With just one quick search online, you can find dozens of “quizzes” where you can quickly find out which type of car matches your personality. While you secretly might be hoping a New Jaguar XE comes up as the result, don’t worry if you end up getting something less interesting instead.
The reality is, these quizzes are just for fun, and you probably shouldn’t take them seriously when you’re considering buying your first car.
The most important things to actually consider when buying a car include your budget, the type of driving you’ll be doing, and the safety of the vehicle.
Of course, it can be fun to get your car to match your personality once you’ve already bought it! With that in mind, let’s go over some tips you can use to help your car stand out from over 80 million that are sold worldwide each year.
Get a Paint Job
Just like painting a room in a house is a great way to change the whole “look,” the same can be said for your car. If you purchase an old vehicle, a fresh coat of paint can make it look brand new. Or, you can choose to paint it in one of your favorite colors as a way to showcase your sense of style.
Cars should always be painted by a professional, so take it to your local detailer to determine the best route to go for a custom paint job.
Floor Mats & Seat Covers
Nowadays, you can find floor mats and seat covers in almost any color and with different designs on them, from sports teams to animals. You can easily express your interests while protecting your car’s seats and floor all at once. It’s an inexpensive and quick way to show off some of the things you like. Anyone who gets into your vehicle will know right away what your interests are.
Decals and Details
Sometimes, the little details can make a big difference in showcasing your personality through your car. Whether you want to tell the world about your favorite band, a cause you support, or just encourage someone to laugh when they pull up behind you, decals and bumper stickers are a great way to express yourself.
The best part? They don’t have to be permanent, so you can change them out as your tastes might change.
Hanging a personal item from your rearview mirror is another effective way to show off your personality with something that doesn’t have to be permanent. Plus, it can be a great conversation starter for anyone who gets into your car.
Your car should be a place where you’re comfortable, so it’s normal to want it to match up with your personality. But, you don’t have to drive a specific make or model for that. Instead, focus on the changes you can make both on the interior and exterior, and the small touches you can add to make your care a reflection of who you are.
Don’t be afraid to get creative!
