You’ve finally bought your dream car, and it’s everything you’d hoped it would be. Still, it’s not really yours — it’s just like every other one of its kind out there. To plant your personal signature on your car, you need to consider a few upgrades to make it stand out as your own.
Here are some low-cost options that will transform how people view your vehicle.
1. Vinyl Wrap
If you want to change your car’s look, vinyl wrap is the best way to go. It’s not a permanent solution like paint, but it’s a way to make your vehicle look however you want without committing to a certain shade or style. You won’t be able to change the color after you apply the wrap, but it can always be removed if you decide you don’t like it.
2. Upgraded Wheels
One of the easiest ways to get your car noticed is to upgrade your wheels. You may pay a little more for them than the other items on this list. Rims can be customized for everything from performance to style, which ultimately doesn’t affect your vehicle but can make it look so much more luxurious when you show it off to other people or at events. Which wheels you opt for is up to you — just list what benefits you’re looking for. Check out all of our wheel collections to find a style that matches your ride!

3. Switch up the Interior
If you’re bored with your luxury car’s interior, you can change it. Adding seat covers is an inexpensive way to show off your style by changing your vehicle’s appearance. You even have the option to warm your seat, so you can stay comfortable while riding in style. Plus, they’re inherently protective — and much cheaper to clean if something stains the cover rather than your actual seat.
4. Window Tint
Tinted windows can offer you privacy and greatly enhance the look of your car at the same time. Dyed window film is likely the best option, as it has no metallic substances that will negatively interact with electronic systems. You can pay a professional to apply window tint to your vehicle or do it yourself with precut film.
5. Get a Signature Fragrance
Many people think about having a signature scent for themselves, but not many consider applying the same logic to their car. Is there something you’d like to smell whenever you get into the driver’s seat? You might choose something that relaxes you, like lavender, while muscle cars might call for an invigorating scent like citrus. Make sure it’s something you enjoy and will make you look forward to driving.
6. Protect Against Theft
This upgrade protects your car so it can continue looking amazing in your possession. If your luxury vehicle doesn’t have a built-in alarm, you can place one in your car, along with a GPS tracker that’ll help you see your car’s location at all times. You love your luxury car and paid so much for it — it only makes sense for an upgrade to be useful and aesthetically pleasing at the same time, especially when it comes to safety.
7. Replace the Hood Ornament
Some cars still have hood ornaments, but many don’t have them anymore. You can always remove it, but why not replace it with a custom one that signifies that your vehicle is unique? You may have to pay a couple of hundred dollars for a professional to install it correctly. If you have the budget for a luxury addition, you’ll enjoy having a hood ornament that is entirely your own.
Create Your Dream Car
You may have imagined owning your luxury car for years, but have you really made it your own yet? Customizing your vehicle to the best of your ability can help it stand out and allow people to recognize it as yours, knowing that there are no others just like it.
You don’t always have to pay big bucks to customize your ride. These examples are just a few ways to transform your luxury vehicle into one that reflects your aesthetic.
