Two must-have accessories that every car owner should buy

Ethan Andrews

There are certain types of car accessories which can make your vehicle more enjoyable to drive. If you own a car, here are two accessories that you might want to consider buying.

Comfortable, stylish upholstery

If you use your vehicle almost every day, it's worth purchasing high-quality upholstery for your car seats.

There are several reasons why you should consider doing this. Firstly, cheap, poorly-made upholstery tends to fray and develop holes very quickly. This can affect the appearance of your car interior, giving it a neglected and unattractive look.

Secondly, cheap upholstery that is made from rough fabrics can also be very uncomfortable to sit on, particularly in instances where you are wearing shorts or a skirt and your skin is, therefore, coming into direct contact with the material. In this situation, the fabric can irritate your skin and even leave you with an unsightly rash.

As such, if you take pride in the appearance of your car and want to feel as comfortable as possible during your road journeys, it's a good idea to invest in the highest-quality upholstery you can afford. Leather, vinyl and nylon are all excellent options.

A car cover

If you don't have a garage on your property in which you can park your car, or if you have to leave your car parked on a public street when you go to work each day, you might want to buy a car cover.

A cover of this kind usually takes just seconds to place onto and remove from a car, and can drastically reduce the frequency with which you have to wash your vehicle, as it prevents dust, leaves, dirt and bird-droppings from landing on the roof, bonnet and windscreen whilst it is parked outdoors. It can also prevent the water and mud from nearby puddles from splashing onto your car tyres when other vehicles drive past.

Additionally, because it blocks out UV light, a car cover will help you to slow down the rate at which your car's paintwork fades (frequent exposure to sunlight can degrade the chemical pigments in car paint).

When shopping for this item, make sure that you choose a cover which has a waterproof outer layer (to stop rainwater from seeping through it) and a soft, smooth inner layer (to ensure that your car does not get scratched by the fabric each time you put on or take off the cover).
