The perfect ways to improve your car

Your car’s a star, a motoring wondering, a thundering engine with luxurious leather, a revving roomy vehicular spectacular that could out-strip a Formula 1 car without even hitting the accelerator.

Well, at least that’s what you’d like to think. In this little old world that we call reality your car is a bit more of a stinker.

Its exhaust fumes smell like eggy farts, its engine sounds like a dog’s whimper after its tail’s been stepped on, and you’re certain you’ve spotted Lewis Hamilton hiding in your garage, pointing and laughing at your puny Punto.

The truth is, your car isn’t a star. But this article is about to change all of that.

We’ve come up with a few ways to make even the scummiest of four-wheelers look like shining motoring beauties. Take a look at what we’ve come up with.

Seats to die for

Even if you’ve got a car that would struggle to win a race against a milk float, your interior could make all the difference. But what if the fabric on your seats resembles a dog’s chew toy? What if the plastic dashboard is more scratched up than a man who’s just been in a fight with Wolverine? What if your flooring has more litter on it than Pilton the day after Glastonbury?

Well, we’ll tell you what if. First, let’s fix those seats. You’ll need some cracking fabric spray adhesive and possibly some stitching to ensure that all your seats are as comfortable as a sultan’s palace. We’d recommend purchasing the highest quality goods you can to ensure a long-lasting fabric quality.

Next, your dashboard. You’re going to have to replace this entirely to ensure the best quality. Shell out and you’ll be satisfied.

And finally, your flooring. Haven’t you ever heard of a hoover? Purchase a car-friendly hoover to clear out those nooks and crannies, and some carpet cleaner to give it a professional looking sheen. And that’s it – you’re set.

Wax on, wax off

A bit of spit and polish is a brilliant old phrase, denoting a work ethic that anyone can aspire to. But for this section of the article, we’re not recommending spitting on your car. A little of polish, however, could do the exterior of your vehicle the world of good.

Try to polish your car at least once a week to ensure a sheen that’s smooth and consistent. Not only will this give it a clean feel, but it’ll also make bird droppings far easier to remove, if you haven’t got any Car Wax I’d recommend checking out this car wax guide to find the right wax for you.
