Top 5 Motoring Apps

Published on 12/06/2018

Owning a vehicle in the ‘digital age’ is so much easier; some of them can drive themselves, find a parking spot, talk to other vehicles … the technology is incredible, and it’s only really just getting started. But what about the more mundane side of owning a car? Forgotten when your VED is due? Want to buy another car? Or calculate just what MPG you’re really getting? Yes, all of that can be done with a swipe of a finger, a click of a button and the odd pinch & zoom gesture. It really is that easy. These are our…

Audi Drivers – The Most Likely to Speed

Published on 07/06/2018

A recent study carried out by Smartdriverclub found that owners of Audi cars are the most likely to speed – spending 8.7% of their total time behind the wheel above the speed limit. In fact, 3 from the top five positions were filled by German brands – BMW 8.3% & Mercedes-Benz 7.7%.  As to how much validity this study has remains to be seen though – it isn’t made clear just how they got the information, but we believe it’s through admission, which is notoriously unreliable, and added to that, the study covered just 6,000 motorists, aged 17 – 80. …

The Monaco of the Midlands

Published on 06/06/2018

Forget Goodwood, Monte Carlo or Le Mans, if you want to get up close and personal with all manner of racing cars, bikes, trucks and buses, there’s only one place to be – Coventry in the West Midlands. Yes, you read that right. Coventry has a long association with the automotive industry, perhaps best known for its Jaguar connection, but it goes much deeper than that; Alvis, Armstrong-Siddeley, Coventry Climax, Triumph Motor Company, Francis-Barnett … and the list goes on … all have a connection with Coventry, in fact locally, it’s known as ‘Motor City’. Added to that is the…

Private Number Plates as an Investment

Published on 01/06/2018

We’ve noticed a recent trend toward buying private number plates purely as an investment, and you’d have to say … it makes sense. Of course, we need to say that investments can go down as well as up, but on the whole, there’s a high chance of making money, and let’s be honest, with the Bank of England interest rates through the floor, you won’t be making any serious returns on your money there. Before heading out and just buying any old cherished plate, you should understand what makes a private plate valuable.  Checkout our personlised number plate guide for a general…

Car Collections to Envy

Published on 16/05/2018

Petrolheads … the only group of people that will jump in their car and drive for hours, just to go and look at someone else’s car, or in this case, car collections.  Of course we’d all love to have our own little collection, a little two-seater soft top for good weather, something family-ish (think big Merc AMG estate type of thing), something properly sporty, a shopper … even being sensible, we could come up with a list of around a dozen cars that we could justifiablyown.  For some people, that wish for a few cars has become a reality, and then…

Revealed - The Top 10 Most Expensive Places To Fill Up

Published on 12/05/2018

As motorists, we’re resigned to the fact that whatever fossil fuel our vehicle runs on, there’s no end to the increase in pump price. Price creep happens to everything we buy, but we tend to notice it more when it’s at the pump, maybe that’s because we visit them often, or perhaps it’s just because of the whole taxation issue. Taxing the Tax Fuel duty is set at a flat rate for petrol and diesel, currently it sits at £0.5795 per litre, and of course, we then need to add VAT. This means that for every £100 at the pump,…

The Rise of the Dash Cam

Published on 10/05/2018

Drivers have been using cameras mounted to their dash for years, but usually as an aid to showing their friends just how spectacular their driving is, it was only really as technology allowed for the miniaturisation of cameras that dash cams found a true home.  It’s estimated that over 1,000,000 drivers in the UK now use a dash cam regularly, and with them being available from £30 upwards, you’d have to say that it makes a great deal of sense.  Crash for Cash Most of you will have seen the videos of scammers trying to cause an accident deliberately –…

Published on 09/03/2018

Personalised Number Plates – The Ultimate Guide

Published on 06/03/2018

There is no shortage of ways that any car owner can personalise their vehicle. Some choose to apply a range of stickers to their windows or bumper for a cost-effective way to stand out from the crowd. Others may take their drive to a garage or other kind of bodywork specialist, adding a range of designs or markings that will make their car uniquely theirs. There's even the option of adding soft toys to a window via suction cups, or applying a small army of figurines to a dashboard. Perhaps the most impactful way of standing out from the assembled…
