Default I guess car audio has expanded it'* market...

Ok, I was walking thru Circut City checking out the car audio section. I was looking at the amp wiring kits when I came across Euro Civic tail lights! Now I'm thinking this can't be right? Why would this be in the car audio section. So I continued looking and in the next isle I saw more of the new "car audio". They had a whole display dedicated to CAI'*, coffe can exhaust tips, headlights and tail lights, and a few other ricer things. Now seeing this display in a local parts store I would have thought nothing of it, but inside an electronics store?

Some of those parts are actually useful, a 2" exhaust tip - not one that makes noise - just a very stock-looking one to hide the unsightly normal tip... Dad and I considered getting one for the '98 Altima, but hey, a shortened 1993-ish VW Passat tip works perfectly fine... and doesn't look ricey

At least it makes sence to have it at canadian Tire though, since they sell AUTO PARTS. but that would be like Radio Shack selling those same parts.
