How Insurance Agents will need to Conduct Business in the Future in Order to Compete and Survive

I am often asked about my take on the future of the insurance industry.  The industry is not going anywhere, that is for certain.  However, I do expect to see a drop in the number of agencies, especially in the independent insurance agency sector, because many will not mold their business practices and processes in time to handle the changes that are taking place.  The competition will slowly eat away chunks of their business by simply implementing low-cost or even no cost initiatives, only because they had the foresight to do so.

DIY: Valentine 1 Radar Hardwire Install on BMW E93 Convertible Using a Wire Tap

Hardwiring your radar detector, in this case a Valentine 1 (commonly referred to as a v1), is a required mod on pretty much any car. It saves you from using one of your available cigarette lighter sockets, allows you to mount the radar high up on the windshield and most of all, it gets rid of that ugly power cord that gets in the way of so many things. To hardwire a radar simply means that you will use an alternate power source available in the vehicle allowing the radar to turn on and off with the ignition. The wiring is hidden for the most part and the radar can be mounted high up on the windshield for maximum performance.

DIY: Upgrade Lamborghini Murcielago with the LP640 or LP670 Taillight Conversion

In 2007, Lamborghini introduced some modest updates to the Murcielago line. Most of the significant changes were under the bonnet and interior, but slight changes were also made to the exterior. Of these, the most notable, in my opinion, is the replacing of the taillights with a new design. For someone who owns an older model Murcielago, this was an upgrade I was very interested in.

How to Fix (DIY): Lamborghini Murcielago Window Fell Off of its Rail/Track

If you own a Lamborghini Murcielago, you probably know that you shouldn’t open or close your doors with the windows down, especially if the window is not all the way down. You should also know that you shouldn’t slam the doors, ever. You have to be patient with them and ideally, only operate them with the windows up all the way. Otherwise, you risk the windows falling off their tracks, leaving the power window inoperable. Sadly, this can easily be caused by others so it’s important you warn anyone who is opening or closing your door to do so gently. This is a common issue with Murcis so if it happens to you, don’t worry; there’s a fix for it and, if you put in the time, you can do it yourself in no time.
