Tem­per­a­tures con­tinue to drop, but you’ll easily keep ice off your wind­screen with one of these TEX heated wind­screen washer sys­tems — avail­able now at NZ Clas­sic Car Mir­rors. Once in­stalled, the red heat ex­changer fits in the heater hose and the washer fluid col­lects heat while cir­cu­lat­ing around the ex­changer. Early morn­ing starts now no longer have to con­tain the risk of cold hands and scratched wind­screens. Suit­able for all car mod­els — not just clas­sics — the TEX sys­tem is avail­able ex­clu­sively from clas­s­ic­carmir­rors.com for $55, in­clud­ing de­liv­ery. Shell’s most ad­vanced for­mula for high-per­for­mance en­gines, and the only mo­tor oil trusted for use by Fer­rari, the Shell He­lix Ul­tra range uses Shell Pureplus tech­nol­ogy as the base for a high-end mo­tor oil. Shell says ac­tive cleans­ing tech­nol­ogy has al­ways been a sta­ple of Shell He­lix, and the Pureplus tech­nol­ogy aims to ac­tively keep en­gines clean to en­sure high lev­els of pro­tec­tion from en­gine wear. Used by many high-per­for­mance ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers, it’s en­gi­neered to per­form in even the most ex­treme driv­ing con­di­tions. This four-litre bot­tle of 5W–40 has an RRP of $72.99. For more in­for­ma­tion on the Shell He­lix Ul­tra range, visit shel­l­lu­bri­cants.co.nz. This re­versible 3-jaw oil fil­ter wrench has a ca­pac­ity of 64–102mm (or 2.5 to 4 inches). Its re­versible jaw is de­signed to fit most cars and light trucks. With ser­rated jaws to wrap around and grip the oil fil­ter firmly, it can easily re­move spin-on oil fil­ters in even the most con­fined spa­ces. Made to be durable and long last­ing, the Am­pro oil fil­ter wrench is only $32.20 and is avail­able now from Myau­to­mo­tive. The price in­cludes free freight any­where in New Zealand. Visit myau­to­mo­tive.co.nz for more in­for­ma­tion. If your ve­hi­cle fin­ish is look­ing dull, easily re­store shine with this seven-inch (180mm) pol­isher. Whether it needs a gen­tle buff, or a pow­er­ful pol­ish, the vari­able speed — from 600 up to 3200rpm — pol­isher de­liv­ers a smooth, uni­form fin­ish with an easily ad­justable speedcon­trol dial. A screw-down vent dust cover en­sures no wool-fi­bre fluff ingress, while the elas­tomer bumper en­sures your car’s sur­face is pro­tected from scratches, and the loop han­dle pro­vides a strong, yet com­fort­able, grip for pre­cise con­trol. For more in­for­ma­tion in this pol­isher (prod­uct code: 9237 CB), visit makita.co.nz or head to your lo­cal Maikta dealer.
