Upgrading your car doesn’t have to be a huge endeavour and a major expense. There are so many cool car accessories out there that can elevate your driving experience, keep you safe and make your life easier.
Here are seven cool accessories for your vehicle that you didn’t even know you needed – but you totally do.
A Remote Starter
You might have never heard of this, but it’s a pretty important one. In fact, a remote car starter will be a game changer, especially during months of harsh weather.
These devices allow you to start your car from pretty much anywhere and get the temperature just right before you even get behind the wheel. No more frozen steering wheel on the way to work.
A Bluetooth Adapter
If you drive an older car, you might be struggling to listen to music with an aux cable or even by listening to old CDs. The solution is definitely to invest in a Bluetooth adapter.
These adapters can either fit into your aux cable or your lighter socket and will connect your phone to your car’s speakers flawlessly so you can finally catch up to the rest of the world.
A Rear-View Camera
A backup camera has loads of benefits for your overall safety and well-being. If your car isn’t already fitted with one of these, you’ll soon see why they made this list.
These cameras are affordable, easy to install and will make reversing and parking much safer and easier, and can even help to prevent collisions – a huge bonus.
This might not strictly be considered an accessory, but it’s certainly worth investing in to improve your driving experience. Tinted windows in your car can add an extra layer of privacy and security.
You’ll need to have this done professionally but it will be well worth it – plus, it looks cool too.
A Car-Seat Mirror
If you have kids, a car-seat mirror is a must.
These accessories allow you to keep an eye on your little one in the backseat quite easily without craning your neck, turning around too far and taking your eyes off the road – which is where they should be!
A Magnetic Phone Mount
Buying a car phone mount is an essential for drivers who don’t have an infotainment system built into their vehicle. These are usually cheap and easy to install by simply sticking to your dashboard.
Once installed you’ll have easy (and much safer) access to your phone while driving for GPS or playing DJ.
A Trash Can
Finally, one that might sound a little strange is a trash can for your car, and yes, you read that right.
You can buy a container that looks good and adheres to the back of the driver’s seat to function as a trash can. This is a great investment for people who can never seem to keep their cars clean and end up with a pile of junk all over the floors. Simply pop trash into the bag until you’re ready to empty it out.
