How To Get The Best Out Of In-Car Technology

Over the years our cars and vans have become so much more than vehicles for simply getting us from A to B.

Classic cars for sale

Classic cars for sale

Over the past few years as investment returns have diminished in a world of low interest rates, the value of classic cars has rocketed. Maybe these vehicles are just museum pieces and like many masterpieces will seldom get an airing. If you’re rich and own a private stable I dare say you can gain a great deal of personal satisfaction stocking your metal behind closed doors alone or in the company of intimate acquaintances. But surely half the fun of having your money invested in rolling stock as opposed to the bank is that you want to flaunt it from time to... Read full article

Pros and Cons of Providing Company Cars to Your Employees

Company cars offer a great many perks for staff, but just like with everything, they also come with their fair share of downsides. Not least is the task presented for the employer and employees in making sense of the tax system, but also the potentiality of racking up costs with high purchase prices and maintenance issues.

It has been disclosed that a £15 wireless device can be purchased online which amplifies a modern car’s wireless entry system allowing access to the car by a third-party.
