There’s no doubt about it: Americans love their cars. Ever since people took to the open road to see this great country of ours, millions of drivers have lavished extra TLC on their cars. To that end, Thompson Sales discusses the seven most popular car modifications.

1. Spoilers

Spoilers make a car look awesome. These modifications change the aerodynamics of the rear of the vehicle, generally right above the trunk or cargo space. Spoilers add downforce on the rear wheels and make the car hug the road better.

2. Window Tint

Window tint has come a long way since merely darkening windows. Window tint comes in many different colors, from brown and black to red and green. States strictly regulate how much tint you can put on windows and where it goes on vehicles. Thompson Sales can recommend a window tinting company if you desire a different hue on your windows.

3. Special Paint

Do you love orange and red flames along the sides? How about a cool 3-D rendering of a dragon or other animal painted on the hood? You could even have your company logo put on your vehicle. Thompson Sales believes the car should reflect the personality of its owner, and a custom paint job is the perfect way to do that.

4. Turbochargers and Superchargers

Turbochargers and superchargers are designed to boost your engine’s performance by adding more air and creating more power. States may regulate these modifications, but most turbochargers are okay so long as they don’t exceed vehicle pollution standards.

5. Sport Seats

Sport seats are more comfortable than ordinary seats. They can hug your back, support your spine, and even improve your driving position. One main drawback is that sport seats may not be street legal, so it’s important to find a manufacturer that installs the right sport seats.

6. Tires

High-performance tires represent a great choice for a car modification that helps your vehicle in many ways. Excellent tires improve braking, acceleration, handling, and cornering. Thompson Sales has a tire department with many choices to help you pick the best upgrade for your vehicle.

7. Suspensions and Shocks

Everyone wants a comfortable ride. Upgrade yours with a heavy-duty suspension and shock system that absorbs more of the forces your tires absorb when they hit bumps in the road. The service department at Thompson Sales can install suspensions and shocks for you.
