Feature Your Car in Magazines

Having your car featured in car magazines can have many advantages.

First, it will give a good documentation of your modified car for your effort and secondly, it
will provide you with a good exposure for your car if you want to sell it.

However, since there are millions of automobiles out there on the road, how can one attract the attention of Car Magazine to feature your modified car?

Here are some tips and guides on How to Feature your car in magazines by a BMW car owner whose BMW M3 Tuning was featured in 3 Car Magazines.

1. BE the FIRST (NEWS SELLS)

Car magazines works like newspapers, they need news to sell their magazines, hence to make the magazines notice you, you need give them a reason (some kind of news) for them. If your car has the first new modifications from a car tuner, that would be ideal as it will create news and attention of readers.

2. BE DIFFERENT: CREATE a whole unique car:

Your best bet is to start off with your mind to create something special but still to your own liking, of course according to your taste. You don’t want to create an unusual car only to hate it after the modifications. People want to see something unique. “Uniqueness” always catches attention. But remember to do it tastefully otherwise it will only attract negative attention. Be creative, you don’t have to limit yourself to parts from one car tuner, you can mix and match with products of other car tuners or even from other makes of car tuners.

3. CUSTOMISED MODIFICATIONS: ATTENTION TO DETAIL:

Custom modifications attracts attention, it shows creativity and uniqueness too, that nobody else’s has. Car Magazines want to show customized parts to the world and readers will want to buy the magazines to read and to check out the new parts.

4. BRIGHT COLOURS:

Car magazines love BRIGHT colored car, so if your modified car is of that, you have a point ahead of other car owners. You may have noticed this in all other cover magazines too. So if you plan to repaint your car, catch attention and make it to the cover, choose bright! (important note: choose a bright color that you can live with!)

5. CONTACT THE CAR MAGAZINES:

Well you need give a hint to the magazines that you have a unique car to feature. Find a suitable magazine that suit your car theme or make and contact them. If your car is modified by a tuner, you may want to ask your tuner to call the Car Magazines as they should have contacts to the Magazine publishers.

If you have a tastefully tuned unique car, many car magazines are more than willing to feature it in their magazines. Just think of it this way, Car magazines need cars to feature in their magazines in every issue! (At least four feature cars in each issue). How are they going to find these cars? If you have a unique car and feel like getting it featured, get some good photos now and send them. You just have to let Car publishers know of the existence of your special Car. Good Luck!
