I was really chuffed with buying our Brazi bay, and enjoyed the classic looks over our previous VW California, however it soon became apparent that my good lady would struggle to share the driving (she is teetotal) on the way back from socials!!

Having carried out minimal research all roads seemed to lead to Lite steer in Sussex. Following a chat with Neil I realised that this was a company that had a great solution at a realistic price point.

Rosie was ready for collection last week, however today was the soonest I could get a lift over to Burwash Common.

Not only had I received the electric power steering unit, but also a new steering box and a new engine battery.

Neil encouraged me to take it out for a test run to check I was happy, but just manoeuvring around their car park using one finger I was instantly grinning and knew I had made the right decision.

A 50+ mile journey home, followed by a spin around the block driven by SWMBO confirmed it was money well spent!

Seriously this is a game changer Cool

Totally agree. It’s a brilliant piece of engineering that makes a huge difference to the driving experience. Enjoy!

For safety and security
My husband has altered our steering. When parked we can take the steering wheel off.
He has also installed fuel cut off’s
And now he has just made it that we can cut off the power to the battery

During lockdown he has been tinkering with something to lock the clutch and steering
Some kind of lock frame
