Stop Start Solutions
fiam-ssThe reintroduction of Fiamm batteries to the ADE range has proved to be a major hit with customers. The range offers OE batteries for all makes and models at competitive prices. It also includes the very latest AGM (Absorbent Glass Material) technology the most effective battery solution for micro hybrid cars with Start & Stop functionality, Brake Energy Regeneration and other technologies designed to reduce fuel consumption.

Such technology is now becoming increasingly common on the latest models and is particularly popular on makes such as BMW and Citroen. Remember normal batteries are not suitable for  cars with Start & Stop technology and can mean breakdowns, potential system damage and can even be dangerous.

EcoForce batteries from Fiamm provide the perfect solution for when a new technology battery is required and are now available from ADE.

Summer Safety Checks
With most cars now on extended service intervals garages need to get a little more creative when it comes to keeping in contact with their customers and their vehicles. A summer safety check is a great way of doing this and is well worth encouraging as it can mean added business for all, while keeping the customer car safe and performing well.

It is a fact that during the summer drivers often expect their cars to do so much more. The simple commute can become a cross country journey and a car that normally only carries a single person suddenly has to cope with maybe five passengers and their luggage.

This can all mean added strain on brakes, shock absorbers, clutches and suspension components, so a pre-holiday check to make sure they can take the strain becomes a very sensible idea.  

No one wants to have car problems when they are away on holiday and a simple summer safety check is one means of avoiding this. Garages should have a clear safety check on display at their premises to include;  shock absorbers, brakes, coolant and oil levels, drive belts, air-conditioning, windscreen wipers and washers, and tyres. Any items found to be suspect can then be replaced with quality components to avoid problems on summer journeys.
