Easy Oil Change Printer Friendly Version
One of my pet peeves in changing oil is that if you aren't careful, warm (if not hot) oil will run all over your hands. Further, almost always, I lose the bolt in the bottom of the oil bucket.
Here's my idea. Cars come equipped with the oil pan bolt... the bolt is removed... BUT NOTHING COMES OUT YET! Why? Because there is another step.
The oil changer then takes a wrench, after removing the bolt, and turns a nut (or for that matter, uses his hand to lift a lever, turn a knob, etc.), and THEN the oil comes out.
This gives double protection against a leak... and it makes oil changes much cleaner.
Reward: A Rolls Royce equipped thusly--ha!

Braking Indicator Printer Friendly Version
Has this been done? Seems like a pretty obvious idea so I guess it has, but been thinking of this for years and never seen it yet. Seems like a real good usp for a SAAB or Volvo. A light which is off the shelf to buy, battery powered, retails for around £30 and without tampering with the cars machanics at all will alert drivers behind of the proportional amount of breaking and de-acceleration. Perhaps a system of LED'S or amount of light intensity.
Any comments??

Car tags that light just like store signs, connected to the electric system of the car. They can be any color.
