Founded in 1996 by Los Angeles car wash entrepreneur, Tuncer Goren 3D Car Care has risen to become one of the USA’s leading car care brands and they launched in the UK in 2022.

We recently had the chance to sample their Bead It Up product, which is essentially a gloss-enhancing quick detailer.

It’s one of the nicest products of its type that I’ve ever used and is a true easy-on-easy-off potion that sprays on and wipes off. It leaves behind a great level of shine and also manages to give your paintwork a very smooth, soft feel.

Mini Spares is now offering these high-quality Japanese sealed balljoints for classic Minis.

The joints were developed and tested over a period of three years. The original concept was to develop a high-quality product similar to those used on modern vehicles.

Unlike the original Mini design, these maintenance-free balljoints do not require periodic adjustments of the shim and are pre-loaded for easy installation. As no shimming is required, the maintenance-free ball joints can be fitted in a relatively short period of time.

They mount as a direct replacement in the same way as the original and can be fitted to the top and More >

He borrowed £20 (now worth about £1000, allowing for inflation) from his mum to open his first dealership in 1934, on Brighton Road, Surbiton.

He drove a fire engine during WW2 and post-war he opened his first official Guy Salmon dealership in Thames Ditton in 1946. The site had made gun turrets for Bomber Command, although Salmon, aided by his brother Micky, sold Rolls-Royces More >
