If Santa gets stuck down the chimney this Christmas, it will more likely be due to a bulging sack of presents for Vauxhall owners than any excess of mince pies or tipple of sherry.
The timely launch of a new range of stylish accessories from Irmscher and Vauxhall means that there are more gift ideas to suit fans of the griffin brand and other makes than ever before.
Subtly sporting the griffin logo, many of these accessories are beautifully finished in aluminium or stainless steel to reflect current styling trends and lifestyles. From pens, clocks and other desk top aids to interior trim, sports mirrors and chrome/carbon effect fuel flaps, there are Christmas presents to suit all tastes and pockets.
For the Nova or Corsa custom car enthusiast, what about aluminium valve caps to set off those sparkling alloy wheels. Featuring the Irmscher ‘I’ logo, these retail at £16 for a set of four. Or a pair of aluminium door lock buttons priced at just £23.
Practical all year round for hot or cold drinks, a stainless steel thermos flask costing £18 could make the ideal gift for any motorist, while stocking fillers range from a stainless steel tool set with adjustable spanner at £22 and lightweight torch/penknife set at £32 to a digital stopwatch for motor racing fans, priced at £14.
For Astra owners there are special effect gear knobs and handbrake grips at £55 or a set of aluminium pedals at £63. And if your partner really deserves the best, a pair of streamlined sports door mirrors, electrically heated and adjustable, will add even more style to the Astra Coupé and Convertible. They are priced at £548 including painting and fitting.
On the practical front there are a host of useful gifts to make motoring more enjoyable, including a removable storage box for 12 CDs at £15, rear window sunblind for the Zafira priced at £49 and a steering wheel security clamp for the new Vectra at £49.
Sonax car care products also make ideal stocking fillers for all motorists. Developed in conjunction with Vauxhall, the range features air fresheners, polishes, upholstery cleaner, lock de-icer and much more. A pack of Sonax winter car care aids costs £9 and a wheel care pack £17.
