German automotive supplier Hella has developed yet another type of headlight. Beyond halogen, xenon and others, Hella has produced a headlamp that works completely off of LEDs, or light-emitting diodes (LEDs are what make the little lights on the front of your computer glow).
Debuting on the 2008 Cadillac Escalade Platinum, Hella's LED headlights offer customers several key benefits over traditional headlamps. To help explain a little about this new lighting system is Hella's North American president, Dr. Martin Fischer. Also, David Schiavone, Product Manager for the Cadillac Escalade gives us an in-depth walk around the new Platinum Escalade.
Road Test: Audi S5
The coupe is back at Audi (never mind the TT, which has had two doors since
its introduction in '98). The new A5 and S5 are coupes in the traditional
sense -- two doors and a long, low body.
To showcase this stylish new car Audi invited us down to Washington D.C.
for a rousing drive of the V8-powered S5. The rural roads of country
Virginia really gave us a chance to stretch the S5's legs and work its
chassis through the narrow, winding roads that cut through the area's
While we were in the capital we also managed to score an interview with
Carter Balkcom, Audi's A5/S5 product manager.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Escalade: The Full Size
Luxury SUV still has it going these days, even with sky rocketing gas
prices and dismal fuel economy there is still consumers who want these
dinosaurs. The Escalade is one of the mammoths in this segment and is one
of the best selling ones. Power in the Escalade comes from a 6.2 L V8 made
into a 6-Speed Automatic with 4-Wheel Drive. On the interior you will find
a very luxurious cabin with nice rich materials and a great amount of room
up front and the rear (2nd Row Only). We love the long list of standard
features the Escalade offers and we love the nice gusty V8, However with
that heavy duty V8 made exclusively for the Escalade, it has very low fuel
economy, however every full size SUV has dismal fuel economy. Compared to
the Escalade's competitors the Navigator is too pricey and doesn't offer
the features the Cadillac offers, however we really love the Infiniti QX56
and we think it's a little more inviting on the interior and has more rich
materials. Is the Escalde worth purchasing now? Well it depends if you
really love the Escalade and you're a Cadillac enthusiast and you need a
Escalade soon. However otherwise the 2013 Escalade can wait as the next
generation will be coming out less than you can run to your nearest grocery

How To Restore Headlights - EricTheCarGuy
I've probably been asked about doing this video more than any other. The
Subaru makes a prime candidate to test this out. I did make some mistakes
when it came to using the buffer so try and learn from those by not using
the terry cloth attachment and also making sure you don't stay in one place
too long, otherwise stick to the directions and do stuff by hand, do it
fast enough and it will be good cardio.
