How to upgrade the car you don’t want to sell

Most know when it’s time to buy a new car. The mileage counter keeps ticking over. You end up going back and forth the mechanic more than usual. Its less responsive than it used to be.

Sometimes it’s easier said than done. Attachments to cars are easily made especially after years of memories. As summer clicks on there may be a nagging thought in the back of your head telling you it’s time to move on.

How about upgrading and changing what you already have instead of swapping out the entire vehicle? These tips can help you look at your car in a new light.

Make it feel right

The way a car feels can determine how you feel about it. Start from scratch. The case may be that you’ve never got the best out of your car in the first place.

See if you can get the engine mapped for ultimate performance. If this is out, you can start to look for bespoke parts to improve the engine. Czok high performance parts can help here.

Maybe it just doesn’t feel as smooth as it used to, in which case you may want to take a look at the suspension package.

Remember, don’t put things in your car that it can’t handle. It could end up making it feel worse or even wrecking the engine entirely.

Appearance is (mostly) everything

In most cases people love the way a car looks and luckily for the most part it’s the easiest thing to upgrade. Sure, enthusiasts fall for the way a car feels but the most would be lying if they said they wouldn’t care about the way a car looks.

So change it up. It can be subtle or all encompassing. Think about the wheels. A change in alloys can make all the difference. Or just think about getting your current set refurbished and they’ll look as good as new.

Forward and rear lights can be changed out for more modern ones. You can even make changes to the bodywork. If you’re looking for something totally new then get a respray, this coupled with bodywork can result in a completely different looking car and the change up you always wanted without buying a new one.

Buy new, keep old

Face it. Sometimes you’ve just got to change up. Remember, the more you use your beloved car the more you’re running it down. How about keeping it but not using it as much?

Maybe it’s time to get that new car after all, but keep your current one for nostalgia and special occasions. For a start you need to make sure you have the space. A garage would be perfect to protect it from the elements when its under cover for extended periods of time.

You also need to make sure you run your car on occasion. If you completely don’t run the car for extended periods of time the battery will die and the fuel may turn. Take it out once a month at an absolute minimum.
