Black Ice G37

Some of us may have heard of something called black ice. Thin layers of ice that you don’t realize is there till it’s too late. You only realize that you’ve hit it when it’s usually too late and you’re rolling sideways off the side of the road. I’ve never seen it personally since we’re in LA so to me, it’s all a myth… sort of a like a unicorn.

Now you see here a Black G37. Being involved in the car show scene, I can tell you that the Infiniti Class is one of the most competitive classes out there. So many quality Infiniti builds are out there so it’s hard to tell one from the next aside from color and wheels. Especially since nowadays, shows are full of hardparkers. They get some wheels and stance their car out and they think they have a show car. You need the full package. Jared’s car is  a great example of one car that you stands out.

Authentic Bride Gias/Stradia Seats

The Bride Gias and Stradia seats are among some of the best quality seats on the market among the tuner crowd. We all know they they aren’t exactly low dollar and because of this the market is flooded with cheap, low quality made knock offs. It’s harder to tell the authentic from the fake ones apart but here are a common things I see. And remember there is no such thing as authentic Bride Canada or Bride Taiwan, there are only fakes if the seats are labeled as that type. Also, if the pricing is too good to be true, it probably is. These seats list for abotu $2000 each. and should not cost less than half that for a pair of them.
