Italian Car Audio

Have you ever driven along the narrow mountain road of sunny Italy? If not, then this is something that you might want to add to the bucket list provided that it isn’t there already. Driving in Italy can be one of the most enjoyable experiences you can ever have and there is a reason this is so true: after all, Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and there is a reason it is renowned for it.

Even if you don’t happen to live anywhere in Italy you can still benefit from Italian car audio provided that this is something you have installed in your car. Italian sound systems are well known to be of high quality and those who are familiar with them can easily confirm how true it is. Just try to get your hands on one of them and you will know exactly what I am talking about here.

If you are a fan of being able to listen to quality of music when you drive you are in for some real treat because Italian audio systems are so reliable that you cannot really go wrong with them. Just make sure that the system you choose to go for is reputable enough for you to benefit from it as much as possible.

Next time you are planning to buy an audio system for your precious car, consider giving it a go by driving in a car with it.This is probably one of the few ways of ensuring that you get a proper look and try at the system so that you know exactly what you are buying. You need to be able to test such system on the road because seeing it in a store might not be enough to fully realise the potential of it.

Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles could help improve the quality of life of the elderly, especially those living in rural areas.

Changes within the world of automotive technology could have a hugely positive impact on social wellbeing.

Not so much in London (although it will) but out in rural areas where I live, I see people waiting for buses, come rain or shine. I often think how much extra time it all takes for these people to simply maybe even get into the local town and just the overall extra hassle. Why is this? I take a different view on rural areas in the United States where I think it gets far more complicated.

Most of these people at the bus stop won’t want to drive. The cost of car ownership is too high, and even getting a licence presents cost and time barriers. Let’s face it, there is a young generation that also feels the same. I was sat at the weekend with a friend who raced F1 and his young son in the next room has pretty much zero interest in cars, let alone the hassle of having to drive one.

Recently I have been at various communities such Ebe Vale in Wales. With the dawn of a new era in autonomous vehicles we might actually be able to benefit the lives of many people that have not had the access to transport which actually they should. Maybe driverless cars shouldn’t just be for the people with money but an actual human right?

Why does it cost so much to get across London or any other city in a cab? Why do we have to pay so much to travel to family by train just because we cannot afford a car and the insurance? Some of the train fares I see are not far off the cost of car insurance anyway!

Picture this: Samsung or Apple decide to build an Automatic Pod. Let’s face it, it feels like a roadmap from our cell phones anyway. Built not only for the city but for your rural village (like where I live) in the middle of nowhere. That same rural village the bus goes through once a day and it costs £40 return in a cab to the nearest town which probably in fuel is actually £1. The same rural village has a lady called Sue who is 89, insures her car to do about a few 100 miles a year and probably even she questions whether she should be driving or indeed wants to? See I know Sue, Sue is my neighbour and I clean her car but also watch her drive off. Sue owns an iPad and frankly gets tech – sort of, but enough to get through.

Imagine if I could say to Sue, tomorrow: ‘Sue instead of you driving to the hospital for your appointment, being extra stressed, Samsung or Apple are going to send you a pod to pick you up’. Imagine if I said: ‘that pod is going to pitch you advertising on your journey so it’s free’. Sue would probably say she would rather pay for it to cut the advertising and listen to a piece of music or watch something. Sue’s life would be opened up to a whole new world. Not only that but also Sue’s friends. In fact Sue’s worse case is that she gets to boss the pod around – with the money she loses on fuel, insurance and depreciation (because Sue still thinks you need to own and update your car every four years) she would be better off.

There may also come a point that through just getting older, Sue won’t be able to hold a licence, like many people. So instead of Sue feeling isolated further and even contemplating the possibility she has to move, autonomous cars will help empower her life.

If Elon Musk and others have their way, we will watch empty Teslas and others driving around cities, the country and towns empty, being hailed for us at the next person who needs to use them. They will be owned by someone like me but used in my down time. So I argue that while my car is heading off to someone like Sue to use but I am 10 miles away, why cannot my vehicle give someone a lift for free? Or maybe just a token coffee?

The NHS has its relationship with taxis and volunteers. I have seen the tender bids by taxi companies for NHS Trust business to get patients to appointments and then home. It’s shocking trust me: really shocking! My mother in law, who is a good egg, offers to drive patients to appointments when she has spare time. I couldn’t tell you how much that costs, but knowing my mother it law it will be the minimum because she wants to help. So how about the NHS has access to the Samsung pod? The Apple pod? Imagine how much on a UK level can be saved but the patient quality goes up.

Either way, people at the bus stop, people like Sue will have a whole new life opened up to them, more options, more things to make them smile and for me that’s a good thing. If that’s here in the UK, then imagine what can happen in other countries where just getting the basics out of life is a challenge.

Good Reasons to Part with Your Car

Selling your car is not the only time in your life when you might want to be away from it. Going on holidays, for example, is this time of year when you might not be able to take it with you, especially if you plan to travel by plane. If this is the case, you will want to park your car safely to ensure that it is there waiting for you when you are back from your adventures. Here are some ideas to make that happen:

1. Consider airport parking such as Every day, thousands of travellers park in such places leaving their cars for the time they are away. Airport parking is a very popular choice among car owners as it allows them bigger control over how they can get to the airport. This is also a huge time saver.
2. If you cannot absolutely find a parking space near you, evaluate your choices. Sometimes getting to airport by bus is a good option that will allow you to save time. I am not saying that it is convenient and that it is always possible, but I want to tell you that this sometimes might be an option.
3. Always plan ahead of time. Your time for travel is usually a busy time, so the last thing you want is trying to in a hurry decide what you are going to do with your car once you arrive at the airport. Especially during busy times many airport parking places might be filled to the brim, so make sure that you make all of the arrangements well ahead of time. This will always save you money and time and a lot of stress as well because once you have your airport parking sorted out you will be able to focus on other aspects of your adventures.

As you can see, with a little bit of planning every trip you are going to make can mean a lot of fun for you and your family. Whether you are going to enjoy yourself or not will usually depend how you planned everything to avoid the unnecessary stress.

The Best Tips for Protecting Your New Paint Job

If you’re thinking about starting a new paint project for your car, then you’ll want to make sure you follow along with this guide. Starting a new paint job can be a fun and relaxing experience, but it can quickly turn frustrating if you aren’t careful. After all, no one wants to see all of their hard work get undone by an awkward scratch or unexpected bit of weather. With that in mind, here’s a quick overview of some of the best tips out there for any good paint job.

Think About Where You Work

Before you start your painting project, you’ll want to make sure you choose a good area to do it in. In general, the best areas for painting a car are typically in areas that are relatively shaded and cool. By working in these areas, you can ensure that your paint sealant has plenty of time to bond with the car. If you try to rush this aspect of the job, you’ll quickly find that your sealant has effectively done nothing, and you’ll need to start all over from the beginning again. Instead, try to get it right the first time by scoping out your workspace ahead of time.

Stay Updated on New Technologies

Aside from the confusing terminology used by many automotive makers, there are a few other things that you should be aware of before starting your painting project. For instance, instead of getting a generic paint sealant or protectant, you might want to look into something that can potentially add a little more protection, like PVD technology. Products that utilize this kind of protection can help protect against corrosion and oxidation, and ensure that your paint job lasts for much longer than would have otherwise been possible. If you haven’t already looked into these kinds of technologies, now might be the time to do so. In general though, it’s worth always staying updated on new technologies as they emerge, especially with regards to car maintenance. After all, if a new tool can make your job go smoother, it’s always worth trying to take advantage of it.

No one wants to see their car wither as time goes by, especially if it’s a prized possession with sentimental value. If you’re trying to protect your car against the elements, then you’ll want to make sure you use the best tools for the job.

The new Mercedes G650 Maybach Landaulet

Whenever there is a new good car that is announced to be put on the market there is usually a lot of excitement surrounding it. The situation is not different in case of the G650 Maybach Landaulet as we have been hearing it being mentioned from as early as the Geneva Auto Show in 2017. So, why is there so much going on regarding this particular car model? Let me here explain so that you know exactly what is going on.

There are some cars, and the G650 Maybach Landaulet is definitely one of them, that are considered to be rare. In this case we are talking about only 99 cars in the world!!! yes, you read it right, only that few have been made. It is no wonder then that some people are already willing to pay 3.500.000 euros for it as there are a lot more people interested in it than you can possibly imagine. Even there was a limited number of models that could enter each country. Ever since then, various Mercedes enthusiasts have been hunting those cars hoping to be able to grab one here or there.

The G650 Maybach Landaulet is a very luxurious car indeed.When you look at the picture below, you will know exactly what I am talking about here. It is basically a limo in the form of an SUV, which is a very rare combination and a rather one that is hard to find. It is no wonder then that there are so many people battling for the right for that sort of luxury, which is rather rare you must admit.

There are some really cool features of this particular model such as the fact that the G650 has all the technology of the Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4², but there is so much more to it including portal axles, electronic dampers and a track widened by 25cm.

The car is currently being sold mostly in Europe, but not in the USA.
