4 Ways To Give Your Car A Makeover

As Tim Westwood was fond of telling us, pimping a ride is a whole lot of fun. This particular joy isn’t exclusive to bouncing suspension or gold-plated grills; anyone on a regular budget can add little touches to their vehicle, hitting the road with a bunch of fresh features guaranteed to turn heads.

At York Auto Centre, we love meeting people who want some more pep to their driving – it challenges us to think of new ways to give a car a makeover, some of which we’d like to tell you about.


  1. Repainting


Even the most sought-after cars can look weather-beaten, especially if yours has crossed more miles than you can count. Touching it up with a new paint job can be just what you need to rejuvenate your travels.

A bright glaze of paint will make even the oldest ride seem brand new. If you really want to push the boat out, consider a patterned effect, or choose a sleeker metallic sheen for a professional, chrome-like appearance.


  1. Speaker systems


Most vehicles come with some form of built-in audio system, yet there’s always room for improvement on this front as far as we’re concerned! It’s not all about that bass, but new subwoofers will give your sing-a-thongs after work the backing they deserve.

There’s a wealth of speakers on the market offering levels of clarity, volume, and even wi-fi capabilities, as high quality kit becomes more affordable and easier to install.


  1. Wheel alloys


Wheel style matters – you’d look strange walking down a high street in a pair of clogs, no? –  and having an eye-catching alloy design could be just what your car needs for an effervescent appearance.

We aren’t talking about ‘bling’ specifically, although flashy choices can look brilliant when fitted to the right vehicle. For a safer bet with plenty of class, explore options like spoke, inverted, or oval models. Our car tyre specialists can advise on a suitable companion for your wheels and taste.


  1. Upholstery


First impressions count, but you should also make sure that when your passengers sink into their seat, they aren’t disappointed. Upholstery really can make all the difference to the overall look and feel of your car interiors. Got a rip in your back seat, or are the front seats starting to fade? It may be time to reupholster.

We hope we’ve revved up your inspiration for a slight overhaul of your vehicle’s style and texture. It’s important to feel good about the car you drive, if only because it’ll keep you stimulated for the remaining years and decades you’ll spend on the road. After all, driving should be a pleasure that doesn’t fester with age.
