For sports car owners, taking care of your car is top priority. Your beautiful machine deserves the best care in the world and you intend to follow through with it. You wash and wax your car consistently. Polish the rims to keep them shimmering. Clean out and examine everything under the hood on a regular basis.
Many sports car owners use their sports car as a secondary vehicle, usually for pleasurable trips as opposed to the everyday commute. Which is totally understandable. No one wants to get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic while cruising in a Maserati. The problem with this, is that you often treat this car to much less maintenance than it actually needs. Oil is the obvious area of neglect but we’ll assume that you are a smarter car owner than that.
So while your oil might be changed frequently, one area that goes neglected is the coolant. Your engine produces a lot of heat which causes the air around it to heat up as well. We’ve all seen the stranded driver with a smoking hood from all of the heat. Don’t be that driver. Water runs around your engine to help cool it off but in extreme temperatures, coolant is a saving grace.
One thing that sports car owners often neglect is the seats in their cars. We’re not talking about keeping them clean or enforcing a harsh “no-food rule”. We’re talking about actually protecting your car seat with a car seat cover. These neoprene wonders help to protect your car seat from the organic material you aren’t aware. Whether that be some of the salt water from the ocean or your own sweat on a hot summer day. Without a car seat cover, your car seats absorb all of that moisture.
Additionally, without a cover, your car seat is subjected to the sun’s UV rays which can have damaging affects to the material, much like your skin. Leather seats can dry out and crack whereas fabric seats can fade and degrade.
Let’s face it, if you are a sports car owner you probably brake pretty hard sometimes. All of that braking eats away at your brake pads, hence the squealing noise you hear when coming up on a last second red light. These pads are the buffer between the caliper, which closes on a rote or disc, and the rotor. When those pads wear down, that buffer is eliminated meaning you have some metal on metal friction. When this happens the brakes become less effective and can damage the rotor. The best thing to do is listen to your vehicle and understand that the seemingly satisfying squeel is actually a cry for new brake pads.
