6 Tips to Make Your Car Look More Luxurious
If you are a great fan of cars with not such a great budget, there might be an opportunity for you to play around and create a car you have always wanted, or at least a look-alike. You can do it with a couple of adjustments and on a fairly modest budget. There will always be something you can add or improve but these couple of tips will help you cover the basics.
Set it into a Four-point start
What do you think gives racing cars the sleek look? Apart from the body line, they are closer to the ground and they seem like they are on starting blocks ready to sprint off. You can easily do this for your car, take it to a body shop and have them lowered. This will make your car look sportier. Before you decide to do this, consider the terrain you mostly drive on. I would not recommend this if you often use country roads.
Work on the wheels
The easiest thing to do to make your wheels look cooler is to get cool hubcaps. Getting new wheels and tires with a larger profile might end up being an expensive option. One thing you can do and it will pretty much cost you nothing is to clean your wheels and spray your tires daily for that fresh black look. One thing to bear in mind if you do decide to get new wheels with a larger diameter and tires to match is not to throw your car off balance.
Customize the interior
There are several things you can do to make this a luxurious ride for you and your passengers. First of all, you can purchase leather seat covers for your car. Another alternative is suede, real or artificial. If you are not a leather kind of person, buy upscale comfortable covers, they are bound to look better than the old ones. Replace the upholstery and buy new mats. Depending on the style you are going for, you can have your trim, instrument panel and door panels made out of wood. Get a cover for your steering wheel to match the rest of the interior. Replace your gear knob with something more stylish. Purchase a new stereo system and replace the speakers. If the car is spacious enough, think about practical accessories you may want such as a back seat TV for the kids.
Work on the exterior
Look up your favorite cars and try to find a shade as close to their original color as you can. Also, you can look up popular car colors and use one of those. I’ve heard people say that any car looks call in black matte. A cheaper alternative to repainting the entire car is using vinyl foil. You can choose a pattern you like the most and wrap your car in it, This way you will preserve and prolong the lasting of the original paint which apart from aesthetics, has a role in preventing corrosion.
Block the curious looks
This is how you can add an air of mystery to your vehicle. People from car and auto tinting shops in Sydney report that most of their customers use window tinting for purely aesthetic reasons. Apparently, if you are trying to stay incognito, you must be important, important people are by rule rich and thus their belongings luxurious.
Now that you have touched-up the most of your exterior, it is time to work on the details. Luxurious cars are not only comfortable and classy, but they are also mean machines. Get an exhaust tip with big holes to fake that look. Customize the headlights. Change the grill so it matches your shiny hubcaps. And finally, this takes a bit more effort and a bigger chip into your budget, but depending on the style of your car and the look you are trying to achieve, you can add faux air vents.
Be creative with details and accessories. If you take your time, the investment will not be so hard on your pocket. Remember to take your car for regular maintenance and stay safe. Since we are all about pretense and looks in this article, make sure your car is always neat, clean and waxed.
