ufi-hyundaiNow available in the ADE UFI Filter range is an important new aftermarket replacement filter for Hyundai and Kia applications that are hugely popular in Ireland.

The UFI diesel fuel filter cartridge is designed for a wide range of the most popular cars from these two leading Korean manufacturers.  The new filter, product code 24.123.00 covers a host of important applications, from the Hyundai i20 and Tucson to the Kia Venga and Sportage.

UFI Filters is the only OE supplier of Hyundai and Kia diesel filtration systems, meaning it is in a unique position as the only company able to offer true OE quality to the aftermarket on these applications.

The UFI Group is involved in six different OE diesel filtration projects covering the entire Hyundai and Kia ranges. UFI was selected by the global car giant thanks to an innovative filtration media that provides superb filtration and water separation performance. The entire range of filters destined for the European market is produced in the modern UFI facility in Ostrava in the Czech Republic. This plant is highly automated, using the latest-generation machinery, and is located near the Hyundai Motor Group plant.

The filtration media used in aftermarket applications is distinguished by its highly effective dual-stage filtration system: a first barrier is made from a cellulose-based material, with a second made from hydrophobic mesh to remove any residual water particles. The guaranteed filter efficiency is 99.6% @ 4 μm and the water separation exceeds 90%.

Remember UFI is the only filter supplier that can truly claim that its aftermarket diesel fuel filters for Hyundai and Kia offer the  exact same levels of innovation, quality and technological expertise that are to be found in the OE products.

An energy drink for your engine

lm-energyJust like people, some times engines can require an energy boost and just like an energy drink, Liqui Moly Speed Tec additives can make engines more responsive and alert.

Speed Tec Gasoline is an effective petrol fuel additive specially developed to noticeably improve acceleration and throttle response under partial load. It cleans and optimises engine performance for increased driving pleasure and a better starting smoother running engine.

Speed Tec Diesel can have the same effect on diesel engines. It improves performance and provides added protection. It is suitable for all diesel engines both with and without diesel particulate filters and is tested safe with catalytic converters and turbochargers.

Both Speed Tec products provide a quick and easy energy boost for an engine by simply adding to the fuel tank. Each 250ml pack is sufficient for up to 70 Litres of fuel.

New FAI Oil Sump Range

Now available in our FAI product line-up is a new range of high quality oil sump pans. There are currently 50 products available with more to be added and each comes with a sump plug and relevant gasket for installation.

FAI sump pans are made to OE specifications and are leak and pressure tested to ensure long life and hassle free fitting. Each is Laser etched with an FAI logo to provide quality assurance. Both aluminium and steel versions are available for 22 vehicle brands and 2500 individual applications. These are detailed on the MAM digital catalogue and will shortly be available on TecDoc.

Sump pans are prone to damage because of poor roads, debris and speed bumps. Damage can lead to corrosion and oil loss which can mean  serious engine failure. For this reason inspecting and, where required, replacing sump pans is recommended every time a vehicle is in the workshop.


obdThe future of the OBD connector, the small communication device that allows independent garages access to vehicle diagnostic data, is under threat, because of changes to EU vehicle type approval legislation. Without an OBD, the independent garage would find it much more difficult to diagnose and repair cars and franchised dealers would have an unfair advantage. If cars are allowed to be made with no OBD connector the consequences are serious. Independent garages, motor factors and many other motor trade companies would be under severe threat. It would also mean service and repair prices would rise and customer choice would be diminished.

Discussions are currently taking place in Brussels that could have a serious impact on the future of the aftermarket and it is important for your European representative to be aware of the importance of this issue.

To save the OBD and put pressure on your MEP to ensure the independent aftermarket has easy and economical access to the diagnostic information please take a few moments to sign a petition organised by Autobiz magazine. Just go to and type in your details and your name will be added to a petition for your area.

Please also encourage your customers to do the same and   spread the word to as many people as possible.

Remember without an OBD manufacturers would effectively have a monopoly on vehicle diagnostic data and independent garages would only be able to access information such as fault codes and diagnostic readings through manufacturer controlled servers, if at all.

The very future of the aftermarket in Europe is at stake and with it some 3.5 million jobs in 500,000 companies, many of which play a vital role in their local community.

This is a very real and genuine threat and one that every aftermarket company in Ireland needs to be aware of.

Please do not sit back and assume that the current status quo on the connector will be maintained. Take a few moments to sign the petition now at
