12 Holiday Gifts for Car Lovers
Posted onThe holidays are here, and that means it’s crunch time for gift shopping. If you have a car lover in your life but aren’t an enthusiast yourself, figuring out the perfect gift may be a little difficult.
But never fear! RGX Rim Repair is here with our top gifts that are guaranteed to get any gear head’s engine revving this holiday season.
1. Factory O.E. Wheels
Few things will get your loved one in the holiday spirit faster than a new pair of OE/OM wheels. At RGX Rim Repair, we can get almost any OE wheels you want shipped to you in just 2-3 days. Plus, you’ll save 50%-60% more than you would from buying directly from the manufacturer.
2. A Roadside Safety Kit
Breakdowns and accidents happen and when they do, you’ll be much better prepared if you invest in an emergency car kit. AAA’s roadside emergency toolkit has everything you need, from basic tools to jumper cables to a complete first aid bag. With one of these, you’ll be prepared for almost anything!
3. Chrome Plating
What better way to dress up boring, plain old rims for the holidays than with custom chrome plating! RGX uses a 5-plate process, so you’ll know you’re getting the highest quality chrome possible. On top of that, all new chrome plating we do automatically comes with a 2-year warranty.
4. A Phone Mount
Nowadays, most states have “hands-free” laws that prohibit drivers from touching their phones at all while operating a vehicle, which can make using your navigation app a little tricky. That’s where cell phone mounts come in, and iOttie’s cell phone mount is top-of-the-line. It uses a sticky, gel suction cup to attach to your dash or windshield, and locks/unlocks your phone with just one touch.
5. Wheel Customization
If your loved one wants to add a little color to their rims without the cost of buying new ones, custom wheels are the way to go. We offer finishes in gloss, matte, or satin using either traditional paint or powder coating. The best part is, you can select virtually any color you want and see what your new wheels will look like on your car with our wheel customizing tool.
6. A Handheld Vacuum
Cleaning up leaves, dirt, and crumbs can be difficult without a small vacuum, and Dyson’s handheld vacuums are highly rated. Their slim design and superior suction power will help you reach every last nook and cranny and keep your car’s interior free of gunk and grime.
7. Headlight Restoration
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer, and the weather is getting… more wintery. Now’s not the time to let your loved one drive around with foggy, dirty headlights, so why not give them the gift of professional headlight restoration? We’ll remove oxidized residue, polish the lenses, and use a clear coat to protect them in the future. Your loved one gets clean, like-new headlights and you can rest easy knowing they’ll be safer driving in winter weather.
8. A Dash Cam
More and more people are starting to use dash cams, and it’s no wonder why. Not only can they can be extremely helpful if you’re involved in an accident, but your camera’s footage may even be useful if you catch someone else’s car accident. Designed by Anker, the Roav DashCam A1 has all the features you need within a still-totally-reasonable budget.
9. Brake Caliper Restoration
Dirty, dusty, ugly brakes can be a thing of the past with RGX’s custom brake caliper restoration. It’s the perfect way to protect brake calipers and give your loved one’s car a totally unique look. And, just like with wheel customization, we can paint your brakes in almost any color you want!
10. An OBD2 Scanner
It’s not always convenient to go to the mechanic, and that’s where this handy tool comes in. OBD2 scanners can be plugged into your car and used to read error codes or let you know why warning lights are on. FIXD’s OBD2 scanner is affordable and it uses Bluetooth to connect to your phone for an even more convenient experience.
11. Ceramic Coating
Ceramic coating for rims is a subtle way to protect wheels from the elements and create a shiny, high-gloss surface that’s easy to clean and care for. Ceramic rim coating can be applied to any surface and, when you have it done at RGX Rim Repair, a 2-year ceramic pro warranty is included in the price.
12. A Car Care Kit
With new rims and a spotless interior, there’s nothing left but to make sure your loved one can give their car some finishing touches. Meguiar's Ultimate Kit has absolutely everything anyone could need to care for a car inside and out, from wax to polish to microfiber towels.
From everyone at RGX Rim Repair in Charlotte, Fayetteville, Wilmington, and the Triad area of North Carolina, we wish you and your family Happy Holidays!
