A few weeks ago I posted some JDM cars on social media featuring anime stickers and full body wraps from my second ever carmeet experience. Coming in not knowing what to expect, I arrived with a friend and armed with a piss-poor Oneplus One camera phone, I began taking pictures of almost all the cars that I could.
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.
Aftermarket car lighting technology is becoming more and more advanced, giving drivers plenty of options on how they can upgrade their car. This is a set of Toyota LED daytime running lights/fog lamps has a special 3-in-1 design that includes LED daytime running lights, low beam fog/driving lights, and high beam/fog driving lights. The LED DRL/fog lamps even come with a sensor that automatically triggers a toggle between the daytime running light function and the fog light high beam when you drive through a dimly lit area, like a tunnel.
To buy the Toyota 86 or buy the Subaru BRZ… that is the question. The purist audience that loves the Toyota 86 and how it represents the AE86 Corolla will lean towards the Toyota and while the others will prefer the Subaru. The differences are subtle but there is a real decision to make when buying either one.
When you’re installing your new LED bulb, there are several components in the socket that are important to note. You have the actual bulb, the bulb adapter, and the stock socket harness. During the installation process, if the LED bulb does not seem to "fit", make sure that you have removed the appropriate piece in order to make the connection.
Below, you can see the three components (from top to bottom):
