Hey guys, the ceremony is tomorow. AT LAST, from 1-5pm for the general public.

What do you guys think.

I heard the Japanese Autobacs team will be there, spoke to the Japanese guys on the phone, he said there would be auto clubs. :roll:

Its the Best Buy of tuner parts.
especially if you got a honda, acura, or nissan/infinity. Its a nice place. The excitement level is definately there today, when you drive up there's so many nice cars in the parking lots and out front. Its like a Carson Toyota meet with less people. I suggest you go by there if you are close by. Its a cool enough place to have a meet near by too, there's lots of parking space in the lots all around that area. They got PIAA bulbs. How hard are those to find normally? They got all types of add on stuff for your car. I didn't see anything labeled Lexus though. Alot of the parts on display are for Honda's and Acuras and such.
Anyway check out the pics. Its in Stanton, hop off the 22 on Beach Blvd and go North a few blocks and you will see it.





rest are here..

Was just there and their prices are :eek: Kinda on the pricey side IMO. Hopefully they'll realize that and bring down their prices a bit or I'll just wait for sale and clearance items, :lol:

DOn't get too excited. People are saying this place is high. remember for specialty stuff you can always check around. This place has it all right there, but if stuff cost more than at other places, thats no good. Example, if you are looking for springs, and this place has them but you also go to the spring manufacturer's website and they have a dealer that has them for 30 bucks less, would you like the excitement of autobacs or the do it yourself enjoyment of saving 30 bucks by driving to a dealer?

I only wish I had that problem. I have 0 choice but to order it online. I would like the choice of being able to NOT get stuff at a place like that. but you can have the other not so redeaming qualities of SoCal. ;)

Their prices are okay. They had a set of 18 inch gunmetal gt-7s for 2500 w/ tires. They were Falken tires I believe. Their pricing is not to outrageous. I was expecting high mark up. Honestly, I thought that store sucked. If you haven't been to the store yet, I would suggest that you quickly turn to the very left side of the store, it is the only place worth looking. Thats the section where they have springs, turbo, intercooler, seats, and other good stuff. The rest of the store was a waste of time to look at. If I was to purchase anything from them, it would probably be some oil. They had a wide selection of stock including HKS.

The only thing good about those super stores is that it can give you some great ideas of what you can buy over the internet cheaper :D
