Filling your tyres with Nitrogen can save you in the long run.

The team at Mag & Turbo Nelson in the top end of Vanguard Street haved a great new service on offer. Nitrogen filling your tyres is something that racing teams have been doing for a while now. They do this due to seeing the rewards through the consistency gained in performance and speed via a much more stable gas inflating the tyre and maintaining the primary contact of your vehicle to the road. Now you can access this great technology in your vehicle as wheel, for the low cost of just $5.00 per tyre.

Come and meet the new Honda Civic

Written by BMG Media.

The all new 10th Generation 2016 Honda Civic is almost here at the Achilles Ave Showroom. This is big news, it is a huge leap in styling for this iconic car that has been making waves around the globe as it is launched.

In this weeks Motoring Plus Nelson Mail Lift Out we figured we may as well put the old up against the new.
We have recently traded an excellent condition 2007 Honda Civic sedan, which is our current Bowater Honda "Car of the Week" - if you head to the main Bowater Honda page (click here) you can see the video and click through to find out more.

Kiwi flier Hayden Paddon on podium in Poland with Hyundai in latest WRC round.

Written by Media Manager.

Hayden Paddon and John Kennard have secured third place at Rally Poland in their new generation Hyundai i20 World Rally Car.

Third place in Poland represents the third podium finish in the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship for the New Zealanders who finished second in Sweden and won outright in Argentina. The result moves Paddon into third place in the WRC drivers' championship and strengthens Hyundai Motorsport's second place in the manufacturers' standings.

"It obviously got pretty close there at the end," Paddon added referring to Hyundai Motorsport team-mate Thierry Neuville finishing a mere 0.8 seconds behind in fourth. "Our objective today was to secure third position rather than push for second, so we wanted to be relaxed. I think we probably eased off too much. Third is a great result, irrespective of how close it was - just 0.8 seconds!"

"We're really happy to come home with a podium," said Paddon who finished just 2.3 seconds behind Ott Tanak.

The seventh WRC round of the year concluded with a wet and slippery morning of action on Sunday, in contrast to the warm, sunny summer conditions of the previous three days.
"They were very, very tricky conditions and it was very hard to judge your speed," Paddon said, having set the fifth quickest time in all four Sunday stages. "The rain made the stages very slippery and overall today was tricky, having to try and control the position, but in the end we got good points and got the result."

Are you ready to rumble? The Fight for Victory gets underway at Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu and your invited.

Written by Media Manager.

fight 4 victory

This November 5th will see the Trafalgar Centre rumbling to the familiar sound of excitement as the 3rd round of the Victory Boxing annual Fundraiser gets underway.

Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu have stood behind this awesome community event since the start, when our very own Chris Bowater, CEO of Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu, stepped into the ring with the then Mayor of Nelson, Aldo Miccio. It was an inspirational fight and much sweat was left on the canvas as these two stepped up and gave it all that they had.

It was only fitting then that Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu host the launch event for Victory Boxing's Fight for Victory 3 at their central city showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy St on Friday 8th July from 5:30 - 7:30pm.
