Have you personalised your car?

my car - Car with daisies on

I own a black Ford Ka which is a very popular colour, make and model of car so I felt I needed to make my car look as if it was owned by me. First I added a few bumper stickers on there rear window but I still mistook my son's teacher's car for my own and nearly got in it. Then I added some lovely lilac dice hanging from the rear view mirror and a lilac steering wheel cover but that wasn't a big enough statement. I bought some lilac and purple daisies off the internet and stuck them all over my car now everyone know's it is my car!! Next I am going to get some, yes you guessed it, lilac seat covers. I have got kids and would find them very practical. I have not named my car, it is a car!! Have you done anything to your vehicle that tells everyone who's vehicle it is? Have you given your car a name?

Hi Humbug, Well if I see a car with lilac and purple daisies in the West Country I toot and wave as I'll know it is you LOL. I have had three cars with names, Angie, Jammy and Lady because of what the number plates spelt but the car I have now has a fores reunited sticker in the rear window and and angel cat by the mirror which looks over me and protects me on journeys, I know it is my car but it doesn't really stand out from the crowd. Huggles. Ellie :D

i use to love my car, but it failed the mot, so at the moment i have to share my husbands. It does'nt feel the same now. He has the radio on a different station than me, i have to put the seat forward when i use it, and he's more untidy than me and throws sweet papers in the car, oh well its a hard life haha

Hi ya amanda333 Are you going to get your car back on the road or have you got rid of it? There is nothing worse than having to share your car with someone else for the very reasons you mentioned!! Thanks for your response

I drive a Mustang GT most of the time, it has one small sticker on the back, which also is not one that just anyone can get. You won't see this sticker on many cars if any at all. Plus I just know my car. I also have a Blazer, but there are no stickers or anything on it either. I do have a small Texas flag in the side window, which you don't see in PA very often. I never have been big on bumper stickers or stickers on other parts of the vehicle.

I never really cared to personalize my car until I got my current one a year and a half ago. As there are a lot of silver Ford Taurus's that are the same or similar year as mine on the road I didn't want to mistake someone else's for mine. So one of the first things I got for it was an antenna ball. I also added a license plate cover to the back of my car a short time later. That's about it for me customizing my car though. I'm just not into bumper stickers or fuzzy dice! And no, I never gave any of the cars I had names. It's a car, after all!

Mine was cherries. My husband hated driving around with it on the antenna! LOL They have since faded and I've taken them off of the car. The darn thing is just sitting anyway.

I own a Korean car - Hyundai Elantra. What i have personalised was the interior part of my car. For me, the interior part is the most important part because it allows me and the passenger enjoy the journey without any unconfortable situation. The seat is semi leathered (semi means those the area can be seen) so is kind of comfort. I also bought a car ionizer to ensure no smelly smell inside my car. =)

I have Taz (air freshener)hanging in the window and my license plate frame is personalized, otherwise I would never find mine! There seem to be tons of the same kind of car I have and in the same color - white - in this area! I will have to remember that when shopping for my next car!

Hi there quinnkl Yes it can certainly become a problem if you park your car in a multi-storey car park and you forget where you parked your car. It is hard enough to find at the best of times without it looking like someone elses car!! Thanks for your response

Hi ya PrincessoFJoy Spraying a car would become quite expensive I think but these stickers on mine were really cheap and you feel a sense of achievement when you have done it yourself! Thank you for your response

Your car looks great, I haven't done anything to mines, it need washing right now. I am not that creative enough to come up with something that will look good. If you want to get that off how will you do it? Will it be difficult? Happy MyLotting.

Thanks Chevee I am sure you could be creative if you put your mind to it you just need to have a look around and see what ideas you can come up with, browse a few websites that sell car decals and stickers. I must say that the stickers are well stuck on there and thought about how I would get them off if I needed to but the answer is, at the moment, I really don't know but I know there is a simple way. I would have to contact the company I bought mine from and they would be able to tell me. Thanks for your response

Wow, I have to say I like the daisies:) How cute! I have a silver Jeep Liberty which I see them everywhere. I do have a bumper sticker on tha back which my boyfriend got from where he worked and I have a dolphin necklace and a little UT helmet ornament hanging from my rearview mirror. The biggest thing that keeps me to know it is my jeep is I have a cute toy flower which is orange in pink on my glove box handle. It has wire in the stem so I can just wrap it around. I call it my signiture to the car. And I do not have a name for my car. All though I am greatly attached to it. It is in the shop right now getting repaired b/c I was hit by another driver in the side. I'm hoping it will still feel the same when I get it back. I havent gotten to drive it in over a month b/c a part has been back ordered and they have yet to call me to tell me its in. But hopefully I'll get it soon. Until then I'll drive the dodge charger the insurance rented me.

Hi there datarallek and welcome to myLot I am glad to hear you like the daisies. I bought like 36 of them so I could put as many or as little as I liked on. I used them all and have since bought some more so that I can do the roof when I get around to it or find someone taller to help me!!I don't know what my dad is going to say as he hasn't seen it yet and he bought me the car!! I am sorry to hear about your car and I do hope you get it back really soon. I would be gutted if someone hit my car! Thank you for your response

I had to chuckle my friend at your mention of lilac dice, weren't dice synonymous of people from Essex? You didn't have Wayne and Jayne on the window did you pmsl! I have a Nissan Almera and I haven't done anything to it to personalize it, it's got a stuffed animal on the back seat and it's metallic blue, not many Almera's around so no trouble getting in with someone else LOL! I haven't even called it a name, which is unsual as I named my first two cars! It's got a nice crocheted coloured blanket which my aunt made for me on the backseat bless her!
@Humbug25 (12551)

Hi wolfie34 I think you are getting confused with white stiletoes somehow!! . The dice came as part of a set! No I have no name on my windscreen and never would that's kinda tacky now isn't it but it does look like it might be coming back into fashion. Heaven help us all!! Thank you for the response

Hi ya thecrazyjogger Yeah there would be no point in customising your car now if you are going to be getting a new one. I have just recently added some lovely, lilac, fluffy car seat covers which is great because I have kids and when we go somewhere far they eat in the car so it is saving my car seats from getting dirty and messy! Thanks for your response
