Taste, Exquisite Taste
When it comes to car modification in the Philippines there are a few names that stand out from the rest. Keith Bryan Haw has been in the scene for more than 10 years. With the different styles that car shows attract he has been constant on how he executes his builds, exquisite taste. On a rainy holiday we met to shoot one of his projects for 2014, an E92 M3. Enjoy the photos.
Keith has been joining major car shows in our country as he started to modify cars since highschool.
He is always on top of the game in Manila, as his resume includes an Lexus Is200 with the first 1JZ swap (2005?), a drift ready S14 (2007?), a BMW Z4, Porsche Cayman and a Lexus IS300.
He admits that he doesn’t concentrate on one brand as he mixes different styles.
As the official distributor of DPE Wheels he chose a set of CS5.V2’s in 20 x 9 and 20 x 11 staggered spec.
What I love about the car is how he payed attention to details, the car is painted Jerez Black Metallic while retaining carbon fiber accents on its Vorsteiner kit.
Keith never keeps his cars in stock form, he used Recaro Sportster CS performance seats for the E92.
He installed an ARC Titanium Shift Knob which was originally in his Lexus IS300, he says that it is memorable to him as he used his own machine to re-thread it to M3 spec.
The car serves as his daily driver in Manila. Future plans is a possible supercharger for the S65 engine.
Did I mention that the car produces such an amazing sound? It matches his lifestyle as a DJ/owner of numerous hotspots in Manila.
More photos from our shoot.
There goes a recipe of balance which includes form and function.
As I speak, parts from all over the world are coming in for his new project. A build that raises the bar once again. Stay tuned for that. Hope you enjoyed this post.
