7 Things That Will Make Your Life As A Petrolhead So Much Easier

Us petrolheads spend most of our time fixing, driving and admiring our cars. That's why we need to streamline our lives to make being a petrolhead even more enjoyable. Here are some of the things that will help you along the way!

1. GoPros

Anyone with even a passing in cars needs to have at least one GoPro at the ready to record a sexy exhaust note, or to simply capture footage of a great road. They’re lightweight, durable as hell, record in HD and won’t let you down!

2. Supercar hire

Owning a supercar is super stressful if you don’t make at least £100 every time you breathe. Because this probably doesn’t apply to you yet, then do yourself a favour and get a slice of the pie before you’re 50 by hiring a car out for a day. City Supercars is a great place to start.

3. Don't waste time, buy your car the easy way!

We’ve all been there: you’re trying to buy a new car, but everything you’ve seen so far hasn’t been as advertised because the sellers are either chancers, or because they genuinely know nothing about cars.

Make life easy for yourself by buying through a site like Car Spring. They inspect and test drive the car for you, do all the paperwork, and even drop your new ride off at your front door. What could be easier?

4. Friendly tyre sealant

There was a time when sealants would render your tyres useless after being used because they gunked up the rubber. But times have changed, meaning it’s now safe to carry a can of the stuff, use it, then get your tyre repaired later.

Add Seal is a perfect case in point because it can be easily washed out after use. One of the biggest benefits, of course, is weight reduction compared to carrying a spare wheel.

5. Dating made easy

If you’ve already won at life, and if you’ve got the kind of car that makes petrolheads like us weak at the knees, then why not share your awesomeness with someone who appreciates the finer things in life…like 0-62mph in around 3.5 seconds and 200mph+ top speed runs! Luckily, there’s a website for that. It’s called SupercarDating and what it does is match you up with like-minded people who have signed up for the service.

6. Get your car parts for cheap!

The sun’s shining and your car (project or not) needs some attention, be it fitting some new bulbs, changing the oil or maybe even replacing the gaskets. Do yourself a favour and get the parts nice and cheap in the Euro Car Parts summer clearance.

7. Search hundreds of new wheels in one place

Shopping for new wheels can be a minefield of different makes, various websites and massive price ranges. USA Rim makes shopping for rims easy because it lays out your options for different car brands and tells you exactly what models they’ll fit. Simples!
