That is why we have a list of car upgrades to make life much better for you and your loved ones ranging from convenience to comfort and safety. Best part? If you want to sell your car, perhaps these car upgrades might just push up its valuation!


car dashcam

We’ve seen those scams. People jump in front of cars and intimidate drivers into paying huge sums of money so they don’t get into trouble. Dashcams can save you trouble and let the police know that you are, in fact, innocent. There are even options for rear cameras, internal cameras, and even audio capabilities! No matter the situation, your dashcam can easily help abang polis make a decision on who’s at fault in an accident.

For a very inexpensive price of a few hundred Ringgit, you can buy and install a dashcam onto your car which will protect you, your passengers, and your wallet. Plus, potential car buyers also love it when you sell your dashcam and accessories in a single sale – talk about convenience!

Who’s going to say no to a little additional help when it comes to parking (especially parallel parking!)? Visual aids can be very helpful to make up for it and to reduce accidents or even simple car damage. In this case, installing a reverse camera on a car can make parking significantly easier – whether you’re a seasoned driver or newbie who needs a helping hand.

Even if you are certain of your driving skills, you might miss a low obstacle, pets or even small children that your sensors can’t detect. A reverse camera can prevent a tragic backover accident from occurring as you can clearly see what’s behind you. This, of course, means you will need to install a dashboard screen in your car, which brings us to the next point.

Installing an aftermarket dashboard screen is a pretty common modification. It improves the car’s functionality by allowing your car to connect to a variety of other features. For example, you can connect your dashboard screen to your dashcam and reverse camera, allowing you easy access to both. This dashboard screen can also connect to your phone via Bluetooth. That way you can view your GPS directions on a bigger screen instead of a diminutive phone screen that is sitting on a phone holder. If you’re thinking of selling your car in the near future, then this car upgrade is definitely worth its salt and future buyers might just appreciate this good upgrade!

If your car does not come with one, this is a modification you might want to consider if you drive a high car like an SUV. This extra step will make it much easier for your little ones and elderly members of your family to get in the car. As with all things, making things more accessible also helps when you or your passengers are fatigued or even when you have a simple injury like a sprained ankle. Get yourself a side step and you can say goodbye to heaving yourself into the car when all you need is to make two small steps.

Boot organiser

Boot space is limited. But if you organise that space, you can maximise the usage of that space. You will be able to give the permanent items in your boot a home, i.e. a permanent spot, and better organise the groceries you buy.
