BMW, Audi, and Range Rover: The modification guide

car buying

Car enthusiasts are known for modifying their vehicles based on several things like performance, sound, and comfort. This is often the most exciting aspect of being a car lover. In the world of luxury car brands such as BMW, Audi, and Range Rover, we consistently see how these brands up the ante in terms of design and performance. This article will look at the popular modifications these brands offer and what to look forward to in 2024.  

BMW Modifications

Here are some of the key modifications we have come to love:

Performance Tuning

BMW is one of the world’s most well-known and coveted car brands. The brand’s slogan, “Sheer Driving Pleasure”, has encouraged many car lovers to purchase a BMW, and it makes complete sense. Not only have we come to expect a certain level of quality from this brand, but they have built a reputation that is second to none. In the past year, the brand and BMW owners have focused on engine optimisation and performance, fine-tuning suspension systems, and enhancing the exhaust structure.

If you are looking to enter a car competition, no matter the BMW you drive, expect 2024 to be filled with advanced tuning options. Additionally, artificial intelligence will make an appearance in modifications this year,  improving performance based on driving conditions.

Wheels and Tyres

There has been an emphasis on larger, lightweight alloy wheels paired with low-profile tyres. The projection for this year is pretty much the same; however, there is more emphasis on technological advancements. For example, aerodynamically optimised wheel designs that aid handling and fuel efficiency are one modification we are excited to see.

Carbon fibre updates

In the early 2000s, nearly every car enthusiast added some form of carbon fibre aesthetic to their cars. Many BMW drivers have always found that carbon fibre modifications extend beyond its appearance. However, this material remains immensely popular, and we continue to see modifications in the form of body kits, spoilers, and interior accents. In 2024, there will be more emphasis on eco-friendly alternatives, which purposely aligns with the automobile industry’s commitment to the environment.  


Audi Modifications

Audi’s slogan, “Vorsprung durch Technik”, which translates to Progress through Technology, is a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation. We see it through upgrades and modifications that only improve the cars. Here are some of our favourite modifications in recent years:

RS performance upgrades

Audi’s RS range is sheer brut performance, and it is for this very reason these cars rank high amongst car lovers. The upgrades we have seen include engine control unit remapping, turbos, and performance exhausts. These upgrades enhance RS vehicles so that they reach their full potential. The future trends look similar; however, we will see an integration of key technologies that optimise overall power.

Virtual cockpit updates

While this may seem like a minor upgrade, modifications to the virtual cockpit have become quite popular. Many enthusiasts have personalised their cockpits, upgrading their layout, playing around with colours, and including additional performance data displays that are not the standard.

The future outlook brings forth updates such as augmented reality (AR), which we can imagine will be pretty interesting. Additionally, AR will provide immersive events for drivers and allow for even more customisable digital experiences.

Flashing Lights

For the average person who only views a car as a tool to get from point A to B, light modifications mean nothing. So, upgrading a car’s LED and matrix headlights would not even be a consideration. However, trends show there has been an increase in lighting upgrades, even from people who seem not to be car enthusiasts.

We have seen many changes to turn signals and adaptive headlights. The introduction of intelligent lighting systems has completely changed the game and improved safety and driving conditions.  

Range rover modifications

Range Rover is known for its high-end features, advanced systems, and overall comfortable drive. So many wonder why you would need any modifications. Here are some of our favourite upgrades, including off-road enhancements, customised interiors, and sustainability.

Off-road enhancements

Why own a Range Rover if you are not going to go off-road? If you are planning a little adventure in rugged terrain, consider the following popular upgrades: off-road tyres, underbody protection to tackle challenging terrain and lift suspensions. Future upgrades include off-road technology, adaptive suspension systems, and possibly terrain response capabilities.

Customisable Interiors

Range Rovers already have super luxe interiors; however, bespoke upgrades have gained immense popularity. Range owners have opted for custom upholstery, premium materials and personalised finishes that include almost anything you can think of.

As part of the brand’s commitment to a more sustainable future, we anticipate that future personalised interiors will feature eco-friendly luxury.  

Electric and Hybrid Options

As the brand continues to make several strides in developing electric and hybrid vehicles, there was an uptick in conversions to both. Range owners explored aftermarket conversion kits while eagerly anticipating the launch of the very first electric vehicle from the brand.  

Which modification excites you most?

As the automobile industry continues to evolve, the customisation landscape for these three luxury brands becomes more exciting. We have seen performance tuning, custom wheels, and carbon fibre upgrades by BMW.

Audi lovers are focusing on RS performance upgrades, visual cockpit updates and lighting enhancements. Meanwhile, Range Rover drivers look to off-road enhancements, customised interiors, and electric and hybrid conversions.
