We’re sure you love your car, but like the rest of us, you might sometimes look at newer, cleaner models and think: ‘I wish that were my vehicle’.

Don’t feel guilty – it’s natural! Alas, we can’t fork out the cash to buy a new car every time our used model fails to live up to our lofty expectations. However, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it, oh no: why not take your vehicle and make it feel like new? It’ll reinvigorate your love for driving the vehicle and won’t cost you thousands that a new model would! How do you do, I hear you ask? Read on and take our advice.



Yeah, you might have guessed that our first bit of advice was “give it a clean”. But we’re not really talking about cleaning your car, we’re talking about cleaning your car. It’s not enough to run through the car wash and give the insides a quick hoover: you have to get down and dirty with your car, really scrubbing the hard to reach spots. It’ll take time, and you might even want to get professionals in to do it, but it’ll feel much better than whatever you normally do to clean your car!

Getting a Better Performance

No matter how good your car might look, sometimes it’s hard to replicate the feel of driving a car at the top of its game. That’s why you’re able to make some quick adjustments that will make it feel brand new. For starters, take a look at Wiltshire Tyres for new wheels and improve your traction and performance. Tyres can make all the difference. Also look at replacing your shocks and struts – you wouldn’t believe the difference they can make.

Not The New Car Smell, But…

You’ve never really going to get that new car smell back, so don’t even try. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try anything: an improved smell does make your car feel different. If you’ve been driving for a long time, an air freshener won’t cut it – you have to get down the basics. Clearing out your car’s air conditioning ducts will make the air in your cleaner and fresher, and all it takes is a quick job.

Newness is in the Details

A new car’s feel lies all in the details, so this is where you’ll need to focus. Replacing or at least giving your wipers some TLC will improve performance, while fixing any of the frayed sides in your car will give your car a superior all round look.


Bringing Back the Entertainment

Car entertainment can change so quickly in today’s market. What was once cutting edge two years ago is now obsolete. You don’t have to live in the past; upgrade your car’s entertainment to include the latest features and your car won’t just feel new – it’ll also feel fun! How you improve is up to you, but in our opinion a car without an aux and hands free calling option may as well be stuck in the age of tuned radios.
