Whether you fix up cars for fun, watch Top Gear (or the Grand Tour) on demand or have only just passed your test, some new car accessories are sure to earn you some serious lad points.
- Portable Wi-Fi device
Want to stay connected even when you’re on the road? Invest in a portable Wi-Fi device, and you’ll be able to check your emails, share some photos or use Google Maps without eating into your phone data. This handy little device will also make you popular with your mates: they can be tweeting, Instagramming and swiping left or right while you drive – at least you’ll have the radio to listen to until your next bathroom break.
Even the laziest of drivers can keep their car clean and tidy with an anti-slip car dash grip pad. Place the grip pad on your dashboard, and it’ll hold your phone, glasses, and coins in place even when the car is moving. You can find them online for as little as 70 pence.
- Drop Stop
Tired of trying to hoover up the rubbish that falls in those tiny gaps by your car seat? Invest in a ‘Drop Stop, ’ and you’ll never have to worry about scooping out loose change, your phone or keys when you drop down those hard-to-reach places. Car seat gap fillers provide 100% coverage and even fit around seatbelts. They’re made of neoprene (a material that’s used to make wetsuits) so are waterproof and durable meaning they’ll withstand food and liquids – good for McDonald’s trips.
- Tyre Gauges
Take care of your tyres by investing in a tyre pressure gauge and tyre tread depth gauge, so you know exactly when your tyres need replacing. Then, to avoid a lengthy drive and wait in the garage, check out what mobile tyre-fitting services are available in your local area. Garages offering this service tend to offer a range of tyres so they can accommodate all customers. For example, Wiltshire Tyres stock all of the leading brands and offer a mobile service all over County Wiltshire from Swindon down to Salisbury. They’ll fit tyres in Swindon at your home or work, so you don’t have to take time off or spend your weekend in the garage.
5. TechMatte MagGrip 360 Air Vent Mount
In today’s tech-mad society, we all have some sort of hands-free device installed in our car for when we need the help of Google Maps to get somewhere – but have you heard of the TechMatte MagGrip 360 Air Vent Mount
? This cool little device sits on your dashboard, holding your phone in place with the flexibility to rotate and tilt the device to fit around you. Jump in the car, place your phone onto the mount and you’re ready to go. It can be used for both travel and business by easily displaying a map and allowing you to keep up to date with emails and alerts so you can pull over for anything that requires a quick response.
