The driver side tail light in my Audi R8 has died out on me after years of service, and I'm currently looking for a replacement. I'm just wondering whether there's any sense to replacing both instead of just the one that is damaged. What would you suggest?
Well, if both of the tail lights in your car were installed at the same time, then you can expect them to have the same life expectancy more or less (although several factors might come into play here). Most drivers would replace just the tail light that's damaged because it would be cheaper. However, if both lights were mounted at the same time, then it might not be long before the other one gives up and dies on you as well. What you can do is buy a pair for a replacement, install the driver side tail light in place of the damaged light, and keep the other one for when the other light gets damaged. This way, you won't have to order again and spend twice on shipping or trips to the local store.
The gauges in the instrument cluster of my vehicle look fine, but I want them to look more visible and catchy. What upgrades are available to achieve this kind of look in my car?
There are two things you can try to make your vehicle's gauges look more visible and appealing. The first is by adding LED lights. These lights can come in different bright colors that would make the gauges stand out, especially when you're driving at night but also during the day when there's too much background light and the gauges would often be more difficult to read. Another way is to make the needles look brighter. There are aftermarket gauge needles available in the market today, and they can be great customization options. Or, you can also paint the existing needles in your gauges with neon colors for improved brightness and appeal. Whichever option you prefer, just remember to go for upgrades that will look well with the overall appearance of your car interior.
The front end of my Audi R8 looks a bit bland, and I'm looking at getting some upgrades. One area I'm looking at upgrading is the headlight area, but I'm not sure what kind of upgrade to get.
When it comes to upgrading the headlights of your car to improve overall vehicle appeal, you can either replace the headlights or simply add headlight accessories to get improved looks. If you plan to replace the lights, you have a wide range of options available—HID, Xenon, LED, and many others. Just remember to get lights that will not only improve your driving appeal but also your visibility on the road; choose headlights that emit bright beams. Another option is to get headlight trims, simple materials that give the headlights an extra boost of appeal. These can come in chrome, black, and other attractive colors to give the headlights a more eye-catching look both day and night.
