FEELS NICE IN THE HAND

It’s often the little things that make the biggest difference to how a car drives, and rarely has this rung truer than when discussing MX5Parts’ range of aftermarket interior parts, and in particular their new leather clad gearknobs.

Based upon the firm’s already highly successful chrome gearknobs, the leather clad versions can be had in either red, black, light or dark tan, and will fit any MX5 with a manual transmission up to the Mk3.75 (1989-2015). Weighing in at a chuck-able 170gm, the leather gearknobs promise an improved gear shift experience, and therefore an improved driving experience overall.

Fitment is both simple More >

SPECIALIST GLASS CLEANER

With so many smokers now switching to what I believe is called ‘vaping’ or e-cigarettes, the vapour from these devices can leave a residue on your car’s glass that regular glass cleaners and polishes can find hard to deal with.

A 500ml spray bottle costs £8.99 and is available now via www.powermaxed.com ENDS.

GENUINE FORGE HOSES

A perennial best-seller, Forge Motorsport has released details of its race-quality boost hose kit that will fit all Turbo variants of the iconic Subaru ‘’Bug Eye’ turbo. Engineered to Forge’s high-quality standards, the kit allows for a quick and easy fitment to the OEM fittings.

Ideal on a standard car, but absolutely essential on a tuned, track or modified example. Allied to this, their woven fabric reinforcement means More >

CUSTOM MONOTUBES

Leading performance suspension specialist, Gaz Shocks, has now extended its one-off custom-build service to include monotube dampers. The coil-over pictured was for a spaceframed racecar, but that is just an example of what can be produced and the final product is down to your requirements.

BRING YOUR XK INTO THE 21st CENTURY

For years Jaguar specialists have understood that the stock ignition system on the XK 3.8/4.2 E-type engines leaves much to be desired in terms of reliability and its lack of tuning potential. This has led many owners to consider fitting a fully-mappable, wasted spark ignition system but, while the ECU and harness is straightforward enough to source, finding the hardware has been problematic and costly as often the only solution has been to custom make the parts.

Webcon is therefore delighted to launch an ignition system hardware kit for the Jaguar XK engine, comprising everything you need including trigger disc kit, More >
