An Award Winning Finish for CSF
May 31, 2019
With May coming to an end and just a few weeks shy of summer, car shows and caravans are in full swing here in Southern California. CSF geared up and prepared for the 20th year anniversary of Bimmerfest, the largest private BMW gathering in the world. Hosted in our back yard, Auto Club Speedway that is less than 10 minutes away from our headquarters. This is one of the biggest events of the year that we attend considering BMW is our strongest market. Check out our Bimmerfest 2018 recap if you missed it last year. And against the odds, Southern California decided it wanted to show chances of rain in the forecast for the big weekend. Not only was there Bimmerfest to look forward to, but it was also Memorial Day weekend! We had our ponchos on stand-by, set our alarm clocks for the big day and were ready to kick-off the weekend with a bang!
Old meets new
February 26, 2019
The E30 is a true icon of German engineering and performance. As the years pass by, the prices continue to climb it seems and more enthusiasts want to get their hands on one. To this day I still miss mine, wish I never got rid of it.
E9x M3 cooling package featured on SPEEDHUNTERS
March 4, 2017
What happens when a car enthusiast decides to have a family? Facing the dilemma of getting rid of a project car to make room for something more practical is not fun at all. Freddy Chang was looking for was something track-worthy and family friendly at the same time. What he ended up building is the Ultimate Family Driving Machine, an E91 M3 wagon. Working closely with So-Cal heavy hitters, LTMW, they’ve managed to trick this wagon out with almost every M3 detail imaginable; everything from the S65 V8 engine swap, with an ESS Tuning VT2-625 supercharger, to the exterior front and rear M3 fenders, and even inside with proper gauge cluseter and shift knob swap! This M wagon checks off all the boxes.

The Ultimate Endurance Racing Machine
March 30, 2016
Endurance racing – the ultimate test of man and machine working together. Competing against other teams, the elements, and numerous unexpected variables in order to survive the grueling battle against the clock. Sometimes these endurance races last 4-6 hours, maybe even twelve. If your willpower matches your skillset, and the preparation of your vehicle is on par with the best in motorsports, you step it up to a race that last more than a full day – The 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
Better Late Than Never
September 30, 2014
I just had to do it!! I couldn’t resist not sharing my 1st experience from the West Coast Bimmerfest 2014 held back in May at the Rose Bowl in sunny Pasadena, California. Like a young boy going to his first “dance”, I had no idea what to expect, but when looking back on the event, I was dame sure excited to go!
How Low Can You Go?
March 25, 2014
Slammed, dropped, tucked, poke, stretched, rolled, and bagged…These are all terms of the “low life”, the slammed society culture. I’m fully aware of the scene that is ever so present in today’s tuning scene, but foreign to me being that I’m more of a performance orientated car enthusiast… However, being that I’m currently back in California now, the chance to be able to check out my first Illest Slammed Sundays experience was something that I had to jump on about a week ago during the middle of March.
