Want the coolest ride on the block? Check out these tips to get you there.
For some people cars are more than just a source of transportation. It’s a mechanical outfit that can be a clear representation of the person. The Mercedes Benz can represent class, a Station Wagon can represent your parent’s past, or a BMW can represent sophistication with simplicity. However, some people like to take it a step further and recreate the image of their “mechanical outfit.” The BMW 3 series can be the go to car in which people throw their personality into. The question is how do they change up their car? Find out below how to trick out your BMW 3.
Decide What Must Be Done
So you’ve decided you want to pimp out your ride? At the final stages, you will be in awe at how much it stands as one of the top dogs among other cars on the streets. Yet, you got to figure out how to get it there first. Think about what types of styles or modifications you want. Do you want some flashy rims, a car that bounces, or an interior with flashy neon lights? Read some car magazines or online blogs for inspiration. Remember to make sure that your car represents you.
Now that you know what you want to do, it’s time to get started on the first part of the transformation. It’s best to work on the body since this is where the eyes of your peers will be glued to first. You can get a body kit from the manufacturer or from after-market distributors. You can get this for all types of models and can start the work in your own garage.
The Paint Job
Make your car your canvas. Let your imagination run free by painting all sorts of styles and art work on your ride. Pinstripes, fierce flames or murals are some different types of paint jobs you can do to your car. If you’re not an artist, there are many out there that will be glad to do the job for you. Hire one and see your BMW really transform.
Rims and Tires
If you’re into street racing, aluminum rims and run flat racing tires are the go to addition to your whip. There are all types of rims to choose from whether it is white side-wall tires or spoked wheels. Choose to your pleasing.
Dress Up the Interior
The inside has to reflect the out. Put your personality into your car. You may want to add a chain link steering wheel to a low rider or you can place matching racing seats to your BMW 3 series floor mats. Throw in some sound systems, gaming consoles, or video monitors to really trick out the technology in your ride. You can also add leather, tuck and roll, or crushed velvet to the upholstery.
Pimp out the Mechanics
Let your inner Fast & Furious roar with tricked out mechanical modifications. You can put in suspension hydraulics to get it to “bounce” or modify the power and drive train to increase performance. It’s very important to have a professional do this work because it is very complicated. You don’t want your tricked out ride to be a tricked out mess.
At the end of this process, you will truly have a car that represents you.
