Company Vehicle Leasing Essentials

Standard

Most businesses find that company car leasing is a much better option in comparison to out-rightly buying the vehicle. Also known as ‘contract hire’ this kind of leasing involves the renting of a vehicle by a specific company for an agreed up period and mileage.

This agreement allows the client company to pay a fixed amount of money every month to the leasing company. The client company chooses how long it wants the lease to run for and once that term elapses, it either renews the contract or simply hand the car back to the leasing company.

The main advantage that this kind of arrangement brings to the client company is that they have a fixed expense that is associated with the leased vehicle. They only need to insure it, pay associated taxes and fuel the vehicle. This is a more ‘constant’ figure as opposed to buying a car that comes with a host of expenses including the purchasing price.

Brembo brake calipers on the Limited Edition Fiat Coupé

Standard

There were minor differences between the limited edition Fiat Coupé and the original version but one of the most popular additions were the Brembo brake calipers. These added a more luxurious, sporty look to the vehicle, while they were finished in bold red.

This is where the red caliper trend began, and there were standard red calipers to the rear of the vehicle. The 2 door Fiat Coupé was designed to be a sporty everyday car. And the limited edition took the sportiness that little bit further, and perhaps that’s why it will go down as a classic.

Brembo brake calipers are still available to day, and you can find them on Corvettes and porches, and that just symbolises the class they can add to a vehicle.

The Fiat Coupe Spoiler

Standard

There are many spoilers out there that are often added to a Fiat Coupe. Some say that it’s the finishing touch the model, but others argue that it spoils the design of the car.

There’s no doubt that spoilers can add a sporty touch to a vehicle, and it may prove to be a popular addition for young drivers, but that’s not really what coupes are about. Without the spoiler you do have quite a stylish car, but if you wanted a sporty fiat then you should probably be looking at the Fiat Bravo.

Thought the production lines have ended for the Fiat Coupe, the popularity remains strong, and there will always be a continuous debate about whether the spoiler adds class the original model or makes it less appealing.

Wheel Alignment Maintenance

Standard

A good time to have the wheel alignment of your vehicle checked is whenever you’re having new tyres installed. We are always told about how tyres need to be changed regularly and be the right model of tyre for your car, otherwise the efficiency of your vehicle will be reduced, and your driving experience will also be affected. The same can be said for wheel alignment, which will also affect you driving experience significantly.

Wheel alignment refers to the angle that the wheels are adjusted to. With cars, the manufacturer will often specify the correct setting, although some drivers will opt to have a different setting, thereby achieving a different driving experience. You will see this most commonly with cars used in off road racing, where they’ve had their wheel alignment adjusted so that they will perform better for the set of circumstances they’ll be under. But usually, the best option for car owners is to follow the manufacturers recommendations.
