4 Ways To Upgrade Your Vehicle

If you commute to work, or live in the countryside then more likely than not, you will be used to getting into your car and driving a a fair bit of the time. With so many hours spent in your vehicle, it’s important that it’s not only comfortable but that you are proud of it and enjoy driving. For some, affording a new car is a luxury that they currently can’t afford, whilst others may enjoy their older model car but want to update it. It could be that you would like to scrap your current vehicle with a company like auto salvage yards to get some extra cash for a new vehicle. If not, here are 4 things to think about when updating your car. 


Depending on the current alloys you have on your vehicle can depend on the cost and how easy it is to do. With detachable alloys, you can always go to your local repair company or a retailer and buy new ones to change the look and feel of your vehicle. If you have diamond cut alloys, it may be that you get an alloy repair company to come in and fix them, making them look new again. Either way, alloys are an easy way to update your vehicle and make it look new again. 

Change your wheels 

You may have heard of the term racing wheel? These aren’t necessarily for racing cars, they also look great on a normal vehicle due to the many benefits they bring. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they also improve the performance of your vehicle and can help with handling. If you are a new driver or have been driving for a few years, racing wheels can be perfect for you. 

In-Car Entertainment 

Do you currently attach your phone to the window as a satnav? Or listen to music through an aux cable? If so, an upgrade to your In-car entertainment could make your journey more enjoyable and also increase the value of the car. Depending on your budget you could start with the sat nav and then add in some new speakers at a later date. You could always take your car to the local garage and see what entertainment systems they have on offer and would fit in your vehicle. 

Tinted Windows 

Tinted windows instantly change the feel and look of your vehicle. From the outside they add a touch of luxury and from the inside some privacy to passengers in the back of your car. Tinted windows don’t have to be expensive and you can decide on how dark you would like them before installing them. If you browse pinterest you can get an idea of the different types of tints and what people have used for the same vehicle that you currently have. There are some regulations on tinted windows so it’s worth doing your research before getting them installed, although your local garage should know of these.
