Permaisuri Thursday // SLK on Erst Grora

I’m pretty sure not many of you would’ve heard of the name Erst before. It’s a Japanese company specializing themselves in producing forged and cast wheels for European cars. Popular among VW’s, the Grora model showcases an angled concave design that sets them apart from the competition. Today Permaisuri sent me this Grand Edition SLK sitting on a staggered set …

Simply ClasSick // Hendra’s K04 GTI on CCW

I used to think that Golf’s are boring and GTI’s are overpriced ($57k over here vs $25k in US). Leave the R alone, $80k for a hatchback was utterly unjustifiable for me. But then one day I got to sit in one of my friend’s GTI; after that one drive behind the wheel of the GTI, my shallow perception was …

Snappy Hatch // Turbo Fiesta on BC Forged

When it comes to modifying cars, we are often faced with tough decisions on whether or not to compromise things along the way. Should I install a custom-fitted turbo? Will it be safe? Reliable? But what should I do, then, if there’s really no bolt-on turbo kit in existence out there for my beloved car? Should I really just get …

Here to Stay // SVR Ferrari 360 Modena

Couple of months ago me and some friends went to Grand Indonesia around 9PM Saturday night to catch a movie. Out of the usual, the parking area was still all full and overly crowded even at that time of the night! Long story short, as it turned out, the Galaxy S4 was launched in the mall’s atrium on that same …

Permaisuri Thrusday // MINI Countryman on DPE

The way I look at it, despite the popularity of fake wheels in the industry, Indonesia still holds a prominent buying power when it comes to high value branded wheels. Take for example the GT86 on ADV.1 I posted some days ago. When ADV.1 put that image on their Facebook page, I saw commenters wondering why someone would install wheels …

A Matter of Choice // GT86 on ADV.1

Aggressively fitted. JDM style. Rocket-bunnied. Time-attack tuned. You name it, and I’m pretty sure there’s been a GT86 built on those routes. I’ve personally seen quite a lot of GT86’s both online and in person. But this, this particular one we are featuring today, quite frankly, is the first GT86 I’ve seen with ADV.1 wheels. While other owners might opt …

Senior Stance // Ahmad’s Grand Civic on Zender

The fourth generation Civic has been around since 1987, it was the last carbureted Civic in Indonesia. These days, there are not so many of this breed left around, let alone an aggressively fitted one. Ahmad chose this platform because it’s still one of the rarer platforms to be modified; and being the first-ever Civic with independent rear suspensions, it’s …
