Wald International 2013 Lexus LS

Wald released a pair of images but no information whatsoever on the so-called Executive Line package for the LS, which will likely be officially introduced at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon in January next year.

Besides the sports suspension that drops the ride height of the Lexus model and the larger alloy wheels shod in very low profile performance tires that both offer the car a more aggressive stance, Wald has also developed a styling kit comprising a deep front apron, protruding side skirts, a discreet deck lid spoiler and a rear apron-diffuser combo.

VIP Auto Salon 2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport Supercharged

The Orange County, California-based tuner muscled up the premium mid-size sedan by bolting on Apexi CG SPL custom supercharger kit to its 3.5-liter V6 engine, which in naturally aspirated guise, delivers 306-horses. VIP Auto Salon did not say how much power the V6 gained with the addition of a supercharger.

The rest of the tune includes a WALD International Aero package, a Brembo HighPerformance GT Brake kit, Vossen CV7 20-inch wheels in Yokohama S.Drive tires size 255/30-20 front and 275/30-20 rear, a PTS Joe Z Series True Dual Header-Back exhaust system and a RSR Super i coilover system.

Japanese tuner, Wald International is taking one idea and turning it into about 20 with its ongoing Black Bison tuning packages.


The Mercedes CLS Black Bison is all about the black, inside and out. Aside from that, the CLS also gets upgraded with LED daytime running lights, sport front fenders, side skirts, a rear bumper with LED brake lights, new exhaust tips, and new trunk and roof spoilers. The package sits on a special set of wheels painted in black with a design specially created for the new CLS.


Celebrate International Zine Month!

The history of zines in popular culture dates back to the mid-twentieth century when science fiction fans created their own publications. By the late 1970s, zines were synonymous with the punk rock DIY attitude – anyone with access to a photocopier could produce a zine about their favorite music. In addition to documenting local or regional fan culture, zines often include interviews with performers and reviews of concerts that cannot be found in mainstream publications, so they make a fantastic and unique popular music research resource!

The 1990s featured a resurgence of 1970s DIY punk attitude which found a home in the Riot Grrrl movement. Zines like Grrrl Germs, Satan Wears a Bra, and Girly Mag fostered local feminist networks and fought against the commercialization of female identities in popular culture.

Wald International Mercedes-Benz Viano

The Japanese tuner did its best to offer the minivan a more dynamic and racier look with its aero package that’s available for both the pre- and facelift versions of the Viano.

The kit includes a new front bumper with a lip spoiler and LED daytime running lights, front fender vents, side skirts, a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and dual exhaust pipes, and a roof spoiler.
