The Road Angel brand is making a comeback with a new product range. The mainstay is the Road Angel Pure Speed Camera Detector, helping boost awareness as you drive. Capable of providing fixed and mobile camera alerts, it also boasts laser gun detection and warnings for schools and accident black spots. It has been designed from the ground up to improve safety and help keep your licence unblemished. Its compact new design features a 2.4-inch TFT display that can be read in sunlight and easily understood colour-coded signals, as well as having touch-sensitive buttons.
Preventative bodywork treatments that stave off dirt and dust are all the rage, and CarPlan No1 Super Gloss is one of the latest paint sealants to hit the shelves. Apply the spray after you’ve given your vehicle a shampoo, buff it off, and its patented formula is designed to repel water and contaminants for up to a year. It’s also affordable, with CarPlan stating that one bottle provides enough coverage for nine small cars, seven saloons or crossovers and five large SUVs, motorhomes or caravans. The kit includes a 600ml bottle, microfibre cloth and applicator pad.
A torch is an essential for every glovebox, and the British GPDesign PR52 makes an ideal companion. Made from durable aircraft grade aluminium, it’s tough enough to withstand drops and knocks, while also being water resistant to shrug off downpours. Its beam can be focused with one hand and it features three brightness modes (22 to 450 lumen) and a strobe that’s ideal for warning other road users of your presence. We particularly like the fact it has a micro-USB rechargeable battery, so you can keep it topped up in the car or via a power bank, and on its dimmest setting battery life is a claimed 43 hours.
A replacement panel air filter is one of the simplest and most discreet modifications for any car, allowing the engine to breathe more freely. Especially in air-hungry turbocharged vehicles, increased airflow can net impressive gains of around 10 to 15bhp. That’s the claim of Coventry-based manufacturer ITG, who has a new lightweight Profilter range now available for a wide range of diesel models, boasting polyester foam technology developed from experience supplying F1, BTCC and WRC racing teams.
