Additional Lighting
Have you always wanted to go four-wheel driving but haven’t had the best lights for premium visibility? Or, do you want your car to stand out from the crowd with some rainbow-colored light strips? There are various lighting options such as LED light bars, headlight upgrades, interior LED lighting kits, and fog light upgrades that can see your vehicle looking sharp and road-ready. The best part is, these are all simple additions you can make to your car from the comfort of your home.

Seat Covers
If you’re happy with the performance of your vehicle but the seats are garish, this isn’t something you can easily change. Fortunately, the options for new seat covers are endless and offer you the opportunity to get creative. You can opt for the standard neutral colors from your local auto accessory store, or even import seat covers from your car’s manufacturer.

The benefit of buying seat covers made for your vehicle is that they will always be the right fit. As a result, no one needs to know that your brand new leather seats are anything but the original styling.

Shift Knobs
If your vehicle has a manual transmission, then you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to the shift knobs. While your car may have come with a drab black gear shifter, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Instead, you can select from the thousands of different designs on the market – all of which are simple to install on your own.

Stickers, Films, and Decals
There may be a million or more cars like yours in your city, but how many of them have flames up the side, colored headlight film, and stick-on pinstriping? It’s fair to say there wouldn’t be many. Adding these accessories to your vehicle can “pimp it” in the best possible way.

Firstly, stickers and decals are an affordable modification that can easily be done at home, and secondly, they’re entirely reversible. If you decide that you’ve grown up from the ‘90s flames, you can remove them with (often) no harm done.

You don’t have to be a tech whiz to install electronics in your vehicle. Nor do you have to spend much time tinkering with them, either. When it comes to electronics for your car, the options are endless. You can opt for music players that connect through your cassette player, or even coffee cup warmers, phone chargers, window defrosters, electric heaters, and TV screens that power from your 12-volt cigarette lighter port. All of the many options available are sure to make traveling far more convenient, while also adding to the value of the vehicle in many cases.

When it comes to making modifications to your car, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars consulting experts. Instead, all you need is a decent set of instructions, an imagination, and a few hours up your sleeve. When your car is looking a little drab, consider trying out these inexpensive car mods and put your vehicle in a league of its own!
