asia 2010.

Ooooh getting close to my Asia 2010 trip. Month and a half left till I hit HK, and then to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Should’ve planned earlier though, rushing to book hotels and organize the itinerary for the trip is kinda hectic with work and studying. Gonna be visiting a whole bunch of shops this year, hopefully if it all works out and if I don’t get lost, you guys can look forward to some coverage of:

Autobacs ASM Yokohama (again)
Type One
J’s Racing

For the BMW guys:
Studie Yokohama

For the hot rodders:

And the must go to chain stores:
Super Autobacs
Up Garage

So yea, it’s looking pretty packed right now. I think I got everyone covered. JDM, Euro & Domestics. It’s gonna be a good trip.

tas 2010 picks.

So, going through all the pics on the web of Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 coverage, here are some of my favourites:

The obvious choice, the Amuse 370z. I’ll admit that I thought the 370z was pretty ugly when I first saw it, but it’s definitely grown on me after seeing some done up. Love the LM-R’s. Great choice of wheels for the car.

Another favourite of mine is the Wald Black Bison E90. I love the aggressiveness of the kit, though, I’m not a huge fan of the rear, the front makes up for it.

Next up is the Blow Design Mode Parfume Cima/Q45’s. I think it’s a really nice mix between sport and luxury. It’s nice to see a Q45 with a sportier appearance, in contrast with all the VIP ones out there. Don’t get me wrong, I love VIP, but this is nice. It’s different.

IIRC, those brakes are rebranded Endless calipers too. Pretty nice.

I think this one may be pretty love hate, but I do love the Tamon Design 370z. It’s a pretty smooth kit IMO. The front is Aston Martin-ish – kind of.
