Lighting and digital supplier Hella will show its Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system that gives the driver a warning signal before an unplanned movement in the lane.


The LDW recognizes the position of the vehicle relative to the lane markings and compares it to expected motorist intentions, using changes from the steering and use of indicators and brake pedal.

From the lighting field, Hella will show white light emitting diodes for front lighting which are compact and decrease power consumption. Hella also will present a Nighttime Driver system to simulate.

Honeywell


Honeywell's Garrett division, which supplies motor boosting systems, will present its new generation Variable Nozzle Turbine technologies designed for diesel and gasoline applications. Rapid growth of this technology is expected from the European turbocharger market throughout the upcoming few years. Honeywell Sensing and Control, a switch and sensor maker, will also show its products.


Hydro Aluminium


Norway's Hydro Aluminium will show its front-end structure for the BMW 5 series; engine blocks to the next generation of General Motors' V-6 gasoline engine, which includes pre-cast water lines and petroleum lines; and fresh brazing technologies for easier heat exchanger production. Hydro, which obtained German aluminum firm VAW last year, is the leading European supplier of aluminum automotive parts.


Inalfa


Inalfa Roof Systems will present three of its latest developments: the brand new roof systems for your Citroen C3 Pluriel, GMC Envoy and BMW X3.


The business has four European sites which create tilt/sliding roofs, sunroofs, spoiler roofs and high sliders.


Johnson Controls


Johnson Controls will present its Sensory notion, which it calls for a fresh approach to product development based on engaging all of the senses. JCI may also show its Leap automotive seating products, that can be based on the ergonomic features of an office chair.


Leap was developed in cooperation with Steelcase, a joint venture which JCI declared together with the office furniture maker in the Detroit auto show in January.


Johnson Controls will show a fresh inside ambient lighting notion developed with lighting specialists at Philips, along with a smart doorway panel using translucent substrate stuff.


JCI has enlarged its selection of electronics products with fresh cockpit instruments for luxury vehicles and digital park distance control.


The speakers may be installed to the substrates of their doors, says Johnson Controls, and use the substrate material to transport sound round the vehicle. The horizontal speakers create conventional speakers superfluous, said a Johnson Controls spokeswoman, and as there is not any demand for holes in the doors, the amount of external noise which enters the vehicle is reduced.

Kolbenschmidt Pierburg


German piston and motor system supplier Kolbenschmidt Pierburg will show a brand new electric coolant pump along with a variable-output oil pump with consumption dependent controller.


The business is presenting a whole intake manifold module.


Kostal


Privately-owned German controls supplier Kostal will show its present technology for sensors, switch panels, body system digital control units and approval systems. The 91-year-old firm also will show roof, door and steering column modules.


Siemens VDO Automotive


This feature reduces the amount of components from the cockpit, simultaneously lowering the weight. The technologies also could be readily altered.


Siemens VDO also will show the second generation of its own tire pressure monitoring system. The new system consists of a batteryless fixed sensor incorporated from the tire.


From the motor systems place, Siemens VDO will present a brand new piezo-based fuel injection system for gasoline engines with direct injection for the first time, the business says.


Takata


Takata also will present a brand new mechatronic pretensioning electrical motor to get a motorized reversible seat belt.


Tenneco


Tenneco will present the additive diesel particulate filter it supplies to PSA/Peugeot-Citroen; a fresh fabricated manifold that offers a faster light-off to meet new regulations for emissions and weight; a fabricated manifold converter; along with a hot spun (a fresh canning process) converter.

Tenneco may also display the back exhaust system it supplies to your newest Volkswagen Golf platform.


Valeo


The French firm has reserved a marquee outside Hall 8 to demonstrate the system.


Another technologies Valeo will show include light emitting diodes for front lighting; a development to solve the issue of the elevated demands of air conditioning through stop-and-start driving; a brand new engine cooling theory; and fresh apartment wipers targeted in the aftermarket.


Vibracoustic


Visitors will see and sense that the impact of Vibracoustic's new seats while sitting in among these and watching a short movie.


Vibracoustic says that the ride is going to be presented with high-energy projectors to provide visitors the feeling that they're sitting at a transparent vehicle.

Vibracoustic will share its place with sister firm NOK Mechatronics.


Webasto displays second Idea


Webasto will show a concept car, the Webasto Welcome two, a follow-up to the Welcome 1, that was shown at the 2001 IAA in Frankfurt.


The idea features a sizable outdoor panorama roof, a fresh generation of Webasto's parking heater (Thermo Top V, using a Venturi burner to decrease weight and supply a more streamlined exterior) and fresh flexible luggage compartment idea.


Webasto, of Stockdorf, Germany, says that the car has "a slightly American sense."


ZF


ZF Friedrichshafen will show a development study of a brand new seven-speed automated transmission based on its six-speed selection. The German-based company's transmission features a moist starting clutch using dual-mass flywheel instead of a converter.


The omission of this converter means the transmission's housing is 20mm shorter than ZF's six-speed automatic.


ZF has a customer for its transmission, which required the shorter box. The transmission has been designed to take care of 600Nm of torque, and its sporty and spontaneous gearshifts make it especially well-suited for contemporary diesel engines.


ZF's powertrain and suspension division, ZF Sachs, is expected to show the continuous damping control system which will be used to the new Opel Astra.


It is the first CDC program in a mid sized automobile, based on ZF Sachs.

Mercedes, 2018 SI Coupe
Country flag
When I was looking for a new car, coming from a Mercedes CLK350, the obvious choice was a C Coupe. I saw GenX Civics in the street and I liked the look. I started to look into the Civics and I liked what I read especially in Honda reliability and high resale value.

Since I always prefer the coupe, I tried the Touring but did not like the CVT. I was stubborn and I test drove the Civics 3 times (Touring and HB) but unfortunately, I could not make myself to like the cars. IMO, Civic CVT is a capable as a daily commute but lacks the fun factor.

I was about to give up on Civics and I read here about the SI. I went to testdrive the SI and it changed my mind completely. It was a hoot to drive and it reminded me of the 1999 Prelude I owned before the MB. I waited 1-2 months for the 2018 model and finally took delivery a few weeks ago.

So far my SI is great and the 6MT is a lot of fun to drive. Sure it does not have the tank-like solid feel of a MB, it makes up with its agility. Sure the materials and fit and finish of the SI are inferior to the C coupe, the OTD price of the SI is $33K CAN vs $76K CAN of the C Coupe.

Maybe I was spoiled by MB, ie: I am picky and detail-oriented (borderline OCD). I can say in no uncertain term that the Civic SI is an excellent car. In fact, many of friends wondered why I switched from a MB to a Civic, they all understood after they rode in my car.

You're coming to a website dedicated to the Civic and asking if it's a nice car or not... ;)

Civics are great cars whether they're new or not. If taken care of, they require very little maintenance. They get great fuel economy and are easy to drive. They usually look good; the 10th gens (2016+) are especially sharp.

For a starter car, get a used POS that needs constant care and maintenance that you can do yourself in your driveway. LEARN about what makes cars tick so that any garage mechanics in the future can't bamboozle you into unnecessary procedures.

YASSSSSSS

The best assessment of the PT Cruiser I have ever seen is here. As with many things, it took time to see the real meaning of the PT:

The 10th gen Civic sucks ass. Worse car ever. Ok, I'm kidding. It's a great car with nice performance and good MPG.

But you're asking people at a Civic fan forum if it's a good car so what else would you expect us to say? ;)
