ULTIMATE ULTIMA

I’ve been speaking to a couple of readers who have recently placed orders for the latest model from Ultima Sports, the RS Coupe, this week. Very excited boys, both of them!

Billed by the factory as the culmination of all the things that they’ve learnt over the years – the Marlows have been custodians of the marque since 1992 – and as such features the very best of everything it’s possible for them to produce.

The RS model uses either GM LS (LS3, LS7 or LSA) series or the recommended current LT generation, which feature LT1 (480bhp), LT4 (650bhp) or the brand More >

SEALED WITH A BOTTLE OF SEALANT!

If you enjoy a proper bit of car detailing then this new product from car care giant, Meguiar’s may well be of interest. M27 Pro Hybrid Ceramic Sealant is out now.

I think the poor old sealant often gets overlooked. We all use snowfoam, car shampoo, polish and wax, in my view the sealant stage is one that shouldn’t be overlooked, and I like to apply it to my cars at least twice a year.

It should be used after you’ve cleaned and decontaminated your car’s body and it acts as a great base layer for a coat or two of wax. More >

GAMECHANGING ABILITY

Users of dehumidifiers often worry about how their machine will be emptied when the water tank is full and there is no one around to empty it. This is particularly the case when used in a garage, basement or second home, which can be left vacant or unattended for long periods.

Leading British air treatment specialist Meaco has solved this problem with a unique pump accessory designed to work with its new 20L and 25L MeacoDry Arete® dehumidifiers.

The pump is a gamechanger for the user, requiring no expertise to set up and install, and removing the worry and bother of having to empty the water More >

WASABI – PHEW, IT’S HOT!

I’ve been very impressed by the products of Wasabi Car Care (brilliant name!), part of the highly regarded Marells Detailing, a company based locally to TKC Towers in Buxted, East Sussex.

A petit and bijou range of products (about eight in all) includes their excellent Last Touch quick detailer, which has a lovely smell of berries. A clear liquid, it applies well (nice triggers help) and requires a very basic amount of spreading out one panel at a time and then it’s very simple to buff to a high shine.

A true ‘easy-on-easy-off’ detailer if ever there was one. The best part More >
