Keeping a car clean will give a sense of pride

Everyone protects their car by getting a motor insurance quote before taking out insurance. Keeping the car as clean as possible will mean the investment is always looking good. Valeting a car properly can take a few hours using a wide range of chemicals and implements.
Before washing the engine make sure that any electrics are covered up, otherwise there is a risk of getting sensitive parts of the engine wet which will result in the engine not starting or electric failure. When washing the engine […]

Korean leg of Formula One championship will be vital

As the Formula One circus reassembles in Korea this weekend, the tightest race for the championship seen for many years gets closer to the finish line.
With just 31 points separating McLaren’s Jenson button from Red Bull’s leader Mark Webber the scene is set for a grandstand finish. This weekend could be particularly exciting as no-one is sure how the track will drive as it is brand new.

Jaguar success greeted by car makers universally

It comes as no surprise that a Jaguar car is the star of the opening week of the Paris Motor Show but the vehicle is far from what one would normally expect from the manufacturer.
The Jaguar C-X75 Supercar has undoubtedly been the big hit of week one in Paris. With a top speed of over 330 kph and acceleration of 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds the C-X75 can never been viewed as tardy. It may come as some surprise then that the model is powered […]

Transport Secretary keen to get motorists on the train

The great majority of UK motorists use their vehicles for two things in particular, work and convenience. Not many of us see much point in getting a motor insurance quote, buying a car and then leaving it in the drive when it comes to getting about.
It is so much easier to start your working day from the family garage or driveway in the comfort of a warm car rather than having to dress up in several layers of clothing to combat the harsh chills associated […]
