    Hot Import Nights Seattle, 8/2/08

    This was my 5th year at HIN Seattle...I've seen the show change with each year, but I must say this year was the absolute smoothest running I've experienced in these 5 years. Roll-in went smoothly, we got judged early, and I actually had time to take photos. Judging as usual was a bit controversial, but that just goes with the territory. I am happy to say though that my teammate Erich brought home Hottest Mild Subaru with his 04 Ings WRX and my other teammate, Dave "The Foth" brought home Best Engineered Vehicle with his RWD Drift Yaris. Alex Witkin also brought home another Hottest Wild Subaru win again too. Congrats guys!

    As for the photos...I took a bunch but I was lazy and shot them all handheld! That might've been Pyramid Brewery's fault though...haha

    I though that was your FSTi before I got to your post, I kind of had to do a double take while scrolling through the images. She looks great!

    Is that your banzai?




    And oh yeah, thanks for sharing Armin.

    Sweet Pictures man, nice job. #3 is my dream car, blue with the gunmetal rims looks so good, the painted lugs are a nice touch too.

    On picture #12, do you know how he did his dash lights? I changed mine to blue LED's but they don't light up as nice as those, mainly the needles. How did he get the lighting so even?

    Thanks As for the LEDs, we have a guy here locally who provides the service to get them as nice as that, so I'm not sure what the entire process entailed.
