VW Atlas and Tiguan MQB Performance Upgrades

Some years ago right before I started working here at ECS, I had always associated our products with typical performance platforms. The rest of the models offered by European automakers just didn’t have that ‘enthusiast’ owner base that others do, like the GTI, M3, or S4. However, we offer more than just support for those [...]

Winter Project Car Ideas

If you’re in the market for a new headache (project car,) there’s no better time to get started than in the winter. You’re not going to be driving, you spend a lot of time at home, and need something to keep that seasonal depression at bay. Why not take advantage of those aspects and do [...]

Riverside Chattanooga Fall 2020 Event Coverage

After I witnessed what was possibly the worst example of ‘car enthusiasm’ at Ocean City last weekend, Chattanooga Tennessee’s Riverside Fall 2020 was as wonderful an experience as it always has been for me and an opposite experience to H2Oi.

Enthusiast Built: Evan’s VW MK5 R32

Greatest hits albums have always been a sore subject with me. While I enjoy hearing all the subjectively ‘best’ songs by my favorite artists, I have always lamented the compartmentalizing nature of compilations that pick and choose from other albums.
