How to eliminate blind spots? How do you know when to stop as you are parallel parking? What should you never do before making a left turn? Even the most experienced drivers don’t always know all the nuances that can make driving easier. Bright Side explains how to feel at ease when driving, learn to avoid dangerous situations and become a confident driver. Every tip we are going to share is very important, so you’d better not miss any of them. TIMESTAMPS Get to know your vehicle 0:48 Check if all your mirrors are adjusted correctly 1:45 Don't drive in someone else's blind spot 2:26 Learn to feel where the wheels are 3:13 Park guided by your windows and mirrors 3:51 Learn to drive in bad weather 4:44 Dry your brakes after driving through a puddle 5:30 Watch out for the maneuvers of taller cars in front of you 6:06 If the car doesn’t start, turn the high beams on 6:35 Lower your rear-view mirror at night 7:00 Turn on the air conditioner 7:19 Use the handbrake regularly 7:34 If a car in the neighboring lane is slowing down, follow suit 7:54 Don’t let the illusion of low speed deceive you 8:12 Don’t turn the wheels beforehand when making a left turn 8:44 SUMMARY - Believe us, when you hit the roads you will have many things to worry about rather than finding the switches for your front and rear fog lights or your hazard light button. See it as getting ready for an important exam. The more time you take preparing for it and the better you know the material, the less stress you will have during the exam. - To eliminate blind spots, adjust your side-view mirrors so that you can’t see your car in them. To check if there is a blind spot, drive past another parked car in reverse, looking in your side-view mirror. As soon as it’s out of the picture, you should see it with your peripheral vision. - If you find yourself in a dangerous position, change it. A dangerous position is when you are driving along to the right and slightly behind another vehicle. You are likely to be in their blind spot, so they don’t see you. - If you want to avoid potholes on the road, you need to learn to feel where the wheels are. Feeling your vehicle is the key to being able to control it and it is crucially important for safe driving. - When perpendicular parking, stop once you see the curb under the side mirror. This way the distance between the car and the curb will be minimal, and you won’t scratch the bumper. When parallel parking, make sure you don’t scratch the hubcaps. Stick a piece of colored duct tape to the bottom of the windshield. - You never know what might happen and when you are going to have to drive in bad weather conditions, so it is better to be prepared. The best thing about practicing is that you can choose the time and place to do it. - Before even the smallest of puddles, you’d better slow down and go through it smoothly without maneuvering or changing speed. If you drive quickly, there is a chance of water getting into the ignition system and making the engine stall. - Drivers of taller vehicles (truck and buses) see road situations much more clearly. If they start to change lanes all at once, it’s likely that they saw a car accident or a different kind of roadblock. - In the times of global climate change, you never know where and when winter might come after you. Sometimes in winter the car just won’t start on the first try. It is not a reason to panic, call for help, or use public transportation instead. - To avoid being blinded by a car behind you, change the angle of the mirror by pulling down the lever under it. - Even when you don’t use the air conditioner (for example, in winter), turn it on regularly for a short period of time. - Even if you don’t do angle parking, use the handbrake regularly to keep it alive. The only exception is very cold weather. In such conditions, you’d better avoid using the handbrake so that the brake pads don’t freeze. - If you see a car in the neighboring lane slowing down, you should do the same. It’s likely that the driver wants to let a pedestrian or an animal pass. - On a straight road, the speed seems to be two times lower than it really is. It makes you want to speed up to give your vehicle a chance to show its full power. - It’s dangerous to turn the wheels in advance before making a left turn. They must be in the initial position. If a car hits you from the back, you might be thrown into the opposite lane where hitting other cars will be inevitable.

10 amazing driving tricks that will make you a better driver and your life easier. These tips are useful for both beginners and professionals. Are you an experienced driver? Then you surely know that having a car is not easy. You have to deal with many little problems all the time: a scratch here, window crack there… You also have to watch out for the safety of your car. Do you want to learn how to keep your coffee cup safe at speed? To make your life easier, we collected some tips that are useful for both beginners and professionals! TIMESTAMPS Nail polish can almost hide a small scratch 0:47 Clear nail polish can stop a windshield crack 1:17 Turn the steering wheel when you need to leave the car 1:37 Get rid of the bright sun 2:08 A bay leaf to prevent car sickness 2:36 A smart sunglasses holder 2:57 A lemon helps to prevent drowsiness while driving 3:21 Enhanced cupholder 3:46 Hang a tennis ball in the garage 4:15 Check the oil quality 4:40 Check the gas quality 5:43 Super fast car ventilation 6:55 Use static electricity to fight with your pet's hair 7:25 How to avoid car doors' freezing 8:00 Use potato not to let your car windows fog 8:20 A road-trip with kids 8:46 SUMMARY - After you find the perfect match, put some on the scratch. After the nail polish dries, just buff the scratch a little to make it smooth. - To combat such cracks, use clear nail polish. Put 2 or 3 layers on the crack, and it will stop the crack from growing. - The steering wheel is already too hot to touch! To avoid this, turn the steering wheel by 180 degrees when leaving the car. The part you use to drive will stay in the shadow. - In order not to get blinded by the sun, take an acrylic sheet and put it on the windshield. Acrylic is easily attached to the windshield thanks to static electricity, and it protects your eyes from ultraviolet rays very well. - If you've got a long road ahead of you and you are worried that you might get car sick, there is a fantastic solution! You may be surprised, but you just need to put a bay leaf under your tongue. - Are you one of those people who doesn't know where to put their sunglasses in the car? There is just the place: put them on the sun visor. This way you'll make sure your glasses won't fall on a bumpy road. - If you are feeling a bit drowsy when driving, put a piece of lemon under your tongue. This will wake you up very quickly. But still, we don't recommend you to drive when you are tired. - This advice will come in handy to those who find that their cupholder isn't reliable enough. Put a little silicone cupcake case on the bottom of the cupholder. This way, your coffee cup will be secured inside, and all the little pieces of trash will be in the case. - A tennis ball hanging in the garage can be a point which shows that a wall is near. The ball will help you to feel the car's size more easily, so you won't drive further than necessary. - Heat the engine for 5-10 minutes, and cut the ignition off. Open the hood, and put a couple of oil drops onto a sheet of paper. Carefully take the sheet in a warm place and wait for 2 hours for the oil to dry. - Put a drop of gas on a white sheet of paper, blow on it, and wait for the drop to evaporate. If the paper is perfectly white after the experiment, it means that you are using good-quality gas. If there is a greasy spot, it means there is some kerosene in the gas. - Open a door and one of the front windows. Then open and close the door on the opposite side of the car. Do it a couple of times - this trick helps to cool down the car quickly, and it also gets rid of unpleasant smells easily. - All you need is a pair of latex gloves. Put them on and rub your gloved hands against the carpet. It will create static electricity which in turn will help pet hair to resurface. - When the windows in the car start fogging from the inside, you need to cut a potato in two parts. Then rub the potato on the windows from the inside and let them dry. - Use a shower organizer to keep everything you need on the way, from diapers to bottles with water and some games. Just fix it to the seat in front of you and enjoy your organized ride!

AUDI Electric Motor Engine FACTORY - HOW IT'S MADE | HYPNOTIC VIDEO. New era: Audi Hungaria starts series production of electric motors #Audi #Cars #Production #Engine A new era is starting at Audi Hungaria. On Tuesday, series production of electric motors officially started in Győr. In the context of the symbolic act, the production plant was put into operation by Péter Szijjártó, Minister for Foreign Trade and Foreign Affairs, Peter Kössler, Board of Management Member for Production and Logistics at AUDI AG, and Achim Heinfling, Managing Director of AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt. The electric motors are produced on floor space of 8,500 square meters with an innovative production concept: modular assembly. The company has invested a double digit million amount to set up the motor production facility. Approximately 100 people are employed in this new area at present. Discover ALL new cars before anyone else!

The departments for the development of electric motors and for production planning cooperated closely with the prototype manufacturing/ production technology center in Győr to develop the required expertise. The current production capacity is for approximately 400 electric axle motors each day and can be gradually increased. At present, about 100 people are employed in this new area, to be increased to more than 130 by the end of the year. Production is with one‑shift operation, but will soon change to three shifts. The electric motor from Győr offers numerous new features. With the stator – one of the core components of the motor – the aim is to insert as much of the thin enameled copper wire as possible into the casing: the tighter the winding, the more efficient the power delivery. A new winding and inserting center at Audi Hungaria makes it possible to wind the optimal amount of enameled copper wire particularly compactly and then insert it into the casing. The electric axle consists of other large components such as the power electronics, which are located in their own housing, the gearing and two shafts that transmit the power to the wheels. The employees produce two electric axle drive systems for each Audi e-tron, as both the front and rear axles are driven – in good quattro tradition. interior test drive assembly line audi a4 luxury
https://carbuyingsupport.com Greg Macke - Your Car Angel explains the cost difference between buying a new or used car. The video Should I Buy a New Car gives you the answer to this question. The "Sweet Spot" is the time in a the life of the car that the repair cost as well as the depreciation are low. In other words it is the best time to buy and own a car.
Since its introduction in 2002, it’s always seemed like the Volkswagen Touareg has fought a losing battle. In a class where image is everything, big SUVs from Audi, BMW and Mercedes have a headstart over the less prestigious ‘people’s car’ alternative. In other words, the Touareg needs to be really special to compete.
Our first experience of the all-new generation was promising, and now we’ve tried the car for the first time on UK roads. Under the skin, the Touareg rides on the VW Group MLBevo platform - the same that’s used for not just the Audi Q7, but also the Bentley Bentayga and the Lamborghini Urus. It’s slightly shorter than a Q7, but marginally longer, wider and lower than the old Touareg.
With the new chassis comes a fresh look. It’s an evolution of the old car’s, but the neat blend of headlights (LED as standard and LED matrix optional) into an imposing front grille, a rakish roofline and neat behind make the latest model the sharpest-looking yet - arguably a more handsome beast than the Q7 or the BMW X5.
Sharing a platform system with its posher VW-Group cousins grants it access to much of the same tech. Air suspension, four-wheel steering and active anti-roll bars are all on the options list, and all three trim levels get adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and leather seats as standard.
The Touareg’s engine line-up will soon include a 228bhp diesel, a 3.0-litre V6 petrol and, eventually, a plug-in hybrid. For now, there’s just one choice, but it’s a great one. We’ve tried the 3.0-litre V6 diesel unit, here making 282bhp, in various VAG installations before, and as ever it’s smooth, strong, and an ideal match for a big SUV like the Touareg.
It’s just a shame that the gearbox doesn’t make the best of the hefty 600Nm of torque on offer. The eight-speed auto is far too keen to kick down, and its slow responses cause a frustrating pause before the car surges forwards.
Gearbox aside, the Touareg is very relaxing from behind the wheel. On the optional air suspension (regular springs and adaptive dampers are standard) the ride is excellent. Road noise is perhaps a little more audible than in the Q7, but wind noise is impressively hushed.
But the Touareg isn’t one to be rushed. It feels every bit a high-riding two-tonne car through the turns, and mid-corner bumps cause it to shimmy from its intended course. The steering, while precise, lacks feel, too. On the plus side, the optional steering rear axle is brilliant - gracing this near-five-metre-long behemoth with the low-speed manoeuvrability of a Golf. It’s available as part of a package with the air suspension, and it’s an upgrade well worth considering, though it’s not cheap, at £2,370.
But the Touareg saves its best for the inside, because the cabin is more attractive than not only the Q7, but pretty much any other alternative in this segment. The highlight is Volkswagen's Innovision Cockpit, a combination of a 12-inch and 15-inch screens which blend driving and infotainment functions together for what almost appears like a single huge, gently curving display.
