Spoiler: my personal favorite is the spoiler. It is a small metallic hood placed at the back end of the car. This particular accessory gives the car a much energized look. The little red light embedded in it looks amazingly beautiful.

Lighting system: lighting system of the cars is also modified in order to change the look of the car.  The headlights and tail lights are modified. Gone are the days when the lights used to be simple. ‘Angel eyes’ are the most popular approach these days. It consists of embedding a LED into the headlight and tail light area.
