#storefrontfriday: Scion FR-S by @redridin_86

A few months ago, I started taking notice of the different kinds of cars that come by our storefront and started paying attention to the custom work done. I decided that taking pictures of our customers’ work in progress was a good way to get to know them and if anything, have material to post and write about. Many of them were JDM oriented and Sam’s Scion FR-S/Toyota 86 was no exception. I went downstairs to take a closer look.

Add LED DRL Eagle Eyes to Achieve a Truly Custom Look

While custom work can take a lot of time and effort to execute well, the added LED lights and the boosted aura that your car gives off is often worth it. Most LED daytime running lights are restrictive in that they are exclusively made for their intended car models. Universal fit DRLs also exist but they are constrained by a set shape. So what are your options if you want the complete custom look and don’t mind the retrofitting work? Use the high power flexible LED daytime running lights/puddle lamps!

Otaku Thursday is an Anime Treasure Trove for Gearheads

2016 LA Autoshow Coverage

The LA Auto Show is here again, and it’s one of our favorite car shows to attend since it showcases concept future cars with cars of the present. Here are a couple
interesting tidbits we noticed this year:

As most of us are well aware, the Scion brand is no more and has been dismantled after 13 years of giving us some of the coolest, most affordably hip cars on the roads.
While majority of Scion models have been completely discontinued like the the Scion tC, iQ, xB, and xD. We can still see remnant of the Scion brand that’s been absorbed
into the Toyota lineup. These former Scion models are now branded as Toyota, with the extremely Scion FR-S rebadged as the Toyota 86, the Scion iA as the Yaris iA, and
the Scion iM as the Corolla iM. Plus, we also see the Toyota line expanding, with the newly unveiled Toyota C-HR.
