Review: Armorall Interior Car Care Kit

Review: Armorall Interior Car Care Kit

My poor car has been somewhat neglected on the cleaning front over the winter. The outside needs a wash, the dashboard is dusty and the floors and seats need hoovering. After all, I have a toddler who loves to throw biscuits everywhere! Luckily, Armorall have come to my rescue and helped me to give my car some much needed TLC with their Interior Car Care Kit.

Kia Optima Sportswagon – The Perfect Family Car?

Kia Optima Sportswagon – The Perfect Family Car?

We recently had the pleasure of being asked to review a Kia Optima Sportswagon, to be a little more precise, a 2.0 GDi PHEV automatic. Stylish and full of mod cons, the Optima PHEV is Kia’s first plug-in hybrid model. We had the car for the weekend.

It’s for this reason that Aldi and Lidl are absolutely booming, despite the recession being over.

So, why would it be any different when buying a car? I’ll admit I’ve only personally gone car shopping a few times. However, I have learned some tips from scouring forums and my Uncle-in-law, but mostly my Dad! So far I haven’t just settled on the price put before me, and I’m sure I never will. Let me help you to get a better deal! View Post

Buying a car at auction from BPI Auctions

Buying a car at auction from BPI Auctions

Previously on the blog, I’ve written about the pros and cons of buying cars new, nearly new or used. When you’re buying a car used or nearly new, as well as checking out the side of main roads in your local area, you can also look online.

Of course, popular choices are sites such as Gumtree, eBay and Autotrader. However, there are auction sites other than eBay. In fact, while they’re still a little less known, they could be a cheaper and better choice for you! One of these sites is BPI Auctions. View Post
