The Audi B6 was the quintessential German sport-luxury platform of the past decade. The styling is iconic and elegant. Marc Davis has gone through four exterior colors, four suspension setups, and a handful of wheels in his seven years of ownership. His A4 has evolved over time into the simple yet striking machine you see here.
None of my friends had ever been to VAG Fair before so this year we decided we should see what all the hype was about. I have to say Corey Sterling has organized an impressive gathering. VAG Fair, which takes place at the Fairgrounds of York Pa, is a relaxing weekend of camp fires, ice cold beer and European cars. Unique to most shows, camping at the show grounds is welcomed and it turned out to be a blast. Of course for those more inclined to sleep in a real bed, the Best Western and Holiday Inn are only a mile from the show and they provide nightlife for the weekend by hosting huge meets. There’s no doubt we’ll be heading back next year. Enjoy!

I first met Mike at a local get-together on a summer night last year in Melbourne, Florida. After a few short greetings we were heckling one another and joking like longtime friends. Mike’s car has gone through many changes in a short time span, but Mike has not. He is the same jovial and social guy who is part of this car scene for the right reasons – it’s about the people we befriend more than the cars they drive.
Derek Buehler and John Quay are among the lowest Static E36’s, with front lips gliding mere millimeters over the beaten roads we have all come to expect in the Tristate area. They aren’t afraid to drive them either. Derek managed to survive the minefield that is Center City Philadelphia on his trip up from Maryland for the Shrink all the Cars meet back in April. John didn’t hesitate to hop in, throw the top down and drive from his home in Central PA down to Maryland for us to shoot the film you see before you. We had a blast and the Baltimore suburbs of Columbia provided for a perfect backdrop. Enjoy!
Marking its third season this past June 29, 2013, Eurokracy Montréal is the go-to European automotive event in Canada. Eurokracy Montréal is a day-long showcase of the baddest rides in North America focusing on quality. Competitions like a full NHRA ¼ mile drag, burnout, show & shine and a world’s first low-car competition titled “The Neckbreaker” presented by AccuAir Suspension had the thousands of spectators pumped from morning until night.
Three of us stood in a bare parking lot at 8am, staring at a matte white Audi S4. An S4 that would need to carry us and a long list of belongings all the way out to Englishtown, New Jersey for the legendary European automotive show; Waterfest.
For the 3rd year StanceWars has brought together slammed, flush and fitted cars together from the Pacific Northwest . The top 100 cars showcased on the rooftop of this VIP style event provides enthusiasts with a first hand experience to witness the finest cars in the area. Whether your into JDM, Euro, Static or Air everyone seemed to find a car they could connect with. This show is growing every year, so if you wanna make that top 100 you better spin those coils down and polish those fenders. We at Canibeat had I great time covering the event, enjoy the video!
The BMW M3 is an icon in the automotive world as one of the best looking and driving cars ever built. Ian Higgins’ E36 is no exception. Taking inspiration from both the stance scene and racing roots, Ian’s M3 combines both appearance, and purpose.

Red carpets, suede ropes, flashing cameras, and a table for you and your crew with a bucket of that good stuff on ice. Sounds like a glamorous night at an upscale club downtown, doesn’t it?
Allow me to introduce Johnee Sou’s ’08 BMW 528i, a car that can provide this same glamorous feeling while looking much more appealing in the process than a couch and a candle lit coffee table to place your champagne flute.
This was the 3rd year that Stancewars held their show at Bellevue Community College’s parking structure. The parking structure has an amazing view of the Seattle Skyline and with perfect weather one couldn’t ask for a better show. This was my first time attending the show and I was thoroughly impressed with the selection of cars that were in attendance. The top floor consisted of some of the vendors and the Top 100, which were cars that were carefully selected by the staff and the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer! The lower levels consisted of general entry cars and there were a huge variety of cars from people all around the PNW. This is not a show to be missed, make sure and check it out next year and enjoy our coverage!
