BFI Waterfest 22 Event Coverage

Event Coverage



We made the drive up to Waterfest this year to drop off a shipment and help out our friends at New German Performance.  Typically we would have an entire team with us in our own booth, but this year we focused on helping NGP spread the word and inform customers about BFI products.  Even though it was nice and hot, with a surprise storm on Saturday, we still had a great time meeting new people, and seeing old friends.  We were able to answer a ton of questions, as well as put some faces to names with a lot of our online customers. Highlights from the trip this year included the always popular burnout competition (that included donuts this year, mmmm),  watching some amazing cars drag racing, and of course, eating giant sandwiches every chance we got.  On the way back home, we made a quick stop at VW/Audi HQ for a little tour of their office.   Getting stuff all ready to roll for the show over the weekend.

Had to take a break and hang out on top of the NGP trailer and watch Orchid Euro set up. 


We brought out our newest lineup of shift knob including the GS1R Red Anodized Knob, the GS2M Magma Shift Knob, and the limited pre-production GBK Weighted Golf Ball Knob.


A little TDI swapped Caddy action.

After about five minutes of watching this Passat get redlined during the burnout contest, the judges decided it was enough, and told him to cut it out. 


None of us expected this little Audi to bust out the best donuts of the weekend.  It's clear why he won the burnout contest. 

It seems like Jamie from Orchid Euro is always in front of a camera.  This time he's being interviewed by Volkswagen about all of the rad stuff he's got going on.

Spotted a Maxton Design front bumper splitter in the wild!  We are the exclusive dealer in the US of Maxton Design products.


Sometimes you just have to install a brand new lip when you get to the show.  Driving down to New Jersey from NYC can be a bit rough on low cars.

This is a green car.

On the way back to Cary from New Jersey, we got a chance to stop by Volkswagen/Audi headquarters to say hello to some friends and take a quick look around.

Down on the first floor there are two sections dedicated to showing off cars from both VW and Audi.

We all know carbon fiber = fast.


It seems that Audi may have won a few awards over the years.

One of the coolest things about the office was the design.

At first we thought these were nap pods.  Unfortunately they are just for private conversations.


On the Audi floor they managed to get this R8 LMP900 in by removing the windows.  We are pretty sure it's not going anywhere for a while.

Once we made it outside we found this Bugatti Veyron hidden in the bottom of a parking deck along with a ton of other awesome cars.

Volkswagen of America keeps all sorts of cool cars around that you wouldn't expect.


Some old school cool with this Karmann Ghia.

Custom Mocha Latte RS7 with the ridiculously awesome Audi Ceramic brakes.

It seems that Volkswagen is trying to get more in touch with the enthusiast community with a few of their show cars.

Who doesn't need a bright yellow TT-S?


The Pretoria wheels that the MK7 crowd keeps talking about seem to be coming to the US in 2017.

Then there's all of the stuff you aren't allowed to see that hides behind this door.
