It was more than a decade ago, in 2004, that three young BMW fanatics turned their attention to their car’s stereo system. Their 1998 Titanium Silver M3 was, like most BMWs, in desperate need of audio attention. Even now, BMW’s reputation isn’t built upon the quality of their sound systems, and as an integral part of the driving experience, especially if it’s meant to be the ultimate driving machine, stereo upgrades are essential.
It was more than three years ago that Riley Stair’s E28 made its debut on the StanceWorks homepage. In the following 41 months, the feature, photographed by Riley himself, climbed its way to the top of the charts, earning a spot in the top 10 most popular features in StanceWorks’ history. With just a glance, it’s easy to see why.
For years, we’ve worked to bring the StanceWorks community together. We’ve hosted our fair share of shows, from “Project 512” and the Avila Motoring Invitational, to Air Affair and “Stance of the Union” on more than one occasion; however, they all stand with a degree of separation from the heart of StanceWorks itself.
We’re only a few days away from our first-ever Open House – Come and join us at the StanceWorks HQ for an afternoon of cool cars and shop talk as we open our shop doors for the first time. The shop is located at 861 W18th Street, in Costa Mesa, CA. Parking will be first-come, first-serve! The event begins at 11:00am, so bring your car, bring your friends, and bring your dog too.
It’s been some time – more than four years in all – since we’ve last taken a look at the Fosters’ E21; however, like a good scotch, “Mr. Belvedere,” as the 320i is known, has only grown better with age.
At first glance, little, if anything, has changed with “Mr. B.” The Sepang Bronze paint still shines flawlessly, and the Ronal Racing splits still pair perfectly with the car they’re mounted to.
