With the new 68-plates revealed at the start of September, what better time to take a look through our favourite brands and what’s new and coming up.
After Theresa May’s recent pledge of £106 million towards research and developing zero-emissions technology, including green vehicles, new batteries and low carbon technology, many are wondering if these plans are too ambitious for the UK. As drivers, are we prepared to give up our petrol and diesel engines and make the move to Electric?
All the signs are there, yes, autumn is here. It’s a tricky season, one-minute dry and bright, the next wet, windy and dark. And any morning you might be greeted with thick frost. But with a little thought and preparation, drivers can be prepared.
At Exchange and Mart, one of the reasons why we’ve been around for 150 years (and counting!) is because we value the opinions of our customers.
Many of our best loved cars have changed the way they look more times than we care to count, and we can forget just how they looked when they were first introduced to the market.
You may have heard that we’re celebrating 150 years of Exchange and Mart, which means celebrating 150 years of connecting buyers and sellers. It all began back in 1868 with the very first printed edition of Exchange and Mart, a place where people could ‘Buy, sell, or exchange anything’. And we meant anything, from stamps to servants, you could shop for everything and even find a job.
These days we take a lot of new developments in technology and safety for granted. If you’re a driver you’re probably used to in-car technology such as cruise control, parking aids, Bluetooth and even DAB radio becoming a standard feature in most new cars these days.
150 years ago, when Exchange and Mart was just starting out, cars were still a bit of a pipe dream. It was such a new concept that motoring laws and regulations that are commonplace today didn’t even exist. So we’re taking a trip down memory lane to some of the most iconic moments in British motoring history, from the early 1900s up until this year.
Depending on your car’s age, it’s likely that it will need some TLC over the course of your ownership. If you’re fond of an older car, or you’re just looking to keep costs low, here are some simple maintenance steps that you can do at home, even if you have limited mechanical knowledge:
