How To Turn Your Car Into Your Pride And Joy

Posted on Dec 18 2015 - 10:15am by admin

For some people, a car is nothing more than a metal box on wheels that gets them from A to B. But, for others, their vehicle is something more. In fact, their car becomes a big part of their life. If you sound like one of those people, you’ll no doubt want to make your car your pride and joy.

So, what steps can you take to make your car more individual? After all; the last thing you want is to make it like the other cars out there!

Well, you can do as little or as much as you want. What I would recommend is that you make changes that add value to the car. Below are a few examples of what I mean to help you get started. It matters not if you own a Honda or a Ford, this guide can get used for all cars:

Fit premium tyres to your wheels

It doesn’t matter whether you bought your car used or brand new. It’s likely that the tyres that come with the car aren’t that great! You might not think it, but each tyre model has a different tread pattern and construction. It’s a well-known fact that some tyres perform better than others.

When shopping around for new tyres, consider the likely use of them. For instance, does it rain a lot where you live? If so, you’ll need ones that are outstanding in wet weather. You should also check the fuel rating for your new tyres. That’s because some tyres (i.e. the budget ones) make your car use more fuel than others.

Get your wheels refurbished

If you’ve got a used car, you may have noticed that your wheels have got marks and even dents on them. You can get them refurbished so that they look brand new. At the same time, you’ve also got an opportunity to make them more unique.

Before you get them sorted out, you can ask the refurbisher to spray them in a particular colour. It’s also possible to specify a split-colour design. For instance, you could have the face of the wheels sprayed silver and the rest painted gloss black.

Buy some private number plates

Another way to make your car your pride and joy is to buy some private number plates for them! As you can imagine, there is a plethora of choice on the market. You can choose some that have your initials, for example.

You might even wish to get some private plates that spell out a particular word or phrase. The only things that limit your choice are your imagination and bank balance!

Go for a colour change

Just because your car came in a specific colour doesn’t mean you have to like it! If you prefer a different tone, you have the option to get your car resprayed in a different colour.

There are thousands of different shades that you can select. You can even have the paint shop mix up more than one colour to create a unique one-off paint for your car!

Did you know that it’s possible to get paint that changes colour with the temperature outside? How cool is that!
