Information On Car Tuning And How To Do It

Aug 14, 2008
Automotive fanatics are probably a big fan of the car tuning industry- in which they work their best to make their vehicle look great, run better, and last longer. And since there are so many ways to make an addition to different models and makes of a vehicle, most tuning jobs often result in a unique and personalized product that shows one's creativity.

The first thing that comes to mind when discussing tuning subjects is the engine of the vehicle. This is the very heart of the car, and where most of the performance tweaks and modifications are going to take place. If an automotive fanatic is purely looking for performance over style, this is the place to start.

A good body kit is giong to do wonders for a body tuning job. Body kits make a vehicle look just as impressive as they are beneficial to aerodynamic ratings. Getting an aerodynamic body kit allows for better gas mileage- which will eventually pay for itself over the years if all goes well.

Another cosmetic tuning job would be to redo the paint on the vehicle in question. Even a simple pin stripe is going to be costly- so be prepared to shell out the big bucks even for the little additions. Full-fledged paint jobs will likely cost a couple of thousand dollars, so be sure to debate whether or not the cost is worth the effect.

Keep in mind that not all tuning kits are legal in some parts of the world. Some countries demand that blue lights not be used, since emergency vehicles commonly use such lights. In the majority of places, neon lights can't be used since they are seen as distracting. In the case of neon lights, there are usually some loopholes where the lights can be used while parked for "show"- but specific laws differ from one country to another.

As a last note of caution, anyone who is planning to put a modification to their car should check with their manufacturer to see if it may void their warranty. It is certainly not worthy losing a warranty if the modification is only for show or only going to benefit performance minimally. This is especially true if the owner doesn't have enough money to fix the car should it break down- in which case the warranty would have been good to have.

In Conclusion

Car tuning as a whole continues to be popular as a way to express how one feels about their vehicle. If you are interested to take this a step further, try consulting local auto dealers for local laws and even your manufacturer to check what would void the warranty and what wouldn't.
