Car Enhancements

Professor and philosopher Marshall McLuhan once stated “The car has become an article of dress without which we feel uncertain, unclad, and incomplete in the urban compound.” For many men, that “article of dress” is not ready to wear until it’s been accessorized. This may be the only kind of accessorizing a man ever does, and when it comes to enhancing the most important possession in a guy’s life, some fellows may need a little help. For men looking for a guide to happiness through car accessorizing, here are four car enhancements that are well worth splurging on.

Dash Cam-Navigation Tool

The Garmin mapping tool, the nüviCam LMTHD is one of the best and most creative navigation tool designs out there. The nüviCam doesn’t just effortlessly get you where you’re going; it is a dash cam that automatically and constantly records the road conditions and any occurrences, so if you are in an accident, the dash cam will show the details. Additionally, it includes features only found in the newest of cars like forward collision warning and lane-departure warning. Most impressively, the nüviCam supports hands-free driving by syncing to your smartphone.

Interior Lights

The dash cam is an accessory of functionality, but maybe you want less “function” and more “fun.” If that is the case, there’s an array of interior light sets to brighten the inside of your vehicle. To be a law abiding citizen and avoid being pulled over, the interior lights need to be installed in the dash area or under the seats. The effect is then as legal as it is dramatic. The glow from these LED interior light strips can be as simple or complex as you want. Available in red, blue, green, yellow, purple and even in light patterns, they’re perfect for a sleek sports car like the Chevy Camaro. These flashes of color create a futuristic yet sophisticated look, adding to the already distinguished character of a beautiful car. Match them to the Camaro’s exterior paint job or use them to illuminate just the cabin. It’s an easy accessory that takes your ride to the next level.

Quality Stereo Speakers

No ride is complete without a little treble and bass. Alpine SPS-610C 6.5″ component 2-way speakers  are top of the line in the industry. These Type-S series, mid-level car speakers are suitable for any kind of vehicle and pair well with a set of subwoofers, Type-S or Type R. The high bass levels and wide-range silk dome tweeters generate outstanding mid to high notes in songs and the vocals are crystal clear. To enhance the physical appeal of these babies, purchase the grills, sold separately, to accent the interior of your car.

Dual-Zone Portable Electric Cooler

If you have ever packed a cooler full of sandwiches and drinks for a road trip only to open the lid to a slimy mess where you got to your destination, then you know how ingenious this invention is. The CFX-65DZUS is a go-anywhere refrigerator and freezer that is as rugged as your good looks and as powerful as your Hemi engine. Forgot having to stop for ice on the way out of town; this baby boasts 120-volt AC, electronic thermostat with LED digital temperature display and has folding carry handles for easy transport, but you pay for convenience.
Though accessorizing might seem like a woman’s game, even the manliest of men can get behind souping up his ride. Any of these enhancements will make your prized possession one of a kind.
