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.

First shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November last year, the stunning XFR-S will be joined at Goodwood Festival of Speed press day by heroes of Jaguar’s sporting past.  A 1962 Jaguar Mk. II prepared by Jaguar Heritage Racing, and a 1954 ‘short nose’ Jaguar D-Type – chassis No.1 and itself a development prototype – will be displayed by the Jaguar Heritage Trust in front of Goodwood House.

 

Car Wash Reviews

By admin / September 21, 2015

Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Global Brand Director said: “I’m delighted that Jaguar is able to present the XFR-S in action for the first time in the UK, and that a Jaguar motorsport hero will be behind the wheel. The crowd at Goodwood will have a unique opportunity to see and hear the ultimate expression of seductive Jaguar design and sporting performance in the XFR-S well in advance of first deliveries to customers this summer.”

 

Jaguar XFR-S performance highlights

 

The new XFR-S is capable of sprinting from zero to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds), and up to the electronically limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h). The XFR-S builds on the performance of the acclaimed XFR to create an even more focused product.   With an increase of 40PS and 55Nm over the XFR in power and torque from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the XFR-S produces an astonishing to 550PS and 680Nm, yet with with no impact on fuel consumption or CO2 emissions.

Automotive technologies could cut motorists’ fuel bills by up to 20 percent – around £250 per year

More than a third of new cars in 2015 could emit below 100g/km CO2*

Bosch technology could help cut UK CO2 output by 800,000 tonnes

 

It is a fact that buying a new car can reduce running costs by improving fuel economy. Bosch remains at the forefront of many technologies, such as common-rail diesel and gasoline systems, as well as Start/Stop systems, which help to reduce vehicle emissions and increase fuel efficiency without sacrificing overall performance.

 

Following the launch of the 2013 SMMT New Car CO2 report, by 2015 the average fuel economy of a new car could be up to up to 20 percent better, cutting motorists’ fuel bills thanks to advances in powertrain technologies.  Bosch delivers the innovations to make this a reality.

 

These technologies include more efficient fuel injection systems, downsized engines, turbocharging and systems that temporarily switch the engine off when the vehicle is stationary.

 

Motorists with new vehicles already profit substantially from these technologies, enjoying reduced fuel consumption and improved CO2 emission and Bosch still sees potential for greater savings. In 2015, new technologies could be saving the average motorist driving 12,000 miles per year up to £250**.

 

Many of these low carbon technologies being developed by Bosch contribute towards environmental protection. Improvements in fuel economy could lead to 37 percent of new cars in 2015 emitting below 100g/km CO2. New cars in 2015 could emit half a tonne less CO2 per year than today’s average models.

The Ultimate Guide To Car Care Forum

For all new cars today, total annual CO2 emissions are estimated to be approximately 5.2 million tonnes. Within the next 3 years, this figure could drop to 4.4 million tonnes – reducing the UK’s CO2 output by almost 800,000 tonnes.

 

Bosch is the worlds leading manufacturer of diesel injection systems and also pioneered gasoline direct injection technology for passenger cars over 60 years ago.

Lower CO2 emissions for cars and improved efficiency of supply chain

‘GreenFuture’ strategy to include all sustainability programmes

New Octavia GreenLine is the most efficient ever with 86.0mpg and CO2 of 87g/km

48 ŠKODA models already under 120g/km, ten under 100g/km

ŠKODA production to use 25 per cent fewer resources

 

Mladá Boleslav, 12 March 2013 ŠKODA is stepping up its sustainability efforts under a new ‘GreenFuture’ program. The initiative, which forms an integral part of the ŠKODA Growth Strategy 2018 and the environmental strategy of the Volkswagen Group, will help current and future ŠKODAs become even more fuel-efficient, and will see resources used in a more sustainable fashion.

 

One of the first cars to be produced under the new GreenFuture initiative is the forthcoming Octavia GreenLine. With combined fuel consumption of 86.0mpg and CO2 emissions of just 87g/km, it will be the most fuel efficient Octavia ever produced.

 

The drive to lower emissions and maximise efficiency also extends to ŠKODA’s advanced production facilities. By reworking production methods and introducing new processes, ŠKODA aims to reduce waste and emission levels by 25 per cent per vehicle.

 

“ŠKODA has been honoring its responsibility for the environment for many years,” says ŠKODA’s Chairman of the Board, Prof. Dr. h. c. Winfried Vahland. “With ‘GreenFuture’ we will significantly step up and bundle our efforts for increased sustainability once more. We want to offer particularly environmentally-friendly automobiles and to manufacture and sell them in an even more sustainable fashion.

 

“‘GreenFuture’ is a clear, measurable commitment by the company and its employees towards environmental protection; we are investing in our green future. ‘GreenFuture’ is part of our Growth Strategy 2018 and, at the same time, an important part of the goal of the Volkswagen Group to become the leading environmentally-friendly automobile manufacturer in the world by 2018,” emphasizes Vahland.

 

To achieve its aim of making ŠKODA an even more efficient operation, ‘GreenFuture’ pulls together three core initiatives that cover every aspect of the business: GreenProduct, GreenFactory and GreenRetail.

 

Since 1991, the company’s direct expenditures for a sustainable use of resources have amounted to more than 410 million EUR (£348,400,000). In addition, ŠKODA has made investments in environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes, energy-saving facilities and the enhanced efficiency of its vehicles.

 

Through its GreenProduct initiative, ŠKODA is gearing up its efforts to make cars even more fuel efficient and even more recyclable.

 

In order to accomplish this goal, the Czech manufacturer and the Volkswagen Group are jointly working on modern technologies that contribute towards energy-efficient operations and decreased environmental pollution.

 

ŠKODA currently offers 48 models with emission figures of less than 120g/km, with 10 models featuring emissions of less than 100g/km. The brand is also looking to alternative fuels as a way of delivering low-emissions solutions to customers. The recently-launched ŠKODA Citigo CNG is powered by natural gas and enjoys CO2 emissions of just 79g/km. A new Octavia CNG is also in development and will be launched later this year.

 

ŠKODA is also continuing its research into electric cars. A test fleet of ten Octavia Green E-Line vehicles is being assessed on Czech roads with the findings being analysed with environmental partners.

 

Car Polish Reviews

Vehicle production is another key element of the ‘GreenFuture’ strategy. Within the framework of GreenFactory, the focus will be on reducing energy and water consumption and the amount of waste generated in the manufacturing of one vehicle. Likewise, emissions such as CO2 and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds generated in small amounts during the painting of car bodies), are to be lowered by one quarter.

 

One current example for resource-efficient production is the new press line at the plant in Mladá Boleslav, which was commissioned at the beginning of February. The new press line works more effectively and is among the most modern facilities of its kind in Europe. It requires up to 15 percent less energy than comparable older facilities and is able to temporarily store energy not needed at the time. Together with the Volkswagen Group, ŠKODA invested about 66 million EUR (£57.5m) on this facility alone.

Not a surprise to us here at Car Care Magazine are sure you will agree,

 

Well-known vehicle auction company British Car Auctions (BCA) has found that 63 per cent of motorists have actually cut back on their car usage in the past 12 months due to this worry,  an inconvenience for most drivers, but is this affecting productivity of small businesses.  In the past three years for instance, the cost of filling a  nissan navara from empty to full has risen from around £65.00 to just over £95.00.

 

On top of this, 45 per cent of drivers questioned as part of the study said that they now opt to walk to destinations which they would have travelled to in a vehicle previously, perhaps not a bad thing taking in to account the potential benefits, not only to their pockets, but to their health as well.

 

Despite these concerns though, the research also found that 65 per cent of motorists will fill up their fuel tank every time they visit a petrol station.
