Implications - The popularity of reality shows such as Pimp My Ride has convinced consumers that personalized rides are better than luxury cars such as Ferraris. Hip hop videos depicting these rides has glamorized customized vehicles to the point where they're a must-have for those who can afford the work. The car industry may struggle in personalized designs, so the best solution would be to pack vehicles full of convenient features that outweigh the importance of customized aesthetics.
