Any websites to see customized versions of your own car?

Does anyone know of any websites where you can pick your specific car model and then make changes to it?? (ie. car color, different headlights, exhaust)

so you can see what your car would look like before you have to actually go buy everything.

Depends on what kind of car you are looking at I suppose. I know some of the car's websites will allow you to "Build your own" which in turn allows you to change color, accessories, etc and will show you what it looks like. I would just look at whatever manufacturer's website you were interested in, click on the car, and see if it will allow you to customize.

Hello fongoddess515, That's tough they don't have that feature now. I you are good with PhotoShop you can change the colour shape and add various accessories like alloys etc.
Before I modded my Z3 I messed around with PhotoShop, I even made a dummy stubby aerial from plasticine to make sure it would look good

Thanks, although my wife doesn't like it. She went apeshit once when she found my cache of magazines

There is one really good website that can customize the look on any model car, but it's only for wheels. The site is: http://www.tirerack.com

I don't know of any website that can do the stuff you're looking for. Sorry.
