  1. Change The Exhaust

If you want to add some power to your car and make it sound like you’re rallying around a race track then a new exhaust will do the trick. If you’re handy with some tools then you can do this yourself or head to your local garage and enlist the help of professional mechanics. If you’re driving a Ford, check out some of the coolest bronco exhausts you can purchase online.

  1. Add Car Seat Covers

For a quick, cheap fix, you can add some new car seat covers. Not only will they protect your actual seats (great if you want to sell your vehicle in the future) they’re also a great way to add an individual flair to the interior that matches your bodywork. You can find a ton of cool bright and pattered covers online, or even order custom prints that will make your seats truly unique. This is a useful addition to your car if you have pets that enjoy a ride-along as you’ll be able to wash the covers at home and keep your seats fur-free.

  1. Add Tint To Your Windows

Tinted windows look sophisticated whilst adding some privacy for your driving companions. They will also help protect the interior of your car if you live in a hot state. You can follow an online tutorial and do this yourself or seek professional help. Most states only allow tinted windows in the backseats so check your area’s regulations before you start adding tint.

  1. Add Parking Sensors

If you’re not as good at parking as you’d like then sensors are a great way to help you understand the size of your vehicle without scraping the wheels or bodywork. You can buy them online and install them yourself pretty easily and they may end up saving you a ton of money in repairs or even worse, insurance claims!

  1. Add A Bluetooth Radio Kit

Whilst most modern cars come with inbuilt fancy sound systems, older models might be stuck with an ancient radio. Install a Bluetooth radio that you can connect to your phone so you can play whatever music or podcasts you like. It’s also a great way to improve safety as you can call people hands-free while you’re cruising around.

  1. Add A Spoiler

If you want your car to look like a racing beast then add a spoiler. Fiberglass is usually the best option as it’s pretty cost-effective and will help the aerodynamics of your car while boosting its aesthetic.

  1. Get It Wrapped

If you really want to stand out from the crowd then forget your paint job and opt for a cool wrap. You can be fancy with metallic chrome or bold with a bright color that will turn heads. If you’re trying to save pennies you can do this yourself, but professional services will make your car look its best.

  1. Apply Stripes

If a wrap isn’t for you then you can apply adhesive stripes that will make your vehicle look like it has spent hours in the shop having a makeover. They can help distract from dings and dents and add a cool new look to your exterior.

  1. Add Rims

Rims are the peak of car customization and can cost a fair few dollars but they’ll make your car stand out from the crowd. Opt for wide rims as they’ll help improve the smoothness of your drive but do your research and be careful to get the right ones for your car. Picking a random rim can actually decrease the performance of your vehicle.

  1. Add LED Lighting

LED lighting will make the outside of your ride stand out and is useful for a little more visibility when you’re driving at night. You can have the LED color match the exterior of your car, or pick a contrasting color for a unique look.

  1. Add A Door Light

Door lights are common but custom door lights will make your car look expensive. You can pick a logo, your initials, or create your own online if you really want to go the extra mile.
