Walked out to the car, but it is not. What to do?

Walked out to the car, but it is not. What to do?

In such a situation, sooner or later, may be one of us. Imagine you come out of a Mall or a café and not find his car where he had left her an hour earlier. Rises to the throat com, the legs become wobbly, and the brain randomly goes through the options for further action. What to do? Who do I call?

The first thing you need to calm down and temporarily discard the worst option. Yes, your car could have been stolen, but in most cases everything is much more prosaic. Inspect the Parking spot: if you find that you did not notice the sign or markings prohibiting the Parking lot, took a handicapped spot, or parked on a pedestrian crossing — to look for the car you have pulled away.

Make sure that the car is really evacuated the city, in several ways: call in duty of the traffic police on number 112; in Moscow call the hotline of the Moscow Parking space to number 8 (495) 539-54-54 or 3210 (free mobile calls) or by sending an SMS with the text “EV license plate TC” to the number 7377.

To avoid unnecessary troubles, develop the habit to carry the documents with you. If paper is left in the glove box, you will have to bring them to the impound lot, then go to the Department of traffic police/MADI (it can be on the other side of town) for a Protocol violation, and only after that you can return to the Parking lot to pick up the car.

The cost of evacuation depends on the category of vehicle, and engine power. For the owner of the car power up to 80 HP such “transfer” will cost 3000 rubles, the owners of oversized equipment can give 29 000. However, for those who have decided to pay the fine and the evacuation on the spot, a discount of 25%. If this is not possible, you can make money within 60 days, but in full.

Now let’s back up a little bit and consider the following situation: you visited the Parking spot and are absolutely sure that the rules are not violated. Should we just grab the heart, call in insurance and to go to the authorities to write a statement about the theft? Not always.

There are cases when the traffic police/MADI move legally parked cars on neighboring streets. This usually occurs in the center of the city, when clearing the Parking lot in front of some office, where must pass a mass event. The car can move for renovations. On the eve of may 9, my friend’s car was taken from Novy Arbat to the waterfront of Taras Shevchenko, because of the parade rehearsal.

About the legality of this method is debatable, but, as a rule, the owners who found their cars in the surrounding streets, you feel euphoric and lost all the brakes. Make sure that your “swallow”, “pereprobovali”, the hotline Administrator of the Moscow Parking space 8 (495) 539-54-54 or 3210 (mobile).

And another thing: do not agree to the proposals of the local vultures-taxi drivers promising to take you to the car. For a trip to a few kilometers, they may require a few thousand. However, with the right mood they can be taught a lesson. My buddy (the one with the Arbat) arrived with the same taxi driver to the embankment of Taras Shevchenko, saying: “why are You telling me, there is my car?!” — left greedy the driver adequate three hundred rubles.

There is another option that needs to be checked before you call the police about the theft. Make sure that the car could not take someone from your family having a second set of keys. This is a rare situation, but it can be real, if you, for example, quarrel with spouse. Or another option: you have cynical friends with a specific sense of humor, able to “wrap” the disappearance of the machine in the “nice joke”.

And only if none of the above options did not materialize, it is necessary to call the police and write a statement about the theft. This is a very unfortunate situation, but the chances of finding a car is always there. How to increase them, you can tell quite a long time. However, that’s another story.

Ferrari scares fans 4-cylinder engine. But it’s not so scary!

“Is downsizing has come to the Scuderia?!” — cried the fans of the brand Ferrari saw the news about patented naduvnoj the Quartet. Unfortunately or fortunately, but we still don’t know what the Italian engineers had patented the unusual unit — maybe it will be a “heart” for reincarnated Dino may prescribe under the hood, a new Maserati or Alfa Romeo, maybe this is an engineering exercise without any industrial prospects. But the idea is interesting.

Ferrari scares fans 4-cylinder engine. But it's not so scary!

Mounted in the exhaust manifold, the impeller spins the generator and that generates electricity and stores it in the battery. The energy is then used for traction motor and to drive the second impeller (compressor) installed in the intake manifold. The lack of a rigid connection between the two impellers allows you to smoothly adjust the exhaust back pressure and thus get rid of the effect plugged the pharynx, common to all turbo engines, that is the Ferrari engine will sing! The electrical component of the system completely eliminates turbojam, so you can expect a strong acceleration throughout the Rev range.

Extra bonus — excellent environmental performance and economy. But only 4 cylinder… budget For the previous conditional models Dino Ferrari did a 2.0-liter engine, but those were at least 6 cylinders, but the “Quartet” on the serial Ferrari had never used. However, it may not be.

  • If future 4-cylinder Ferrari engine is open to question, it is the first crossover of the Scuderia will certainly release.

Kicked out the glass and ran away: the deer visited the showroom with expensive cars

Kicked out the glass and ran away: the deer visited the showroom with expensive cars

In the video you can see how the animal rushes about, trying to find a way out of strange and unfamiliar places. The employees of the dealership trying to help him, that is, to take hands and stand on the street, but the deer sees the people of the danger and not given. At some point one of the men almost managed to grab the intruder, but he screamed and broke, and then properly ran and jumped out the window breaking, of course, glass. Expensive cars, judging by the video, the deer didn’t hurt, so the damage from the visit of the forest dweller was relatively small.

The passport parameters of the Roadster could almost not change (numbers Bureau does not), but on the road, the i8 will bypass the serial counterparts due to the lower mass and retuned the chassis. This principle, called the Bureau Innovation 2.0.

Hybrid family BMW i8 — it’s more about technology, fashion and style, rather than about sport, despite all the spectacular view. But in the Studio AC Schnitzer think that buyers of such cars can make interesting offer. Last year, the Bureau worked on the coupe, and even put him on the Nordschleife. No matter what time of 8:19.8, only slightly better than the figure eight Camaro SS of the previous generation. The standard i8 is even slower. And now the experts from Aachen have turned their attention to i8 Roadster.

New components for bodywork Atelier made of carbon fiber. This applies not only to the wing or splitter, but also mirrors, frames, hidden door handle, door sill. Still offered several different decorative radiator grilles to choose from.

The reason to work with an open version was a long time coming. Since the experience with the i8 coupe, the family survived the upgrade. Among other things, the engineers have slightly increased the capacity of the hybrid system (now it is hidden 374 “horse” against 362 before the reform). Atelier AC Schnitzer to interfere in the settings of the units did not. So, it is unlikely to disperse hundreds changed any tangible (the source was 4.6 C). The Bureau prepared a new draft on the proven recipe.

The aesthetics of the lame places, but the Studio assures that there is form follows function and all the aerodynamic components really work.

The first step is lowering the suspension front and rear 20-25 mm. the Second step is AC1 wheels with a diameter of 21 inches (black or two-tone), giving a saving in weight of 4.4 kg. It is a bit for the whole machine as a whole, but the savings account for unsprung weight, and rotating — in movement can be felt. Third — aerodynamic components. Changes on the outside is complemented by a proprietary velour floor mats, aluminum pedal caps and original cover of the iDrive controller. And now the Roadster sparkle with new colors.

Of hatchback Hyundai i30 made a "sheep in wolf's clothing"

"Hot" hatchback Hyundai i30 N with a 250-horsepower motor, which can not influence the price. The Korean company went to meet the buyers who are not able to pay for a new engine, but to show off in the hot-hatch still want.

Version known as Hyundai i30 N Line differs from the standard modifications in the main design of the exterior and interior. A new aerodynamic package made in the style of "charged" i30 N, the dimension of the wheels grew to R18, and in the interior there will be sports seats, a new steering wheel, trimmed in perforated leather, metal pedal pads, and the like.

Despite the distinctively sporty entourage, Hyundai i30 N Line will be equipped with the same engines as the usual hatchbacks.

The list will include 1.4-liter gasoline turbo engine with 140 HP and 242 Nm and a diesel engine 1.6-liter that develops 136 HP and 280 Nm of torque.

Meanwhile, one entourage, Hyundai still did not stop. Individual dignity, i30 N Line should be upgraded for improved handling suspension, and engine response to gas pedal made more "alive". In addition, this version of the hatchback will be powered by a more powerful brake mechanisms.

How Hyundai i30 N Line will be more expensive than conventional hatchbacks and cheaper than a full-fledged hot-hatch i30 N, not yet reported.

Bosch is involved in this project, a mechatronics and software, and there is a known Nvidia partner responsible for the chips and software to artificial intelligence algorithms.

Recently, Daimler announced that it will be the first international manufacturer, who will lead the experimental drones of the fourth level on the streets of Beijing. And now daimlerbenz told about an even more ambitious project: in conjunction with Bosch, they intend to organize the Autonomous Shuttle service (levels four and five, that is, the maximum) on a few selected roads in California, particularly in San Francisco and Silicon valley.

The drones will receive a combination of cameras, radars, ultrasonic sensors and lidar. By the way, to debug as iron, and software company Daimler recently took on the road in different countries of the prototypes, which are mostly led drivers. However, in this automatic collecting gigabytes of data about the environment.

Decision-making in UAVs will answer a set of multiple control units with a total capacity of hundreds of trillions of operations per second. The authors emphasize that in the first place for their safety. It should provide a “redundant architecture”, and parallel computing.

To manage the separation of Daimler Mobility Services. The experiment, apparently, will begin with the vans V-class, however, worked out for them technology can be extended to other models, capable of becoming Autonomous minibuses and taxis.

In addition to checking the actual Autonomous cars in real traffic with ordinary passengers partners want to debug a tight integration between all services mobility on demand, owned by Daimler, namely networking Mytaxi, Car2Go and Moovel. It is assumed that people will use different modes of transport, including Autonomous cars.

In the end, all efforts will be a special program that is able to choose the best option travel. All the planning, of course, will be done from your smartphone. This should be implemented the principle of “the car arrives to the client” not “client car”, as now occurs in conventional networks of car sharing. Unmanned service Daimler in California will be put into trial production in the second half of 2019.
