Some of us have friends that don’t take care of their cars. Let’s be real about it. We all know a homie who lets his oil drop out of his sheared to shit drain plug, and tops that bad boy off every other week or so. We also have that one friend who is so anal about their car that it rarely sees the light of day, if ever. Lucky for us, Kevin Brown is more like the later of the two but he actually drives his insanely clean MKIV GLI. And when I say “drive” I don’t mean down...

Our community is built around local support and that is exactly what Dub Empire strives on, supporting our local meets and events. Just last year, Orlando was gifted with an Ace Cafe (London base transport cafe) and it has been nothing more than positive for the car and bike community as a whole, by simply giving us a place to gather.  Every third Thursday of the month, our friends over at Air 2 Water/Kampala Kustomz of London host the monthly VAG meet.

Despite the long day, I still managed to wake...

Drifting a world wide sensation is now considered world wide racing sport, which I think is awesome! I mean why not!? Now fast...

The spring season is always a fun time in New England. Winter held on a bit longer than usual this year, so the Volkswagen community was especially eager to get the season underway. The first event to kick off the VW and Audi show season in the Northeast is New England Dustoff. I have been attending Dustoff for three years consecutively now. I have to say the show gets better and better every year regardless of what the weather does. When I arrived to the show, the rain was coming down pretty steadily as it usually is at Dustoff.
