B&B Audioconcepts Green Lights HUGE BENTLEY CUSTOM UPGRADE

The owner of this lovely Bentley drove many miles to specifically acquire B&B Audioconcepts services as he had read many of the Bentley Blogs on the B&B Audioconcepts website and is an avid follower of B&B Audioconcepts Facebook Feed. This was no ordinary visit just for one item or single upgrade, the owner of this Bentley really loved his car and wanted to give it a new lease of life to make it feel like it just came of the Bentley production line. This is the sort of custom upgrades project that B&B Audioconcepts really thrives on and the expertise of the B&B Audioconcepts Team really comes into play on a project of this scale and size. The B&B Audioconcepts Team started with a real must for any Bentley Car which is the Bentley Head Unit Replacement (BENHUR) Dash Conversion Kit using the Kenwood 9 series flagship model double din headunit with a 6.8” HD AV-Receiver/Navigation System with Smartphone Control, WiFi & DAB Radio Built-in.  

B&B Audioconcepts Team used Focal Flax Experts speakers for the front and rear of the Bentley. The Focal Flax speakers were chosen for their pure acoustic performance and the Flax cone producing natural sound quality in the Bentley. The backend of the Bentley Audio system is powered by XFIRE Amplifiers and an 8 inch Subwoofer, these are incredible high quality and high end Car Audio Products. Both these products, Focal and XFIRE , complement each other in this Audio Upgrade for this Bentley. Full soundproofing was provided in the Bentley using Skinz Soundproofing products and all the cables were high end Connections Cables for optimum audio output.

Security Upgrades for the Bentley came in the form of Target Laser Track, Target Blu Eye and Thinkware Q800 Pro front and rear dash cameras. The LaserTrack Flare: the ultimate weapon against laser guns LaserTrack Flare is an innovative multifunctional remote control combined with the most advanced laser speed trap protection-technology for the Bentley. Target Blu Eye is a unique and worldwide patented traffic safety system that warns you in advance of approaching emergency service vehicles. In the UK all the emergency services use Tetra radios and Target Blu Eye will let you know when they are close come day or night. So whilst driving at night, even if the emergency vehicle is not using their lights or sirens, Target Blue will alert you of their presence up to a kilometre radius.

The Bentley also underwent a full Engine Remap for increased performance and economy. The Bentley was remapped using the state of the art 4WD rolling road at Cardiff Remap, (Cardiff Remap is located next to B&B Audioconcepts). A custom exhaust gave the Bentley a more sportier note while still maintaining its image on the road. 

The Bentley alloy wheels were also upgraded with a full Alloy Wheel Refurbishment with a two tone colour effect. The Bentley calipers were coated in special red caliper paint. 

One of the final touches to the Bentley was to restore and to protect the body paint and to give a complete interior and exterior detail. When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra is the pinnacle in paint protection. The Bentley paintwork gets protection from Gtechniq like no other and with a 5 year warranty. The Bentley's leather was professionally cleaned and restored with a full machine polish of all interior Bentley trim. The final result as you can see from the photos is like a factory finish and the Bentley doesnt look a day old in its new refreshed appearance.

Laser Speed Traps On The Increase

Traffic is a worldwide hot issue, which it should be. Governments use various ways in this day and age to check the drivers’ speed. For instance Average Speed Cameras(SPECS), mobile- and fixed radar speed traps and unmarked video cars are being used. Lately the police have increased the use of laser speed guns for speed enforcement. Undoubtedly you have seen a policeman standing next to the road, ‘armed’ with a laser gun. Perhaps you have even been stopped and treated to a significant fine.

LaserTrack Flare for Bentley

LaserTrack Flare is an innovative multifunctional remote control combined with the most advanced laser speed trap protection-technology, which offers you, as a user, many advantages. As a remote control the LaserTrack Flare is allowed to be used anywhere in the world, whereas in countries where the laser speed trap protection is not permitted, you can easily switch it off via our web application. This way there can be no misunderstanding about the way you use your LaserTrack Flare.

 

TARGET BLU EYE: AN EYE FOR SAFETY

Target Blu Eye is a unique and worldwide patented traffic safety system that warns you in advance of approaching emergency service vehicles. In the UK all the emergency services use Tetra radios and Target Blu Eye will let you know when they are close come day or night. So whilst driving at night, even if the emergency vehicle is not using their lights or sirens, Target Blue will alert you of their presence up to a kilometre radius.

Target Blu Eye uses both visual and audible warnings to let you know what’s out there. Within seconds of an emergency vehicle being in the radius, the signal will be activated and the signal strength meter in your vehicle will give you enough warning allowing you move safely out of the way.

 

Target Blu Eye for Bentley

The innovative and new traffic safety system Target Blu Eye consists of a main unit, a control display and an external antenna. The system is based on the Airwave (TETRA) network. If an emergency service, e.g. a police car, is nearby, you will be warned in advance with an acoustic and visual alert. The signal strength meter on the control display allows you to see at first glance whether an emergency vehicle is approaching you or moving away from you.

Gtechniq for Bentley

Crystal Serum Light

Best possible swirl mark and chemical resistance from a prosumer grade product
Incredible gloss
3 to 5 years durability


EXOv4 Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating

Improved durability  
Same great gloss, water and dirt repellency 
Significantly easier to apply

Crystal Serum Light is an excellent DIY, stand-alone coating offering unparalleled gloss and gloss retention through its superb resistance to wash swirls. However, its water repellency falls short of what EXO has to offer. Therefore, if you want the best for your Bentley – remarkable swirl resistance and water repellency, then this kit is for your car.
