Should fake ductwork be outlawed?

It simply creates unnecessary plastic waste, results in extra weight (higher energy consumption), and is purely designed to appeal to homosexuals. Why hasn’t the government banned it yet?

    Yes brother because if there's one thing we need more of in the USA it's the government banning more aftermarket car parts. We'll all drive stock EVs and we'll love it!

      The government could at least go after low-hanging fruit like this. Literally zero drawbacks.

        How do you propose the law be written?
        >no fake vents
        Then some jerkoff will come along and say they're design accent pieces, not a "fake vent"
        THEN WHAT DO YOU DO?

          1.) Expand EPA mandate to target planned obsolescence. Depending on waste type (eg. plastic is not biodegradable, so a plastic door handle that breaks at 1,000 uses is worse than a wooden one of same durability) fine manufacturers per car made. Set target to a minimum of 100k miles. Any basic components that fail before then will be fined cost of replacement plus additional fee depending on material type.
          2.) Defund EPA for everything since they’re corrupt and useless
          3.) Heavily tax all plastic precursors
          4.) Tariffs on foreign countries (international shipping results in marginal savings for companies that are not passed to the consumer at the expense of large increases in pollution due to shipping)
          5.) Any aftermarket part that doesn’t result in either proven laptime reductions at the nurburgring, increased durability, or decreased cost of labor (while not increasing waste material) is banned. Cosmetic items are ok since they would be net neutral, but add-on cosmetics like fake vents would not since they would be additional plastic.

            >expand EPA
            Why? They're kinda useless and unelected. Targeting planned obsolescence? Do you have any idea how unrealistic that is? Most stuff simply isn't planned obsolescence; it breaks eventually because they made a few parts cheaper to make the overall thing cheaper to actually sell product.
            >defund EPA
            Did you read your own post? Expand it, defund it, then work to abolish it? pick a lane doofus.
            >heavily tax plastics and plastic chemicals
            Why? So every piece of plastic we touch dozens or hundreds of times per DAY it just costs more? So the government gets more money to waste? Fuck off, commie
            >Tariffs
            Exact same thing as taxing things for no reason. Ever notice all the taxes tariffs and other shit being imposed on china? Yeah American consumers pay more for shit they NEED. Not just the garbage we buy on amazon, shit like appliances, food wrappers, and other stuff that are actual NEEDS. 25% tariff on chinese made appliances now, guess what? Sales are up after covid and Americans pay 25% more for appliances now. Government gets that money, and the middle class shrinks. Again, it just raises prices for regular americans without improving anything. See: chicken tax.
            >ban aftermarket, except my autistic loophole exemptions
            I see you don't know how bans work. If you have a carve-out for laptime reductions on a race track in germany, all they have to do is set a casual time because the government is retarded, toss a bunch of dumb chinese plastic junk into the trunk and race a more agressive lap. Your entire ban is circumvented that way.

            You're just so stupid you'll end up buying a timeshare condo in the future.

      It's the only form of government action zoomers understand, because it's now the most common method governments use to "solve" new problems.

    The only thing you need to do is call any one with fake vents a homosexual. The problem will sort it self out.

    Aside from fake ductwork usually being due to unified cross-trim parts (i.e. the foglamp or no fog lamp models, the "sport" trim or standard), it being there is a great way to easily make good aero mods to your own car.

    There's a ton of easy+cheap stuff you can do to make your car have both less drag, less lift profile, and better high speed stability. All you need is 3mm thick ABS sheets, a heat gun and table clamp, and bolts+washers to make body/underbody aero mods.
