Pimp Your Ride: 8 Cool Things to Do to Your Car (Without Breaking the Bank)

Are you looking for a way to make your ride all your own? Then it’s time to add some custom modifications.

Some vehicle modifications can get really pricey, though. So you may have some well-founded reservations when it comes to changing much on your vehicle.

No need to fear though, there are plenty of cool things to do to your car that won’t break the bank. To get your creative juices flowing, here are eight ideas you should consider.

1. Windshield Banner

If you’re looking to tell the world about your favorite things, consider adding a windshield banner to your vehicle.

Want to show off your favorite band? Do it!

Have a message you want to share with the world? Put it in a windshield banner.

No matter your interests you have or what you have to say, you can display it on your windshield. This is a great way to personalize your car without spending a lot of money. In fact, this option is so inexpensive you’ll have plenty of funds to make other modifications as well.

Your personalization options aren’t limited to the message or image. You can choose from fonts, colors, and more when creating your design.

2. Jazz up the Lights

You may not have thought of changing up the lights on your car. If you haven’t, it’s time to start thinking about it.

Your car’s lights aren’t just the things that light your path and warn other drives as you cruise the highway. They’re also part of the overall front-view look of your car.

There are all sorts of lighting options for the front of your car. Change the color of your headlights, if you want to. Or add light behind your car’s grille or brand logo.

Whatever you do, you’ll be able to change up your car’s lights without spending a lot. It’ll definitely give your car an entirely new look. You may even want to back into your driveway from now on, so everyone can see your new light job.

3. Vinyl Stripes

Is owning a race car one of your probably-not-obtainable dreams? If so, you need to check out vinyl striping. Adding vinyl stripes will give you the sporty, race-car-like look you’ve always wanted–without the cost of a race car.

These vinyl stripes fun from the nose of your car to the back, giving it that striped look that says “I’m serious about speed and fun.”

Get the message across that you love your car and you intend to drive it often, by adding vinyl stripes. Just don’t forget that looking like a race car driver doesn’t mean you should drive like one.

4. Upgrade Your Sound System

Are you still driving a vehicle that only has radio and cassette capabilities? Even worse, your ride may only offer radio for your road trips with your friends.

If so, it’s time to upgrade your sound system! And the great news is, it won’t cost you all that much.

Choose a sound system upgrade that offers CD-player capabilities. Or maybe you’d like an aux port or Bluetooth connectivity. You can have all those things if you want, all without breaking the bank.

If you’re really looking to save some cash, check a local junkyard for a compatible sound system.

5. Install Vanity Plates

Try updating your license plates for a fun and inexpensive mod that people are sure to notice. Everyone driving behind you will undoubtedly see the message you decide to present.

Vanity plates allow for user-chosen messages instead of the automatically-assigned plate numbers issued to most people.

Nods to sports teams, hobbies, and more are ready to be shared on your license plate. Be aware, though, your state will have rules regarding these types of plates and you’ll have to follow them.

6. Upgrade Your Exhaust System

The typical exhaust system on an everyday car isn’t all that exciting. With some inexpensive modifications, though, your exhaust system could be an eye-catcher.

Different exhaust systems have different sounds as well as different looks. Shop around to find out which option would be perfect for your car.

7. Add Interior Lighting

When we say interior lighting, we’re not talking about reading lights and the overhead ones that turn on when you open your car. No, we mean specialty lighting that will take your car to a whole new level.

What are we talking about, then? LED interior lighting. This can add all sorts of character to your vehicle. Have it run in lines all throughout the interior of your car, outlining the dash, the inside of doors, and more.

Or for a totally different feel, why not add colored lighting in the foot areas under the dash?

You have lots of options when it comes to fun interior lighting. So get creative and see what you can do with your vehicle.

8. Install Killer Rims

The rims of your vehicle are some of the most noticed outside elements of your car. When they zoom by, they’ll grab attention, and they can grab just as much, if not more attention when the car is parked.

You can choose just about any design you want when it comes to rims. Research the different metals, colors, and more you can use to make your car’s outward appearance a cut above the rest.
