Night Import: Photography and Words by William Lee

LTBMW 2012-10
Good morning everyone! I think that applies to those who live in the US right now, but wherever you are, welcome back to Night Import (^-^)v It's been a busy week like usual with car shows and meets. You know how it goes down in California, especially after winter, so expect a lot more coverages this year. I really wanted to focus more on features, but the time to actually go out during the weekdays and do photoshoots is not working out, so my apologies to all the car owners I promised to shoot their rides. It will happen soon, so give me a bit more time! But in the positive side for all you Night Import fans, a coverage should be good enough during your break time or if you don't have anything to do.
Last week, there were 2 places I needed to stop by to do coverage; LTBMW's Greet & Meet and Hot Import Nights. I was unsure if I had time to stop by LTBMW's meet because I got a sudden call on Friday asking to work on Saturday, so my time schedule got pretty fuked up. Luckily, I ended early and had time to grab something to eat and head down to LTBMW's meet. Yeap~ I promised myself not to attend 2 car meets/shows this year, but it's not working out because I fuking love cars. :D
Let's get on with the coverage.

LTBMW 2012-2
I've realized I went to almost every LTBMW's meet after they've changed locations. I think it started back in early 2011 when I didn't know anyone and just went to check out the scene. Since then, every time when LTBMW had something, I went because the turnout was amazing. After knowing John Zhang, aka 1013mm, it got even better! Last week's meet was overcrowded with people and BMWs.
In this photo, one guy is taking a shot of HRE's new wheel.

LTBMW 2012-3
I'm not sure if HRE came out last year, but for this year, a few staffs were doing coverage and brought out some cars because of a good relationship with LTBMW and 1013mm.

LTBMW 2012-4
I arrived around at 11:30am and cars were constantly coming in.

Of course, it was mostly BMWs.

LTBMW 2012-19
Ah~!!!! Those wheels looked really familiar when I saw this car in front of the shop and later realized it was the 'Blurple' 3 series I featured 1 year ago when it was actually Blurple. Check out its feature here.

LTBMW 2012-88
Ain't that sexy?

LTBMW 2012-21
I think many BMW owners are changing their wheel setup from CCWs to something else. All I remember was seeing tons of BMWs on CCWs at meets and events last year.

LTBMW 2012-22
Concave madness.

Depending on the wheel choice, it makes a huge difference in the car's appearance. Volk TE37s look great on any car.
