Theswan's right there's loads of much more popular items. Headlamp and turnsigal upgrades, air intakes, chips and reprogramming devices, rims, spec rotors/pads, interior accessories, carbon-fibre linings and moldings.

If you've got serious dough start tuning if that's your thing.

I wouldnt just sell Neons, however i have no interest in selling Body Kits hence it limits what i can sell. I would sell stereo's however id be grateful if anyone knew of any stores which already sell these products in the Cda.

I think that it may be a bad idea to sell ONLY Neons, they are a very faddish thing and although they may be popular whilst films such as 2Fast2Furious is out in the Cinema or on DVD. As soon as a few people have them then they will be seen as common and people will move on to the next thing.

I`m all for the Car accessory shop though, Many places sell bits and pieces but I think a real specialist customising place would go down well, especially on  the RN7 between Nice and Antibes.

Mike:

If these products are readily availible then that is fine, however I havent seen a massive number of cars with Neons. I have seen them with bodykits, but very few with Neons other than on the bonnet hence im trying to make their cars slightly more interesting.

Well I know the marketing side of it as I already supply these products to a number of countries. The products are then supplied through various retailers however im curious if there is a market on the CdA.

Please keep replying to the posting and let me know what you would like to see in the shop.

Cheers

Since "Le Tuning" is so popular in France, isn't this stuff readily available already?

I would think there would be a great market for aftermarket auto products here. Especially if you brand it right. I saw a store in Cogolin that was   Cda is a weathly area and every supermarket sells cheap car trinkets.

You'd need to have somekind specialty(s) that make them come to you. And a really good website, with worldwide shipping. I've noticed aftermarketies follow theirarket. Attend shows/events, have a web presence answering tech questions to the real die-hard enthusiasts.

And you gotta know all the right movies!

Yes, I was looking for Neon Tubes.... and I've found them at Norauto.

I've got a Trike that I want to illuminate from down under.

But, let's say in my country Switzerland, you can find plenty of those gadgets all over the places.

But there is one known crazy guy "Turi" that does't just sell. He installs everything what is funny and not really needed. CB-Radios, Fun-Plates, Neon-Tubes, Trucker-Stuff....

If I'm looking for something that is fun - but not really needed, I find it there.

Try may be same.
