• Hands free kits for your car

    Driving whilst holding a mobile phone is illegal, but many of us (especially reps out on the road) need to use a phone from time to time to make or receive a call. The only way to do this legally is to use a hands free kit. Previously hands free kits were quite expensive, but recently there has been a massive influx in to the market of cheaper hands free kits. You no longer have to worry about taking your car to a specialist audio centre to have one installed. There is a wide range of different sorts of hands free kits that work in different ways.

  • Looking after your leather interior

    A leather interior is a desirable feature on a car as it adds a bit of luxury to every journey. However, because leather is a natural material, it requires a bit more care than regular car upholstery as the oils in the leather can dry overtime, potentially leading to cracking. There are plenty of good leather care products on the market and the care regime is quite straight forward. First off, use a soft brush and vacuum to remove dirt from the seams and crevices of the seats, being careful not to scratch the leather. Apply a leather cleaner to the seats and clean thoroughly and wipe of the residue with a clean, damp cloth. Dry the seats with a microfibre cloth, paying attention to the seams. When the seats are dry, applying a leather care balm will replenish any…
  • Sun blinds for your car

    The sun can become quite fierce in the summer months and even as winter is approaching or even in the thick of it, the sun streaming directly through a window when driving can not only be annoying but also very dangerous.

  • Replacing your window screen wiper blades

    If you are driving in the rain and put your window screen wipers on you may find that it does not clear the rain off and just ends up smearing it across the screen. This can not only be annoying but also very dangerous. Many car accidents happen each year from inadequate wiper blades, and this can be easily avoided.

When your car goes in for an Mot, the wiper blades will be checked, but you should not necessarily leave it until then to find out if they need replacing. Most are very easy to fit, but if you do struggle then you could always take it to a garage to ask them to swap them over for you. Don’t let your car fall in…
  • Must Have In-car Items

Jump Leads always come in handy, and if you’re battery has decided to be a pain, then it usually doesn’t take a long time to get the car going with some jump leads and another vehicle.
