RING FOR LIGHT

A torch is a glove box essential, especially for a break down at night. Having that source of light will provide security and peace of mind when stranded on the side of the motorway.

However, batteries have a shelf life and are affected by cold. Having a torch in the glove box is a great precaution, but only when it works.

To ensure you not only have a light source in the car, but one that works when you need it, Ring has launched the Rechargeable Car Torch.

The torch simply plugs it into the car’s 12v socket. This provides the power to More >

I’M NOT DOING THE MORECOMBE & WISE JOKE AGAIN…

Want to add heat and sound proofing to your car without adding a massive extra weight? Boom Mat’s Under Carpet Lite (UC Lite) could be just what you’re looking for.

It’s a lightweight thermal insulation and a superior sound absorber for hard-to-cover areas like door liners, rear parcel shelves, headliners and more.

Under Carpet Lite is manufactured with four layers of high tech composite material – three More >

THREE IS THE MAGIC NUMBER!

The designers at Calibre Wheels are not exactly a timid bunch. Never ones to shy away from cutting-edge design, the latest design from the leading wheel house takes a look backward for its inspiration and a look forward for its finish and styling. Stand by your beds, the THREE SPOKE is making a comeback as the look for 2013, apparently.

Anyone who remembers the trend the first time round can recall just how good it can look when executed to perfection (think Brabus and Saab as two great exponents of the craft.) The CR-III balances perfectly proportioned spokes with superb pseudo More >

EASY STEERING

Back in the days before power steering, large diameter steering wheels were necessary to give the driver enough leverage to manoeuvre at slow speeds.

With the advent of EZ Electric Power Steering a kit or classic car can be steered at walking pace without effort – and that means that the diameter of the steering wheel can therefore be reduced to provide a better driving position, easier entry and exit, more legroom and more direct steering.

However, rather than fit an extremely small steering wheel that could look out of place in a classic car or replica and also perhaps block the More >

BRAKING UP

Put simply, your brakes are your life, so it pays to choose reputable components when uprating a brake system. With a long history and numerous achievements it all forms of motorsport there cannot be many names more reputable than Cosworth.

The company has now produced their own brand of stainless steel brake lines.

They are finished in a protective black PVC cover and the end fittings are swaged together for durability and are protected with a heat-shrunk rubber cover, bearing the Cosworth logo as proof of pedigree. As you would expect of Cosworth all lines are thoroughly pressure-tested before released from the More >
