Battery Charger

Has anyone invested in a Battery Charger yet? I do mainly short journeys so thought it might be a wise precaution in this cold weather although I have only had the car for about 5 months. Honest John recommends the CTEK MXS 5.0 Fully Automatic Battery Charger which at around £66 is a bit pricey. Has...

Faraday bags - warning.

I took advice and bought a Faraday bag to contain keys for my push button start R line after parking. However, the other day with my car keys sealed in this bag the car door opened easily and much to my surprise. So be warned, these Faraday bags are not foolproof!
