In today’s market, many cars come standard with a wide range of special features that help to add a new level of comfort and convenience. Even with these state-of-the-art features, it is still nice to be able to customize your car and put your own special touches on it to make it as unique as you are.

The cost of customizing your car can become quite expensive depending on what modifications you are wanting to add to it. In order to completely customize your car while still staying within your budget, you will want to start with a car that is not too expensive.

Luckily, there are several pre-owned vehicles to choose from that do not come with an outrageous price tag. Most of these cars are also fairly easy and inexpensive to modify. In order to better illustrate our point, here is a list of some of the most affordable cars on the market that are easy to modify.

Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wranglers are one of the most popular vehicles to modify. There seems to be an endless amount of aftermarket Wrangler mods to choose from. Wranglers are already made for extreme off-roading. But if you want to make sure that your Wrangler is able to go on any terrain, you can add a lift kit and all-terrain tires. With just those two advancements, your Jeep will have no problem climbing over large rocks and bumpy hills.

If you want to take your Wrangler on a late-night off-road adventure, you can add LED headlights and a light bar to increase visibility.

Grab handles are another popular mod for the Wrangler. There are several different styles of handles to choose from. Some are made to conveniently wrap around your Jeep’s frame. There is also more heavy-duty grab handles on the market that bolt to the inside of your Jeep. No matter what style of grab handle you choose, they are all pretty inexpensive and easy to install.

Floor liners and entry guards can help to keep your Jeep in pristine condition. And adding a VersaHitch can add some more versatility to your towing capabilities.

Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevy Camaro is one of the most impressive American-made muscle cars. However, whoever said that you can’t improve on perfection has never seen a super modified Camaro. Chevy offers a wide range of Camaro mods that can help to increase performance and add a whole new level of style.

For better performance, you can upgrade the air intake system and exhaust system. There is a wide range of exhaust headers to choose from, which will help to give your car an extra boost of power. If that doesn’t give you the kind of power that you are looking for, there are a wide range of supercharger and turbocharger kits that you can add to your Camaro that will definitely give the engine the kind of kick that you are looking for.

Would you like to make your Camaro a little more aerodynamic? There is an endless amount of spoilers that are capable of fitting the Camaro. Although some spoilers can be a little expensive, there are several to choose from that are only around $100.

Mazda MX-5 Miata

With its powerful engine, sporty suspension, and agile handling, the Miata is one of the most popular choices of cars to modify. While this car is already impressive, there are a few ways to make it more race-ready. 

One of the first things that most drivers go for when trying to modify their car is the tires. Having the right size tire is crucial when customizing your car for speed.

However, one thing that is just as important as the tire size is the weight of the flywheel. Having a more lightweight flywheel can help to reduce the amount of resistance that is obtained during acceleration. This will essentially help you move through the gears faster because the RPMs will be able to rise and fall more quickly.

Like the Camaro, performance modifications are also a popular choice for the Miata. Exhaust upgrades and turbocharger kits can be added to the car to give a big boost of power and help it to run more efficiently.
