Bumper to Bumper XI: A Theme Park for Car Crazies!

Bumper to Bumper is back! And its happening on December 5 and 6 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds!

I am a certified car show nut. But, there are only a few car shows I look forward to and Bumper to Bumper XI is most definitely at the top of that list. So when it was time for their press conference, I was literally one of the first ones there!


Being the longest running car show and automotive lifestyle event in the country, if a self proclaimed "car guy" does not know what "B2B" is, he should be stripped off of that title. Now on its 11th year, Bumper to Bumper XI features the biggest production setup in any car show in Asia. Yes, in Asia.

JDM Tires and Magwheels: Revive Your Rims!

As any car enthusiast would know, all it takes to make any stock car look a bit more sexy is a nice set of rims. I have always looked at rims as a car's "crowning glory", the cherry on top, the sweet kiss that seals a car's look all together. So when it was time to get my car's first set of aftermarket shoes, like any life-altering decision, it took me eons to finally decide on getting an 18-inch VS-SD by Work...(dramatic pause)... It was like getting a diamond ring.

I got the rims used. So needless to say, it was definitely not in mint condition when I bought it three years ago. It had scratches, chips, gutter marks, bent lips and chipped paint. It had it all. So for the longest time I have been itching to have it refurbished. But I was just too picky in choosing a shop to hand my "diamond ring" to.

Enter JDM Tires and Magwheels... One week with them and my rims looked brand spanking new! You can remove the rivets on there and see each and every one perfectly shiny. Flawless paint. Every nook and cranny squeaky clean, it really left me in awe. I shrieked like a girl when I got them back. I fell in love all freakin' over again!

Here's another one of their works of art-- 17-inch Sebring rims. Originally silver mesh turned to stunning gold. Look at how that lip was polished too. Oh mama!
