Royal Purple recently added oil filters for diesel vehicles to their line of premium oil filters. Royal Purple’s micro-glass technology oil filters provide superior particle removal, high performance and optimized flow for maximum performance and longer filter life.
Each filter features:

•    100% synthetic micro-glass media with 99% filtration efficiency at 25 microns
•    High performance silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts even in extreme conditions
•    Extra heavy duty rubber base gasket that ensures a leak-free seal
•    Ultra-strength filter housing that can endure higher burst strength than conventional  filters

Royal Purple oil filters allow change intervals to be extended up to 15,000 miles. Vehicles under warranty should follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended oil filter change intervals. While Royal Purple oil filters are fully compatible with all synthetic and conventional oils, Royal Purple recommends using their high performance synthetic motor oil for optimal results.

BEREA, Ohio – It’s time to get your cameras rolling as CORSA Performance Exhausts announces a summer-long video contest that invites you to express why you love CORSA for your car, truck, SUV or boat.

The new contest, which runs from June 15, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2011, allows fans of CORSA exhaust systems to submit a fun, safe video that showcases “How Your CORSA Speaks to You.”  Videos should run 15 seconds to 5 minutes in length and can feature a wide variety of topics, such as a summer road trip, a unique comparison to stock, an exhaust installation or your very own idea for a CORSA commercial.  Have no worries if you don’t own a CORSA exhaust because the contest also allows you to submit a creative video on why you wish you had a CORSA system.

To participate, the videos must first be uploaded to YouTube and then submitted to CORSA as a YouTube link.  CORSA employees will chose three semi-finalists – based on creativity and originality, skill of execution and overall theme – whose videos will be posted to the CORSA website for voting around Oct. 3, 2011.  Each of the three semi-finalists is encouraged to share and promote their video during the voting process.

FULLERTON, CA – Yokohama Tire Corporation has announced the official launch of its all-new, user-centric Web site at www.yokohamatire.com designed to put customers first and their needs, according to Theresa Palang, Yokohama manager of public relations and digital marketing. It is built for engagement, interactivity, education, empowerment with information and positive shopping experience.

Includes a glossary for better understanding of terms related to the characteristics and performance of tires.

–        Tech Lab:  Informs on the technologies that go into the design and manufacture of Yokohama tires, including water evacuation, tread wear, rolling resistance and aerodynamics simulations.

–        Integrated Social Media:  Yokohama’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels are in one convenient place for consumers to post threads or learn what others are saying about Yokohama. Additionally, Yokohama’s proprietary iPad app is made available for download for consumers to take on the go.

–        Content Sharing and Bookmarking:  Consumers researching a product can easily email/print information, or make instant connections with others through a variety of bookmarking and sharing tools that include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Delicious, MSN Messenger, Reddit, Yammer and over 300 additional tools.

To assist the consumer in the decision-making process, shopping tools are also provided, which include:

–        Tire Comparisons:  Side-by-side comparisons are presented for up to three Yokohama tires selected.

–        Dealer Locator:  Multiple points of access provide a gateway anytime during the tire search process to the Dealer Locator, which returns results showing independent tire dealers, auto dealerships, and OE service providers.

Yokohama will also roll out new, stand alone sections on the site, including Motorsports, Sustainability, Commercial Tire and Off-The-Road Tire (OTR).

“The user-centric website with integrated social media channels are only the beginning,” said Palang. “As our customers migrate to other, newer digital platforms in the future we will introduce additional initiatives to make sure we are ever responsive to their preferences and needs.”
