Extreme Dimensions is famous for its wide range of body kits and accessories, including carbon fiber parts from its Carbon Creations division.
Although specializing in Japanese import models, they also cover domestic and European cars. The list of manufacturers includes everything from VW to Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Mini to Porsche, Volvo, etc – you can find it all on their website at extremedimensions.com
Last weekend they held an event that combined an open house with a car show. It took place appropriately at their Southern California headquarters in Fullerton, CA from 11a-3p. The entire event was free to enter and there was a long line all afternoon for the great-smelling BBQ grille and drinks that were also provided free. So we gave our Project M3 a chance to stretch its legs on the run down to the event.
As an extra bonus, Extreme Dimensions (ED) provided raffle prizes and gave 30% discounts on all their products.
Having been to a few open house events, the attendance can be a little sparse, but not this one. ED had pulled in the cars and their giant warehouse was surrounded on all sides by high-quality modified cars.
Inevitably, the majority were Japanese imports, but it’s still interesting to see how these cars are put together. It’s even more interesting to see how the VIP movement and now the hella-flush style are directly influenced by European tuning traditions.
Perhaps the best news for us was the large number of European cars in attendance. There was everything from a Mini Convertible covered in pink flowers to a modified BMW M5, M3, a Mk1 GTI covered in carbon and a group of Mercedes. Perhaps one of the more impressive was the Merc CL from DPE wheels, finished in matte black and sporting the company’s latest one-piece rim.
Ducking out of the sun, we took a tour of the ED’s facility, which is dominated by its enormous warehouse. The shelves were stacked 30ft high with body kit parts for almost every car imaginable. They certainly do carry a great deal of inventory for instant gratification if you’re looking to complete a project in a hurry.
The warehouse was also home to VIP Modulr wheels, which was showing off a new Euro-style mesh-type wheel that’s due to be released soon, so keep an eye out for that.
