If you own a 1993 Hyundai Elantra, we’re sorry. Just kidding, Hyundais are very well-built cars that don’t look too bad either. However, your Elantra is quite old and quite outdated and could probably use a complete facelift. In fact, it needs a whole lot more than just a facelift. But you have had your Elantra a very long time and it’s part of the family. In addition, it has been very reliable and you see no reason to retire it at the moment.
What you need are a few ways in which you can make your Elantra look better, er, more modern. We can help.
The first thing you want to do is give your Elantra a thorough and deep cleaning, we are talking about washing everything and shampooing the trunk. While you may occasionally run your Elantra through the carwash, we are betting there are still Big Mac wrappers stuffed under the front seats. You will be surprised at how much difference a clean car makes, in looks and smell.
Upgrade the Technologies
Sorry, but modern cars do not have tape decks. Pay a visit to a car stereo shop or another similar type of store and invest in a new car stereo. Get one that has the touchscreen and cool lighting effects. And while you are at it, swap out those 75-inch woofers in your trunk with something a little more subtle.
When you washed your Elantra, you were surprised to discover that under all that dirt and grime was a car in desperate need of a paint job. Now, you don’t need to go all out and spend thousands on a custom paint job, at least not on a Hyundai. Instead, get the cheapest paint job you can find and add some cool looking pinstripe stickers for effect.
Fix the Cockpit
Focus on all the knobs and dials you touch while driving your Elantra. That woodgrain dashboard cover really looks like a good investment. And now might be a good time to change the dashboard illumination light as you haven't’ seen how fast you have been going at night for several years. It is amazing how much difference these small changes make.
That’s right, slap on a set of wheel spacers to give your Hyundai Elantra a look of class, style and elegance. Seriously, wheel adapters even make Hyundai Elantras look better.
