Alpina made unique changes to the N63 V8 engine to improve the performance of the BMW X7. In addition to the standard cooling system, features such as water-assisted liquid cooler and improved transmission oil cooler have been added. In addition, he would not like BMW's intercoolers, which he again produced intercoolers for XB7. The exhaust system unique to the XB7 also causes the car to sound more muffled.

Other changes to the exterior design include an Alpina inscription and a unique front hood with larger intakes and a rear bumper with quad exhaust outlets.
Alpina has not changed much in interior design. The main rival of the XB7, Mercedes-Maybach GLS 580, although four-seated, Alpina preferred to leave the XB7 with three rows of seats.

We are accustomed to using wireless updates (OTA) that come at regular intervals for our phones, which (if not always) improve performance and security and make them more efficient.
OTA updates are now coming for cars as the cars turn into computers on all four wheels rather than analog cars that most of us have grown up with. At Tesla, of course, takes the lead in this regard.
Tesla offers practical solutions, sometimes performance enhancing features, with regular OTA updates for its cars for quite some time.
And now the newest OTA released for Model S and Model X improves not only performance, but also thermal efficiency.
The new OTA update will provide 0-60mph acceleration in only 2.3 seconds on Model S and 0-60mph in 2.6 seconds on Model X.
Some may say that the latest updates are Tesla's reaction to the performance of the new Taycan, but whether or not the situation seems to make the Model X and Model X more attractive to those seeking maximum performance.
Apparently, Tesla will be the focus of interest not only for environmentalists who switch to electric cars, but also for speed lovers.

While corona virus ravages the whole world, the most effective solution is defined as not going out on the street. In the event of going out, it is emphasized that you should stay away from public transport. While it seems to be the safest to use your own vehicle to go somewhere in compulsory situations, the cleaning of your vehicle has become a more important issue than ever.
Before the coronavirus epidemic, our special tools, which we use intensively, can turn into a serious bacterial slot due to both internal and external factors.
In this case, how do the experts list the most effective solutions to us? We suggest you to read our article on this subject.
We can list the most important measures you should know about coronavirus and vehicle cleaning as follows;
Areas we touch with
Our hand touches every point inside the vehicle. However, the door handle, the steering wheel and the tailgate are the areas that we mostly contact. Therefore, these parts should be wiped regularly with strong disinfectants.
Air conditioning maintenance and cleaning
Always replace the pollen filter of your air conditioner with a new one.
Clean the air conditioner pollen filter every 3 months. At the very beginning of the season, at least.
When you turn on the air conditioner, the windows are open for the first five minutes. Do not breathe the first air released when the air conditioner is turned on. Especially don't let children breathe!
Seats, upholstery and mats
Fabric materials such as carpets and armchairs are very convenient areas in which bacteria can live. Therefore, they are the places that contain the most viruses and bacteria in the car. Wash your carpets and seats regularly in your car.
Watch out for the glove box!
Many car owners crumple paper, gasoline plugs and food packaging that they do not use and squeeze them into a torpedo. This causes the tiny, airtight glove box to return to a full bacterial nest. Therefore, stop collecting rubbish in the glovebox. Clean this area often.
Remember that even if you take all these measures; viruses or bacteria never completely disappear!
