While at Speedfest we got to see the unveiling of Adam’s GT-R, who’s headlights received some work from our friends over at Winnipeg HID.
So far Adam’s R35 has received a handful of modifications including dual intakes, a new mid-pipe, lowering springs and a Cobb Accessport. But what truly sets this car apart from other GT-R’s in the city are the headlights.
Winnipeg HID, a product of 3 years experience and countless HID installs, tackled the headlights on the GT-R to prep the car for the show.
Seeing so many vehicles out there with ‘plug-n-play’ HID kits Tom; Winnipeg HID’s owner, decided it was time to take matters into his own hands. With help from The Retrofit Source Inc. Tom began bringing in high quality HID products that were otherwise unavailable.
Winnipeg HID has 3 main objectives when installing HID systems into vehicles; safety, performance and quality. They are the only company that offers true HID projector retrofitting in all vehicles for maximum performance and safety on the highway at night with using only the highest quality of HID products so they will last our harsh weather conditions. We can create basic projector headlights for someone just looking for better light output in their car or we can go all out and make a custom one-off set of headlights for show cars, the possibilities are endless.
Winnipeg HID is currently working on launching their website; www.winnipeghid.ca, and will be expanding into a new shop this year that will be their main location dedicated to building custom headlights and selling high quality HID products.
We’re proud to see Winnipeg HID’s progress, and love the work they do, so much so that one of our photographers had Tom retrofit projectors into her Kia Koup.
What started off as just another Stage 2 STi, has evolved into something all it’s own over the course of a few years and many hours in the garage.
Last year at Driven we saw Josh’s car with a freshly painted engine bay, and a Process West V-mount setup. However, over the winter Josh decided to look for something to provide him with a little more response from the GTX3076 under the hood, and Grimmspeed had recently released their top-mount option for the STi.
It’s safe to say everyone knows Josh’s build, if not by the solid work, then certainly by the exhaust note. With a TurboXS catback Josh’s STi has one of the most distinguishable exhaust notes of any Subaru.
We’re pleased to say that Josh will be showing the beaSTi with us a Speedfest July 19th, at the RBC Convention Center, come down and check it out in person!
While it’s undecided what’s next for the beaSTi, we’re all excited to see where this car goes.

We’re a week away from Speedfest, and the hustle to get ready for the show is in full swing. After a day out at the Southbeach Casino car show we got the chance to photograph another one of the vehicles that will be showing with us July 19th at the RBC Convention Centre.
We love what Ryan’s doing with the truck and can’t wait to see what happens with it next.
Taking a break from lowered cars to photograph something that doesn’t have to worry about ditches, much less speed bumps was a nice break.
With a freshly installed grille from Ryan’s sponsor Royalty Core we had to put the lightbar to use for a couple shots!
Not to mention the beautiful work on the headlights by Winnipeg HID
If you’re in the Winnipeg area July 19th, make sure to stop in at the RBC Convention Centre and check out the Motive Empire booth at Winnipeg Speedfest!
