2009 BMW 7 Series

Because of the high security standards that the modern world is so addicted, we need to spy a little to find out about the new 7 Series from BMW. So a few little details remains undiscovered at lest about the exterior, because the car was captured in the pictures and it reveal to us the exterior. So, the lights are a concept from the most controverts CS concept. The lights are entire made of led and we find a new iDrive system.

The bigger differences from his previous model can be observed at the body in the front and back side, there the day lights creates a new look for the future generation that we are going to see from the BMW factories. The new approach respect the tradition in BMW to make a total change in stile and it creates an image, very high evolved given up the old design that was very criticized for the peaceful and more calm image.

The new BMW use a twin-turbo V8 of 4.4 liters that entered for the first time in the component of the new X6, and the top version 760i is tooled up with the familiarly V12 of 6.0 liters. To make a difference between the two versions the V6 version will have pipes on the exhaust system meanwhile the V12 will have 4 pipes on the exhaust system.

Both of the version is equipped with an automatically transmission in 8 steps. In spite the fact that the new model has more steps in the gear box then his predecessor the new transmission does not need more space then the one in 6 steps and more then this it is more easy to use and more efficient. With a gear box that has more gears will help in the amount of gas consumption, with 6 percent less than its previous model. About the new transmissions roomers are that is very versatile and they will use it in the next project of the BMW brand.

On the option list of the new BMW 7 series we will find a guidance system that it will be put on to the wheels, and in a few years this system will be combined with 4×4 traction.

The new night-vision assures the safety of the pedestrians; it is capable of detecting the presents of humans on the road and then signals in the dashboard. Also the system can signal if the people are on the road or on the side way to prevent the accidents that could happen.

The system is so advanced, so it can reed the indicators with speed restriction and can signal to the driver in case if this one runs with a higher speed. The camera can also detect the fog or rain condition and can warn the driver not to go over a limit. Whit all the warnings the car does not the controls from the driver, but still remains a high performing warning system.

Transmission Mission - It’s all in the timing

You have to reach that right speed before you can quickly shift your gears. Timing is crucial in getting the most out of your car’s powerful engine. You have to know when to get the beast out of your monstrous engine, as well as, taming the beast.

Car Transmission

There are some ways to upgrade your transmission. You can choose from trusted transmission brands like Nissan, Mitsubishi, Tremec, and Honda. Honda makes different kinds of performance transmissions ranging from a basic one to custom made racing transmissions.

There are two types of transmissions: manual and automatic. Clutches are needed to engage or disengage a manual transmission, while with automatic transmissions torque converters take the place of clutches. Automatic transmissions are an advantage for racecars and cars with forced induction because even at a high rev, it can permit the car to stop. While on a stall, drivers then release the brakes for a super-charged launch.

Automatic Transmission

Computers paved the way for the emergence of semi-automatic transmissions which we can say, give racecar drivers the best of both worlds.

In choosing gearboxes, choose those that are made of hard and durable materials to avoid breakage. Low-ratio gearboxes are said to provide improved acceleration and better mileage.

Another gearbox option is the sequential gearbox. This type of manual transmission gives the race driver the advantage of fast shifting. You only have to push the shift stick up every time you want to change to a higher gear, or pull the shift down if you want to use a lower gear.

Performance shift kits are available to make your shifting experience smoother and quicker. These shifts are well balanced and precise. Most of these performance shift kits are short, but easy to install.

Get your car a gear knob that will match your steering wheel or the interiors of your car. Gear knobs come in leather, carbon fiber, or choose an illuminated gear knob if this suits your fancy.

Always have your transmission fluid changed whenever it’s due to keep you shifting gears smoothly. Use synthetic oil with higher quality to take on the added heat due to continuous shifting.

VW Passat Tuning

VW introduced the Passat back in 1973 which were initially offered as two and four door sedans as well as versions with three- and five-doors. These versions shared a common style care of Giorgetto Giugiaro, an Italian designer. From that time on, the VW Passat continues to earn raves as well as criticisms from automobile raters and users.

VW Passat Tuning

Facelift for Passat

Some mechanical changes and alterations on style can be made to give the VW Passat a fresher look. Give this a new set of car projector-optic headlights, tail lights, bumpers and the car would look much better than when you first bought it. Owners may also opt for front suspension with four links which take out torque steering. To help avoid traction loss when driving on slick surfaces, a Torsen AWD system can be utilized for this purpose. Power can be improved and turbo charged with diesel with a TDI engine which produces 135 PS. Best part about this engine is that it utilizes diesel for fuel economy and its ability to operate with biofuels, an inexpensive alternative to gas. This Torsen AWD system usually comes with the four wheel drive version..

Volkswagen Passat Tuning

Upgrade to Safety and Function

From the Torsen system, one may now opt for Haldex multi-plated clutch which is available when using a 4-wheel drive version. What this upgrade does to your car is improved fuel economy with spacious interior that allows for more room. Haldex helps you direct your power by letting your car act as any four-wheel drive until it starts detecting slippage. In which case, half of your power will be diverted to the axle which is opposite that of the transmission or engine. There are a lot of things you can do to make the VW Passat a class of its own. Who says a family car can’t look like a sports car?

Toyota Yaris Tuning

Toyota Yaris is one of the latest feature cars of the Toyota. It has gone to be so successful that production of this latest Toyota flagship model is still in its momentum. Sporting a hip and compact look, the Toyota Yaris is, after all, an incarnation of what most Toyota fans have been asking for from Toyota. A stylish, compact and efficient car is what you asked for - and Toyota Yaris is what you get.

Toyota Yaris is ideally tailored as a family sedan that can accommodate four passengers. Comfort is perhaps one of its best features. With features like satellite navigation system, touch screen operation, Bluetooth, USB connection and full in-car sound system, you will, no doubt, feel the comfort of driving in your Toyota Yaris. And it can be bought for a $11,000 retail price, if you look hard enough. Performance-wise, however, Toyota Yaris does not have much to be proud of. At 50 to 150 BHP, the Toyota Yaris is not exactly your favorite runner. That’s why Toyota Yaris tuning may be exactly what you need.

Toyota Yaris Tuning

Made of tensile steel, Toyota Yaris is rigid but lightweight - a feature you can take advantage of. Boosting your car engine’s with a supercharger may power up your engine’s efficiency and performance to as much as 30%. An ECU Tuning Chip may also do the trick. Be careful, though, because it’s no big secret that these procedures can be precarious.

Or you can use methods that will boost your Yaris’ performance, without handling its engine. The most popular choice is replacement of your tires with 15″ allow wheels. This will make your car a lot lighter, and therefore give less reason for your Yaris to run slow. There are also 18″ wheels, which you can use for traversing terrains. Tuning your Yaris by replacing the wheels can be a good option.

9 tips to keep your engine running smoothly

Tending to your car will enable your car to travel longer down the road and will give you a sense of pride when you are fixing your car. Auto owners need to pay more attention to their cars so the junkyards and the streets don’t get cluttered up. The more cars we can keep on the road, the cleaner the streets will be. Fixing your older car can be fun and exciting and will give you a greater sense of appreciation of the automobile. All of the parts can be found in the auto parts stores and if by chance you can’t find them there, you can always go online and find them.

Recent surveys show that 5 out of 10 accidents could have been diverted by just doing basic maintenance on your vehicle. Just by doing simple maintenance on your vehicle, you can extend the life of your car, helping with a healthier and stable environment.

Babe Standing next to a Mustang Engine

Tending to the upkeep of your engine can save you gas mileage and give you more of an understanding of the operation of your vehicle. If you know more about your car, when something goes wrong, you will be able to know what it is instead of taking it to the shop and spend extra money you don’t have. Tending to your car starts at the very beginning, from the first day you buy the car.

Basic maintenance starts with your basic tune-up. For that you need spark plugs, ignition wires, a distributer cap and a rotor. Here are a few tips to keep your car up and running longer.

  1. Change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Your engine will start make weird noises if the motor is not kept up. When doing the oil change, make sure you change the oil filter as well. It will do no good if you run clean oil through a dirty oil filter.
  2. Check the tires every month. By checking your tires it will make sure your alignment is not off causing uneven ware on your tires. Make sure the tires on your car are properly inflated. If the tires are under inflated or over inflated, that can lead to serious problems later down the road.
  3. Check all of the fluid levels. The fluids you will need to check will include the power steering, brake, antifreeze, washer solvent and the transmission fluid. these fluids are essential for the operation and the safe running of the vehicle.
  4. Inspect the muffler of the car when it is running to make sure that it has good air flow through it. If the muffler is plugged, make sure you replace it right away.
  5. Clean the battery posts and cables when necessary and analyze the connection points for corrosion. Check the battery fluids and make sure it has enough fluid except for batteries that are maintenance-free.
  6. Inspect engine belts for any knicks and tears. Make sure the belt is running on the right track. You don’t want to replace a belt or even worse, a water pump while you are sitting on the side of the road.
  7. Underneath the car, you will find some grease receptacles to grease the moving components such as the ball joints and the tie-rods. Poor maintenance of these parts can put your car right into the ditch or even worse cause an accident.
  8. Make sure all of your headlights and taillights work. It is just a simple bulb exchange from a bad bulb to a good one. Check all of the lights on your car to see if they all work, if they don’t, replace them as soon as you can.
  9. Check and see if your wipers work. If the do, and wipe the windshield clean, you have nothing to worry about. If you turn your wipers on and you have streaks on the windshield, replace the wipers when you get a change. You need to see when you are out driving on the road.

nfiniti is one of the few brands that comes from Japan and is a Luxury automobile maker – they are actually a subdivision of – well can you guess – Nissan! It serves to be the one-of-a-few car brands that has a parent corporation in Japan and has been following the Honda – Acura model with its eye on the U.S. Luxury Car market in the United States. The Infiniti brand was founded in 1989, and since then has spread to Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Korea, China, and Taiwan, to name a few.

Infiniti Logo

They came after the Honda Acura brand, but about the same time as the Toyota Lexus brand – and entered the market to tap into Honda’s success. Unfortunately for Infiniti, although they had a strong start, by the mid nineties they were well behind Acura and Lexus, finding their sales dragging and their production overshooting – causing massive price reductions in dealerships to move sluggish inventory. In 1999 they redesigned their look and released the G20 vehicle, a compact which had been halted in 1997, but then remarketed as a competitor to the much more popular European brands. After this they tried other failed ideas, and by the millennium faced obliteration.

Infiniti 2009

The company, before losing itself completely, reorganized and started developing high performance and very luxurious lines of vehicles. After this they began to look at rival BMW’s vehicles, and design around matching them, in order to regain market share and popularity. The policy worked, and soon their sales started to pick up and more people began to buy Infinity branded automobiles. By last year sales had peaked at all time highs, and next year they plan to release new models, like the G35 and G37 (the former being introduced this year actually). They have begun importing to the UK recently, and rumors about an expansion into the Australian market persist to be talked amongst Infiniti enthusiast.


Audi 80 Tuning

Despite being an older marque, the Audi 80, and it’s quattro variants, is still regarded as one of the finest automobiles for the tuning enthusiast giving good power range at very affordable prices. The Audi S2, a sport version with 2.2 liter turbo petrol engine was produced in 1991.

First manufactured in 1966, the Audi 80 had a long production run into the mid 1990s, with final cabriolet models rolling off the production line in 2000. One of Audi’s most popular models, the Audi 80 changed significantly over it’s development, although still retained the same classic lines through most variants.

Tuning an Audi 80 depends very much on year and engine type, and some parts for older variants may be very difficult to come by, resulting in quite a few owners of 1960s Audis having to source parts from wreckers yards or pay a premium for new parts manufactured by Audi.

Audi 80 Tuning

Engine capacity and power output varied considerably over the thirty year production of the Audi 80, beginning with normally aspirated 1.6 liter engines right through to the final years of production when 2.0 liter petrol and 1.6 liter turbo diesel engines were fitted as standard.

The same body shape with larger 2.3 liter five cylinder engine and more luxurious interior trim was also marketed as the Audi 90. The two models are essentially the same, and a lot of cross compatibility of parts exists. In fact it is possible to drop a 2.3 liter from an Audi 90 into an Audi 80 with minor adjustment and proper tuning.

Tuning the Audi 80 for maximum performance should probably start with getting the engine and drivetrain back to as near new condition as possible, a full service and diagnostic analysis should be undertaken to ensure the baseline measurements conform to standard.

Owners of the turbo diesel and MPFI engines will get more performance thru acceleration and top end by re-chipping the car with an aftermarket chip, then tuning again with the new baseline. Most kits provide full installation instructions from removal of the old chip to soldering in the new chip an the entire process can take less than a couple of hours with the right setup.

Some models of Audi 80 do not feature a removable chip, and the entire computer will either need to be removed and sent to the chip programmer, or the car taken to a custom tuning workshop with the capability to reprogram the ECU.

Audi 80s are known for needing regular coolant changes, usually every two years, and before starting your cars performance tuning it’s a good idea to change the coolant and check for head gasket leaks.

Catalytic converters on the Audi 80 and variants can also be problematic, unfortunately it’s a design fault, and replacing this with one from a wreckers yard may not entirely solve the problem.

A new exhaust system with chrome tailpipes is an affordable option for tuning an Audi 80, and used systems may be readily available from trade and exchange markets.

Body Kits That Make your Car Look More Sleek and Fast

Body kits are words that most car enthusiasts have heard of. For those of you who may be in the dark about what these words mean wait just a few moments while the puzzle is solved. To put it briefly the body kits we are referring to are ways in which we can change the look of a car.

You can use expensive body kits or there are companies who have the same kits parts for a lower price. While the kit price is important there are other matters that are just as important. These matters mainly involve the type of changes that you want to implement on to your vehicle. Now you should note that the word vehicle can mean either a car or a truck.

That right! There are body kits available for the truck enthusiast to change forever the way their trucks look too. These many different kits all share the same principle idea. That is to give your vehicle a sleek and aerodynamic look and handling. When you look at your existing car you will notice that there are areas where there is a void. These void areas are mainly in the front, sides and back of your car.

As a result of these voids the wind drags at your car and slows the car down. To prevent this from occurring you will need to apply more force (read higher speeds) to make your vehicle perform well at higher speed limits. With the addition of body kits this extra pressure is no longer needed. The various parts which are placed on your car will help to create that streamlined effect you need.

For the front of your car there are cowl spoilers. This attachment will be placed on the front of your car’s windshield to divert the flow of air. It is mounted of the back of the hood but right in front of the windshield itself. In some body kits you will have a choice of two different front bumper changes that you can install to your car.

Likewise there are interesting attachments for the sides and rear of your vehicle. These attachments are in the form of side skirts. The side skirts are placed over the rocker panels just below the car doors. For the back of the car you can place a full rear lip that is made from polyurethane material.

There is a wide assortment of items which you can purchase to make your car look more sleek and fast. The only boundaries you will find are the type of car you are driving and the final price that you are willing to pay. Once you have these known the sky’s the limit with your car body kits.

Turbo Charge Bmw

Obtaining the most out of your engine has been the goal for many people over the years. There are several types of engines: normal aspirated engines and engines that make use of turbo and compressors to obtain more power from the same cylindrical capacity.

Modern car engines are more efficient and powerful than the engines produced twenty years ago, but there is still place for improvement. For example, if you have a normal aspirated car, you can add a turbo-compressor to increase the amount of horse power the engine develops. But before you rush out to the first car parts and buy a turbo charger for your car, there are things to consider.

The most important thing you must take into consideration when thinking of adding a turbo to your car is to think is the engine’s parts will be able to sustain the extra power from the turbo.

Adding a turbo requires quite a few engine modifications, and the outcome will be more power from your initial power, but will also bring higher temperatures inside the engine and the very high revs the turbine will function.

The German BMW’s are already known for their superior handling, reliability and power, but you squeeze a few more horsepower from your BMW engine by adding a turbo charger.

Compared to other methods of obtaining more power from your engine, superchargers offer less costly and an easier to install kit (these kits make 6-8 lbs of boost and the average home mechanic can safely install a quality application in 6 hours). Superchargers will typically make an impressive horse power increase, but many suppliers do not make a tremendous amount of low RPM torque, so if you only drive your car to work across the city, a turbo will not bring you significant advantages.

There are many components that a turbo charging set contains, as it is made up of thing like the intercooler, the bypass valve, the blow off valve, a waste gate, exhaust manifold, larger injectors and many more.

The typical home mechanic will probably be unable to complete this installation and that is why you should address a large car repair or tuning shop to complete the operation. Even for an experienced mechanic, mounting a turbo kit will take several days of work.

However, due to the significant increase in power a turbo kit brings your car, the wait is worth it. But when considering turboing your BMW, you should also consider improving your car’s brakes, as a 500 horse power BMW will require a lot of braking force to bring it to a stop from the astonishing speeds it can achieve. So the braking system should also be improves when mounting the kit (elements such as larger diameter rotors, multi piston calipers, sport brake pads, stainless steel brake lines and performance brake fluid should be on your shopping list).

You should also pay special attention to the BMW’s drive train when thinking of turboing your BMW. The initial car was developed to handle only a certain amount of power and any increase in this amount of power can affect your car’s stability and ability in taking corners if you not strengthen up essential parts in the BMW’s drive train (such as the clutch).

Also the car’s cooling system should be upgraded as well when turboing your BMW, as power generates heat and the initial radiator had been developed to eliminate just a certain amount of engine heat.

So you may think that adding a turbo kit to your BMW is an easy operations, but the truth is that if you want to have a professional operation done, there are other elements beside the engine itself that have to be modified.

Increase Your Sports Cars Fuel Efficiency

One of rust to have a conspicuous sport scar is the great number of gasoline which they consume.

One of the reasons ahead for which the sport scars b�frent the fuel so much is due to their fast acceleration. It is much of recreation to being able to go from 0 to 60 as Juste a few seconds, but thinks so that it makes with your gas mileage cars. Slightly keep your foot on the gas pedal while accelerating; there is not no need to obtain with far with a fast beginning for lighting every hour. Another thing which b�fre the gas leads too fast.

When him 's all does it, they turn the crank to the top of the dyno and become thoughtless above the profit of 3 powers in horses realized after roughly 4 work hours.

That 's not exactly how the majority would like to spend their weekend, and all for a negligible 3hp.

Naturally, 's to completely a little say there for these traditional computer-free that you can have full control more. However, when it has suddenly obtained more power in one nothing time and without having to tear your hands or piles of money launching cash on the parts hardware-to-find, a vehicle ordered by computer has a distinct advantage.

The good news is, you 'about probably driving a vehicle ordered by computer, like more sold during the century of last quarters. This made grant much easier, because a whole of programs determines how your engine carries out.

Replace simply your engine 'actions of S programming with some that 's adapted towards the execution and you will discover power gains almost immediately.

Just how can you obtain with those power gains in minutes? The answer is easy, with a programmer of power or the piece of execution, as those made by Hypertech or DiabloSport.

These programmers of power are designed to consider implementation plans created and examined by for. It 's so frank a cave man could do it.

Connect-Juste it with the port of OBD-II under your steering column, enter some simple yes orders or not to adjust how you want that the engine carries out, download the new programming, and you 'about loan to be rocked with 25 powers in horses or more.

Auto Performance Tuning to your car

Each principal mobile body and minor of your car can refine-being granted to increase speed, Auto Performance Tuning, softness, and maneuverability. Left 's explore the key zones of the execution granting and see how each one can better contribute to the drive. Auto Performance Tuning.

With a piece of execution, the engines theturbo one often have as consequence approximately a push of power of 10 percent while the engines the turbo one often see an increase of 25 to 30 powers in horses!

The engines also see a push of power with a cam of execution, which can be adapted by an experienced mechanic or a homemechanic really quite informed. The cams of approximately 270 degrees can amplify the engine to additional expenses 12 powers in horses.

A valve of pushed power can also be installed to replace the governor automatically-controlled fuel, which is located in the fuel line of return.

Agreement of execution of brake

Be sure to increase your power of braking before increasing the power in your car. The brakes are very important for your execution and safety although they are not considered execution-improvement of the devices.

A manner simple to improve braking is to install trimmings of execution and to fix discs of execution. The brake linings of execution increase the power of braking and can resist the temperatures much higher than the regular brake linings. Air filters and agreement

Probably one of the easiest tasks of development is to replace the air filters or the element of air filter in an air filter of execution. If you have a car fuel-injected, you can also increase the flow of air by removing the original airbox, which contains the air filter and the pipes and then the replacement of him by a kit of induction.

The kit is a filter of cone which can be fixed directly at the meter of circulation of air, so creating a flow of air more directed and uninterrupted to the engine. More air means better execution of engine.

Improvement of exhaust

The Council: Replace the exhaust manifold made with the factory by a mark of market of the accessories which is granted to amplify the power.

A better turn with the increased suspension

The suspension is another sector of agreement of principal car which passes often unperceived. The lowering of the springs can be adapted to obtain a better glance and to feel for the car. Handling is improved because the springs reduce the bread by taking corners. Moreover, the tires will have improved the contact with the road.

These springs could feel like the standard springs while leading above small bumps in the road; however, by driving back them hard stiffen and reduce the bread. This gives comfort and improved handling. The reinforced shock absorbers and bushes also increase the suspension.

After many hours outside on the way I can now finally say that I the 'VE is descended, the agreement for me is now an operation 5 minute before I remove my car of RC, and once it 's composed to me inside must only adjust one needle a fraction of a turn to again obtain it with him 'with optimal arrangements of S.

I suppose that your include/understand the foundations of an engine nitro of RC and how that functions, if not see my other articles please that you can find on my Web site, see the box of resource for details.

The screw with vacuum
I always start with the screw with vacuum, I adjust it so that the car idles high when I 'm initially composing in the engine. Once I obtain the engine until the temperature and with a tube which can continue it to slowly run me without lose speed downwards adjust the idle on the point where him 's approximately to fix, then I turn it behind approximately turn of 1/4 to 1/2 according to the temperature. If your stalls of car often it can be interesting to increase the idle to prevent this, him 's only one difficulty provisional while you sort the other exit of agreement, but helps him downwards of the levels of destruction of subsistence.

Switches at fallback speed.
One of the great discussions is of which needle to be adjusted initially, if your carburettor has only one adjustment screw of needle then him 's not a problem, but so as the majority of the engines of gleam you have two you have need to decide what to grant initially. I always start with the needle at fallback speed, this is because when you adjust the needle at fallback speed you change the needle at high speed. Once the needle at fallback speed is made up in you shouldn 't must still adjust it. You slightly ensure subsistence it rich side, when you conveys that RC idles the combustion chamber should start to fill of the fuel, this helps the fresh subsistence it. After one moment the engine will fix, by measuring this you can say if it is richer or thinner. A good time is approximately 30 - 60 seconds before it fixes. The car of RC should withdraw quickly beginning upright and would not owe embourber or to flame outside when you apply the full power control.

Switches at high speed.
Once you have your needle at fallback speed of adjustment made up in it 'time of S to start to obtain the power out of the engine of RC. This is done with the needle at high speed, which adjusts the air on the mixture of fuel of the engine while it as high T/MN (approximately 40% and rise). Keep an eye on the trail of smoke because it is your first index about the air. You want to have smoked much to leave the engine with all the T/MN, so at a certain point there is little or not smoke whereas you are
