Customization is a great thing when it comes to car ownership. From the smallest detail like a shift knob to the more grandiose like a full engine swap. It is your car after all so you should be able to make it look and feel exactly how you want it to. There is nothing worse than having to go on a long drive, taking a look at your vehicle and thinking that it just doesn’t meet your requirements. So, let’s take a look at some of the changes you can make to your car to make it an extension of you.
First of all, let’s look at performance. The easiest way to improve the drive of your car is to get yourself an ECU tuning. Tweaking the power of the car can do so much these days thanks to the software led design, so you could find yourself with improved more power and an improved throttle response. But, be wary of getting an ECU done at any old place. There are risks attached the rewards so be confident going in that you’re doing the right thing.
If you’re not sure on getting your software tuned up but still want to take a look at personalizing the performance aspect of your car, consider replacing your engine or improving your suspension. Again, be careful with what you’re putting into your car – the last thing you want to do is overpower it – but consider what you want your vehicle to feel and sound like.
Moving away from performance and onto aesthetically pleasing and comfort changes. Inside the car is where you’re going to spend most of your time so making sure you are happy with your interior should be your first port of call; assuming you’re unlikely to purchase a car in the first place if you don’t like the outside.
So, what can you do to the interior? Well for starters, some customer seat covers are going to go a long way. You’ll keep the seats underneath in good condition while also adding your own flavor to the interior. But once again, go to the experts. Companies like CalTrend have been in this industry for many years so seeking their advice first is a good way to go. Additional changes to the interior of your car can be made with the previously mentioned shift knob alteration, a better sound system with personalized speakers and even a roll cage.
Finally, if you do need to give your car a bit of a makeover outside, consider going all in and getting a full body paint. Not only will you be able to choose the color that suits your desires but also it will add to the overall feel of the car giving it a brand new look to go along with its enhanced performance, improved comfort and personalized design.
