Winter Tires, Car Sound System Upgrades, and Vehicle Accessories to Kick Off the New Year Right

Although 2023 isn’t officially over yet, you’re probably already thinking about what 2024 will bring and potential new year’s resolutions. Sure, you can be one of the thousands of people who decide to get a gym membership, but don’t overlook the other areas of your life that can use improvement.

What better way to roll into the new year than with some aftermarket car upgrades?

With 2024 on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to give your ride a well-deserved makeover. Whether you’re looking to enhance your driving experience, prepare for winter’s challenges, or ensure your car’s security, the following upgrades will help you kick off the new year right.

Aftermarket Car Audio Upgrades

The cabin experience is what separates common commuters from joyriders. If the interior vibe is off, the ride quality suffers.

So, what’s the main culprit holding your back? It’s probably your factory car stereo system. You’ve likely already noticed it’s never as loud or as clear as you’d like it to be. That’s because most car manufacturers don’t invest a ton of their budget in premium grade sound.

Fortunately, you can remedy the situation with a car audio upgrade that includes an aftermarket stereo system, speakers, subwoofers, and an amplifier to give it a little more oomph. With a full car sound system upgrade, you can finally listen to your music at its full potential. Think of it like getting the full concert experience within the cozy confines of your vehicle. Your daily commutes will never be the same.

Winter Tires

Okay, we know winter tires don’t offer the riveting experience that car audio upgrades do, but hear us out. If history has taught us anything, it’s that New Jersey winters are tough on drivers. Safely navigating the interstate with ice and snow on the ground is way easier if you have the right tires for the job.

With a winter tire upgrade, you’ll get better traction, enhanced braking, and way more grip when making turns and taking curves. Think of them as an investment in your safety and the integrity of your vehicle.

Ceramic Coating

When snow and ice hits the streets of New Jersey, you can count on NJDOT to salt the streets so residents can safely commute. There’s just one little problem – road salt is highly corrosive and will eventually damage your vehicle’s paint job.

So, what are you supposed to do? Get a car wash every time your car comes into contact with road salt? Not quite.

If you want a permanent solution, ceramic coating is one of the best new car upgrades you can get. Think of it like putting a barrier between your vehicle’s paint job and the elements. Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that bonds and hardens, providing you with years of protection against moisture, chemicals, and common road debris.

Not only does ceramic coating mitigate the wear-and-tear vehicle’s experience in harsh conditions, but it also reduces how often vehicle owners must visit their local car wash. Your car will stay glossy and shiny with very little effort needed on your end to keep it that way.

Remote Start System

Is there anything worse than looking out the window in the morning and seeing your car buried under a sheet of ice and snow?

Hacking away at your windows with an ice scraper in frigid temperatures is no way to kick off the day. Fortunately, a new remote start system can get your vehicle ready to go with a simple touch of a button.

This aftermarket car upgrade enables you to start your vehicle remotely, allowing you to finish your morning cup of coffee as your windows defrost. After about 10 to 15 minutes, your windows should be completely clear and your cabin will be nice and toasty for your morning commute.

Car Security System

Your vehicle is likely one of your most prized possessions, so it stands to reason it deserves a little extra protection. With a car security system, you will have peace of mind knowing that any would-be thieves getting too close to your ride will get an audible warning. Modern car security systems come with proximity sensors that trigger an alert when people get too close.

Should a break-in occur, your vehicle’s alarm will go off and you’ll be notified via the system’s LED remote. Additionally, many of the high-end systems come with a remote engine kill feature, mitigating the risk of a stolen vehicle.
