F1 Australia - P1 and Q

On last practice round, we finally saw some nice, warm, and most important, dry weather. That actually meant that teams can finally show what they really got!

And they showed. Very fast Lewis Hamilton in McLaren took first place from Roman Grosjean in Lotus in last seconds, shaving his time by just 0.077s, and finishing with time of 1m25.681s. Behind them was Mark Webber in Red Bull struggling to catch up.

After Audi presented their new, facelifted A5 Coupe with 3.0L  V6 engine, German tuning company Senner once again comes with their solution for this lovely Coupe.

They've played with the engine's ECU a litlle bit, replaced stock air filter with a sport one, added custom exhaust system and the numbers gone from stock 328hp and 440Nm of torque to 371hp with 500Nm of torque. Pure magic.

It officially started! F1 is back!

So it officially started, F1 is back, and for every single F1 fan it's the most exciting weekend of the year!

Although fair part of the Europe (including me) had problems getting up around 2 AM to watch first practice session, don't worry - you haven't missed a lot. The rain was pouring before the session started, soaking the fair amount of the track. Of course that meant slower times, full-wet tires, less laps..etc.

Vokswagen Golf GTi MK6 by CFC


We, here at PS-Garage, like things that are different and when I've seen what CFC(car films components) did to this Golf, I said, wow. It might not be on your taste, but German tuners have never been shy to try out color combinations, but this one really stands out, in a positive way.

CFC is a German company specialized on vinyl wraps and tuning builds. Their latest project, involves an MK6 Golf GTi, which they wrapped in matte grey vinyl, leaving the wing mirrors cap's in carbon fiber wrap, as well as the roof. The logos, fuel cap and right front fender got wrapped in comic style vynils, which brings the car a lot of character in tuning scene.

BMW 1M Coupe by Hartge


Hartge, the untamed BMW tuner strikes again. Well known for their flawless M engine transplants, they couldn't have gone passed the 1M coupe. 

This time, they kept the original engine, but installed the "Hartge powerbox", which consits in an electronically tweaking and new exhaust system, which takes the power output to almost 400HP and 530Nm of torque. The tuner states that after their program, the car has a better fuel economy by 0.5L/100km.

Hartge also touched the looks, ride height has been lowered by 30mm, new choice of lightweight rims, new lid and roof spoiler, new exhaust tips, Hartge badges and bespoke floor mats.
