osram-oct18Bulbs are sure to be big business over the coming months, but could your bulb sales be more profitable? Automotive lighting technology has moved on leaps and bounds in recent years, but all too often bulb sellers, garages and motorist still see bulbs as commodity items.

When it comes to headlamp bulbs especially, cheapest is definitely not the best option. The latest technology bulbs not only offer better performance, they also impact on driver comfort and safety, making a switch to a better quality bulb the sensible option on every level. Suggesting this switch can also provide a substantial boost for bulb business.

The key to boost bulb sales profits is up-selling and the Osram range has all the high quality options required.

If you are buying anything from a car to clothes, you will rarely buy on price alone, so why should the price be the deciding factor when it comes to a critical safety component on a car? When options are explained to them, most motorist are prepared to pay a little extra to get the benefits of a better bulb. For example, Osram Ultra Life bulbs last up to four times longer than a standard bulb, meaning they offer more convenience and peace of mind.

For greatly improved on-road night vision the Osram Nightbreaker Laser bulb is another good up-sell option. It offers 110% more light and a 40m longer beam than a standard bulb, making night driving safer and more relaxing because the drivers vision is greatly improved.

As well as headlamp bulbs, our Osram range also includes a complete range of other replacement bulbs, including LED driving lamps and daytime running lamps. We also offer a full range of 12 and 24 volt lighting with competitive pricing across the board.

Make the most of you bulb business this autumn with Osram lighting products from ADE.

Jurid OE Partnerships provide aftermarket quality guarantee

jurid-oct18Our Jurid brake pads are renowned for their quality and performance and are increasingly the first preference of garages fitting replacements, especially to premium German models. This reputation for quality has been hard won and is built on long standing OE supply partnerships with many of the world’s leading car makers. Being fitted as original equipment on a new model is the ultimate validation of Jurid’s product quality and in it quest for braking excellence.  

 Jurid is the braking name trusted by car makers for long term development partnerships. For example Jurid pads were first fitted as OE on the original WV Golf in 1974 and have been fitted on every generation of Golf since then, right up to the latest VII Facelift model. Jurid continues to work with leading car makers on an ongoing basis meaning it is fitted as OE to many of the latest models. For example:

Alfa Romeo Guilia

573663J Front 2.9 I Version

573664J Rear 2.9 I Version

573665J Front 2.0, 2.2 Version


Mercedes Benz A-Class

LIQUI MOLY adds new 0W-20 Mercedes approved oil

lm-merc-oct-18Reflecting the fact that the latest Mercedes engine technology requires very specialist oil, LIQUI MOLY has introduced new Top Tec 6300 0W-20, one of the first oils to be officially approved by Mercedes for the latest applications.

The current E-Class models by Mercedes require this oil spec, as do several C and S-Class models. These include diesel vehicles as well as petrol and hybrid vehicles. Top Tec 6300 is officially approved by Mercedes (MB 229.71) and is also suitable for Jaguar and Land Rover models (STJLR.51.5122).

Oliver Kuhn, deputy manager of the LIQUI MOLY oil laboratory says, “Such an official manufacturer approval is the highest quality award that an oil can receive. It says that the car manufacturer has fully tested the oil themselves and given their quality seal. The 0W-20 is very low viscosity oil. The thinner the oil, the less inner friction it has and the more efficiently the engine works."

Despite the oil’s low viscosity it ensures excellent lubrication even under extreme conditions. It is also low ash. This means that combustion residues of the oil do not burden the exhaust gas treatment systems and means for example a vehicle is less prone to DPF clogging.
