LED lighting has become the norm in car manufacturing over the last ten years. As technology has advanced so has LED technology, and OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) have been a focus of car lighting discussion for a number of years. OLED lights are made from organic, carbon based materials and take the form of a thin, flexible and transparent film. They emit a high-contrast light and are extremely homogeneous in nature, which makes them highly desirable for an aesthetically pleasing finish.
The most difficult challenge associated with technological advancement to date may be for humans to relinquish complete control of the driving experience to technology.

When it comes to spills in your car, there is not much that can more quickly and lead to not-so-pleasant smells developing and lingering in your daily drive. Not to mention unsightly stains that make driving your car less than a dream.

Application of hydrophobic interior protection products for fabrics and regular leather treatments are the best precaution to safeguard your surfaces. This is often an optional extra when you purchase a car, but you can also get a great deal on interior protection at your local hand car wash - often for a fraction of the price that the dealership will sell it to you for.
