The Two Best Car Upgrades That You Can Do at Home
Everyone loves driving a high performance vehicle. The feelings of power, efficiency and speed that no other experience can quite match; it’s intoxicating. Sadly, we are not all millionaires and we can’t all drive around in supercars like the Lamborghini Diablo. However, we can increase the appearance our current vehicles and improve the experience well beyond what the stock configuration can offer. Fake it ‘til you make it, as they say.
Everyone seems to jump right to supercharging the engine when they talk about upgrading their cars, but that is easier said than done.
I always suggest starting simple and upgrading your headlightswith a set of HID lights. Not only do they look amazing, but these HID systems are more efficient and offer much greater visibility than standard halogen bulbs. I should be clear that upgrading is not as simple as putting new bulbs in your car. HID lights require a specialized series of ballasts and electronics that can be bought as a kit and installed into most modern cars. The installation is pretty simple and, if you follow the included instructions, you shouldn’t have any issues.
A body kit can help you improve the appearance of your car, but the right body kit will also improve the performance of your vehicle by reducing drag and improving aerodynamics. This upgrade takes a little technical skill, but the result can be dramatic. I always suggest only buying body kits from a reputable dealer to reduce the risk of scratches, dings and cracks that might require a higher level of skill to repair than you might be ready for. I also suggest only installing body kits on cars that have never been in an accident as collisions can alter the shape of the frame in a minute way that will make a body kit fit poorly.
You might not have the fastest, loudest and most powerful beat on the road, but by upgrading to HID lights and a kicking body kit, you’ll be turning a lot of heads and leaving a big impression in short order. Worry about the big upgrades that nobody can see later.
