CarChicks Society For Car DIVAS!!!...

That Amy Slade lass is more than merely keen. I have been following her stuff of late and discovered something close to my heart. For I was raised by an Agony Aunt and so have feminism builded into my very upbringing. I might hold open doors and carry stuff, get things down from high shelves for...

Week Fourteen – The Clocks Just Stitched US UP...

Mar 29 2015 22:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
UGH! How I detest the ‘Spring Forward’ day. I like to sleep but I also love being about of an early summer morn and a Tench-fishers’ dream is to awaken in the grey of a May day dawn-gloaming, to a swim fizzing having attracted greeny-bronze Tincas with golden eyes with your prebaited corn. That...

CLARION: Amy @ The Ace!

Mar 25 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Shows & Events
Equipment sponsorship is a funny thing. Lots of wannabes think they are a rolling ‘gift’ to car audio manufacturers and seem to wear a sense of entitlement. As if their own self importance is all that matters, with vague assurances offered by them, that the recipient of any favours, will be ‘good...

Week Thirteen – Black Death Desolates All Euro...

Mar 23 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
We all know that brands have image and fanbases. We also know that most folks like to follow the herd and few are daring enough to forge their own path. These are the leaders, the doers and makers. And while some accrue reputations in various directions, these are not always down to facts so much...

Week Twelve – The Driving Test Turns Eighty Today

Mar 16 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
My knee is a chunk better and has the rubbery support the poor benighted thing needs, with neoprene and springs, while the two devices I have need of installation in my ride are still not in… must do better. I want my Halo fore-and-aft cam and Magic Snadger Device on board! A set of neat multi-fi...

JVC KD-R741BT Single DIN CD Tuner with USB, Aux...

Mar 11 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Source Units
A category of review that is really about the heritage and branding, because the unit has been superseded. It got a bit buried but I still wanted to have a go on it rather than send it home untested. The very latest iteration of this level of device has only just this minute come out and is the 8...

Week Eleven – Injury Puts Me On The Bench

Mar 10 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
First, minor apologies for delay. The JVC KD-R741BT deck took a little more time to get to grips with than I had thought. It was in fact just a quick press of the ‘reset’ button. On most in car CD players, there is a tiny round aperture, with the word ‘reset’ raised into the injection moulding, b...

Regular readers may recall that the JL Audio UK folks sponsored a wicked VIP night at Brian Car Sounds & Security, a few months back. Here, if you missed it, is the link to the BCSS story. Read story →    0 comments    -----

Week Ten – New Ride Paranoia and Pioneer Passion

Mar 02 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
Do you recall the massive meteorite that was recorded on so very many Russian in car dashcam recorders? For dash cams are compulsory in Russia. Just as well, when you see the awesome destruction and drunken mayhem of some of the clips of Russian motoring on social media. The biggest wavefront of...

Feb 24 2015 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Shows & Events
This Saturday, at Car Audio & Security’s Pump Lane. Hayes location, they are having a launch event for the new range of Rotiform wheels. CAS are the UK distributors for these loved-by-those-who-know rims. The new range of cast Rotiforms will cover three models at this launch, with some more comin...
