European Union passes new C02 laws

After watching the new episode of Top Gear last night, we learned that the EU has passed new CO2 emission laws that may hinder some auto manufacturers.

The new rules stipulate that auto manfucturers must maintain an average CO2 emission level across their fleet as a whole. Simply put, if you have a big motor`d sports car that is heavy on emissions and a small compact eco friendly car from the same manufacturer, then their average will be somewhere in the middle and may comply.

For example, manufacturers like Aston Martin or Ferarri may have difficulty in complying because they only produce sports coupes and sports saloons.

In response to this, Aston has come out with a compact (almost kei) car that is low on emissions. It looks like a Toyota Yaris with Aston badging. This is bad news for such auto makers. They have built their reputations on their sports cars and now must comply by creating lower cost vehicles that are not part of their expertise. This may diminish their brand which spells trouble.

The new regulations do not take effect until 2012 (first stage) and continue well into the new decade. It will be interesting to see who comes out with what over the next 10 years.

New BMW M3 paint

BMW’s new matte Frozen Gray paint is truly an awesome color but it has its flaws. Particularly, that you can’t do just about anything with it.

The 30 new owners of this rare piece of art were made to sign contracts with BMW stating that they would not wax or polish their paint, wash it a certain way, never try to touch it up by a non BMW trained body shop, etc etc. The list goes on an on. This pain(t) is more finicky that a 6 year old on a long car ride.

– Never polish or wax the frozen gray paint as it could lead to a glossy surface.

– If washing your frozen gray M3 in a automatic car wash, choose a car wash that does not apply vehicle wax.

– Rinse the M3 with high pressure water to remove dirt before sending it through the automatic car wash to avoid scratches from sand, dust and other micro-particles.

– Remove bugs, bird poo, tree sap, tar, fuel spills or oil immediately using a soft sponge.
Avoid strong rubbing while cleaning the frozen paint. BMW sells suitable products for maintaining the frozen paint at your local dealer.

– Repairs to the paint (scratches, dents, etching) must be completed by a BMW-trained body shop. Most auto body shops will not be capable of repairing the frozen gray paint.

The agreement also goes on to state how BMW will not be responsible for damage to paint (thus no warranty coverage) under just about any imaginable circumstance.

Tip to BMW Matte Frozen Gray owners: Put aside the money your saving on not washing your car for when you need a new $9000 paint job.

Buy a Corvette

Story from Jalopnik.com

Way back in January we broke the news GM planned to offer a build-your-own engine program (like this) for the Corvette ZR1. Now it’s official. Corvette buyers can choose to build the engine for their very own ZR1 or Z06.

Remember when we hand-built a Corvette ZR1 engine at GM’s Performance Build Center? Now GM’s announced customers can do it too. Corvette buyers can now opt to help GM save money on labor cost have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by building the engine destined for their very own ZR1 or Z06.

Just like when we built a 638HP Corvette ZR1 engine, each customer for what GM’s dubbing the “Corvette Engine Build Experience” will be accompanied and guided by one of the experienced craftsman on the line in building the engine that’ll go in their car. Basically, the buyer will be doing the work and a GM tech will make sure nothing gets screwed up. Available for assembly is either the ZR1’s 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 or the Corvette Z06’s 7.0-liter naturally aspirated, 505 HP LS7.
