EuEx / European Experience 2017 Event Coverage

Event Coverage

This was our first official year attending European Experience as a vendor, and we did so in partnership with USP Motorsports, under their umbrella so to speak. We've distilled our product offerings that we bring to shows in an attempt to cut through some of the noise and encourage our customers to become familiar with our core offerings. While we still stock a large variety of brands and parts in house for web orders, we feel it's important to make the shows specifically about Black Forest Industries and what we add to the community. And speaking of the community, it...

Worthersee 2016 - Euro Trip

Event Coverage

 It's difficult to describe exactly what a trip like this means to a VW/Audi enthusiast, or even for a "car guy" in general. Luckily, most of you reading this already understand. It is the fulfillment of a dream, the marking off of a bucket list item. For years we read articles about, saw videos about and discussed loosely making a trip to the biggest VW/Audi show in the world - Worthersee treffen. Our discussions suddenly became more real when Jamie from Orchid Euro contacted us about helping him with his build for Worthersee 2016. He wanted to completely restore, in...

6th Annual Oktoberfest Event Coverage

Event Coverage

It's hard to believe it's been 6 years since we first opened our doors up to the community and began hosting our favorite event on the calendar.

In part, this could be due to the weather. Timing is everything when it comes to the forecast and we could not have engineered a better...

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...

APR Conference 2016

Event Coverage

APR was back at it again this year with their annual dealer conference. While there was arguably not a great variety of new bits to speak on, one of if not the most important products was there on display- APR's famed Stage III Turbo Upgrade for the MK7 / MQB platform. This time APR has been able to squeeze out an incredibly impressive 522 hp from the willing 2.0T motor by cramming a significantly larger Borg Warner twin scroll EFR7163 turbocharger into the engine bay. Utilizing a few more additional supporting modifications APR achieved 10 second quarter mile passes and...
