Car sponsors accepted me. Should I take the offer???

I applied for a sponsorship. And they accepted me.
Should I invest the 79$ to get a 5,000$ sponsorship with 500$ cash sponsorship...

I guess what I want to know is if they'll try to screw me over.

Whenever someone is giving you something, but you have to pay them first... RUN!

There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.

You're paying them $79. Exactly what are you getting in return, and what else is expected of you? You'll have trouble convincing us they'll hand you $500 cash.

Re: Car sponsors accepted me. Should I take the offer???

The whole point of a sponsorship isn't because they like you and wanna give you something for free, but to advertise their wares on your vehicle because they believe it stands out and attracts attention, increasing productivity. There's no reason to pay for it because they're meant to pay you for the service. Because you ARE doing them a service. And never do things like this online. Keep it in person because contracts will be signed, if there are contracts definitely post em to us to check online haha. Make a wise decision buddy!

Re: Car sponsors accepted me. Should I take the offer???

Most if not all major sponsorships (like in the amount of money we're talking for yours) require you to attend "x" amount of car shows a year.


If you do not go by their terms, they have the rights to strip your car of all aftermarket parts they install - leaving you with the remains. This does not include re-installing or returning your factory parts that were previously removed.



I say run.

Re: Car sponsors accepted me. Should I take the offer???

If you want sponsorship, go to local businesses. Work a deal out with them. If nothing else, it's good for networking.

It may not look as cool to have Margret's Tampon Store instead of NAWWWZZZZZ on the hood of your car but if it gets you paid and laid, who gives a ****?
