A lot of people have never purchased a brand new car in their life wisely letting the original owner absorb most of the depreciation cost. No doubts, you know a bunch of such car owners who enjoy all the bells and whistles when the sharpest drop has already happened, at the same time driving a vehicle that looks like it just rolled off the dealership lot.
Don’t be jealous of your friends’ or colleagues’ extremely good-looking cars because yours can look even better – here are four tried and true ways to give your car an awe-inspiring new look!
Give Your Car a Nice Hand Wash
As incredible as it may seem, thorough cleaning works miracles. We do not mean touch-free car washes – apparently intended to save your time and paint, they don’t actually do a good job when it comes to removing dirt. The latter tends to build up pretty quickly, especially in certain hard-to-reach areas, seeking an in-depth hand wash, spiced up with plenty of scrubbing. Needless to say, a fresh coat of wax will add to the overall striking picture.
Change Seat Covers and Floor Mats
An easy and inexpensive, yet pretty effective way to enliven the interior of your car is changing the worn-out upholstery with new seat covers and floor mats. Just a heads up, stay away from cheap variants as they look even cheaper than they cost. Plus, the quality of such covers leaves much to be desired and they are not comfortable to sit on.
Clean the Interior of Your Car
Even the most expensive seat covers or floor mats we’re plotting to buy won’t make much difference if the interior of your car is screaming for a top-to-bottom cleaning. If you are not one of those extremely pedantic people, then you will have to roll up your sleeves.
Start from checking what’s hidden under the seats and removing chocolate wrappers and empty cans. Moving forward, thoroughly vacuum the carpets and seats, clean the windows, wipe down all the plastic parts and trim pieces, and do not forget to clean the ashtray. If you think it’s a heck of a lot of hassle, then consider hiring a professional detailer, all the more so, they are equipped with a variety of specialized tools and products.
Nowadays, you even do not have to waste time driving somewhere and waiting for your car to be serviced. The great bulk of people have already switched to Mobile Detailing that provides for the opportunity to get the job done anytime and anywhere. They simply come to your location – home, office, friend’s place – and revamp your car by cleaning and reconditioning its interior and exterior.
Replace Your Wheels
If you’re not the best at parking (just like many of us), consider getting shiny new wheels able to make your car look a few years younger. Alternatively, you can take advantage of powder coating to refinish your existing wheels.
As you can see, you can easily have a car that not only looks great but also feels new. Try one of these ways to give your car a glorious look (or all four) and see the difference instantly!
