GREAT JOB AUTOGLYM

Royal Warranted car-care expert Autoglym has launched a truly effective Hand Sanitiser, presented in a handy 100ml bottle that’s perfect for your car, office or home. Many motorists already know that outside of their vehicle, it’s incredibly easy to pick up germs and bacteria – and then transfer these to the many exterior and interior touch points all around the car. Once inside the vehicle, a few seconds spent with this hand rub, soon eradicates the problem, meaning anything you then touch will then be with clean, sterilised hands.

A small win, but an important one as we all learn to More >

DOESN’T JUST SMELL LIKE AN ORANGE GROVE, IT WORKS, TOO!

I really am impressed by Auto Finesse’s Citrus Power, which has a beautiful orange pong and gets rid of bugs, crud, grime and general detritus that can stick to your car’s bodywork.

It’s also an effective all-purpose cleaner as it lifts dirt and kind of encapsulates it making it easy to remove with a pressure washer. You really don’t need to scrub the surface.

Apart from the heavenly scent, what I like about it is that it doesn’t remove existing wax or sealant as more aggressive APCs do.

A 500ml spray bottle costs £7.96 with a 1-litre offering even better value at just More >

ADVANTAGE THROUGH QUALITY AND A COATING OF QUARTZ!

Here’s another great product from the nice people at Tenzi.

I’ve always been a bit scared of ceramic coatings. I am happy to use spray-on versions, but the coatings, they are a different kettle of fish. Get some of them wrong and it’ll be like trying to remove concrete from your car’s body.

So, when Wojtek from Tenzi UK suggested I might like to try their new Quartz Coat Paint Protection kit, I was both curious and a bit apprehensive at the same time. However, I followed the instructions and ended up with a gleaming car.

SHIELD YOUR SHINE WITH ROCKET BUTTER

Here’s a cost-effective and pretty good quick detailer from Rocket Butter.

It’s called Shine Shield and it’s described as a ‘little and often’ product that is easy to apply and remove and leaves a deep shine. It’s also great for shifting bird doodoo and a bit of road grime that is threatening to spoil the look of your freshly polished pride and joy.

I used it on my RPX the other day and it left a properly just waxed finish and works extremely well on painted fibreglass, which as we all know can react differently to painted metal surfaces.

It is also effective More >

PERFECT FOR KITCAR OWNERS, THIS ONE

Halfords has announced a new weapon in the ongoing battle against high-tech car crime, the Fingerprint T-Bar Steering Lock, the world’s first steering lock to be activated by just a fingerprint. By placing a digit over the sensor, it unlocks in moments, meaning there will no longer be any keys to lose or locks to pick.

Pavan Sondhi, Halfords’ car crime expert said: “While the humble steering lock remains an extremely effective and visual deterrent to car thieves, we couldn’t help but give the thumbs up to upgrading this classic security device. By adding biometric technology to More >

Well-known Lotus tuning specialist and officially appointed Lotus service centre, Hangar 111 of Waldringfield, Suffolk recently took over legendary engine company, Mendlesham-based, Scholar Engines from Alan Wardropper.
