We have a special treat for all of our US based viewers! As some of you may heard our friends over at USDM FREAX are doing a special edition featuring yours truly Canibeat.com! Our friends over in japan helped cover our First Class Fitment 2012 show and interviewed our staff (Cristian, Roy & Dave) while they were here.
Due to this being a Japanese publication it might be a tad difficult to find a copy locally so we have worked things out with USDM FREAX to help get all of our fans issues! Simply head on over to our store and purchase a pre-order of the magazine and the moment we get our shipment in we will forward you an issue!

Our friend Dzemo (pronounced Jaymo) is the owner of this beautiful Audi TT and a wedding photographer and videographer by trade. So after filming wedding after wedding this past wedding season, he decided to mix it up and shoot a quick automotive video. So with the help of his close friend Stas Furman they put together this cool short film documenting a day in NYC with the TT. It’s been exactly 4 years today since Dzemo purchased his TT and we couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate the occasion!

The time finally rolled around, and our group from the Midwest were stoked. We managed to get our WekEast weekend started bright and early with a long train of cars caravanning together from the Chi to the Garden State. Our caravan of cars was so big, from all over Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, that we had to meet in Indiana as our first meeting point. Mind you, this is only group one. We had a second group leaving the next day as well.

If you had asked any one of us three years ago what events we thought we would be attending in 2012, we probably would have guessed Import Alliance, Eibach, and Wekfest… and for the most part we would have been right. What I don’t think any of us could have ever imagined was traveling to California this summer to co-host our own event!
We are happy to announce that pre-registration for First Class Fitment 2012 is now open on the new FirstClassFitment.com! Pre-registration will be open until 9/30/11 and ALL cars that wish to be in the designated show area must pre-register! Whether you plan on showing your car or just coming out to spectate be sure to RSVP on our Facebook event page!
With its sixth installment this year, Eurowerks kicked off Saturday morning in quite the trending fashion. A dark cloud cover and rain greeted the early risers on Saturday morning, just as it had in previous years. Thankfully, as show time approached, the inclement weather retreated into the distance. Staff was busy making sure everything was in place for over 300 cars that filled the parking lots adjacent to the historical Grain Belt Brewery in downtown Minneapolis, MN.

This was the first year Weksos Industries held a show anywhere near the east coast. We were truly lucky to have the venue chosen out here in the Northeast. There were groups from Canada, New England, Chicago, Virginia, Florida and of course NJ, NY, and PA were in full attendance. The quality was phenomenal and overwhelming. Thank you Weksos for having hosting such an amazing event, can’t wait till next year!
HUGE THANKS again to Aaron and Carl Vaacar from AUTOLIFE TOUR for letting me get up on their trailer!!
Epic Weekend of the East was made possible by Tuner Evolution and Weksos having events in the same weekend, with great support from Fresh Meet, Canibeat, JDM Chicago, Tjin Edition Road Show, Autolife Tour.
HRE Wheels has undoubtedly made it’s name in the aftermarket industry due to the company’s strong demand of quality and refinement. Of course the same demand of quality transitions itself to the cars that choose to run HRE Wheels. HRE recently had another Open House Meet and you can rest assure that plenty of top-notch cars and super cars came to show. Read More
Those of you who have been in the car scene long enough may remember when Hot Import Nights and Nopi first had a very underground and grassroots feel to it. Many will attest to the fact that those days are gone and many car shows have tried to reproduce events of that sort of caliber, but have failed. Even HIN has tried to make a comeback in the past couple of years, but in my opinion, has not been able to recapture that raw essence of a car show. The essence I’m referring to is very simple actually, a car show (for the most part) just for the cars. Although car shows are not underground anymore, there are still quality shows out there. Nisei Showoff Car Show is one of the better quality car shows that still exists and if I were to say that a fledgling Autocon car show is comparable to a Nisei Showoff Car Show, I would quite frankly be lying. However, I can say that Autocon has been able to capture some of that raw essence that has been lost throughout the years with car shows becoming more mainstream. Read More
