The Wheel Deal: Tips For Keeping Your New Car In Good Condition

When you purchase a new automobile, it loses thousands of dollars in value the moment you drive it away. However, that doesn't mean it has to continue down that path. If you’re smart, you can make sure your vehicle retains as much value as possible during the first few years. That should mean you can sell it for a reasonable amount when you want something different. There are lots of measures you can take to ensure your car doesn’t deteriorate too much. Thankfully, most of them are straightforward and inexpensive. The tips below are just there to point you in the right direction. You still need to use some common sense and think outside of the box.




Use quality floor mats


Floor mats are one of the best ways to protect the interior of your car. Your vehicle should come with some already fitted. Even so, they won’t be the best product on the market. That is because dealers will try to make as much profit from your purchase as possible. So, it’s sensible to head out and visit a local specialist. You should identify the most advanced designs and buy them immediately. WeatherTech floor mats and similar items are guaranteed to make a noticeable difference. Your footwells will remain clean and dry, and you shouldn’t cause any damage to the carpet material underneath.




Only fill your car with premium fuel


It’s often tempting to purchase biofuel or something of that nature to power your new vehicle. While that will help you to reduce costs, it’s not the best solution for your engine. You need to use premium gas if you want to ensure it always runs correctly. The car was designed to operate using standard fuels, and so you should never use alternatives. That could result in lots of issues that lower the value of your automobile. Also, you might end up having to pay for lots of unexpected repairs.




Clean the vehicle regularly


Washing your car is one of the best ways to make sure it stays in good condition. The latest eShine cleaning products should help with that. If you leave it for a couple of months, the buildup of dirt could cause deterioration. That is the last thing you want to happen. Keeping it clean will limit the chances of the body becoming rusty and bring many other benefits. We’re not saying you have to head outside every weekend and perform the task by hand. However, a quick visit to your local car wash is a wise move. It only costs a few dollars to get the vehicle ship-shape. That’s money well spent when you consider how much you could lose in the paintwork looks faded.

Now you know some of the best ways to keep your new car in good condition, there is no excuse for letting things slide. You don’t have to work hard to keep on top of stuff, and you’ll feel glad you made an effort when the time comes to sell. Using those methods, you should have no trouble getting around ½ of the purchase price back if you swap the car in two to three years.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they?

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
