You don’t have to be an expert to spot variations in colour or matte areas in the paintwork. These often point to makeshift repair jobs covering hidden damages. If you want to play it safe, you can check old cars with a magnet. If the magnet doesn’t stick to the paint, there is more filler than metal underneath.
Shiny drops on the engine, gearbox, or under the car can be a sign of defective seals or worse. There should also be no leakage from the tubes. Oil leaks can often result in serious engine damage.
Tyres are the only point of contact between a vehicle and the road below, and are thus one of the most important components. When checking a vehicle, you should look at the condition of the tyres. If they are more than eight years old (the production date can be read off the so-called DOT mark on the side of the tyre), or if the tread depth is less than 1.6 mm, they must be replaced. If the tyres show uneven wear, the car may be out of alignment.
Even if the vehicle passes the initial visual inspection, it is essential to take it for a test drive, as this is the only way to get a real feel for how the car behaves on the road. If the engine struggles to start or rattles during a cold start, this can point to defects. While driving, the steering, clutch and gearstick must all be easy to operate. The brakes are also important. You should only test the brakes on empty sections of road. If you brake fully, you can also check the ABS; if the wheels block or if the car does not stay in lane, something is wrong. In addition, the brake pedal should not reach all the way to the floor, as this can point to a problem with the brake cylinder.
If the car needs spare parts or new tyres, however, it doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive. Mytyres.co.uk supplies a wide range of car, truck and custom tyres, as well as competitively priced car spare parts and accessories, including engine oil and brake linings. If you don’t fancy getting out the car jack after buying new tyres, simply get them delivered directly to one of our many fitting partners and leave it to the experts.

The Geneva Association: Life Insurers Should Prepare for Implications of Genetics in Highly Fragmented Regulatory Landscape25.9.2017 12:00 | Pressemelding
The Geneva Association, the leading international think tank of the insurance industry, has released the research paper Genetics and Life Insurance: A view into the microscope of regulation, in which it reviews key aspects of the use of genetic information in life insurance. The use of genetic information for life, disability, critical illness and long-term care insurance is likely to increase in spite of a highly fragmented regulatory environment. The growing availability of genetic testing at ever lower prices is already giving insureds the option to purchase online “direct-to-consumer” tests. One of the questions raised is whether policyholders should be required to share their genetic information with life insurers. The paper focuses specifically on the regulatory implications of genetic testing. Ronald Klein, Director of The Geneva Association’s Global Ageing res
