Our new Scion in Orlando are pretty unique options – if you want something that embraces individuality and innovation, these are your go-to vehicles! These cars are so unique and eye-catching that they typically don’t require much customization; they stand out all on their own without even having to try. However, we know that some drivers like to take things to the next level with custom parts and accessories, which is why we sat down with our sales specialists and Toyota techs to get the do’s and don’t’s of customization – after all, the last thing you want to do is impede your new Scion’s performance or bring down its resale value, right?
What should you avoid when customizing your new Scion?
We’ve got tons of way for you to customize your new Orlando Scion right here at our dealership; we have a fully stocked parts department that offers Genuine Toyota and Scion parts, and they can help you order anything that might not be on the shelves at that moment. However, if you’re taking on the customization project solo, here are some parts and accessories that you should try to avoid!
1) Bright custom paint colors or graphics: While bright paint colors like orange, purple, and green might look pretty cool on your new Scion in Orlando, you have to think about the effect they’re going to have on the resale value of your car later down the road. Most drivers tend to prefer colors like white, black, silver, and red, so painting your ride a bombastic hue might take some money out of your pocket when you go to sell – prospective drivers will be considering how much it’s going to cost them to paint over it! Think twice before you paint your car if you plan on selling it in the future!
2) Aftermarket wheels: A lot of drivers love putting aftermarket rims on their new Scion to add a little bit of flash, especially when the car’s in motion. However, go for the expensive ones if you choose to make this customization – cheap rims or spinners can actually impede your car’s performance or even cause damage to it, meaning you’ll have to shell out more money for repairs on top of the cost of the rims themselves. This is definitely a time to sink money into a high-quality product if it’s a part you want to add to your car!
3) Body kits: A lot of our new Orlando Scion options actually come with cool body kits already installed, but a lot of customization enthusiasts like to swap them out for other body kits. Again, if you’re going to take this step, be sure to think about how it will affect your resale value down the line. If the body kit is excessive or extremely flashy, it may turn prospective buyers away!
