It was on and popping at the Auto Club Speedway of California in Fontana, CA on Saturday, May 23rd for Bimmerfest 2015. A little bit of rain couldn’t hurt the show! We rolled through with our guys from Dinmann Carbon Fiber and MSTR Watches to represent with a packed fleet. Impressive Wrap also came through with the satin chrome Liberty Walk M4. A one-off M5 Dinmann exclusive was debuted at the show and heads were turning thanks to a set of brushed gold SV61 Forged wheels. We also spotted Vibe Motorsports’ M6 Gran Coupe and R1 Concepts’ M5 at the Magnaflow booth. MSTR Watches also showcased some fresh new timepieces from their collection. The show was the biggest yet, with more BMWs on display than ever before. It was a great event…thanks Bimmerfest!
Last week, we headed down South to connect with our boys at Butler Tires and Wheels for Caffeine & Exotics and here’s Part II of the blog post, filled with even more photos and a video! It was definitely a great event, with so many dope rides that we had trouble picking a favorite. Check out the extra photos and video below to see what went down in “Hotlanta.” Read Part I here!
Dinmann hooks up a variety of dope rides with dry carbon fiber parts so that they stand out from the rest. One of their latest projects is this BMW F80 M3 that flaunts their full Carbon Fiber Aero Package that includes: a front lip, side skirt lip, rear diffuser and rear bumper lip. Custom Dinmann front fenders were also added to create a banging Bimmer with unbeatable looks. The custom treatment continues inside with a complete Dinmann interior, featuring seat back covers, door handles and a special carbon fiber Dinmann steering wheel. The Bavarian M3 is on point as it growls with power thanks to a GT Haus exhaust and rides clean on Black di Forza BM10 Savini Wheels in a brushed red finish wrapped inside Nitto Invo 275/30R20 front and 305/30R20 rear rubber.
We headed down South to connect with our boys at Butler Tires and Wheels for Caffeine & Exotics – the city’s premier car show for exotic car owners and fans. Situated at Atlanta’s Lenox Square, there was pure luxury and performance prowling across the pavement. We partnered with Butler Tire and displayed a few rides and wheels for the day’s event, including a Porsche 911 Turbo S, C63 AMG, Audi R8 and the hot new Bentley GT V8 S thanks to Bentley of Atlanta. Check out the photos below to see what went down in “Hotlanta.” Big thanks to the entire crew at Butler and stay tuned for more!
The Lexus RC 350 F Sport is a luxury coupe with sleek and sporty aesthetics that adds upon the base model RC 350. This smooth operator is an conspicuous import that combines a stylish exterior with ample horsepower, providing drivers with a luxury ride wherever they go. Powered by a V6 engine, the RC 350 F Sport delivers just over 300 hp and features a unique look that’s different from other Lexus models. The sport model offers several upgrades from the standard model, including an aggressive mesh front spindle grille, adaptive suspension and a new SPORT+ driving mode for more precise handling, as well as 4-wheel steering for taking sharp corners like a boss. To improve on its aggressive design, a set of Black di Forza BM13 wheels in a brushed red finish were added. Now the RC 350 F Sport is even more eye catching than before!

Lamborghini makes some of the world’s most admired and fastest cars, and their latest supercar lives up to the Raging Bull legacy.The Huracán LP 610-4 features sharp, aerodynamic lines that are designed to tame the road, with every detail on the impressive exotic boasting the finest Italian craftsmanship and luxury finishing of unprecedented prestige. Powered by a naturally aspirated V10, the Bull roars with power the minute you press the ignition button. Packed with 602 hp, the Huracán races from 0-62 mph in just 3.2 seconds before topping out at 202 mph. Not much is needed because the Huracán is already a beautiful sight to behind, but RDB LA fitted this white beast with a set of Balck di Forza BM12 wheels in a brushed bronze finish, which only makes the supercar that much more eye catching!
The Nissan GT-R is an all-around beast, with the ability to outrun some of the world’s best sports cars and costs about a fraction of their price. The Japanese supercar packs a twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood and features eye-catching exterior design cues. This particular 2010 GT-R benefits from numerous modifications, both inside and out. A WALD Black Bison body kit provides aggressive good looks and includes a front and rear bumper and side skirts, while a SEIBON carbon fiber hood and carbon roof makes it unlike any other GT-R on the road. Additional exterior modifications include an ABflug rear carbon fiber diffuser, APR Carbon GT wing and side mirror covers, in addition to JL Motor side carbon fiber skid plates. A fierce stance is due to a G DRIVE Coilover suspension by ACC Air Runner, Inc. of Japan.
Stock, the 2010 GT-R goes from rest to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds before topping out at 193 mph, but the addition of an Amuse Tuned ECU churns up the horsepower, while a GT HAUS Meisterscahft exhaust and Fujitsubo ArQray Mid pipings provides an aggressive growl. Stopping power is thanks to a Rotora Big Brake Kit that features 8-piston 405mm front rotors and 4-piston 355mm rear rotors. Inside, BRIDE seats provide a sporty look.
Because no ride would be complete without a fresh set of Forged SV39 21×9.5 front and 21×11 rear wheels in a white finish were wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sports 265/35R21 front and 305/30R21 rear rubber.
We’ve been noticing more Tesla Model S vehicles on the road lately and so have PTAP, who recently customized their very own Model S. More and more drivers are opting to go green and the Model S is the perfect ride to do that in since it doesn’t compromise style or performance even though it’s an electric vehicle. As an evolution in automobile engineering, the advanced electric powertrain in the Model S is unlike any other combustion engine since it only has one moving piece, the rotor, which allows it to go hit 60 mph in as little as 3.1 seconds and still provide a silent and smooth ride. In terms of looks, the sedan is already a stunning machine on the road, but PTAP enhanced it’s styling by wrapping it with a 3M brush titanium wrapped custom painting its logos. It’s also features a tint with LLumar film and rocks a set of Black di Forza BMW 22×9 front and 22×10.5 rear wheels in a blue finish. For more info, visit PTAP’s site PTAP.
