A Good Auto Sound System is a Requirement not a Luxury


How do you decide which auto sound system is best for you? This is a question that many consumers ask in the U. S. each and every day. The truth is that only you can decide what kind of sound you find enjoyable and what you are seeking in the sound system you will ultimately purchase. A good sound system will greatly improve how you feel about not only the vehicle you drive but also your disposition after your daily commute. It may seem like such a small thing, the changing of a sound system, but it does seem to have such a profound impact on how we start our days. Of course we all know that getting your day off to a good start sets the tone for the entire day and if that day is Monday it sets the tone for not only the day ahead but also the week to come.

Music affects almost every aspect of our lives. Most of us do not realize the impact that music has on our day-to-day lives and it is quite difficult because our world seems to be filled with it. It is much easier however, to explain the difference a good sound system makes. It's funny, I find myself in a hurry to get out of stores that have lousy sound systems and speakers that dribble out little more than static while I can shop for hours in a store that has tasteful music playing in the background over a good sound system. I prefer the volume lower and the music playing in the background rather than being the center of my attention.

Most of us find that soft music playing in the background is rather unobtrusive and allows us to get along with our thoughts and the mission at hand while loud music blaring over antiquated speakers does a great deal to disrupt our thought processes which will only serve to send us along to the next errand on our list. If you'll notice it seems that clerks in the stores where the loud music blares along are often not as even tempered as those in stores that play music at respectful volumes and have very well kept sound systems. I think I would be cranky too after listening to music in a manner that music wasn't meant to be heard.

I'm not a music snob by any means; I simply enjoy listening to music for the sake of actually hearing the music. Loud music is good sometimes but not when I have other things on my mind. I prefer that music remain in the background when I'm running about taking care of errands, even in the car. The hallmark of a good auto sound system is that it sounds good even at low volumes. This means you can enjoy music in the background, hum along, or simply ignore the music in favor of the action taking place on the road.

The point I'm trying to make is that even though you may not realize the impact that a good auto sound system has on music immediately, you will definitely feel the difference it makes over time. The better the sound system, the better the sound and music is after all, sound.

If you are a true lover of music and spend a great deal of your week or even any given day in your vehicle, doesn't it make sense to invest heavily in your auto sound system? I know for me that particular decision is a no brainer. I love music and it is an important part of not only my life but also the lives of my children. As a result we spend a lot of time listening to the radio in our SUV and singing along. Even when we aren't listening to music, I enjoy listening talk radio and the news on NPR. These things are an important part of my day and I really enjoy all that each and every one adds to my life. Because of that, I find my investment in a good auto sound system to be a requirement rather than a luxury.


2011 Hyundai Equus



Equus will Showcase Hyundai's Approach toward Intelligent Luxury

NEW YORK, April. 1, 2010 – Hyundai aims to break down the barriers of owning a luxury car with the introduction of its all-new flagship, the 2011 Equus. Equus will compete with the best luxury sedans in the world on all levels including amenities, performance, advanced technologies, design and ownership experience when it arrives at select Hyundai dealerships late this summer.

"Equus takes Hyundai's formula for intelligent luxury to a new level," said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. "We've applied the lessons in engineering excellence we've learned with Genesis to the Equus, while adding a new level of customer experience that will further differentiate our take on luxury from the traditional premium brands." Equus broadens Hyundai's lineup of premium vehicles and like Genesis, is built on Hyundai's world-class rear-wheel-drive architecture. It is powered by the award-winning 4.6-liter Tau® V8. The Tau inside the Equus will produce an estimated 385 horsepower using premium fuel and 378 horsepower using regular fuel. With technology rivaling more expensive luxury sedans, Equus showcases features such as a lane departure warning system, electronic air suspension, smart cruise control and a Lexicon® audio system. 

Infiniti QX56

The second-generation QX, part of the 70 percent new lineup Nissan's luxury division will have in the US this summer, has been ‘designed to offer a true five-star travel experience,' according to Infiniti. While that may well be true, the design did little to stir up desire amongst showgoers at the New York Auto Show's first press day.

Eschewing the previous Armada platform in favor of the Patrol platform, the already gargantuan SUV is now even larger than the outgoing model, measuring 5291mm long, 2029mm wide and 1920mm tall (36mm longer and 28mm wider but 96mm shorter). The new SUV is also more aerodynamic than its predecessor, achieving a 0.37Cd thanks to a new underbody spoiler at the front, a rear liftgate spoiler and redesigned mirrors.

Created at Nissan's Atsugi Design Center in Japan, the new design is meant to bring the SUV in line with other Infiniti models, unlike the outgoing Armada-based model. "You can see much more of a clear consistency with the M, FX and EX," Nissan Head of Design, Shiro Nakamura, told CDN.

Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M - Ferrari's Most Hardcore Convertible Ever



In Ferrari speak, the name 'Scuderia' is synonomous with the most hardcore streetable track supercars the Prancing Horse has to offer the public. Unveiled at the Formula 1 Constructor's World Championship, the Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M is the first convertible Ferrari to bear that name.

The Scuderia Spider is billed as the fastest convertible to come from Ferrari, ever. While the new Ferrari California will be released soon in an attempt to make Ferrari supercars accessible to more drivers, the expensive track-ready Scuderia Spider is for Ferrari customers who crave pure, unbridled speed.


Auto Accident - Are They Really Accident

This is a really important question as every 'accident' involves damage to one or more vehicles, and possibly injury to drivers and passengers. Each of these 'accidents' costs you money because, often, the rate of accidents in your area impacts your auto insurance premium.
Many times I have pondered the use of that word 'accident' when applied to the crazy driving that leads to accidents.
Just think for a moment about that articulated truck you saw lying on its side because it flipped over when the driver took the corner too fast. Or that SUV spinning on its roof on a totally straight piece of road. Or the young men in the sports car who ran straight into the back of a truck as they came hurtling over a hill too fast to stop or even take evasive measures.

Kia Optima


The new Kia Optima making its debut in New York is undoubtedly the star of the show. Pushing Kia's new design initiatives forward, the new sedan is a clear departure from the previous generation, continuing the design language first seen on the Soul and since evolved into the recently revealed Sportage. But while the Sportage's exterior was designed in Kia's California design studio and the interior was created in the automaker's European studio, the reverse is true for the Optima.
Longer, lower, wider and with a longer wheelbase than the model it will soon replace, the exterior design of the new car is a lesson in cautious elegance. At the front, an amplified version of the Korean automaker's defining grille - larger than on any other model in the Kia range - is outlined in chrome and features a piano black surround, an element repeated in the lower corners of the bumper around the foglamps and the fender vent. Pronounced hood creases running from between the headlamps and grille integrate neatly with the A-pillar, as on the Sportage.

Audi AO


The Audi A0 QS, Q stands for four-wheel drive and S for sports, has been specially designed for athletes and rich people to enhance their active lifestyles.

Rubber fabric has been used to make the doors, which greatly enhances the design and makes it possible to transform into transparent materials according to the rider’s need. Length of the compact car is 3400 mm, giving the users an ultimate driving convenience on busy urban roads and when parking.

Futuristic Nissan

The Nissan V2G concept vehicle has been designed to adopt with the electrified and ultra-efficient network of the nation’s highways called the ‘GRID’ for the year 2030. This car comprises a dynamic, low cost and quality construction V2G electric engine that is being expected to be the best selling vehicle of that time. The creative young minds of LA’s legendary automotive culture are highly potential considering its simple and user-friendly EV architecture. The organic shape along with great functionality is the key features that will keep the vehicle user segment intact.

Actros. BlueTec®. Advantages Actros. BlueTec®. Advantages


National incentives
The increasingly stringent emissions requirements in the European Union are being accompanied in many European towns and cities by increasing concern about fine particle emissions. For example local driving bans are under discussion in some European cities for vehicles not labelled as low-pollutant. Also under consideration are emissions-based road tolls not just for motorways but also also for trunk roads.

BlueTec® achieves significant reductions in emissions which can thus result in toll savings and exemption from driving bans. There are other financial benefits for BlueTec® customers too: in many European countries you can expect tax breaks, and in various European municipalities BlueTec® counts in your favour when tendering for a public contract.
The advantages in everyday use
In long-distance haulage fuel consumption makes up the lion’s share of the lifecycle costs. Here too the benefits of BlueTec® are exceptional. Modified engines make such efficient use of the fuel that they not only produce a higher output (depending on the engine variant) but also consume significantly less fuel. BlueTec® gets top marks on servicing intervals too: the technology is robust and low on maintenance. The impressive engines installed in the new Actros deliver increased pulling power and efficiency. With potential fuel savings of up to 6%.
Resale advantages
Europe’s legislation is becoming increasingly standardised, so demand for commercial vehicles that meet the new European emissions standards can only increase. With BlueTec®, you are investing in a technology that will have a good resale value even after several years.

Telligent® engine management system


The Telligent® engine management system is kept constantly up to date with all relevant engine data, including engine speed, load and temperature – in addition to other variables, such as air pressure and outside temperature. This enables it to calculate the correct fuel injection duration and timing for each cylinder according to the given situation every few milliseconds.

Regulating the engine in this way, the Telligent® engine management system ensures high output, low fuel consumption and low-emission combustion. In the unlikely event of a malfunction, this will be indicated in the display, allowing the driver to react accordingly.

Pininfarina BLUECAR

Pininfarina BLUECAR which will enter production in 2010 has been unveiled at Geneva Motor Show. This electric car is a result of a 50-50 joint venture between the Italian design house and Bollore.

Pininfarina BLUECAR is not just a concept and the production of this compact MPV will be around 60,000 units by 2015. Pininfarina BLUECAR has four seats and five doors which equipped with an automatic transmission.

With the LMP (Lithium Metal Polymer) batteries, Pininfarina BLUECAR has a range of 250 km and a lifespan of about 200,000 km. This car also equipped with a new tire design (developed in collaboration with Dunlop) that significantly reduces energy consumption.

Press Release
Pininfarina and Bollore set up a 50-50 joint venture at the beginning of 2008 with the purpose of designing, developing, manufacturing and distributing an electric car with revolutionary technical features and formal qualities. The Pininfarina BLUECAR, on show at the Geneva Motor Show on the Vehicules Electriques Pininfarina-Bollore stand, is therefore not a mere concept car but a forerunner of the vehicle which will go into production in Italy at Pininfarina starting from 2010 with the first units. Production on an industrial scale will take place between 2011 and 2017, with forecast output by 2015 being about 60,000.

The Pininfarina-Bollore electric car project, shown for the first time last October at the Paris Mondial de l’Automobile, has stirred up great interest from the sector as well as from the media and the public, proof that it is innovative and is moving in the right direction, well ahead of the times. With awareness of the need to act to protect the environment going global, and with the use of cars being more and more concentrated in towns and limited to daily mileages of less than 60 km, the car market is undergoing a cultural revolution that opens new and promising scenarios for hybrid or totally electric vehicles like the Pininfarina BLUECAR: recent studies have estimated that in the medium term 1.5-2 million electric vehicles will be introduced on the European market alone.

In this context the Pininfarina BLUECAR stands out from competitive proposals thanks to:
- its aesthetic excellence and the freshly original layout of a car born to be electric and not derived from a production car;
- astonishing performance guaranteed by Bollore technology.
