If I had to sit down and count the number of people I would trust with certain aspects of my life, I would have a very short list of people, and believe it or not, it would be an even smaller list if I was to think of those I’d trust with putting their hands on my car. My car is an expression of who I am, what I am capable of, and my vision/taste.
I’ve had an ongoing friendship with Albert Alonso, owner of Art99erformance in Spain, and let me tell you, if there was one person I would have 100% certainty would do quality work on my car, it would be...
ALMS & Grand-Am Partner up
A New Championship is Born
Words by Emil Garcia
Press Release via ALMS / Grand-Am
In our beautiful country NASCAR has always reigned supreme. It was a simple concept; Americans did not want any form of racing that did not involve Carbureted Pushrod V8s. That was until 1998 when Don Panoz, Father of the legendary car builder Dan Panoz, Formed the American Le Mans Series. American Le Mans held its inaugural race, the 12 Hour Endurance, right here in Florida at Sebring International Raceway. The Series has come a long way, growing from an eight race calendar to as many as twelve until finally settling on ten....

Peugeot, Peugeot. That’s was the shadow that was cast over the Audi Sport team at this year’s American Le Mans season opener. Peugeot has taken the opening win for the previous 2 years and with Peugeots departure from the American Le Mans series this year, Audi was sure to be winner right?
Temperatures holding steady in the mid 80s, Friday’s qualifying sessions sorted the pack. With Audi Sport Team Joest taking 1, 2, and 3 in qualifying it was a safe bet to say that an Audi would cross the finish line on the podium. The LMP1 class battled hard throughout the...

I got to see some behind the scene snaps of Travis’ A3 and I knew it was a build I wanted to share with all of you. It one of those cars that makes it look easy. Clean, wheels, and low; but there is so much more than meets the eye…
The A3′s body is smooth and clean, with gorgeous lines. Travis spent a lot of time deciding which wheel would compliment those lines the most. After seeing the amazing fitting set of Rotiform BWEs I would say that he made a spectacular choice.
The wheels where only part of the build, air controlled by Accuair’s e-level really...
Targa Trophy NYE
New Year’s Eve Rally and Party
Photography by Joseph Ginzburg
As 2011 came to an end, many enthusiasts were washing and prepping their cars for the Targa Trophy NYE Experience. Quite pricey per entry, this was definitely an elite event. So elite that the starting location, check points and finish line were not disclosed to participants until almost just before the event.
Exotics of all kind roamed the streets of San Diego until finally reaching the Official Event party at Ivy Night Club at Andaz San Diego where a car Show Curated by So Cal Euro & Friends took place.
Targa Trophy opened the NYE Experiance to...

The guys over at Speedline Film Werks keep pumping out some great event coverage videos.
They recently sent us this great video from WaterWerks 2011. Check it out!
Some time ago, Speedline Film Werks reached out to State of Stance with their most recent work. It is a film featuring Ben Thomas and his B5 Wagon. After seeing the clip I knew it was something I wanted to share with all our readers and fans. I hope to be sharing more of Speedline’s work in the upcoming future, but for now, we are very proud to exclusively debut Ben’s B5 as seen by Speedline Film...

There’s a strong possibility that German tuning house MTM’s booth at the Geneva Motor Show will be visibile from space. The boys from Wettstetten are bringing their paint-free polished-aluminum Audi R8 BiTurbo to Hall 5 at Geneva. The company is mum on exactly how they removed all that paint, but they do allow that it took 700 hours of polishing to get the car where it is now.
If the gleaming bodywork isn’t enough to snag your gaze, MTM packed its latest R8 with 777 twin-turbocharged horsepower just to let everyone know they weren’t fooling around. The result is good for a claimed top speed of more than 217 mph,...

What can be said about Sergio Ramirez’s Audi A4 can also be said about Sergio himself; “unique”!
Sergio is one of the lucky people that live where most people vacation, a town full of nightlife, vices, art and of course style. So it is no surprise that this masterfully stanced Audi resides in the MIA.
Step into Miami for the first time and you’ll be overwhelmed by the energy, a subtle touch of slow moving Caribbean life during the day with a intense pulse of hectic city nightlife when the sun goes down. You can’t help but notice all the design aspects that are infused...

When you hear the term ‘wheel whore’ you think of low cost wheel swapping just to change up the look of a car. Lenny’s outlook on that is completely different. When I first met him a few months ago, he was rolling on 1pc Rotiform BLQ’s. Not even a week after that, he wanted to reschedule for another shoot since he had new wheels on order. Come to find out that he decided to go with 3pc Forged Rotiform BLQ’s. The fitment is so much better and the look, more aggressive. The way this Audi sits on the H&R coilovers just makes everyone’s heads turn whether...

Some say a single picture can speak a thousand words. This one picture does just that. Sergio Ramirez isn’t just part of the State of Stance staff, but he’s an enthusiast and part of the movement. Just one look at his stanced Audi A4 on CCWs and one thousand words come to mind....
On my usual adventure through the interwebz, I once in a while come across some stunning cars. This TT is one of those cars. Many of you know I am a fan of BBS LMs and these dished LMs with fully polished lips just make my heart melt.
What a beautifully crafted stance, low, wide and full of...
