Hey Guys

Have you noticed the little bright thing outside? Yep, the sun is finally back, the birds start to beep and do you know what the best thing about this certain time is? Driving a Convertible! Yiha! \o/

Transparo (you might remember them from the 1st Parking Championship in late 2012) just released a study on which german cities love to drive their Convertibles the most. And here is the result:

With a total 4,6% Munich is definitely the Convertible-Capital of Germany. Right behind there is Cologne with 4,5%. On the rhird place is Hamburg with 3,6%. Frankfurt and Bremen both like Convertibles for 3,3% of all total vehicle registrations. Behind there are Essen (2,7%), Stuttgart (2,6%), Dusseldorf (2,3%) and Berlin (2,1%).

Results by Region

Hamburg 3.61
Saarland 3.26
Rhineland-Palatinate 3.01
Hesse 2.95
NRW 2.94

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
