Top 3 Most Common Car Modification Mistakes

Car modification is more popular now than it has ever been before. When people buy a car these days the factory issue lights, factory paintwork and factory stereo are sometimes not enough and thanks to the availability of many sources of custom car parts the possibilities are practically endless for making your car stand out from the crowd. The problem is though that while enthusiasts may want their car sound like it has a V8 engine or sit low on its suspension so it looks like a touring car, they may not have the technical or aesthetical skills to ensure their car still looks good and runs well.

Here are the 3 of the main mistakes people make when modifying their car.

Bad Taste

There is no accounting for taste, especially when choosing a spoiler or a whole body kit. How often have you seen a car trundling down the high street looking like an alien child toy. Choosing the wrong body kit for your car can be done easily as they are often bought from magazines or from websites that don’t tell you much more than that they will fit on your model of car. Body kits need to be subtle in order to avoid looking stupid. The same goes for other custom body parts like spoilers and bonnet scoops which when out of proportion with the rest of the car can look really bad. Make sure you find out exactly what your car will look like with the body kit or other custom part on before you hand over your cash, and make sure you get a second opinion.
