Want your car to make a big statement as it cruises down the highway? Not everyone can afford the latest luxury vehicles, nor can everyone afford to make expensive modifications to their car. But you don’t have to splurge to make your trusty vehicle look and feel cool. Here are some inexpensive and simple ways to make your car cooler. These straightforward mods will help transform your vehicle both inside and out.
Make It Loud
Two qualities make sports cars infinitely cooler than normal cars: how they look and how they sound. If you want your car to sound like a lean and mean racing machine, all you need to do is pick up a muffler delete from your local auto parts store. A muffler delete system removes the suppressing restrictions of the stock muffler, allowing your exhaust to produce harsher and more powerful sounds. Most muffler deletes are under $100, making them a surprisingly affordable modification. Alternatively, you can remove the muffler from the engine entirely or install parts that serve a similar function, such as resonator deletes, catbacks, or axle back exhausts.
Get Rid of Unsightly Scratches
Unless you bought it brand-new, your car is bound to have a few imperfections—a scratch here, some rust there, and peeling paint in the back. Fixing these unsightly flaws is a simple way to make your car cooler. It’s also much easier and affordable than it might seem. You can get scratch repair kits at auto shops or online for a reasonable price or spend a little extra and take your car to a body shop. Just make sure to use paint that’s high quality, and that matches the current color of your car down to the exact shade.
Update the Exterior
You have a couple of different options when it comes to upgrading the exterior of your car. For the body, consider getting a paint job, or for something that’s a little less permanent, a wrap. Wraps are the auto equivalent of vinyl decals. You can pick from a wide variety of designs—or create your own—and apply them wherever you want. Stick them on the hood, the roof, or across the entire vehicle! Wraps won’t damage your car’s original paint and can be removed and replaced at any time.
One other way to update the exterior of your car is to tint the windows. Tinting the windows has both cosmetic and practical benefits. It makes your car look snazzy while also providing a modicum of privacy.
