By admin / December 5, 2016

One of the things that sets Porsche apart from other vehicles is that it balances it status as an ultimate sports car, without sacrificing practicality for everyday use. It has all of the features you would want or expect from a luxury vehicle, so that you can keep the eyes on your way ahead. One such feature is the ability to sync your phone with the car’s entertainment and navigation system.

The Waxing Basics

By admin / November 19, 2016

The globally-renowned British luxury sports car maker is marking its first 100 years with a series of international events highlighting the unique success of Aston Martin worldwide. The Pebble Beach Concours dElegance® always marks a pinnacle in the automotive calendar but will take on added significance for the brand in this special year.

 

Aston Martin Chief Executive and Concours Judge, Dr Ulrich Bez said: The Pebble BeachConcours dElegance® symbolises the very soul of the automobile it is a showcase to the world and we are very pleased to be part of this great weekend.

 

This special event is not only a celebration of what has been, but also of what may come in the future and it is this spirit that makes it the perfect location to continue to celebrate our first 100 years while also looking forward to an exciting and vibrant future.

 

The historic concours has been held on the scenic Northern California coast since 1950 and has grown to attract entries from some of the finest and most rare automobiles in the world establishing itself as one of the most prestigious distinctions for automobile collectors.

Car Care Magazine October Launch Issue Sneak Preview

The concours marks the culmination of Pebble Beach Automotive Week which provided a fitting location for the North American debut of Aston Martins new super GT; the 2014 Vanquish last year. In keeping with the significant nature of the 2013 event, further exciting unveils are planned.

 

Further details on the relevant classes involving Aston Martin and the companys plans for Pebble Beach Automotive Week will follow in the coming weeks. Pebble Beach® and Pebble BeachConcours dElegance® are trademarks and service marks of Pebble Beach Company. Usedbypermission.

 

Aston Martin: 1913 to 2013

On 15 January 1913, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford founded a new automotive venture.

They called their company Bamford & Martin which later became Aston Martin, acknowledging Lionel Martins success at the Aston Clinton Hillclimb in Buckinghamshire, where he hadsuccessfully raced their very first cars.

 

Bamford and Martin began their business in Chelseas Henniker Mews in London, becoming

well known as providers of sporting machines to enthusiastic racers and discerning enthusiasts.

 

In the century that followed Aston Martin has come to represent many things, from sporting

prowess through to technical innovation, beautiful design, fine craftsmanship and superiorperformance.

 

In Aston Martins first 90 years the company built fewer than 15,000 cars. The open bodied

two-seater sports specials of the pre-war years gave way to the David Brown era of the 1950s and beyond which saw the introduction of the legendary DB2/4, DB4, DB5, DB6 and DBS, before the V8 Vantage and Virage led Aston Martin to the DB7, original Vanquish and on into the modern era.

 

A second celebration sees Aston Martin mark its first decade at Gaydon, in Warwickshire, moving in to its purpose-built premises on 3 January 2003. Since that date Aston Martin, overseen by CEO Dr Ulrich Bez, has produced 45,000 cars to huge critical and commercial acclaim.

 

The original DB9 and Vantage were joined by the Rapide, DBS, Virage and now the timeless

new DB9 and ultimate GT, the Vanquish Aston Martins latest flagship sports car.

 

Aston Martin is, too, no longer focused on the domestic market but an international player,

exporting 75% of its annual production around the world to 146 dealerships in 41 countries.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars welcomed Nick Herbert, MP for Arundel & South Downs, to the company’s head office and manufacturing plant on the concluding day of National Apprenticeship Week. Mr Herbert toured the facility and met apprentices working in wood, leather, paint, assembly, test and finish and maintenance.

Welcome To Luxury Wax

Nick Herbert said, “Rolls-Royce is a modern manufacturing success story, exporting cars worldwide and creating hundreds of jobs for local people. I was fascinated to visit their factory and it was particularly good to meet many of the companys apprentices during National Apprenticeship Week. The enthusiasm of the apprentices about the trade-craft which they were learning was clear.  It is great that Rolls-Royce has given such an important opportunity to local young people.” He continued, It was also fantastic to see the new Rolls-Royce Wraith before this sensational new model appears on the streets.

 

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars said, “We were delighted to welcome Nick Herbert to the Home of Rolls-Royce. We are very proud of our successful apprenticeship programme and are fully committed to the development and training of young people in the UK manufacturing industry.”

 

The company’s Apprenticeship Programme was successfully launched in 2006 and provides people aged 16-24 with the opportunity to train with the Goodwood-based manufacturer of the world’s best-selling ultra-luxury cars. The apprenticeships last for up to four years and combine on-the-job training with studying for nationally recognised qualifications. The programme has been designed in conjunction with the Learning Skills Council (LSC) and several local colleges.

 

In addition to the Apprenticeship Programme, more than 60 young men and women were employed with the company in 2012 on industrial placements ranging in duration from six to 12 months; further positions are likely to be available this year. The company also runs a successful graduate programme, with new positions made available each year.

Motor Codes, the OFT-approved garage scheme operator, has today announced the shortlist of businesses in the running for its Garage of the Year title.  Thousands have voted in the annual initiative that helps uncertain motorists know where to turn for top-class customer service.  Over 7,000 garages from across the UK, all subscribers to Motor Codes’ government-backed code of practice, put themselves up for public scrutiny.

PSA PEUGEOT-CITROEN AND OPEL, A NEW ALLIANCE

By admin / June 28, 2016

Motor Codes runs the contest to highlight garages that provide a consistently reliable, trustworthy service to motorists, with results driven directly by customer feedback.

 

The competition, reflecting the diverse nature of the car servicing industry, is split into two categories, with awards for the franchised main dealer of the year and independent garage of the year.  The results from the opening round can be seen online at www.motorcodes.co.uk, where voting now commences for customers of the garages on that shortlist, before the regional winners are announced at the end of March.

 

Overall champions, the UK’s franchised and independent garages of the year will be selected from this list of regional winners by a panel of judges chaired by Motor Codes managing director, Chris Mason and including television presenter and car expert, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Auto Express editor, Steve Fowler and Trading Standards lead motoring officer, Tim Milsom.

 

The membership of the judging panel reflects a number of positive moves for Motor Codes and consumers this year, with Trading Standards taking over administration of the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme – the government body that oversees the work of approved schemes such as Motor Codes.  Also, Motor Codes has partnered with Auto Express, the UK’s biggest selling motor magazine.  A move that Motor Codes managing director, Chris Mason, sees as an important one for motorists:

 

“Garage of the Year reflects the overall principles of Motor Codes – that you help people choose a reputable business by opening up your whole network to completely frank and honest public reviews.  Pairing with Auto Express Driver Power, which gathers the opinion of tens of thousands of car owners every year, signals our intention to make sure that the most accurate information is out there for all to see, so that you don’t have to feel anxious about choosing a garage.”

 

Voting to find the best of the best, for customers of those garages on the shortlist announced today, is open online at motorcodes.co.uk until noon on Sunday 24 March.

Motor Codes operates OFT-approved codes of practice that raise and maintain standards in the service and repair and new car sectors.

 

The New Car Code covers over 99% of all new cars sold in the UK and regulates the advertising, sale, warranty, replacement parts availability and complaint handling processes for new cars.

 

The Service and Repair Code helps motorists to identify responsible garages, offers a structured complaints procedure and promotes good customer service. Over 7,000 garages in the UK subscribe to the code and millions of motorists benefit from its protection and standards, in addition to the free advice line and dispute resolution service.

 

The code commits subscribing garages to:

 

honest and fair service

open and transparent pricing

completing work as agreed

invoices that match quoted prices

competent and conscientious staff

a straightforward and swift complaints procedure

 

It offers motorists:

 

a free motoring advice line (0800 692 0825)

an online Garage Finder tool, complete with real-time ratings, to locate the nearest reputable garage

free conciliation and low cost, legally binding arbitration

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and while the (rumoured) fusion between PSA Peugeot-Citroen and Opel may not be seen as a ‘desperate’ measure, it is certainly no stretch to say that it was dictated by the times. Peugeot have been hit hard by the crisis, harder than most other car manufacturers in Europe, including their conational Renault. One of the reasons for this is no doubt related to the insistence by the Peugeot family on keeping much of their production local. An extraordinary 45% of their global production takes place in France, compared to Renault’s 27%. While this reveals a commendable spirit, it is also something that is now taking its toll, as the same company that once symbolised the French industrial spirit now loses an incredible 200 million euros per month.

 

 

 

Hence the decision to join forces with the German company Opel, who are in a slightly more comfortable position (though they too have been troubled, in particular as they were hit by the increased competition face to some of the better sedans, SUVs and 44 vehicles released in the German market as of late). Mind you, this is not something that has officially been announced yet – it has merely been suggested by the site of the newspaper La Tribune. Still, if we consider that La Tribune had already in the past announced an alliance between Peugeot and another automobile company (this being the American GM, who now control 7% of the French group), and the scoop turned out to be correct, we have a good precedent to take them seriously this time as well.

The 9 Best Things About Car Care

The object of the fusion, assuming that it will indeed take place, has nothing to do with designs or new models. Though the idea of a new vehicle produced by the two companies together, like the sedans produced by Renault together with Nissan or the powerful hatchback developed by Skoda since they became part of Volkswagen, would be an appealing new fantasy, it probably won’t amount to anything more than that. It will take a long time before the two manufacturing houses are in a position to work together on an engine, especially Peugeot.

 

Rather, the object of the alliance would be to create a financial synergy. Presently, the overall production capabilities of most European manufacturers are in excess of the actual demand. The obvious response would be to lower production – but this is a process that is usually hindered, rather than helped, by the presence of strong competition. Hence Peugeot’s and Opel’s decision to work together towards finding solutions that may help both.

 

 

 

In the meantime, the alliance would – at the very least – bring some much-needed cash into the pockets of Peugeot. The French group is larger and their assets are worth more than the German one, so the fusion would come together with a financial supplement offered by Opel. It is not enough to fill the chasms left by the last few years of crisis, but at the very least it buys some breathing time.Theres a new name in high quality car care products, when on October 21st 2012, Luxury Wax launch their range of premium quality car care offerings.
