Are you driving around in an older car? Maybe you’re not ready to buy a new car or maybe you simply can’t part with your current vehicle. Whatever the case, we get it. But just because your vehicle is older, doesn’t mean it can’t look great.
Here are 5 ways to make your old car look new:
1. Replace floor mats
Floor mats are a simple way to make your car interior look fresher. They also help shield your upholstery from everyday wear and tear and keep your interior in good condition. There are a few choices when it comes to floor mats. Carpet floor mats are soft to the touch, but put up a hard line of defense against your floorboard. WeatherTech liners prevent stains, stop spills and provide year-round protection. They also prevent wear, snags and rips caused by foot friction. Either way – invest in some new floor mats to spruce up your car.
2. Shampoo seats and carpets
Another great tip to make your car look like new: clean your upholstery. Look for social coupons and deals with local detail shops to have your seats and carpets vacuumed and shampooed. If drink and eat in your vehicle, you know you need it. If you have kids, it’s a must! Clean upholstery can make a car feel practically new inside – and smell good too.
3. Update your stereo
Nothing says dated and tired like an old car stereo. So trade your old radio head unit for one that integrates with an iPod, iPhone or satellite radio, and includes a Bluetooth connection for your mobile phone. Check out our audio upgrades like BlueConnect Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System and Interface System for iPod. Even with installation costs, it doesn’t take much dough to seriously upgrade your commute entertainment … and bring your car into 2016.
4. Invest in wheels and tires
New tires and wheels not only make your car look newer and better, they are also important for the performance of your car as well as your safety. Good tires enable your car to do everything better. New tires have the proper inflation to save you gas and make your ride smooth. And of course the proper tread depth provides the best traction for your safety. New, bigger tires are the single most impressive way to change a car’s performance and appearance. And shiny wheels make any car look brand new. Just schedule an appointment to get your new tires.
5. Restore your headlights
Go look at your headlights. You might be surprised to notice they look cloudy and dull. Today car headlights are most commonly made of polycarbonate instead of glass, which makes them far more durable. However, this material is more likely to become yellowed or dim over time, which is where headlight restoration services come in handy.
Headlight restoration not only enhances the overall look of your vehicle, but it will also increase your level of safety. Whether your headlights have become oxidized due to regular wear and tear or if you are in need of replacement lights, getting them restored will make them look like new.
