There are many things you can do to a car to make it feel more like yours, most of them requiring very little effort at all!
- Get customising- it could be stickers, a steering wheel cover, or a certain kind of air freshener – there are tons of little additions you can purchase to make your new, used car feel more homely.
- Something smell fishy? You may not notice, but your car most likely has a certain smell to it, which is why getting into someone else’s car can confuse your nose slightly. If you’ve bought a perfectly fine used car for sale, but it still smells off you to, purchase the air freshener that you used in your old car. This also works if the previous owner smoked, had a pet, or wore a certain perfume, bearing in mind that certain scents can still linger slightly even after a good clean.
However, more unpleasant or more stubborn smells may be an indicator of a hidden fault with the car – such as bacteria or mould in the ventilation system- which is when you should take it to a garage.
- Colour of choice- you’ve purchased the perfect used car; everything is working correctly, it’s a pleasure to drive, and you’re not too much out of pocket. Great! Just one thing, though; the colour isn’t exactly what you like.
It may be odd, but the colour of your car does actually influence how much you enjoy driving it. If you don’t like the colour of a used car, you can always take it to a professional to get painted. It will be costly, mind.
If you’re still determined to have your car fully reflect your personality, why not take to the likes of Pinterest to find out more ways to get crafty?
