Skoda Octavia

The new Skoda Octavia for sale in Perth is a fantastic vehicle, but even the best models need a little tender loving care. Fortunately, there are some car hacks to enhance your ownership experience.

Keep Your Wheels Sparkling

Nothing compromises the aesthetics like dirty, scuffed wheels. Even if you are very careful and don’t clip any kerbs, it can be easy for dirt to accumulate making your wheels look grubby. You may even notice that it takes more and more scrubbing to get rid of brake dust. So, next time you clean your wheels, dry the alloys and spray a light coating of RP-7 or WD-40. This coating will protect the alloys as the hot brake dust is captured before it can stain the wheels. This will make it easier to wash your wheels in future and keep them sparkling clean.

Protect Your Octavia When Parking

Most modern garages are quite tight, so it is easy to find yourself inching along and still banging into the wall. This can create a real mess on your bumper, as it becomes dented and scratched. There are a number of hacks that can immediately eliminate this problem without it costing a fortune. Some homeowners fix pool noodles to the walls of their garage, but a more accurate way to gauge the distance of your garage only requires a tennis ball and some string. Put your Octavia in the correct in your garage so that you can mark out this position. Wrap the tennis ball with the string and knot it to keep it in place. Climb to the garage roof with a ladder and secure the other end of the string, so the ball drops and touches the middle of your windscreen. This will create a very visible marking so you know exactly where to stop, just be sure to use a soft ball or you could risk a cracked windscreen.

Clean Your Headlights

Headlight lenses can easily become misty and dull, compromising your visibility and safety. Fortunately, you don’t need to resort to expensive products, as you have a great cleaning solution inside your home; toothpaste. Toothpaste is mildly abrasive, so it can gently remove any build up of grime on your headlight lenses. Use circular motions and a small amount of toothpaste on a soft cloth around all areas of the lens. Use a damp cloth to remove any remaining traces, and you should find your headlights are clearer and brighter.
