Before You Modify Your Car, Here are 4 Things You Should Know

Looking to get into the Car Modding scene? There’s a large community to find there, however also a lot of easy mistakes to make if you don’t know any better. That’s why in this article we’re going to go over some of the most important things that you need to know before you modify your car.


Check The Warranty


A warranty is a protection you can get when you buy a new car that assures that should specific parts of the car breakdown and need to be replaced, those replacements will be provided and installed by the manufacturer free of charge or at a reduced rate.


You may already see the potential problem, but to state it clearly you can void your car's warranty by replacing the parts that are covered by it. This isn’t necessarily the end of the world, it just means that should the parts you install breakdown the entire financial burden will be on you to get them fixed.


Before you start modding the car, it’s worth looking into exactly what the warranty is actually covering and what their policy is on modifications.



Resale Value


Something big you need to understand about car modifications is that while they may be more expensive and higher quality than the stock parts, most mods will actually lower the resale value of the car.


Modifications are inherently personal, and when you're trying to sell a car that can be massively detrimental because what you like isn’t what everyone else likes. 


People also prefer to have stock parts on their car because they’re much cheaper and easier to replace, so when you modify your car it’s always worthwhile to keep the original parts to reinstall before you try and sell.



Research Your Parts


There are lots and lots of options out there for your modifications, however not all of them are built to the same standard, so before you start putting things in and on your car you need to make sure they’re up to the task.


Buying from random people online or any company that hasn’t been reviewed is a big risk, likely if you’re getting into car mods you have some knowledge of car mechanics and his things should look, so make sure you give everything a thorough examination before you buy parts to modify your car.



Stay Safe


Making sure your car is safe may not seem cool, but safety should always be your top priority. Never add modifications that will change or degrade the core integrity of your car, else your modifications could end up costing you massive amounts of money in repair costs.
