Purolator Filters, a division of MANN+HUMMEL, received three Automotive Communication Awards at AAPEX 2022 in Las Vegas.

The categories included Best Article/Blog/Content Piece-Technical; Best Video; and Best Merchandising. Women in Auto Care (WiAC), an Auto Care Association community, presented the awards.

“Our goal is to continuously inform and educate while also entertain consumers and customers alike on the importance of choosing premium filters,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing automotive market – North America at MANN+HUMMEL Purolator Filters LLC. “We are honored to earn recognition for these efforts from WiAC, an organization dedicated to the empowerment and advancement of women in the auto care industry.” 

Best Article/Blog/Content Piece

The award-winning Purolator article highlights the importance of full-synthetic oil-filter media with regard to filtration quality. Originally placed in late 2021, the article generated significant engagement and was highlighted in other digital publications in early 2022. The article showcases PurolatorBOSS oil filters, which feature SmartFUSION technology, and are engineered to be the ideal match for full-synthetic oils. Noting this, the article gives customers a deeper insight into the advantages of full-synthetic-media oil filters and passes along useful tips for technicians to share with their customers.  

Best Merchandising

When PurolatorBOSS premium cabin air filters with Febreze Freshness were introduced, Purolator created a freestanding point-of-sale floor display to promote the product. The display contains high-end graphics and a quality finish with an application guide to assist consumers in finding the right filter for them.

The display also includes an informative take-home pamphlet for consumers to discover the role a cabin air filter plays in their vehicle. Many buyers gave significant feedback, noting the value of the Febreze partnership, and in turn, creating a dialogue that has led to significant purchases.

Best Video

Purolator also was honored with an award for creating a video that emphasizes the needs and concerns of consumers regarding clean air and vehicle performance. Filtering virus aerosols, dirt, debris, pollen and more, the video highlights PurolatorBOSS as a premium cabin air filter to rid these pollutants from a customer’s vehicle.

The video proved successful, as it garnered hundreds of thousands of views online and millions of impressions on digital TV. Gaining strong engagement on social media, Purolator’s video has continued to inform audiences on the importance of air decontamination. 

The Women in Auto Care Awards Ceremony recognizes companies and agencies that provide automotive information through outstanding advertising, marketing, and public relations efforts. The awards cover several business-to-consumer and business-to-business categories. Recipients received recognition during the Women in Auto Care Automotive Communications Awards Ceremony during AAPEX.

      In the April 2020 issue of AMN/Counterman, Tom Dayton shared some of his favorite car movies – an eclectic list that runs the gamut from “Mad Max” to “Stroker Ace.” Now it’s my turn.
      To ratchet up the fun level (for me, at least), I’m expanding the list to include TV shows.
      “The Dukes of Hazzard”
      I’m not talking about the movie here. I’m talking about the show that aired on CBS from 1979 to 1985 – the show that rocked my world when I was a kid. This one was my absolute favorite until “The A-Team” came on the scene.
      As far as I was concerned, “The Dukes of Hazzard” had it all: simple plots, good music, loveable characters … and gratuitous car chases. Every episode was a satisfying mix of burning rubber, banjo pickin’ and fast cars flying down dirt roads in an ever-present cloud of dust. Often, those cars literally took flight – because every bridge in Hazzard County was out.
      Sure, there was a lot to love about this show. But the thing that kept me coming back every week was the orange 1969 Dodge Charger known as the General Lee. I couldn’t get enough of that car. I remember riding around the neighborhood on my bike, pretending I was in the General Lee, hooting and hollering every time I jumped a curb, like I was one of the Duke boys.
      According to IMDb, it’s estimated that between 256 and 321 General Lees were used during the filming of “The Dukes of Hazzard” TV series.
      “Replacing the police sedans was easy, but replacing the General Lee was much harder because Dodge stopped making the Charger,” the IMDb website explains. “It got to the point where if producers saw a Charger on the street, they would approach the owner and offer to buy it on the spot.”
      “Seinfeld”
      Season 7, Episode 20
      When it comes to “Seinfeld,” there are plenty of memorable moments from the show’s magnificent 173-episode run. Recently, I rediscovered a hidden gem: “The Bottle Deposit” from Season 7. Like every episode, this one is built on a series of bad coincidences and bizarre plot twists that converge in unexpected and hilarious ways. 
      Jerry’s opening monologue provides some foreshadowing for the upcoming episode, when he riffs on the quirks of taking your car to a repair shop. Later, we learn that Kramer and Newman borrowed Jerry’s car to go shopping at Price Club (now Costco). Why didn’t they just take Kramer’s car? “Steering wheel fell off,” Cosmo confesses. “I don’t know where it is.”
      When Jerry drops off Elaine after driving her to an auction – where she overpaid for a set of John F. Kennedy’s golf clubs – his Saab is clunking and clattering, and the engine is smoking. He lifts up the hood, only to discover that Kramer and Newman left their groceries in there because they ran out of space in the car.
      Jerry is understandably upset, and he dreads the prospect of taking the car to his obsessive mechanic, Tony – played by the inimitable Brad Garrett (best-known for his role on “Everybody Loves Raymond”). “Have you been rotating the tires?” Tony grills Jerry. “You don’t try to – you do it! Fifty-one percent of all turns are right turns, you know that?”
      After Tony has a chance to inspect the vehicle, he calls Jerry back to the shop for a heart-to-heart talk.
      “Don’t lie to me Jerry,” he says. “You know that motor oil you’re putting in there? It’s from one of those quickie-lube places, isn’t it? Jerry, motor oil is the lifeblood of a car. You put in a low-grade oil, you can damage vital engine parts. See this gasket? I have no confidence in that gasket!”
      Tony proposes a “major overhaul” of the engine – provided that Jerry will commit to following the recommended service intervals and keep the speed under 60 miles per hour for a while. When Jerry decides that he’d like to take the car to another shop, Tony absconds with Jerry’s beloved Saab. Afterward, a police detective who interviews Jerry tells him he sees this kind of thing all the time.
      “The mechanic forms an emotional attachment,” the detective explains. “He thinks he’s gonna lose the car, he panics, he does something rash.”
      More Ideas? I’m stopping here for two reasons. One, I’m out of room. And two, I’d like to keep this series going. If you have an automotive-themed movie or TV show (or song, Broadway play, etc.) that you’d like to add to the list, drop us a line at [email protected]

      CRP Automotive offers Rein Automotive TechSelect Turbo Kits (CRP P/N TRK0007) for some of the most popular BMW applications on the road today. These kits are a solution for turbocharger replacement service and include all of the hoses, gaskets, and hardware necessary to complete the job quickly and efficiently.
      Developed with technicians in mind, Rein Automotive TechSelect Turbo Kits include the most recent turbo hose versions, and include all brackets, hardware, and necessary sealing components for installation. This allows shops to order all of the components needed to complete a turbocharger service by using one part number.
      Rein Automotive TechSelect Turbo Kits are available for popular BMW applications that use the N54 and N55 engines, including the 335i, 335i xDrive, 335is and 335xi, from model years 2007-2018. Additional coverage is available for vehicles with N20 and N26 engines including the 320i and 328i from 2012-2018, among others.
      “We developed these TechSelect kits to make turbocharger replacement easier,” noted David Hirschhorn, CRP Automotive brand director. “As these vehicles reach higher mileage, the turbocharger system begins to wear out and most of the system components can’t be reused. Our TechSelect Turbo Kits provide a one-stop solution, giving technicians confidence in knowing that they have all the necessary parts to complete the job and avoid comebacks.”
