studie yokohama 2010 part I.

Finally finished going through all the pictures, exporting and uploading them. Took way too long. The trip overall was pretty good, a shame I couldn’t reach all the shops I set out for. Missed going to ASM and Mooneyes cause of the flu I caught from HK, and Wald cause my schedule was messed up and ended up leaving Kyoto for Osaka late, leaving no time to go to Wald. I guess there’s always next time.

Anyways, first car shop I stopped at was Studie Yokohama again. This time I kinda knew where I was going, and it was during the day so it was very easy to find. It’s a ten minute walk from Kishinekoen station on the Yokohama City Blue line.

Definitely can’t miss it, the sign is huge. A little bit more on the logo: it was created by a local artist, Rocco, whom runs an art school for kids that my friend’s daughter attended. I was showing them some of the pictures I took and the daughter immediately pointed out the logo was done by Rocco-san. His style is pretty unique though, the use of shape and vibrant colours – gives off a South American kinda feel to it.

Well.. this is new. Nice looking Ducati sitting right by the entrance.

If I’m not mistaken, that’s an M Performance steering wheel with multifunction display sitting there.

Vid of the steering wheel in action:

Lots of AC Schnitzer parts lying around, like this BBK.

As always, love the Advans. And the E30 M3 turned Gran Turismo gaming machine is still around. I don’t think they’re ever gonna use that as a car again, as some people were speculating that this gaming rig was a temporary thing when I posted the tour of the first time I went to Studie Yokohama.

Hamann stuff… Not the biggest fan of Hamann, but I’m liking those flat black 5 split spoke wheels.

More Hamann goods…

Tamiya TT01E RC car with Studie x Glad Racing Super GT Hatsune Miku livery. LOVE IT. Definitely gonna order one sometime this year, I wonder if they come with the shell only… not exactly sure what I’m gonna do with a TT01E chassis.

More brake kits, coilovers…

Digging the parts from 3D Design… though they don’t have much, the Stack gauges and holder and pedals are nice. Actually picked up a set of the pedals myself.

3D Design coils by Ohlins.

More of Rocco’s art is found around the shop.

ARQRAY exhausts. Definitely thinking about it for the E46 later on. They make some pretty nice exhausts, I don’t recall seeing any of their titanium pieces though. Love their front lip for the MtechII bumper for E46 as well.

A whole bunch of Supersprint exhausts as well.

Didn’t notice this before, but looking at this pic… they’re pretty well stocked in KW’s. 😀

A blinged up M3… this guy had chrome bits everywhere. Not a fan of the car, but I do like his exhaust. No clue who makes it though.

I’ll continue another time with part II – some of their shop cars and used cars for sale. Or check out my flickr, I have some more photos of Studie Yokohama in the album that isn’t posted here.
