Hofmann 3D Wheel Alignment Analyser

The very latest technology.

Four wheel geometry test including minor adjustments with full printout for cars and light commercials - Internet special one axle adjustment is £52.88 or two axle adjustment is £105.75 *

Westerleigh Car Centre have the very latest Hofmann 3D Wheel Alignment Analyser

The 3D geo-aligner series use the latest camera and computer technologies which have the added benefit of high accuracy and impressive speed. This is a PC based computer which offers 3D technology,this carries out a number of tests on all the angles off the four wheels.During 3D measurement the cameras detect the target positions in the three-dimensional space.

We are able to show you the before and after adjustment readings on a printout, this also shows you the specifications the vehicle should be at.

Benefits from your vehicle geometry being correct are as follows:

Far superior road handling

Better tyre wear and suspension life

Far better fuel consumption.

This is a must for modern day cars and four wheel drive vehicles we recommend this test is carried out once a year.

If your wheels are not aligned correctly you may experience: uneven or rapid tyre wear, drifting away from a straight line or a steering wheel that is not at the 12 o’clock position when driving straight.

We have the very latest four wheel geometry unit to adjust your vehicles wheels to the correct specification.

This will also print out the results after your vehicle test has been carried out.

Electric Cars the facts that the public don't know

Cobalt supplies
However, a recent report suggested that the UK’s electric cars will need twice the world’s supply of cobalt.

UK demand for EV batteries will require almost the total amount of neodymium produced globally each year, three quarter’s of the world’s lithium, and “at least half” of the world’s copper.

Materials necessary to replace the two billion cars in the world would require four times the UK’s total annual electrical output.

But why does need a team of scientists to raise the red flag?

In 2013 it was reported that the UK very nearly suffered a national black-out, with just a four per cent reserve of electricity, and the National Grid urged businesses to limit their electricity needs.

Enappsys, which monitors wholesale electricity market data, suggest that the grid had an even more difficult job keeping the lights on last year, when it took new emergency measures to increase supplies with electricity sourced from abroad.

So, my first question is where does the future EV electricity supply come from?

And, what we do with the end of life batteries?

The European Union and China has already introduced regulations which make vehicle manufacturers responsible for recycling batteries.

There is still a question, however, over whether or not manufacturers will use recycled materials due to liability fears.

Many tyre manufacturers, for example, are still reluctant to use recycled rubber.

So, what do we do with these discarded batteries?

For me, these two questions need to be answered before I wholeheartedly embrace EVs as the long term future of cars.

I think instead of totalling relying on electric which the UK couldn’t sustain, they should concentrate on improving self charging hybrids. O% emissions and no drain on the National Grid. Best of both worlds and achievable.

Electric was OK for milk carts, the emissions from petrol vehicles seems to be falling with stop start helping.
