Get Yourself A Car That Will Survive The Winter

 

 

The thought of getting a new car is so exciting to the majority of us. It’s like getting a new toy that we never have to give back, will probably not break on us for the next couple of years, and allows us to have some new fun. It’s like getting a new phone, or buying a new house, the excitement is up there, and for some of you will definitely be a lot higher. Because for someone who is into their cars so much, a decision like this does not come lightly. You will no doubt be in love with the car that you have now, doing anything you can to keep it on the road if it’s packing up on you. Which every car eventually will do after many years of having an owner, especially one with bad driving habits. So you have to ask yourself, is your car going to make it through the winter, or is it time to think about bagging yourself a new one. If you know it’s time for a new one, we’ll show you how to make sure you get one that’ll last the winter, as well as the next few years with you!

 

 

One You Trust, From Somewhere You Trust

 

Getting a car that you trust is just so important. The more time you spend around cars, from all different manufacturers and ages, you realise that cars are just not that reliable, and nor are the people selling them to you. Unless you really know what you’re looking for, cars can be an absolute nightmare to buy. So first, go for a dealership that you know has a good track record with selling reliable cars, such as LMC cars. All it takes is one reliable dealership, and you have a place to buy your cars from for life. It’s not always ideal to go straight to the manufacturers themselves, because the money they charge is so much higher, and you can often find a better deal elsewhere.

 

The Best Winter Cars

 

Winter cars are not your average car. Some cars just aren’t made for the harsh weather, such as BMW’s due to their rear wheel drive, and older cars, because they’re more likely to pack up working during the harsh months. So the best car to have in the winter, is a 4×4, and they’re one of the best during the other months of the year as well. It doesn’t have to be a brand new one, and it doesn’t have to be an expensive Range Rover. There are so many affordable 4×4’s that you could look into, ones that we know will be suitable for the harsh weather. All you have to do is get searching through dealerships.

 

Keeping Up The Maintenance 

 

Maintenance of your car is so important. The more you focus on the maintenance of the car, weekly, the longer it’ll last for you. This involves making sure that there’s the right mix of screenwash and water in your car, the oil level is right, and the tyre pressure is right. It’s far more dangerous going out in the ice, and perhaps even snow when it comes.

Love Netflix as much as we do? Well here’s some Netflix Tips to make your experience even better! (All the following steps take place within Netflix’s app)

Netflix Tips!

#1 Download even better looking content

If you head on over to App Settings (Within Netflix) > Video Quality > Higher all of your downloaded content visuals will be improved ten fold! However, these videos will take up more space on your hard drive and will hit the data allowance a little more. Though we think that that’s a great trade off!

How to Stop Your Pictures from Being Hacked from iCloud

Although having your personal photos shared on the Internet is highly unlikely, unless you’re famous, we don’t do ourselves any favours by syncing private pictures to online drives without thinking about it, and having passwords that anyone could guess after a few goes.

Make sure your iPhone isn’t uploading your photos to iCloud

The camera roll on your phone physically stores the photos you’ve taken on your device.

If Photo Stream is enabled, there will be another album in the Photos section, called My Photo Stream.

The photos in the My Photo Stream album are stored on Apple’s iCloud serves, with the tech giant keeping all the images you’ve taken in the last 30 days.

This is useful for accessing photos on other devices, or having automatic backups if you lose your phone – but it also makes it easier to have hackers access and leak your personal images.

To disable Photo Stream, tap Settings, then click on your Apple ID. Go to iCloud, tap Photos, then switch off the My Photo Stream feature.

Have a strong, unique password

Many people will use the same password for multiple accounts – so if you’re using ‘password123’ to log into your Apple ID, Facebook, Twitter and Hotmail, a hacker will have access to all of these accounts by knowing a single password.

To change your Apple ID password, visit My Apple ID, sign in, then head to the Security section to change your password.

 

Use two-step authentication

Apple already offers this for iCloud users, and it’s also available on sites such as WordPress.

Every time you log into an account, a code will be sent to your phone – and this code changes after every login attempt.

In other words, a hacker would have to be in possession of your phone to get the code for your account right.

 

Use fake answers to security questions

If you have a public presence, with personal information such as your mother’s birthplace or favourite food easily accessible via Google search, or you’re being hacked by someone who can find out personal information another way, use random answers to security questions that they’d never guess.
