According to data from the Department for Transport and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, there were 39.2 million licensed vehicles in Great Britain as of June 2021. Some see them as simply a means to get from A to B, but others treat their car as their pride and joy. If you fall into the latter category, perhaps you want to make sure yours stands out among those 39.2 million.

Here are just a few ideas you might like to try.

Vinyl wrap the interior

Many enthusiasts opt to vinyl wrap the outside of their cars in order to protect the paintwork from cosmetic damage. But did you know you can do the same to the interior? Given the number of features on the inside of the vehicle, it can be quite a tricky job, but the sleek finish is well worth it.

Reduce the noise

Want to keep noise pollution to a minimum? You could add another muffler to your exhaust system, but you’ll need to make sure you have the right drill bits and accessories for a safe, efficient installation.

Steering wheel covers

You can personalise these to your heart’s content – in your favourite sports team’s colours, for example! You need to be able to retain full control of the wheel, so don’t choose anything in a material that is too slippery. Perhaps you could choose something furry – perfect for those cold winter mornings.

Tint your windows

A lot of celebrities and high-ranking officials travel in cars with tinted or blacked-out windows for security reasons. This can add a sense of mystery, but it’s important for you to abide by UK law if you’re thinking about tinting your windows. The back windscreen and rear passenger windows can be as dark as you wish, but the front windscreen needs to let at least 75% of light through and the two front side windows at least 70%. Otherwise, you may not be allowed to drive your car until the tint is removed.

Install interior lights

This should never be done in a way that could distract you as the driver, but subtle illumination around certain parts of the interior can transform the experience for you and your passengers.

Install video screens

Are you often travelling with little ones in the back? If they’re not a fan of long journeys it can soon turn into a nightmare trip, so you might want to consider ways to keep them entertained on the road. One possible solution is to install video screens in the back of the headrests, which will allow them to watch their favourite films and programmes while you get a little peace and quiet to concentrate on your driving.
