Cars are cool, there’s no doubt about that, and with the progression of technology marching onward, cars only continue to get cooler as they become more sophisticated and powerful. So, to keep your car’s performance at its best while looking as good as the day you bought it, here are some of the best ways to improve your car.
While the most well-known benefit of car detailing is that it gives your vehicle’s paint a lovely, refurbished shine, there are greater benefits to be had. Many detailing options—such as a ceramic coating—add a protective layer that shields your car’s exterior from debris that would scratch the paint, water that would leave behind water stains, or even the UV-rays of the sun that would fade the paint. Other detailing options such as paint decontamination will help remove contaminants that’re too difficult to get out with just a normal car wash—things like tar, iron deposits, or sap.
Upgrading the Exhaust
One of the best ways to improve your car is, rather than a more powerful engine, upgrading your vehicle’s exhaust system. Replacing the stock exhaust pipes with higher performance ones will allow your car to expel exhaust more efficiently. In return, your car will increase in horsepower and torque while also improving its fuel economy.
Improved Spark Plugs
A high-quality pair of spark plugs will do wonders for your car’s performance and lifespan. Good spark plugs ignite the fuel faster which then allows the engine to combust said fuel much faster. The best part is that getting this kind of performance boost isn’t even all that expensive. Quality spark plugs will typically cost you only a few dollars more than a standard pair.
Quality Air Filters
Like spark plugs, investing in a high-quality air filter will give your car a boost in horsepower and torque. It’s a very inexpensive way to upgrade your car, and a higher quality air filter does a better job protecting your car from dirt, debris, and dust. This greater protection will allow your engine to enjoy a longer lifespan by staying free of contaminants.
