it or even notice anyway
Meanwhile my actual bigger brake calipers cost less than that per axle.
>>
>debadge car for a cleaner look and leave manufacturer logo
>makes /o/ mad too
luv it

>>25767309
>>25767207
Isn't debadging a way to prevent theft and/or get a somewhat sleeper car? It's just pretending to have a lesser Collier car, right?
>>
>>25767173
I bet that thing leaks. Those things always leak. That's why don't have on.
