How much does it cost to make your car bulletproof?

What will it cost to make your car bulletproof? There were some drive-by shootings on the route I take to work, and I'm worried. If it's affordable, I think bulletproofing my car would help me feel safer on the drive.

Answer
I’m sorry you feel so worried, and I hope you find a way to feel safer when you drive to work! Unfortunately, bulletproofing a car will usually cost between $16,000 and $50,000 but can sometimes cost even more.
The price is largely based on the size of your car and the areas you’d like bulletproofed. Remember, each panel of bulletproof material costs between $500 and $1,500—and that’s not even counting labor. Bulletproofing more complex areas like the engine or gas tank can cost even more!
When you add bulletproof material to your car, you’re also adding extra weight. That means your car will need an engine capable of towing extra weight. If it isn’t, then you’ll likely need to pay for an engine upgrade as well.
If you’re concerned about your safety, you can still take protective steps like investing in MedPay and personal injury protection coverage. While incidents are sometimes unavoidable, good insurance can help keep you covered in worst-case scenarios.
