The experts often say that a vehicle should be an extension of the driver. Therefore, going the extra mile to ensure that the car is tailored to your needs should be top of the agenda. A few simple tricks can make all the difference, and will make you far happier behind the wheel.

Here are five of the best solutions at your disposal.

#1. Buy The Right Vehicle

First and foremost, you need to find a vehicle that is suited to your personal requirements. An 18-year-old college student will want different things from their car than a 45-year-old mother of three. Taking your life situation into account, including your career, is vital. Whether it’s an SUV, a sporty supermini, or something entirely different is a personal choice. Either way, selecting the most suitable car for your needs will form the strongest foundations for long-term success.

#2. Upgrade The Tech Features

The right model and trim of car is one thing. However, it’s equally vital to make those minor internal adjustments that can enhance the comfort and performance of your ride. Most modern cars come with Bluetooth and Sat Nav. Adding parking sensors, improved sound systems, or in-car DVD players for the kids can make a big difference. Spending a few hundred dollars can completely transform your drive for life. In many cases, the resale value is boosted too.

#3. Opt For Personalisation

Making the car truly feel like yours will seriously boost your feelings towards it. Private number plates are perhaps the best solution at your disposal. Not only will they promote a greater love of the current vehicle, but they can follow you for life. While it isn’t an investment that actively changes the driving performance, it will enhance the experience. The status gained from having a personalised number plate cannot be ignored, and can be enjoyed by every driver on the market.

#4. Embrace The Power Of Colour

The choice of car colour is certainly one of the most important decisions for your happiness levels. However, if you’re planning to stick with your current motor, there’s still plenty you can do. Seat covers are a particularly good option. Other accessories such as coloured wing mirrors are great too. Alternatively, if you have the funds, a car wrap can completely transform the look. Appearances count for a lot and will influence your love of driving. Do not ignore it any longer.

#5. Look For Mechanical Changes

Even the right vehicle won’t be naturally tailored to your exact driving preferences. Therefore, you can look to suspension lifts, new tyres, and similar tasks to make a difference. This should be supported by regular servicing and maintenance. When it is, maintaining the car’s best performance is easy. It may boost your safety on the road as well as your enjoyment of the ride. Again, this may be a far more effective (and cheaper) solution than upgrading to a new vehicle.

With support from these simple tips, the road to happy driving never looked better.
