Tips & Advice
How much does it cost to customize a car?
Every modification to a car has a different price tag. You have to factor in the cost of the parts and the labor involved if you are hiring someone to do it for you. Tires and wheels can be done quickly within just about any budget, but things like internal engine modifications can add up quickly. Elaborate paint jobs or custom body work can get very expensive, as well. You can get a budget paint job for a couple-hundred bucks, or spend $25,000 on an elaborate show-quality job.
What is performance tuning?
Performance tuning is making adjustments, performing tune ups, or anything done to the car in an effort to increase performance. Usually it is associated with engine performance to increase output for more speed. But performance tuning can also be done to exhaust systems and suspension parts and, in the case of racing cars, spoilers, which do not have any performance advantage until you reach very high speeds.
Is car customization the same as modification?
Modifications and customization are basically the same. Modifications made to your car create a customized car. If you modify your engine, interior, paint, or body, it is now customized.
Is car customization legal?
Yes. Customizing a car is completely legal--as long as the vehicle still adheres to the law. There are limitations, such as engine output, tire size, window tinting, body shaping, lights, and exhaust systems (both in carbon emissions and noise). For instance, you cannot drive a car around town that has been stripped and converted into a race car--it won’t have mufflers, turn signals, lights, and many basic components that make a car street legal. Know the laws and limitations before going all-in on customizing your rig.
What is a customized car?
A customized car is one that has had significant changes done to update t style or performance. Customizing can range from making an engine faster or perform better, to elaborate pain jobs. Lowering or raising a vehicle’s suspension (think lifted trucks or low-rider cars) is customizing, and even interiors can be customized.

You might be asked about current and past medical conditions, as well asa family health history.
Is a referral required to see a psychiatrist?
A referral is an authorization from your doctor saying that a certain type of treatment is medically necessary, and it's usually required if you want your insurance company to cover the costs associated with a visit to a psychiatrist. If you don't have insurance, a referral is not required to schedule a psychiatrist visit.
Do psychiatrists collaborate with psychologists?
Psychiatrists and psychologists sometimes collaborate, and this typically takes place when working with patients who have serious mental health problems. In cases like this, a psychologist will treat the patient from a behavioral perspective. A psychiatrist will complement this treatment with care that handles issues concerning biology, neurology, and the prescription of drugs.
Do psychiatrists specialize in certain conditions?
Many psychiatrists specialize in treating certain conditions. Some psychiatrists focus on substance abuse therapy, and this is the treatment of addiction to substances like alcohol, narcotics, and tobacco. Others specialize in biological psychiatry, which is the treatment of brain chemistry disorders like depression and schizophrenia. Psychiatrists might also specialize in treating elderly patients or children and adolescents.
