Of course, all this affects the quality and safety. The authorities expect in the near future to translate car tuning into the legal field. Therefore, the presence at the Moscow tuning show of the Director of the Automotive Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Alexei Rakhmanov seemed quite natural.
