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!
Enjoyment and memories. While cars are originally why we all got into the “scene” as it’s called these days, the real reason we all manage to weather the storm of drama is because of the people we meet and the memories that are made over the years. For most, we countdown months, weeks and days to meets like Import Alliance, Southern Worthersee, H2O International, Wekfest and tons of others because of the friends we will reunite with and laughs that will be shared with them.
The second annual European automotive show, Eurohangar, was once again a hit. Hosted during the last weekend in June in Holland, Michigan, the show’s location was beautiful. We started out at the pre-meet on Friday night then ended at the show on Saturday. If you missed out this year, be sure to look into going next year!

With features, you always have two types. First, you have the ones that are built in a short amount of time, lots of money thrown at them but lack any depth once you get past the mod-list. Others are created by the average guy in his garage, learning from each task he works to tackle. They are builds that take more than just months, as some span over years. Every year they push the bar higher than the previous, and slowly their creations become a part of their identity and family. Cars like Zach Werkheiser’s MK2 Volkswagen Jetta Coupe are why we pour through build threads, they give you motivation and confidence to go out and pick up a wrench or paint gun to make a build that you can truly call your own.
Porsche is widely known for its sports car offerings and world-class Cayenne SUV. The Panamera, however, is regarded as the black sheep of the otherwise attractive family. The round rear hatch and awkward proportions made it an easy target for journalists to criticize. That didn’t stop AMS Autowerks’ Diogo from undertaking the seemingly uphill task of perfecting the German design.
When it comes to German engineering, BMW has become a household name over the years after creating a myriad of iconic chassis. What started as planes, evolved into motorcycles and automobiles during the post war era. The slogan of “The Ultimate Driving Machine”, which BMW adopted over the years has been proven time and time again especially when it comes to the “M” branch of BMW. No matter the decade a BMW comes from, they are known for being clean and elegant but at the same time, when unleashed, they turn into a whole other beast. Nick D’Andria, Kacper Krajewski and Antoine Spignardo have created their own unique takes on three of BMW’s more popular chassis, taking already amazing machines, and making even more breath-taking than before.
