If you are passionate about your car, then you surely spend a lot of time coming up with ways to improve it both from a functional and an esthetical point of view. Whether it is painting its calipers, restoring the headlights, giving it a new paint job or even installing an alarm, there is always a lot of work to be done. So here are some steps you can take in order to make your car more comfortable.
In terms of changing the existing tapestry of your car seats, you can go one of two ways: leather or cloth. On the one hand, if it’s properly maintained, the leather tapestry does not change its aspect in time, as opposed to the cloth one which tends to get easily worn-out. On the other hand, the cloth tapestry allows you to choose from a very wide range of colors and textures, and it is less expensive.
Leather steering wheel and shifter covers
Apart from the improved esthetic aspect, a steering wheel or a shifter covered in leather gives the driver a better grip while maneuvering the car. The tactile sensation is also improved, compared to a plastic steering wheel. However, leather covers tend to get worn out quicker than the standard plastic.
Tinting your car’s windows
Tinted windows have filters that reduce the amount of light, especially UV radiations. One of its main advantages is keeping a constant temperature inside the car. Tints come in a range of different intensities, which are given a VLT (visual light transmission) percentage. The most common ones are 35%, 20% or 15% but you can also find ones with only 5%. These numbers denote how much light actually goes through the window once the film is applied. You might want to check out the legislation in your country before tinting your windows, so that you can see which percentages are legal and which are not.
In order to make your car more comfortable you can also get adjustable seats which can change their height using a manual (or electrical) adjusting system. The height of the adjustment can vary from 5 cm to 10 cm. If you want to go the extra mile when it comes to your comfort, I would also recommend a seat that can adjust the lumbar support. This type of equipment has recently become very popular, even on low cost cars.
Clean your car
As surprising as it might sound, it is extremely important to keep your car clean and organized, especially if you spend a lot of time in it. It turns out that you can improve your comfort only by regularly throwing out the trash and by keeping the backseat clean, in order to have a car you can actually be proud of.
