How to make your old car feel like a new one in four steps!

Get Rid of Imperfections

There are some telltale signs that a car has been used for a few years: dirty, imperfect headlights; dents and scratches on the doors; windscreen wipers that don’t quite perform like they used to.

Fortunately, these are all things that can be corrected quickly and easily. If you’ve got a ding in the side of your vehicle, then take your car to an expert in the paintless dent removal technique, and get rid of it. Headlights? They’re easy to switch out, and you’ll notice an improvement in visibility straight away. The same goes for your windscreen wipers, too.

Upgrade the Tech

It’s quite amazing, when you think about it, just how far technology in cars has come over the past decade. You can have just about anything and everything in a new car! However, just because your car is older, that doesn’t mean you can’t have the same great infotainment options that are considered staples of the latest models. You can.

Take a look at what’s available, and have them added to your vehicle; it’ll feel like you’ve lurched into the future, and will also make the overall driving experience much more fun.

Change the Tires

Of course, you don’t want your car just to look new; you want it to feel new, too. Well, you can, by making one simple change: the tires. If it’s been a while since you’ve had a tire upgrade, get it down. You’ll notice that the feel of your car has been improved. Oh, and they also can make your car look better. Win-win!

To the Mechanic

Finally, don’t forget to look under the hood. When you take your car to a mechanic, don’t just check that it meets the bare minimum requirements for the road; see if any improvements can be made that’ll make it run like new.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
