3 Ways To Give Your Old Car An Upgrade

Car upgrades and gadgets

If you have an old motor in dire need of modernising, rather than shelling out on a brand new car, why not consider giving it an upgrade?

With just a little bit of money, elbow grease and the right level of engineering knowhow, you can help give your car a new lease of life, taking it from frazzled to fresh in no time at all.

Listed below are three great ideas to get you started.

1 – Invest In A Smart Display

Using a phone while driving has been illegal in the UK for years now, but a number of people still do it anyway.

As a result of this, Apple and Google decided to do something about it, trying to encourage people to focus on the road instead of trying to reply one-handed while steering.

Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto now offer easy, hands-free access to all the calls, messages and notifications you may miss while driving.

What’s more, since they connect so seamlessly to your phone, they can also allow you to listen to your favourite playlists, podcasts or utilise Siri/Google Assistant.

2 – Install Parking Sensors

If parking is your Achilles heel when it comes to driving, why not get a helping hand?

Parking sensors can enable you to get into even the tightest of spaces with ease, becoming activated whenever you put your car into reverse gear.

Plus, regardless of how old your car may be, adding parking sensors can be relatively inexpensive.

However, if you’re not comfortable installing them yourselves, it will probably be worth getting an engineer to fit them for you

3 – Rear View Cameras

Rear view blind spots used to account for more than 15,000 injuries each year, largely due to drivers not being able to see what’s behind them.

Thanks to the emergence of rear view cameras though, this number has plummeted as a result, saving drivers potentially thousands in terms of insurance and legal fees.

They’re also fairly inexpensive to install but, again, if you don’t feel comfortable fitting them yourself, it could be worth asking a professional to do it for you.
