Used Jaguar - Bringing Sexy Back

11. Dec 2017 03:04, auautelblog

So, you are in need (or want) of a new car, aren't we all at some time or another? You know the one you want, you've given it a test drive, and it's divine. The engine purrs beneath you, powerful and yet subtle, it looks good and you look good in it.


The little voice inside your head, you know the one that told you if you learned guitar at fifteen you'd be famous and loaded by twenty five? Yes, that one. Well this car makes it very happy.


There's just one small problem, its sixty grand over budget. After all, we are in a recession, and promotions or rises are scarce to come by, so maybe you should settle for something slightly less sexy and slightly more affordable…or should you? Maybe there's a way to have your cake (or car) and eat it too.


Buying a used or second hand car is a great option autel, especially as there's currently such a huge market for it, most name brand car websites now support or endorse their own retailer of second hand cars with at least a sister site. I know it might not have the same gleam as walking into a brand new dealership and driving away in The Car, but you might not have to sacrifice quite as much as you thought. The team behind Jaguar have taken ‘Second hand' to a brand new level.


On the Jag website you can enter your postcode and up comes a list of available second hand cars for sale in your area, that have all been pre- approved by their team.


‘Approved' in this respect has new meaning too, these come with a full vehicle inspection, a Jaguar supported warranty and a 1,000 miles or 30 day exchange plan. Whereas before this was only expected of vintage or collectors cars, they've brought the whole idea of ‘second hand' up to date, and do all the work for you.


Long gone are the days of trawling through newspapers to find a hidden gem, getting up early on the one day a week you deserve a lie in, and visiting vintage car shows, now it's just a click away. That age old taboo of being tricked into buying an old banger has been mercilessly replaced with a slick alternative.


The best part, of course, is that you're getting the car you want, less than 5 years old in reassuringly good quality Autel MaxiSys MS906BT, for a whole lot less. Take the beautiful 2005, XK8, 4.2 V8 advertised, (the one my little voice goes a bit soft for) it's done just over 40,000 miles and is less than twenty grand. That little voice in the back of your head just punched the air and said ‘Yes!' in a gleeful tone didn't it?


Plus with that exchange plan if you find it doesn't quite purr the right way for you, then what's to stop you trying out another model?


Without a doubt, a used Jaguar just became sexy again.

Used Dodge - The Dodge Challenger

5. Dec 2017 02:38, auautelblog

I have always dreamt of owning a powerful and completely unashamedly over the top American Muscle car. What is interesting is that this dream covers cars from the 60s right through to the modern creations of today, suggesting that the central theme and general approach to the design is what I like, rather than the designs specifics. A need elongated vintage Mustang looks as good to me as the new chunkier models of today, and I respect each ere for the approaches and priorities that they really stood for.


One of my favourite American muscles cars, aside from the obvious (but darn sexy) Ford Mustang, is actually the Dodge Challenger. Whilst the Dodge brand in the UK is much more restrained and consequently much less exciting, the American brand continues to produce cars like the challenger - ostentation, dramatic, and totally in your face! This is why I love it Autel MaxiCOM MK808, and one day I hope to organise importing one over from the US no matter what the price.


So, let's start with the looks. You have probably seen a Challenger on TV before, as they are used all over the shop in films and television to portray the American spirit in a car - a feat which I think they do very well! You have that typical muscled shape in this car - with a chunky low down stance, aggressive front grill and elongated hood, all of which lead back to a small but perfectly situated windscreen and drivers seat. The shape is so traditional for this type of car that I almost expect to see flames coming out of the back like in some Grease-esque moment from the 60's - and the backwards leaning shape makes me expect it to rear up and whinny at any moment!


Those looks are great, although critics do like to comment on the similarity to the equally gorgeous Ford Mustang, the new version of which was also released at around about the same time. If you aren't particularly precious about design features, however, then you should be able to appreciate this for the beautiful and beasty car that this one is.


The specs of this car thankfully manage to live up to the expectations that were unavoidably raised when we saw the beautiful styling. Under the hood is an astonishing (and possibly slightly unnecessary) 6.1 litre V8 engine, which not only looks obviously impressive if you are into showing off your engine, but has the performance to match all the expectations Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS. This delivers a significant 425 Horsepower, and I doubt anyone is going to be disappointed with those figures. Of course, as will all muscle cars like this, the drive isn't exactly smooth - but to get the max out of this type of engine you need to expect a wild and hard to tame beast that needs the expert touch to make it deliver. This isn't for the faint hearted!


Hopefully you can see why this car is one of my favourites. Not only is it beautiful, but it has specs that can make people wince!

Used Car Prices - Find The Best Deal

1. Dec 2017 03:29, auautelblog

Used car prices vary according to demand. When dealers have a good stock of cars that have been traded in against new models you might expect used car prices to fall.


The prices of used cars is generally at a maximum at the same time as the prices of new cars, at the beginning of the year or of any new, date specific registration period. This is because demand is at a maximum at the same time as supply is maximized.


Used car prices are subject to much bigger variations than new cars. The price charged will depend on the price the dealer has paid for the car as trade-in Autel Maxisys MS908CV, how much work is needed on the car and the dealer's profit mark-up. Dealers in fancy showrooms in the expensive part of town have higher overheads and therefore a higher mark-up.


Your best chance of a good deal is to find a dealer who has a good supply of the model you are interested in.


Shop around, because dealers have their favorite cars and these are priced higher than others. You want a dealer who hates the model that you want to buy. This dealer will set a lower price to sell the car more quickly.


You will also pay a higher price for any given make of used car if you buy from a main dealer. The main dealer knows that you are going there because you want that make and model, so they can charge you more for it.


If there has been a new model released, then the price for the older and visually dated model will plummet Autel MaxiCOM MK808. Yet that model will not have the teething problems that any new car has. It is never a good idea to buy a car, either new or used that was produced in the first 6 - 12 months of a new model.

Used BMW - How to Test Drive One

28. Nov 2017 04:22, auautelblog

Driving a BMW is a little bit like learning all over again. By that I don't mean that they are completely wildly different to every other car on the market - just that to me their drive and balance is a deliciously different experience to the other more generic cars on the market. I find that German cars in particular are worth paying extra for, as they drive beautifully whilst still retaining that attitude and drive that they are so renowned for.


Of course, knowing that you personally like BMWs doesn't help you much in the car buying process. Sure, it may suggest an area of the market to start looking in, but it doesn't make it any clearer whether you would be best suited to a smart little hatchback or a huge SUV. Would you prefer a convertible or a saloon? What sized wheels do you want, how much pull do you need. These, unfortunately, are the things that are inspired by your passion, but have to be followed up with plain old fashioned research Autel MaxiSys MS906TS.


Part of that research needs to be taking a few cars out for a test drive. This shouldn't be reserved for your favourite model - you should take a selection out of differing brands so that you know exactly when thing to look out for and just what sort of car you prefer. This is the same whether you intend on buying a new or a used BMW - all cars need to be tested regardless of whether they are fresh off the production line!


To test drive a BMW, first do the obvious - book in at your local forecourt for a time, or walk in a try your luck to see if they can take you out in it there and then. As long as you are testing a new or used car from a dealership you should be insured, but always check your insurance if testing a private car - after all, the regulations for buying and selling in their market are pretty much nonexistent. They will also want to see your licence in order to drive it - so make sure you have it on you or it will be a wasted trip!


When you get in the BMW and start driving, you have to pay attention to plenty of things - especially so if you are trying out a used BMW not a new one. Pay attention to the breaks and suspension, noting any bumps and clonking noises, as well as how easily it changes gear. Any little annoying things you notice could reveal some terribly problems underneath, so don't ignore them so as not to make a fuss.


BMWs feel different to other cars, in my humble opinion, so make sure to test out a few just to make sure you have a frame of reference. Here you want to be paying attention to personal likes and preferences - do you like light steering, or do you prefer a more determined wiggle? Either way could make a difference to whether you love your new car - or hate it!

A thief could easily take away the bike by simply removing the wheel to free the bike. These kinds of bike racks are known as "wheel benders".

A modern style of bike rack is known as a "Sheffield rack". These racks comprise of a thick metal bar, which is given the shape of a square arch. The top part is equal to the top bar of the bicycle frame and provides security for the frame.

Loading Your Bike

?If you are using a bus, inform the bus driver that you will be using the bike rack. Speedily load your bike while other passengers are getting into the bus.

?Approach the bike rack from the curbside. Squeeze the handle in the center to lower the rack.

?Place your bike into the rack, fitting the wheel into a wheel slot. If you are loading your bike in the first slot then the handlebar should be towards the curb, while in the second slot, they should remain away from the curb.

Unsticking a Stuck Oil Filter

17. Nov 2017 03:24, auautelblog

Automotive oil filters are not supposed to be put on with wrenches Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS. They should only ever be put on hand-tightened or you may never get them off again. The bad thing is that sometimes the oil filter put on at the factory feels like it's been put on with an impact wrench Autel MaxiSys MS906BT. And, sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just cannot get that old filter off with your hands.


Here are a few tips to help ease your frustration and keep you from damaging your car in the process.


1. Get a good quality adjustable oil filter wrench - this one will solve 90% of all problems getting your old oil filter off. Be sure to look for one that is adjustable in diameter so it will fit your oil filter, and will actually be able to fit into the spot you need to get your filter out of. The bad news is that there are still going to be times when you won't be able to get the filter off even with the filter wrench.


2. The old long screwdriver trick - this one's been around for ages. If you don't have an oil filter wrench, or you wrench just keeps slipping around the filter but not actually loosening it, you still have hope. You have to be careful here not to do damage to your car, but if you're careful, it can work out great. What you need is a long screwdriver and a small hammer. The steel shaft of the screwdriver needs to be long enough to go completely through one side of the oil filter and out the other. If it's not long enough, you'll end up in trouble. What you do is put the tip of the screwdriver in the middle of one side of the oil filter, and tap the end with a small hammer until the screwdriver pierces the skin of the filter. Be sure to do this towards the end of the filter away from where it attaches to the engine, otherwise you risk damaging the nipple that the filter threads to. You're going to get a good bit of oil draining out when you pierce the skin. Just sit back and let it drain. It's much easier if you don't have oil dripping all over you. Once the oil has drained, continue tapping on the screwdriver until the top pierces through the other side of the filter. You should now have a screwdriver all the way through the filter. Now, just use the handle of the screwdrive to twist the filter out.


3. One last tip, when you put the new filter on, be sure to rub a small amount of oil on the new seal, and only tighten it with your hands. Spin it on the nipple until it stops spinning freely, and then turn it another 1/4 to 1/2 turn by hand until it's tight. That'll make it much easier to get off next time.

Understanding The Airbag

13. Nov 2017 02:46, auautelblog

Ever since it was developed, the airbag has created a special role in the automotive industry in terms of features for car safety. According to some recent crash tests, airbags indeed can save a person's life during vehicle collisions. Let us discuss more about airbags, find out how it works, and discover the benefits it could offer.


An airbag is a flexible, inflatable object that contains air or some other gas. It is also called the Air Cushion Restraint System (ACRS). Airbags can actually absorb the impact taken from a car crash by creating a cushion thus reducing the injuries of the vehicle's occupants. The airbag system consists of three substantial parts: the airbag module Autel Diaglink, the crash sensor, and the diagnostic unit. Each part plays a significant role during a car crash. The airbag module is the one that contains the lightweight fabric that inflates during collision. Basically, there are two airbag modules located in a conventional vehicle like the new Lincoln Town Car, the driver airbag module and the passenger airbag module. The driver airbag module is located at the center of the steering wheel while the passenger module is dramatically placed at the instrument panel.


Because vehicles can have one or more crash sensors, they are located in different areas - either at the front of the vehicle near the bumper or in the passenger compartment area. The crash sensor works as a triggering device that measures the deceleration, which is the decreased velocity of a car or the rate in which the car slows down. The sensor is activated during the car crash which actually is the force that was generated in the front or rear of a car.


The last part of an airbag system, which is the diagnostic unit, acts as a condition sensor for the airbag. It measures the preparedness of the airbag in case of a car crash. The diagnostic unit activates when the car's engine is turned on. It checks the airbag if it is in good condition and ready to use. If certain problem occurs, a warning light is activated and signals the driver that the airbag is malfunctioning and needs to be fixed.


During its peak of development, airbags only focus on frontal impacts. It cannot absorb impacts generated from the rear and side of a vehicle thus making it an ineffective safety device for rollovers and side impacts Autel MaxiDiag MD808. However, with the latest trend in the automotive industry along with the new technological safety features, vehicles are now equipped with rear, side, and even curtain airbags to protect its occupants from injuries during car collisions. Who knows what other benefits and updates will airbags offer in the future?
