EMS 2018

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, TRAVEL

EMS, The Essen Motorshow in Germany, after Sema Show in Las Vegas the biggest car show when it comes to aftermarket pieces and tuning. Tuning in the good way that is. Michiel joined me on the trip yesterday which was pretty fun as it’s always lots of fun with him around.

I’m not going to post too much cars from the show as I’m working on a big show coverage feature on my www.AutomotiveTuner.com channel. This will be published soon, go check out the cars over there if you like!

And then I stumbled up this guy, the one and only Puc Polish – haha! Good to see Stefan back again as we go back, way back as in 10 years I guess? He’s one of the best when it comes to polishing wheels and making your wheels on your car looking like never before. From starting to refurbish wheels in a small hangar to building a little empire with fame all over the world. Keep doing what you’re doing Stefan!

Hamburgers anyone? (Yes there are hamburgers in this photo)

We didn’t decided to go for the hamburgers as they looked way too funny and too weird. We went for the classic Currywörst – a must-eat when in Germany!

These new Porsche Grand GT Turismo’s are growing on me, I’m nog the biggest Porsche fanatic but they can drop off this Tech Art on my driveway. Please.

These were also 2 of my favourites (yes another Porsche). The RUF Porsche SCR, a fully new rebuilt Porsche with the looks of a 1978 body with the newest technology and 510hp on board. The massive white G63 AMG Brabus is just such a beast, I can imagine seeing myself rocking this one with Bentley on the backseat! Where do I sign?

In the basement, the tuning hall, I encountered this amazing red E30M3 with the most perfect paint and sick BBS wheels. Love on first sight! I would never paint an E30 in red myself but this thing was so mint… no words! More pictures coming up soon on the Automotive Tuner channel!

Long days as these require a lot of the golden stuff! Thanks Red Bull for keeping us going!

And yes, A Rolls! The only one on the show, pushed somewhere in a corner far away but I found it! Loved the telesto grey outdoor color and the orange/brown interior look! Rocking it! Thanks EMS, see you next year!

THE LAST SNAPS!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS

The last snaps, as in the last photoshoot of the M4… for this season! I took advantage of the last sunrays yesterday after a day behind the computer. Next days are rainy and cold with the neccessary frost and we all know what that means – Winter is coming! No roadsalt for this blue one!

Went for the arty shots on my favourite moment of the day, the golden hour! We all like that, correct?

I need a new exhaust, any tips? Want something a bit louder but not as in “look-at-me loud”! I’m seeing so much different exhaust systems for the M4 from €1.000 up to €12.500 for an exhaust system. Help me out other M3/M4 drivers!

C’est Normal – What else? Realling loving that low light, that sun flare and atmosphere in the air!

Those coupe bodylines are the best, just have a look at the bonnet, side wings on the front fenders and trunk spoiler. It’s almost like the curves of a fine lady (except for the boobs, the M4 doesn’t got boobs). It does got a proper booty tho – I like that.

There it is! (inserts peach emoticon) – Ha!

I know, I should have gone for the modeling career! Thanks for reading guys and the positive comments lately on the blog and my Instagram! I love you all! (well, most of you…)

REALLY DIRTY!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS

It’s been a bit quiet around here last week, I know. Been working pretty hard on the E30 wagon and it’s been pretty busy work-wise so have a bit mercy on me. Yes, another blogpost about me washing a car (DJ Khaled’s voice: “another one”). But, if I’m not wrong (and I’m not because I checked) I didn’t do one before on the M4. And as I still get a lot of questions on the foaming process and people just love photos of foamed cars, here we go!

As you can see I actually drove the M4, it’s not just sitting in the garage… Actually it is but hey, I got it dirty and it’s really really dirty now as you can see so it needs a bath! Don’t hate me now, a car is made to be driven!

This photo has nothing to do with this article but Bentley had a good fur-day and wanted to go on photo, nothing wrong with that. He’s cute, right?

Foam! That’s what it’s all about! Once you get it on, it gets the dirt loose and makes it easier to clean. It’s just so much more fun to clean your car and keeps your paint in better condition as foam prevents swirlmarks better as a normal wash.

Just leave the foam soaking in and enjoy the view!

And yes, it’s hard to not take a picture when it’s fully foamed, I admit. I’m guilty!

After the foam is fully soaked just wash your on the normal way with a bucket with soap and a washmitt. If you like, you can foam your car again and wash it with the new layer of foam on it.

Once you washed the car it’s time to dry it. I’m a big fan of this newest Meguiar’s drying towel, it’s big and it’s pretty amazing! Get’s most of the car dry in a single wipe, that’s how I like it.

*Starts playing: The Candy Shop – 50 Cent* It’s not often you find a car rental shop which rents out all of your dreamcars! Going from a Lamborghini Huracan to a Rolls Royce Wraith to plenty of other rides!

This massive Rolls Royce Ghost is one of the sickest cars for me on the parking lot. Just the way this beast looks is amazing, it stands for luxury and the finer things in life – much like!

And then there was this Aventador SV, on a totally other level as all the other cars here. Coming in matte black with a big load of carbon fiber makes this also high on my ‘want’ list! They can drop it off like this please!

And of course LA wouldn’t be LA if there weren’t any G-wagons to rent! If you have a weakness for G-wagons like Margaux, you’re at the right place! I’ll go for the bright green yellow-ish one! Totally bad*ss!

And why not throw a regular Range Rover in there? Cause that’s sooo Beverly Hills, that’s why!

If all the above rides were not enough or good enough, you can always choose this Maybach, Baller status activated!

And yes, this Defender… you know how I think about Defenders… if not, scroll down a bit on this blog!

This Huracan reminds me of my rental car in Dubai, maybe I should rent a car at Platinum Motorsport next time I’m over in LA!

LAND ROVER DEFENDER LOVE!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS

Some days in the office are just better then other days! I have the luck to shoot the coolest and most beautiful cars out there thanks to my favourite car shop, Xoto Premium cars! Jup, that’s the place where I bought my Bmw M4 and where I will probably buy more cars during my life! Haha!

The cars that needed to be photographed were these 2 amazing Land Rover Defenders, both in mint condition, and both on my ‘want-list’. I have a weakness for these Defenders, I know they look like a brick, have 0,0001% of aerodynamics, they’re slow as a bone but there’s just something about the off-road vehicles that I like so much!

I had the luck to drive these to several locations and the weather really was on my side, a low oriented sun which took care of the flare in the pictures (which I like) and those locations were a perfect match for these Defenders – Picture perfect!

This Heritage 110 version in a minty green was just on another level, it looks like new and looks so amazing!

And then there was this 90 Adventure series, it just fits this location so much, it’s in his natural habitat! If these cars were not for sale I would love to drive them through mud like a crazy man, must be so much fun!

You would think those Defenders would look boring and stock on the inside but nothing is left to coincidence, they just got everything! Electric windows, airco, heating, radio, cd, seat heating, … everything you could wish for!
