The world of aftermarket tuning is fast-paced and ceaselessly evolving, so much so that it can be all too easy to overlook both the charms and the benefits of old-school thinking, albeit when paired with cutting-edge technology.

FESTIVE FUN AT SEVENS AND CLASSICS

 

PICTURES TO COME

I was down at Sevens and Classics’ latest open day during the festive period. Held, as usual at their showroom located within the Brands Hatch complex and this one was arguably the busiest yet.

The company was set-up by former Caterham Cars men, Andy Noble and Tim Ward in 2012 and understandably they have a bit of a specialisation with all things Lotus and Caterham Seven and always have specially selected finest examples of the breed available.

The company also deals in classic British sportscars, Classic Minis and generally interesting cars as well as desirable motorbikes.

INTELLIGENT, AFFORDABLE, HANDY HEATING ON DEMAND

Traditional heating works by setting the temperature using a thermostat to maintain a room’s temperature, regardless of whether space is used constantly or only occasionally. A garage, spare bedroom, children’s playroom, conservatory, office workspace or shed may have an infrequent use, but in the colder weather still, need warming up.  

The new MeacoHeat Motion heaters with their unique motion detection sensors can be used as stand-alone heaters for these spaces, as they will only switch on when a person walks into the room. When they leave the room they will switch off, saving money on heating bills as well as More >

WELL WORTH DITCHING THE HYDRAGAS FOR THIS KIT

Here’s a very interesting new arrival that will appeal to MGF owners or those running some kitcars or body conversions based on same.

Well-known MGF parts specialist and designer, Mike Satur, has recently announced a world first coil-over suspension kit that replaces the often tired Hydragas set-up. Although it was a brilliant design for its time it has always been a compromise due to budget restraints and internal politics at MG Rover.

By the time the MGF came along in 1995, MG Rover needed a cheap solution and fast. So, they pressed the old Hydragas system from the Metro into two-seat sportscar use.
