It Plays: Audi S4

by Michael Chandler

At the last Slammed Saturdays I threatened to bring my camera gear and pick someone for a quick shoot.  This lovely red B7 S4 revealed itself as a strong candidate.  So I walked up to Alex, the owner, as he was mowing down some french fries and pitched him the idea.  He was down, and so we moved the car and got down to business.

The S4 has always been a handsome vehicle, not requiring a whole lot of modifications to make them truly proper.  A set of wheels, coilovers and uncorking either the twin turbo 2.7 liter V6 or either of the 4.2 liter V8s do the trick nicely.

The devil is in the details, and if you were just going to say “Oh, coilovers and wheels?  I guess thats cool…” look at the wheels again.

Those green calipers?  Yeah, they’re not Audi calipers.  They’re Porsche calipers, and Porsches can stop pretty good.  So yeah, just wheels, coilovers and a set of freaking Porsche calipers mean this B7 S4 plays.

It Plays: Subaru BRZ

by Michael Chandler

Subaru BRZ
Most of us have seen a Subaru BRZ on the road by now, but how many have been modified? I’m not talking about tinted tails or stickers, I’m talking lowered on Volk Racing wheels modified.
Lowered BRZ
Obviously I’m leading into this edition of “It Plays”. Brody, the owner of this BRZ doesn’t mess around. You’ve no doubt seen his white WRX track car in our coverage of Lap Battle. That car has been HEAVILY modified, but Brody swears he enjoys the gas mileage on this car too much to get crazy with it.

BRZ on Volk CE28N
And you can’t blame him for not modifying it too much when he has a track car(WRX) to play with, and a weekend car(DR30 Skyline) to enjoy.

Slammed Subaru BRZ
So far the car is just being enjoyed with some Volk Racing CE28N wheels, Tein coilovers, tint, and a modified 3rd brake light. It’s looking just right.

Modified Acura RSX-S

I’ve known Nate, the owner of this Blaze Orange RSX Type-S, for a few years. He used to own an EP3 Civic Si, and oh how the jokes about him punching his radio flowed.  Thankfully he stepped his game up and bought something with a proper K-series. Something that doesn’t require man on radio violence to change gears.

It Plays: 2005 Scion xB

by Trent

Slammed Scion xB CAMAutoMagOnce upon a time, Nik, the owner of this 2005 Black Cherry Pearl Scion xB, had a Skyline. Back when he and his wife lived in Okinawa, Japan they both had turbo 5 speed Skylines, and very little money. Nik and his R32 GTS-T had a few too many run-ins with the cops, so his wife made him agree to buy a car that wouldn’t get him thrown in jail. And that is how he came to own his xB, which he calls “STATUS:LOW” Follow us after the jump for more on this xB. (more…)
