Bowater Honda helps out. Car maintenance skills welcomed by refugees

Horrible weather last Saturday did little to dent the enthusiasm of 16 former refugees who attended a 90-minute car maintenance course organised especially for them at Bowater Honda.

The session covering the basics, including changing a tyre, was organised by Nelson Multi Cultural Council Ignite worker Dev Mehta and run by Bowater Honda automotive technician Martin Stevenson.

The former refugees from Bhutan and Burma gave the session top marks.

Bharat Timsina said by learning some simple skills, the men could save money.
‘‘Most of the people here don’t even know how to change the water or oil, to be honest and they have to pay for it,’’ he said.

Ngun uk Thrang said it was a very good idea.
‘‘There are lots of things I want to learn. I want to learn everything,’’ he said.

Help out your local Bowling Club when you buy with Bowater Hyundai

Hyundai New Zealand have a great relationship with the country's bowling clubs. They have been actively supporting the national administrative arm with sponsored vehicles and the such.

Part of this arrangement is to continue the support onto a local level, and help out the local Nelson Bowling Clubs. For every Hyundai sold to a local bowling club member, new or used, Bowater Hyundai donates $250 to that club as a thank you.

Lexus stuns with next generation LF-LC hybrid supercar

Lexus has lifted the covers on the second version of its LF-LC sports coupe concept at the Sydney Motor Show and hinted that it may go into production in some form.

The car, finished in a stunning Opal Blue - to match the natural base colour of the Australian gemstone, updates the first concept, revealed at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

Lexus is using many of the lessons learnt in its high-tech LFA supercar's construction, particularly merging carbon fibre and alloys to create a strong but extremely light body, and as we all know with our experience with the amazing Toyota 86, light kerbweight equals superb handling and performance.

It also features the next-generation of its Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain, imaginatively named Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, but making up for it with a smaller high-energy battery pack that helps combines with petrol power to make 372kW, and 500bhp, that's 60bhp more than the LS600h, making it the most powerful Lexus Hybrid in existance.
