There are 2 reasons I decided to ceramic coat the complete Agency Power exhaust system on our Porsche 991 Turbo.  Reason numero uno is the performance factor and reason numero dos is all aesthetic.  After seeing how sick (badass, awesome, good looking, etc) the OEM exhaust on the Konigseigg we had here at the shop

Our new Mini Countryman S JCW is a super fun project car.  When you see these in stock form, you usually think and say, “ehhhhhh”.  But with a little bit of mods in the looks and power department, these become little rockets that can haul the family around.  Equipped with our VR Tuned ECU flash,

Project Cars are what makes the Vivid Racing brand famous and/or infamous.  There are times when we straight nail it, and this is one of those times.  With our old 997.2 Turbo S sporting the white body with blue chrome Niche wheels, we were just in love with that style and combo look.  So we

The Ford Focus is the car to have outside of the USA for tuners and enthusiasts.  Everything from the older Cosworth Escorts to the new RS400 and more.  The Focus ST that came to the states definitely changed my own perspective of Ford and brought many hot hatch fans over to the blue oval side.

Our Ford Focus ST project car is 1 year old and with under 3000 miles, she is barely broken in.  With the Agency Power widebody flares, 19 inch Niche 3-piece wheels, Agency Power full power upgrades, and a Cobb Accessport tune, this car is dialed.  But with all this perfection, it is missing 1 thing…
