Busy Bees.

It’s been one week since our shop doors opened and we’ve had a steady stream of cars coming in and out for service, repair, and upgrades.

If you need an oil change or your brakes are almost ready to be replaced, give us a call and set up an appointment.

We can handle all requests. From aftermarket part installs to Timing belts and Oil changes we have the ability to tackle them all.


Painting with Light

Ryan and I went out to try some light painting with his new wheels and his Red R32.

Ryan’s .:R features an H&R Street Performance coil over kit that gets the car grounded while maintaining ride comfort and enhanced performance.

We’ve also installed an APR RSC Catback Exhaust with Diamond Black tips! The pictures make it hard to hear, but trust us, it sounds amazing!

With just a few subtle mods; Euro tail lights, Coil overs, and exhaust, Ryan’s R32 delivers a nice punch… Oh, and there’s also those shiny polished Rotiform wheels from our Project GTI that help with the wow-factor.

GTI in Golf R clothing.

The latest RPI project car to hit the streets is not a Golf R. Sure, it looks like one, but it is in fact a GTI in Golf R guise. Following up from our last GTI project, which focused on the bolt on power upgrades, this GTI was all about cosmetic upgrades.

Keeping with our OEM mantra, we ordered a complete Golf R bodykit from Germany (no ugly side markers).

The GTI also got an H&R Street Performance Coilover kit to get it wound down to the ground and keep the handling the way VW intended. Tight and responsive.

Our friends over at Techtonics Tuning supplied us with a Golf R catback for the GTI to give a bit more of a growl under load and also because the factory tips won’t fit inside the rear valance of the Golf R.

Just because you’re going for form > function doesn’t mean you can’t sometimes do both. A Brembo GT brake kit keeps the stopping power to a maximum while still maintaining all street cred.

A girls outfit is never complete with out the finest shoes money can buy. In this case, a set of Rotiform DUS in full polish do the trick.

Looks aren’t everything though. It’s what’s on the inside that counts. And on the inside we’ve bolted a set of Recaro Sportster CS buckets in matching leather. And don’t forget the matching Recaro child seat.

Whether you’re hard parked at Starbucks or cruising down the strip this GTI turns heads wherever it goes.
