Honeywell settles patent dispute with BorgWarner

According to Business Week:
Honeywell International Inc. said Monday that it will pay BorgWarner Inc. $32.5 million to resolve a four-year-old patent dispute over auto parts.

The one-time payment gives Honeywell access to BorgWarner's three patents for cast titanium compressor wheels, which are used in turbochargers for commercial vehicle engines. Other terms of the settlement were confidential.
The article doesn't mention the specific patents. But this seems to be a pretty straightforward patent of a physical item, like Apple's patent application for building a better keyboard.
