We're proud to announce that the Champion of Tuner Battlegrounds 2013 will be crowned at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 5-8. The 4(four) finalists, "Top 4", will be invited to display their cars in a special PASMAG booth located next to the Grand Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, site of the most prestigious automotive specialty products trade event in the world!

Tuner Battlegrounds brings automotive enthusiasts together in a unique online car show (www.tunerbattlegrounds.com). Tuner Battlegrounds is unique in that rather than PASMAG's staff selecting the "Best of Show" winners, the responsibility is placed in the hands of the audience (fans, show-goers, friends and family). With a click of a button or sending of a text message, the audience votes and chooses winners from one round to the next.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2012

Coming to Tokyo is no chore for anyone who knows how much it pays off when you get here. Despite the long flights, bus rides and train rides everyone is at their fullest the instant they step out onto the bustling streets of Tokyo. Girls in maid uniforms with unnaturally high-pitched voices try to smooth-talk you into getting rid of some cash at their maid café while you try and find your hotel that’s jammed somewhere between a ramen shop and a micro-sized Jinja (shrine). But it’s Tokyo, so the closet-sized hotel room and shrimp burger you had for supper…
