If you’ve found yourself on our luxury car blog, then you must have a keen eye for the finer things in life. You love the rich, soft interiors, the smell of fresh leather, and the roar of a top class engine. (Like the new Camaro). Perhaps you’re a fan of the classics, and you’re hoping to restore your favourite car. Whatever lead you here, welcome, and we hope you find something useful. In this particular post, we’re looking at keeping your pride-and-joy in perfect condition. There’s no point spending thousands on a car if you can’t keep it looking pristine. Here’s where to start.

Store it in a dry garage

The cold and damp has a bigger effect on your motor than you might think. The paint and bodywork are the most vulnerable here. And, you certainly don’t want that beautiful finish to fade or – worse – rust. The first sign of rust is a collection of small bubbles on the paintwork. This is bad news indeed, but you can easily avoid the problem. Rule number one, keep your luxury car in a dry garage. Pro tip: use a dehumidifier in the garage if you’re looking for the ultimate protection from moisture.

Replace the tyres regularly

When the tyres on your car run down, it has a phenomenal impact on the entire car. Low tyre pressure puts extra strain on the engine. It slows down your steering response, and ruins the handling of your perfect car. The same is true when your tyre tread wears down. It doesn’t take long to lose grip and drivability. With that in mind, make a habit of replacing your tyres on a regular basis. The Dunlop Sport BluResponse is optimized for speed, so it’s a good place to start your search. Remember, your luxury car deserves the best.

Start the car regularly

This might seem like strange advice to some of you, but a lot of classic owners don’t actually drive their cars. They simply show them off, and keep them parked in the garage. We’d much rather throw them around a track or take a leisurely drive along the coast ride. But, each to their own. If you are the type to keep your pride and joy locked up, make sure you still give the engine a test once a week. Just to keep things ticking over, and make sure it’s all in running order. If you do leave it unstarted for a long time, be sure to disconnect the battery.

Get the car checked by the pro

Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for self-maintenance. In fact, it’s your job to keep the fluids topped up, and the tyres in check. However, don’t forget to take the car in for a full service too. The experts will spot any niggling issues that you missed, and give things a thorough once-over. When it comes to luxury and classic cars, you can’t take the chance.

That’s all for today, folks. Check back soon for more luxury car tips and tricks.
