A New Look For The Industry’s Original Lighting Brand

Boost Your Winter Sales With A New Look From the UK’s Original Vehicle Lighting Brand

When selling online or in a retail environment brand recognition is everything. Recognition leads to a level of trust in a brand, and it is this that breaks down many of the obstacles that a customer must overcome in order to make the purchase decision.

When customers recognise a brand they trust easier and leapfrog up the ladder of loyalty. This is why established brands perform so well in digital and physical retail environments. Customers are faced with a sea of choice but they are more likely to opt for a brand that they recognise if it sits at a price that they are prepared to pay.

Without doubt this is exactly why the Lucas brand performs so well for retail businesses.

Established in 1872, the same year that the first petrol engine was patented; Lucas has had a profound impact throughout the history of vehicle lighting. It has been an integral part of our automotive industry, and for decades it supplied original equipment components to almost all vehicles produced in the UK.

Today the Lucas brand is a champion of the aftermarket, offering a significantly lower price than its OE counterparts yet retaining recognition for its OE heritage. In fact a recent poll by the brand’s owners showed Lucas brand recognition was on a level with some of the biggest OE names in the world.

Now with a fresh new image, fitting for such an iconic brand; The Lucas Vision range is set to light up the aftermarket!

Vehicle Profile: Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost – 120/125/140PS 2012>

Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost

The Ford Focus mid-cycle facelift (Mk 3.5) features a raft of changes made to both the exterior, interior and engine line up.

Revisions made to the body were thinner and sharper headlights, a new trapezoidal grille, giving the front more sporting intent than the previous model. The new front end is similar to that of the 2014 Mondeo as well as the face-lifted 2013 Fiesta.

Mechanical improvements to the face-lifted Ford Focus are chassis revisions to all versions, to make the car more planted on the road, and the steering is also sharper than the pre-facelift model, while also offering greater feedback for greater driving pleasure and fun, which has been the trademark of the Focus since it launched back in 1998.

The 1.0 litre EcoBoost proved incredibly popular. The award-winning three-cylinder engine is produced in two variants, with 100 and 125 hp (75–93 kW) and 138 bhp (103 kW; 140 PS).

Introducing DISA Valves

DISA Valves are Air Intake Control Valves introduced by BMW to improve performance by controlling the path or air as it flows through the engine.

The name stems from the German ‘Differenzierte Sauganlage’ or Differentiated intake system in English. We will be posting a full TechASSIST bulletin to cover them in more detail soon.

EE4289 and EE4290 replace upper and lower DISA valves found on BMW engines spanning as far back as 2004. Like any electronically operated valve, these parts often fail with age and usage so are sure to continue to increase in demand.

Replacemnt is essential as failed valves have been known to spew plastic parts into the engine with causing serious damage.
