We came up with the idea of gathering these special little Golfs back in July ...

It’s an amazing city, with a unique vibe and a wide variety of attractions, some of them related to the auto world, and some not. You’ve got architecture, history, culture, glamour and much more in between, so when it comes to big cities ...

Minis, Racing And A Touch Of California

From time to time, we get invited to a garage that stays with us for a long time after we’ve visited and photographed it. Even now, upon thinking of the unique experience we had at Tureanu Designs (former Custom Cars), I rejoice in the things we got to see there and the amazing projects they have done throughout the years...

A Tale Of Three Cities - Part 2: Brasov

Driving from Sibiu, through Avrig and Fagaras, was quite a road trip for us. Amazing scenery, and some good things waiting for us in Brasov. The city wasn’t very far, and the drives through Transilvania are always a pleasure.

The Drift Child

The smell of burnt rubber, on a cold winter’s day, the screeching sounds of cars twisting and turning in ways that might seem unnatural for a normal car, with a normal driver, these are the sensations we cherish the most and why we get up in the morning and spend hours in the blistering cold or unbearable heat. To capture the most authentic car-related experiences ...

Tunedside Offroad Experience 2020

Hard roads, solid cars, and lots of fun. The basic recipe for offroading, an activity that’s been with us for a long while, and, most likely, will still be here, or at least until we’ve invented flying cars. However, before said cars arrive, we’ve embarked on a different journey from the usual experiences we cover here at Tunedside. No fancy wheels, no stanced coupes...
