Car upgrades you might want to own

Written by Henry Young. Posted in Autos

During the last years cars advanced extremely quickly. This is the reason why every car lover needs to be informed about the latest trends and upgrades. Knowing about sales and offers and adding a new touch to your vehicle is exactly the manner you are going to gain popularity among other car enthusiasts.

Living in an era of technology will make each and every one to crave the latest updates, no matter what is it about. If you are a car passionate then you should know how easily upgrades appear on the market. Buying a car that is custom built and everyone else can get might be quite disappointing for you because it doesn’t have any kind of individuality or personality.  That’s why looking for ways to personalize it is absolutely essential for obtaining that upgraded car you dream of.  Here are some ideas that might help you upgrade your car:

GPS Systems

First thing that may pop in your head is that you don’t exactly know all the roads in the world. A car GPS system is completely paramount given the fact that without it you might find it troubling to find the road to your destination. A Global Positioning System works as a navigation device in order to track and tell your exact location. The GPS network works with the help of several satellites which orbit around the Globe. By transmitting signals to each receptor these signals are allowing the user to see their location along with the maps. By owning a GPS you assure the safety and a more efficient and facile way to drive.

Physical maps are difficult to use and it requires stopping along the road and guessing where you are in order to know where you need to go. Using them will mean you’ll make a lot of mistakes you might not even know about until you reach an unknown place. A GPS will show you the way to your destination and will guide you through it at each and every step. This will allow no mistake-making. The GPS system should be programmed before leaving and not while moving. Although the GPS might have hands-free calling options or help buttons with maps that show special checkpoints on them, the driver should be focused to the road and deal with these features when stopping the car.

Brake Kits

A brake kit implies choosing the right brake pad and brake rotor. Yet, you will need to know how to choose it. Driving your car each and every day means the brake kit you own will get used over time. You will feel this while driving and pressing the brake. Brake pads with enhanced rotors are recommended for the best results. You will need to look for brake kits that fit your original equipment braking system. This is not a pricy option and it will make a great difference when driving your car.

Body kits

Changing the appearance of your car is the most used method to personalize it. How can you do that without going into bankruptcy? Well, it is quite simple. Making your car stand out stands within increasing engine performance, rims, tires, exhaust, door handles and so on. You’ll have to take into account the type of the materials used, the cost and durability balance, the reparability options and the performance when needed. First things first you will have to decide the look you’d like your car to have. When talking about a personalized car with lots of features that represent its owner, then go for a distinctive, eye-catching look. If not, there are more simple and sleek options to select. Either way, the aspect of your car will be changed and you won’t have to worry about finding a car identical with yours in traffic.

If you don’t have the budget for changing the entire body of your car, try using contrasting paint colours and other cheap materials that can change the aspect of it. You will be able to choose between body kits that change both the way a car looks and the way it performs. Setting up the budget from the beginning will help you build a mere idea about what your vehicle is going to look like without any kind of issue.

Turbo

If you are a performance car lover you should already know about what a turbocharger is. It is a turbine forced induction device which operates as a power boost for your car’s engine. Although they are mostly used on vehicles such as trucks, trains or aircraft, putting them on cars is not unusual either. When enough kinetic energy is built in the exhaust gasses the power will be boosted and the results will be mesmerising.

Subwoofers

First, you need to decide what size would be suitable for your car. There are subwoofers which are ranging grandly in size. Also, the amplifier setup should be matching the power and the space you want to cover. Additionally, you will need to choose a personalized stereo system because each car requires a certain setup. Usually, the enclosed subwoofers should have the following specs: high power, high sensitivity, high frequency rate, a certain number of voice coils (depending on what you need – there are single and dual voice coils, but you should opt out for a dual voice coil) and impedance. Try looking for these when choosing subwoofers and make sure they fit.

Tires

Tires are a big part of the personalization process. Again, you’ll need to be careful with sizing. Depending on the car type that you are owning there are recommended measurements for tires. Look them up and only then start searching for specific tires. Flexibility is what you need to strive for. Don’t try buying tires that fit at the very limits. As you may know, there are all-season tires that are great for grip and long mileage, performance tires (with better speed rating), all-terrain tires, winter tires, summer tires etc. Choose wisely and make the required changes.
