RWB France #1 -

A year ago I traveled to London, where I saw an RWB for the first time. It was also the first time I met Nakai-san.

A self-made man who decided to create his own business when he found out that what he wanted didn’t exist. That’s how GruppeM was born in 1996, with the intention of creating the best carbon fiber intake systems that money could buy.

Tuning World Bodensee, for everyone

As I was saying in the RWB Osechi feature, tuning is not dead in Europe. Proof of that is the quantity of custom cars that were seen during the weekend of the Tuning World in Germany’s Friedrichshafen. There was a bit of everything for everyone.
