A function of the interior rearview mirror that few people know about

Not all drivers, especially beginners, are aware of the full functionality of modern interior rear-view mirrors. Let’s talk about not the most obvious possibilities of such elements.

A couple of decades ago, it was customary to equip cars with central salon rear-view mirrors with almost no functionality. The driver could only turn the element up or to the side so that the headlights of the cars going behind would not be blinded. Today, in almost every model of salon mirrors, such a manipulation does not need to be done.

It is enough to move the lever for switching day / night positions at the bottom of the mirror body, and the problem of annoying headlights from the neighbors in the back will be solved. What happens when you switch the latch like this? In night mode, an additional reflector is connected, which dampens the strength of the reflection. The clarity of the image in the mirror is only slightly reduced.

However, in reality, the described mechanical shift design is not the most advanced to date. An electrochromic mirror using the principle of electronic ordering of liquid crystals can be recommended as a more expensive alternative. Such devices are often called auto-dimming mirrors.

Automatic dimming of the mirror avoids the so-called Traskler effect (as a result of dazzling headlights, the driver sees a “blind” spot, into which part of the objects on the road enters), darkening the mirror surface using the process of electrochromism.

The technology works like this – a light sensor is integrated into the electrochromic salon mirror, which detects glare and sends a signal to the electronics, which is located inside the mirror housing. Further, in the process of electrochromism, the reflective surface of the mirror is darkened, and the Traskler effect is reduced to zero or significantly minimized. Today, thanks to the reduction in the cost of this technology, auto-dimming mirrors are installed not only on premium, but also on many mass cars. In addition, such devices, adapted to certain models, can be purchased additionally and installed instead of a regular mirror.

We add that in addition to electrochromic salon mirrors, there are models with an anti-reflective coating on the market (there are blue, gold and other shades). The anti-glare layer prevents the driver from being dazzled by the light from headlights, city lights, architectural lighting, and so on. Such mirrors do not completely eliminate glare, but they significantly reduce their intensity. Here you need to beware and avoid previously low-quality products with a cheap anti-reflective layer. Such crafts can either filter out the headlights not efficiently enough, or distort objects visible in the mirror.

In addition, there are brightened interior mirrors on the market today, which are suitable for installation in vehicles with tinted rear windows. This is another effective option to reduce glare from the headlights of cars following behind. Illuminated mirrors will allow the driver to strain his eyes less while driving in the dark and are recommended for those drivers who prefer to do dull tinted glass in the rear of the car.

The most reliable three-year-old cars are named. Not Toyota

Experts analyzed the condition of cars aged 3 to 4 years and compiled a list of the most reliable ones based on the results of inspections carried out in the first half of 2021. The research (at the disposal of “RG”) was carried out among tens of thousands of cars that were exhibited on the CarPrice platform.

Under the reliability of the car, each of the car owners understands something of their own. Someone thinks that reliability is the trouble-free operation of the engine, gearbox and numerous electronics.

Others are sure that the safety of the body, the long absence of corrosion and the ability to survive minor accidents without any problems are the most important thing. And the rest can be replaced. Well, someone is sure that only the combination of all these factors is reliability.

Therefore, analysts have prepared three ratings at once. The first one is the consolidated rating of the reliability of “three-year-olds”, compiled by the sum of the parameters “operation of components and assemblies” and “state of the body”.

Nissan Qashqai II and Toyota RAV4 IV (restyling) became the leaders of the consolidated rating. The difference between the cars is only 0.01. The reliable design, together with the calm driving style of the first owner, guarantees the future owner several years of car operation without any problems.

In third place is Hyundai Creta, in fourth – Volkswagen Tiguan II, in fifth – Ford Kuga II (restyling). The top 10 also includes the Skoda Octavia III (restyling) and four Kia models. These are Optima IV (restyling), Sportage IV, Cerato III (restyling), Soul II (restyling).

For those who consider the technical condition of the machine the main parameter of reliability, the experts have compiled top-10 models with the highest scores on the scale of “technical condition of units” – operation of the engine, gearbox, electrics, electronics, as well as suspension – in total, each car is checked for 150 parameters.

The leader was the Kia Cerato III (restyling), which scored the highest score in dozens of inspections. Analysts note that it is rare when all inspected cars have such an assessment for a variety of technical parameters. They are followed by the leaders of the consolidated reliability rating – Nissan Qashqai II and Toyota RAV4 IV (restyling).

Next are the Kia Soul II (restyling), Mitsubishi Outlander III (restyling 2), Kia Sportage IV, Volkswagen Tiguan II, Hyundai Creta I, Skoda Octavia III (restyling), Kia Optima IV (restyling).

For those who care about how the car body behaves in Russian conditions after three years of operation, a top 10 cars with the highest scores for “body condition”… The cars that scored the highest points in this rating are distinguished not only by the excellent condition of the body parts, but also by the trouble-free driving of their owners.

On the first line of Hyundai Creta, Volkswagen Tiguan II and Ford Kuga II (restyling) are in the top three. The top 10 also includes Nissan Qashqai II, Toyota RAV 4 IV (restyling), Renault Kaptur, Skoda Octavia III (restyling), Kia Optima IV P (restyling). Lada Vesta, Ford Focus III (restyling).

It is noteworthy that Lada Vesta is in ninth place. Early cars were often chipped on the hood, fenders and bumpers. Today, after three years of operation, this car shows results at the level of models in more expensive price categories.

“All over the world, three-year-olds are the most coveted segment of the used car market. After three years of operation, the price of such cars is significantly reduced, and their technical condition is still at the level of a new car. That is why there is a real hunt for good“ three-years ”.

Every year we check tens of thousands of cars and know the strengths and weaknesses of each model. It should also be borne in mind that after three to four years, the characteristics of the character and driving style of their owners begin to appear.

A powerful car provokes dynamic and even aggressive driving, which often leads to engine and gearbox wear. Conversely, small family crossovers after three years rarely have high mileage or major body damage. The combination of the work of engineers and the driving style forms the portrait of any used car. Each car is unique and has its own story. I hope our statistics will allow many future car owners to make the right choice, “comments Matthieu Lannegrand, CEO of CarPrice, on the results of the study.

A BOLA – Mozambique with 22 deaths and more than 2500 cases in the last 48 hours (Mozambique)

Mozambique registered 22 deaths and 2597 positive cases of Covid-19 in the last two days, Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Tuesday there was a record of cases of infection by the new coronavirus. In all, 1458 people were diagnosed with the disease, with 1139 cases on Wednesday. As for the number of human losses, there were 11 in each of the days. It should be noted that a total of 934 people have already lost their lives in the country since the beginning of the pandemic.

This exponential rise in the number of infections makes Mozambique, according to a report published Tuesday, by the Tony Blair Institute, the African country that registered the biggest increase in Covid-19 cases in the last two weeks. The authors of the study “Africa’s Perfect Storm” concluded that, in that period, Mozambique had an increase of 172 percent.

A BOLA – Churrasqueira issues a statement: «We are not related to Luís Filipe Vieira at all» (Justice)

In addition to Luís Filipe Vieira, the Judiciary Police also arrested José António dos Santos, who earned the epithet of Rei dos Frangos. Name used by a steakhouse based in Leiria, which was forced to issue a statement.

In the note, Rei dos Frangos emphasizes that she has nothing to do with Luís Filipe Vieira, president of Benfica, and leaves an unusual outburst at the end: «Our managers are even Sporting supporters!»

Read the release in full:

«Once again, our company Churrasqueiras Rei dos Frangos, Lda, headquartered in Leiria and with 19 take-away barbecues in Portugal, goes public to defend its good name and emphasize that IN NOTHING has to do with the metaphorical circus “ of the king of chickens”, nor with any of the people involved in this group of plays that have been in the news since 2019.

For those who want to understand a little better the difference between reality and carelessly made news, we explain, point by point:

1) None of our stores or our headquarters were searched by any investigation center or public security institution. IN NO WAY are we related to Mr. Luís Filipe Vieira or with any of the companies that originate the various journalistic pieces.

2) our company is called Churrasqueiras Rei dos Frangos, Lda. and has rights over the trademark “Rei dos Frangos”. This is the name used in our stores to describe our service and our products. We want and must fight for the good name of this brand and this company that has been in existence since 1989.

3) one of the manager of Churrasqueiras Rei dos Frangos, Lda. is called João Carlos Paiva Santos. IN NO EVENT is our manager related to Mr. Luís Filipe Vieira or to any of the companies that give rise to the reported business.

4) Grupo Valoro SGPS, SA. its administrator is Mr. José António dos Santos, the so-called “king of chickens” by the media. Between João and José there is a whole different name, which should have been used by countless journalistic pieces to be able to discern him, but many times they failed to do so.

5) There is and was not any business relationship between our company and Mr. José António dos Santos beyond the natural commercial interaction between supplier and buyer: Avibom, one of the companies of the Valouro Group, sells raw material to Churrasqueiras Rei dos Frangos , specifically, chicken. Because it’s chicken roasting that we understand, stocks and SADs… not so much.

Note, from now on, the difference in treatment between the individual Luís Filipe Vieira, always addressed by his name, and the individual José António dos Santos, who is never addressed by his name or by the companies he manages, but by a much shorter metaphor and elegant, the “king of chickens”. And this is where, unfortunately, we are called “out there”.

These days, no newspaper even bothers to mention Valouro GSPS or any other company duly owned and/or managed by the man who is described as a friend of Mr. Luís Filipe Vieira. Today, we have customers, suppliers and friends asking, calling and commenting consecutively, without being able to distinguish an overly widespread metaphor, stunned about what (not) is happening.

In no way do we want to limit the right to opinion or press freedom. But on several occasions, since 2020, we have alerted different members of the press about the enormous damage to the company’s reputation and the serious misunderstandings that they would be creating for the many people who work here every day.

As a final note, we even explain more: our managers are even Sporting supporters!»

New Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae, performance, prices and photos of the supercar- Corriere.it

Evolve and improve again, for one last time. To celebrate a model and make it immortal. But also to mark the end of an era and look to a future that will have different connotations but cannot – and must not – ignore the values ​​and history of a brand with inexhaustible strength.

This is the essence of the new Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae, Mid-engined V12 which, as the name clearly indicates, will be the last “pure”, that is powered by a non-electrified version of that unmistakable V12 which has been the heart of Sant’Agata supercars since 1963.



The name in Latin is consistent with the Cor Tauri strategic plan recently launched by the new CEO Stephan Wilkelmann, which paved the way clearly: from now to 2022 models that will celebrate the combustion engine, by the end of 2024 the complete electrification of the range and in the second half of the decade a fourth, new product line developed around a model full electric. The Aventador Ultimae, in short, is the swan song of an architecture that has made the history of the world of engines, an object whose survival is certainly not in doubt and which will nevertheless be integrated by electrical supports just to cope with the (obtuse) standards, as well as to improve their performance and efficiency.

In this latest version, the 6.5-liter V12 reaches 780 horsepower at 8,500 rpm, power that allows you to reach 355 kilometers per hour. The four-wheel drive allows you to reach 100 times from standstill in 2.8 seconds, while to get to 200 per hour you need 8.7. Despite the physical dimensions that are anything but negligible, the carbon monocoque frame and the four steering wheels will make driving the Aventador Ultimae immediate, reassuring and intuitive, but in fact the LP 780-4 Ultimae – this is the exact name – condenses the best of all the Aventador models seen in the ten-year history of the model, namely the technology and performance of the Super Veloce Jota, the usability of an Aventador S and the stylistic purity of the iconic model of the decade.

From an aesthetic point of view, in addition to those rear air intakes that make Countach so much, the Ultimae does everything to emphasize its uniqueness (painting alone requires 40 hours of work) with 18 exclusive two-tone body variants and can be further customized through the Ad Personam program. Lamborghini will produce 350 Aventador Ultimae coupé and 250 Roadster starting in October. The price? The official one has not been fixed but should start at around 410,000 euros.
