Performance Parts You Should Have On Your Christmas List

performance parts

What can we say? It’s that time of year, and what a year it has been! I’m sure that none of us are sad that 2020 is coming to an end because no matter what 2021 is like, it cannot be worse than what we have lived through this year. The best part is we have survived, and as the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So, let’s celebrate the end of this year with the usual Christmas spirit and as petrol heads, take a look at some performance parts that you should be considering, if you haven’t already.

Akrapovic Exhaust Systems

A performance exhaust system need not “brake” the bank (no pun intended).

There are stages of exhaust modification. Heck, you can start with custom tail pipes only if you want to give your performance vehicle’s appearance an update. From there, cat-back (from the end of the catalytic converter to the tailpipe) systems would be the next step. These improve your vehicles performance and engine note without causing harm to the environment. Remember, OEMs have the costs associated with bulk manufacture to consider, which companies like Akrapovic don’t have. Consequently, they can produce a better-quality product that is understandably a little more expensive. After all, if you have invested your time and money in finding your dream car, who doesn’t want to hear that gorgeous exhaust note?

Finally, we get to the full Monty. Replacing the entire exhaust system from the headers downwards. This is for the real performance enthusiast who want to use their vehicles more on track and less as a daily driver. A custom exhaust set up can deliver more than a 5% power increase, while reducing vehicle weight.

GiroDisk Braking Systems

At Foreign Affairs Motorwerks, we are firm believers in suspension, steering, and brake upgrades to cope with the extra engine performance unlocked by modification.

GiroDisk is a fascinating company. The brainchild of an ex Porsche engineer, they do custom braking solutions for most performance brands. Incorporating cutting edge tech, they have kits available for anything from exotic Alpha-Romeos to the more vanilla Nissans. Regardless of your brand, GiroDisk will ensure that you have minimal brake fade and optimal stopping distance. The best part? Everything GiroDisk is made with local materials, to strict environmental standards.

Carbon Revolution Wheels

No list would be complete without a set of these puppies.

While they aren’t cheap, being on the verge of the latest tech doesn’t come without cost. iPhone 12 Pro Max anyone? Is it just us, or do iPhone models names get longer and more confusing every year? Fortunately, this isn’t the case with the Carbon Revolution CR-9. Made in Australia using carbon fiber technology, these really are the ultimate wheels. Carbon fiber is an extremely lightweight material, even compared to the high-tech alloys used in modern performance rims.

Making your performance vehicle lighter has great benefits in terms of speed and handling. Besides this, Carbon Revolution wheels are just beautiful to look at. The kings of understatement, they are available as OEM on the Mustang Shelby GT350R, but are widely available for most other performance vehicles through their dealer network.

Where Can I Buy Performance Parts For My Car?

So, to wrap-up (we’re really on fire today) there is an entire world of companies out there that make it their duty to take your performance car from zero to hero. Not all are created equal (some are more equal than others) and experience counts in deciding what kind of modification best suits your vehicle. Do your research carefully and from us at Foreign Affairs Motorwerks, Happy Holidays!
