We’re all for saving money here at paultan.org. It’s nice to indulge, occasionally – that nice hipster cafe brunch, the latest iPhone, that set of rims that you’ve been eyeing forever – but YOLO too often and you might not have funds for the bigger things in life. You know, for things such a Euro trip, or when that dream car suddenly becomes available. Or even your first home. But there’s a time and place for everything, and there are things that one should never skimp on. Things such as engine oil, for one. It’s surely false economy to get an “affordable” motor oil with dubious origins to protect the heart of your car, which is the first or second (after property) most expensive item you’ve ever bought. It makes sense to protect your car’s engine with top quality lubricants, for it to serve you well for many years in turn. When it comes to quality lubricants, Shell Helix is right up there at the top, but a successful … [Read more...] about When it comes to engine oil, buy quality, buy original
Try as we might, there’s no way for us to directly prevent something undesirable from happening in our lives. For instance, you could be the most cautious person behind the wheel, avoiding every pothole that your brain can remember on your way to work, but somehow, a stray nail will still manage to deflate your tyre. Such an incident not only leaves you stranded as you get the flat tyre replaced, but you’ll also need to bring out one of the most commonly-used excuses to explain why you’re late. However, what if it didn’t need to be that way? Is there a tyre that allows you to continue driving your car safely without losing control? Fortunately, the answer is yes, and they are called run-flat tyres. If you’ve never heard of such tyres before, they feature strengthened sidewalls so that in the case of a puncture, you’ll be able to keep moving. The thing is, not all run-flat tyres are made equal, and some may deliver on the run-flat promise, albeit at … [Read more...] about AD: Bridgestone S001 RFT run-flat tyres with NanoPro-Tech

Slightly more than a year ago, AXA Affin General Insurance launched AXA FlexiDrive, a new kind of motor insurance that uses telematics to track driver habits, encouraging smooth and safe driving in return for discounts on one’s annual insurance premium. With a telematics device in the car, it also promises emergency and vehicle recovery services in the event of accident or theft. One year on, there have been many cases where AXA FlexiDrive has made a difference in the motoring lives of its customers. Wong, who got into an accident, loves the fact that he’s never alone. “I never had an experience where I got a call from the insurance company immediately after an accident. It was very reassuring getting a call from someome to ask if you need help or is there anything they can do for you,” he said. “It’s a very good tool. I always have it on my phone because it helps me with a lot of things – locate my car if anybody breaks in, and on top of that, … [Read more...] about AXA FlexiDrive – one year on, does telematics motor insurance make a difference in safety and savings?
