Danger Ambulance: WIZ Custom Builder's 1988 Nissan Caravan (E24)

Usually, when you spot an ambulance, you’re jostling to get out of its way. Move over to the side of the road, wait for the lights to pass and hope that whoever they’re going to retrieve or drop off is going to be okay. But WIZ Custom Builder has taken the idea of the helpful ambulance and turned it on its head. If this low-riding Caravan were to come rolling up behind me, sirens blaring, I’d be pulling over to hop out of my car and head into the middle of the street in hopes of them plowing me over…

Panda, Panda, Panda: Ikeda Masataka's 1983 Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86)

This is the sort of place that you’d blow straight past in a matter of seconds, without so much as a second thought. You wouldn’t even stop here for a snack at a convenience store, because, well, there isn’t one. Hidden in this small farming community near Gobo in Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture, surrounded by muddy rice paddies and lush green forest, you can find a small, nondescript grey building, not unlike the hundreds of thousands of other nondescript grey buildings dotted across rural Japan. There is no sign above the roller door, no tell-tale stacks of used semislicks sitting outside…

Dark Knight: Donald Santora's 2008 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Donald Santora's Wide Golf GTI. In Oceanside, New York, a hero has emerged from the darkness. You can find it cruising around town, modelling on the old train tracks, and always looking flashy. This hero isn't a new addition to the cityscape of Oceanside at all - it's been a mainstay for eight years now, and in its strongest form yet, it has some new additions to show off. Oh, this hero isn't a person by the way, it's Donaldo Santora's widebody Volkswagen Golf Mk5 GTI. Modifications didn’t begin in Santora’s life with an old Golf or Rabbit as you…

Sony XM-S400D Amplifier Review

Maybe your stock audio system suits you pretty well, but it just lacks the clean power you need to really enjoy your music. And if you have a leased vehicle, or simply can’t afford the space or cash that a full-size amplifier requires, pay attention here because the folks at Sony have a solution. Sony has introduced a compact four-channel amplifier designed to add some much needed power to your OEM system. The amp is called the XM-S400D, and is a Class D unit with an advertised output power of 45 watts per channel into four ohms. Best of all,…

Focal E 30 KX 12-Inch Subwoofer Review

In this review we are going to take a look at one of the newest Focal subwoofers. The Focal E 30 KX is a 12-inch dual voice coil woofer designed to appeal to the customer looking for a higher-end high-output sub. And from the looks of it, the high-end appeal target scores a bullseye. FEATURES Built on a custom designed, rugged cast aluminum basket and nicely finished in gray powdercoat, the E 30 KX is an impressive woofer to un-box. The woofer is beefy, weighing in at just over 24 pounds, due in no small part to the massive 170-mm…

If you happen to be driving a Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicle, and you’re just not happy with the factory supplied audio system, well, you’re not alone. Sure, you’d like to make some improvements, but maybe you don’t know where to begin, or you simply don’t have a trunk full of cash to spend. Maybe you can’t find products that fit, or are unwilling to do any modifications to the car. In that case, you will want to read on because this review is about a new product that is the solution you’re looking for. The folks at PowerBass understand…
