Almost exactly one year ago, we had the pleasure of meeting Tomi and Tuukka from Tuning FI magazine from Finland. They saw our LS400 in Las Vegas at the SEMA Show and they asked us if they could shoot it for their magazine. The issue came out and Tuning FI was kind enough to send us some copies. Big shoutout to them and a big thanks for the feature! We also want to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor for their support!
On one of our recent trips to visit Beat-Sonic in California, we had the opportunity to test the Interface Cable IF6 harness and we were pleasantly surprised with the results. This product lets you hook up your iPhone or iPod to your aftermarket dual din head unit to display your phone’s screen on your head unit. All controls and commands are still done through your iPod or iPhone but the advantage is displaying it on your headunit’s larger screen. We found that YouTube and Pandora worked, so any saved music and videos on your iPhone are also compatible with this product. This harness also charges your iPhone or iPod while it is hooked up. Overall, this is an inexpensive product that is not difficult to install, easy to use, and provides a solution for makes and models where no other options are available.
If you have any other questions regarding this product or any other Beat-Sonic products, please contact us at 480-921-2995 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Navigation application (Waze) on the iPhone worked to our surprise. Compare the size of the iPhone screen vs. the head unit screen.

As many of you know by now, our LS400 was featured in the June issue of Super Street Magazine this year. Its hard to believe, but it has been 9 months ago since this all started to come about. It began in November last year at SEMA. Our car was spotted by Super Street and asked me if we were interested in having it featured in the magazine. We agreed and we exchanged contact information. Then in December, Sean from Super Street came to Arizona and met us at our shop with his assistant to shoot the car. We ended up going to the Tempe Center for Arts, which is a really unique building near the shop, and Sean proceeded to take some awesome shots of the car. After that, it was all a waiting game. The 5 months or so after the shoot seemed really long until the June issue finally came out. We want to send another big thanks to the Super Street team for offering us this opportunity and making it happen.

Our good friends at Beat-Sonic were kind enough to invite us and our LS400 out to their booth at AutoCon LA. It was one of the biggest or the biggest booth at the show with a total of 13 cars on display. And we can’t forget about the lovely Yukata (traditional Japanese summer garment) ladies for greeting people and posing for pictures. Despite the 100+ degree weather, we had an awesome time hanging out with everyone. Big thanks to Beat-Sonic, Airrunner and everyone else who helped make it happen. We look forward to more California car shows in the near future!
