Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax outshines it's competition

Stocked Bilt Hamber products win Auto-Express product tests

Our friends at Bilt Hamber had reason to celebrate after a selection of their products WON recent tests carried out were by Auto-Express magazine. Amongst the test was Bilt Hamber recently released Double Speed-Wax which Auto Express awarded 5 out 5 and gave the following verdict:

“Bilt-Hamber says new wax is its best ever, and it led our beading tests throughout, only matched by Fusso. The speed at which it shifted water was barely diminished over our six-week test. Despite the performance, double speed-wax is great value as you don’t use much and the price includes sponge applicator and microfibre cloth.”

In the same issue other Bilt Hamber products were tested and won, these include:

Bilt Hamber Auto-Wheel – Won Best Wheel Cleaner 2015
Bilt Hamber Auto-Wash – Won Best Car Shampoo 2015
Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax – Won Best Car Wax 2015

Opie Oils Engine Oil Service Pack look up is HERE!

Good news,

Opie Oils now offer an online oil recommendation tool for standard cars where you can find the correct Engine Oil & Filter Service Kits, Engine Oil only service kits and 1 litre Engine Oil Top Up Kits for your car.

For nearly 10 years Opie Oils have been offering oil recommendations and advice on over 1,000 forums and we have now applied our invaluable knowledge to our online recommendation tool. Unlike the majority of our competitors our lookup tool gives a recommendation that provides you with the correct specification oil and amount for a full change plus an option for OEM quality oil filter too!

There are three types of look up you can select:

– Car Service Kit – Engine Oil & Filter

We match our service kit engine oil with manufacturer specifications and fill volumes, and our OEM quality oil filters with an extensive fitment database to ensure you get exactly what you need to service your vehicle. Service kits may sometimes have a little more oil than the fill quantity – ideal for topping up. Comes with a free disposable filling kit with disposable funnel and gloves, dipstick wipe and hand wipe.

– Car Engine Oil (Without OEM Oil Filter)

If you’re looking for the correct specification and amount of engine oil for servicing your vehicle but already have the oil filter then this is for you. These recommendations sometimes have a little more oil than the fill quantity which is ideal for topping up. Again this option comes with a disposable filling kit with disposable funnel and gloves, dipstick wipe and hand wipe.

– Car Top Up Kit – 1 Litre of Engine Oil

Just need a 1 litre top up? Then use this option to get the correct viscosity and specification. With the addition of our disposable top up kit it makes topping up a quick and easy job.

To get your recommendation it’s simple. Select the type of look up you require and then enter your vehicle information. You will then be presented with the correct products for your car with prices and option to add to basket.

In the future we plan on adding additional products to our lookup tool, this includes spark & glow plugs, brake parts, wiper blades and much, much more! We will keep you all updated….
