Posted on May 22, 2016 in News

Producer cars from South Korea does not lag behind the leaders of the automobile world and introduce new product in Detroit – three-door coupe Hyundai Veloster. South Korea's concern does not hide the fact that the production series car at 70-80% identical to show the punishment Veloster, debuted three years ago at the motor show in Seoul. Initially, South Korean concern was not planning to run a small compartment in the series, but after a good reception of visitors and experts, the company still change your mind. What is attractive Hyundai Veloster? Motorists liked the design itself, which consists of a complex curved bonnet, bold optics, darkened front parlor with a comfortable stoek.Avto will be built based on the Kia cee'd, which is very popular in among youth. In the Hyundai does not suggest that it may be under the hood of new items, but the new 1.6-liter four-Gamma necessarily appear. This unit is capable of producing 138 hp and 168 Nm of torque, coupled with new dual-clutch gearbox.

German Xenon

Posted on August 18, 2014 in News

Now, a xenon lamp 6000K shines with a kind of yellowish-green tint. Instead, a xenon lamp shines brightest 6500K white light, slightly lame-blue spectrum. Now we remove the XENON 6000K and put the Germans with a temperature of 4250K. As you may have guessed … Mercedes had no compared with Hundai … just everything is exactly the opposite … Unfortunately output is not in favor of German Xenon lamps: the higher the color temperature, the brighter and whiter light shines. And if at first (up to 4000K) light has a clear yellow shade, after 4000K spectrum shifts to red, then it goes from pink to greenish hues …

And after the 6000K range of ‘go’ with the blue … All these observations are valid for lamps with a transparent envelope, because blue bulb Naturally all the shifts in the blue area. Incidentally there is a perception that the blue lamp is made of white, the color of light that does not fit into the rigid framework. This is partly true, but not all manufacturers. At one time, held through Moscow, the party of blue lights, which even a blue coating on the bulb could not hide the difference in the glow of lamps. And the people who suffer kupivshiesya of price now so far. But back to ‘our sheep’. We talked about the ‘naked’ light bulbs …

If they are inserted into the spotlight, there may be some variations in color as the glow then makes adjustments to its reflector. And then we want to note that if you want to have exactly the same light as the ‘out that Mercedes (Audi, BMW)’ then you need to buy the same car … Optics are different. We had a case where the same set of xenon for the interest rearranged ML-210-D body. Lamps and blocks are the same, but they shone on two different machines in different ways. But it was machine with optics, not designed for the installation of xenon. Now imagine what the difference is between, say, two Mercedes 220’s bodies, if one xenon from the factory and another is set in Russia in halogen optics. Yes, the difference will be, and quite decent, though the machine must be near. Otherwise, this difference can not even catch any specialist. Although any special right to say, shine your car lights ‘xenon’ and there are shining galogenki … By the way installation of xenon on the Mercedes in linzovannoy optics does not allow the eye to determine the ‘factory’ Xenon is a car or not. So rejoice owners straight from the tin AUDI, VW, and BMW …


First Automobile Group

Posted on July 29, 2011 in News

In the last decade in automobile markets of the former USSR was a lot of cheap Asian cars. Bought a car and made a toning skate itself. In most of these cars are bought by our citizens in large numbers. It's all about the price. After all, the price of Chinese cars in the total mass is much lower than not only the Russian car industry, but also well-known brands. Corporations that produce cars in China, can be safely divided into two categories. 1) This is a joint venture with the world's major auto companies.

For the most part, are ordinary assembly plants that use advanced technology of the West and of course, appropriate quality components. These companies produce apart from older models, taken out of production, as modern cars sold in Europe. For example, the well-known company First Automobile Group (China) has plants in joint ownership with Volkswagen, Toyota and Mazda. They are not available new Mazda Familia (323), VW Santana and quite modern – Toyota Corolla, Mazda 6, VW Gol and Land Cruiser. 2) In this group of companies – all Chinese. They let the cars of their own development, which quietly and successfully replicate model brands. In addition, they use Chinese parts and assemblies, and use their own production technology. From well-known brands such can be called the Geely and Chery.

There are companies that own the plants with world known companies. Price range for the car affects the use in the manufacture of world technology. One can cite the example of Ford Focus, whose price in China is identical to the price of a car in our country or in the Square Ukraine. Prices for such cars as the Chevrolet Aveo, BMW 320i, Toyota Prado, Hyundai Sonata and Tucson, Honda CR-V are consistent with European standards. Excellent selling older models, or their, the Chinese development. They then, as time and cost many times cheaper than their neighbors and competitors Koreans, Japanese or Europeans. In addition, Chinese engineers are not static, and can now offer a car to liquefied natural gas. Higher gas prices do not stop producers who want to develop and implement environmentally friendly car models. However, if you look at the price of cars in China, it turns out that the country gathered in current models, produced in the same time Europe, as well as in Korea and Japan – are expensive, the price of comparable European.
