If you feel like your car is a little run-down or worse for the wear, there are a few things that you can do in order to upgrade it a bit. Each upgrade will improve your car in different ways. Try one of these upgrades to breathe a bit of new life into your old car.

Replace The Windshield

If you have an older windshield, a cracked or damaged windshield, or just have a plain run-of-the-mill windshield that you are sick of, one way that you can upgrade your car is to get a total windshield replacement. Instead of just switching out your normal windshield with another normal windshield, think about buying a windshield with extra features. You can buy a windshield that is made from special laminated safety glass, which will hold the pieces of glass in place when the windshield is damaged. You can also opt for windshields with a protective coating that makes it more resilient to cracks and breaks. 

Tint Your Windows

One way to upgrade the appearance of your car in a snap is to get your windows tinted. Window tint makes your car look more chic and sophisticated, but it also adds a few practical benefits. Window tint prevents harmful UV rays from penetrating your car and damaging the upholstery. It also provides a layer of protection, preventing would-be thieves from peering into your car. 

Buy New Rims

New rims will instantly brighten up your car, especially if your old rims are faded, cracked or broken. There are a huge number of rim options available, and you can choose from a large number of spokes, to small number of spokes. You can choose standard silver, or opt for the more flashy gold rims. Whatever you choose, it will brighten up your car. 

Get A New Paint Job

If you car's paint if fading, chipping or rusting, one way you can makeover your vehicle for a relatively cheap price is to get it repainted. Before you have it repainted, make sure that you remove any of the permanent damage, like rust. For slightly rusted spots, you can just sand the rust away. Contact a mechanic to have more extreme rust spots dealt with. There are a huge number of colors that you can choose to repaint your car, from classic black to vibrant yellow, and the cost of having your vehicle repainted averages at the low price of $556. Once your car is repainted, you will be surprised at how much newer it feels!
