4 Things You Should Expect When Upgrading Your Car

According to Kelley Blue Book, the average transaction price of a light new vehicle sold in April 2019 was around $36,843. With the average annual salary tipping lower scales, even the thought of purchasing a brand new car without breaking the bank can give you goosebumps.

The good news, however, is that you don't need to buy a brand new car with all expensive devices and technology packages. At Wheel Enhancement, we help Los Angeles car owners give their trusted ride a facelift. You choose your upgrades based on your vehicle type, driving style and your overall interest without spending a fortune.

Read on to find out everything you need to know before upgrading your car.

Wheel upgrades

Upgrading your wheels is a quick and straightforward way to improve the speed and feel of your car dramatically. Swap out your basic factory wheels for a set of either P101 or HRE R101 Lightweight HRE performance wheels, and you will notice the difference straight away. Besides HRE wheels, you can also consider other top-quality wheels such as BBS and pair your wheel section with Michelin or Pirelli tires in Los Angeles. Choosing aftermarket rims in Los Angeles can certainly help if you choose them wisely. However, if you can't stand the look of your OEM wheels but don’t want to spend on a new set of wheels, you can opt for our wheel restoration services.

Exhaust upgrades

With most cars, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to torque and horsepower. That does not mean your current vehicle is poorly made. Many manufacturers go for cheaper alternatives when it comes to performance parts like exhaust systems.

Upgrading your car with aftermarket exhaust systems can, therefore, improve your engine flow. Improving the engine flow with the use of exhaust upgrades will make your vehicle more powerful and sound aggressive.

Performance Suspension Upgrades

Installing performance suspension upgrades is another way of modifying your vehicle. The secret with this type of car upgrade is building a car with optimized springs, chassis and ride control components.

Your car will be pieced together from performance springs, coil covers, wheel spacers, wheel adapters, camber plates and other parts. It is all about better car balance, handling and overall performance.

Other custom upgrades

You can also expect other custom installation upgrades such as brakes for improving your vehicle's braking performance and ECU flash for improving drivability and fuel economy. You can also consider aerodynamic modifications for reducing drag and increasing fuel economy. All these upgrades can keep your car looking like it just came off the showroom.
