Welcome to our second installment of our Scene Theory series. This time we dive into what it means to be JDM in America. The acronym JDM has become more than a three letter abbreviation; it's become a lifestyle, a scene, a brand and a way of expression. On the most basic level, JDM refers to the "Japanese domestic market"⎯the heavyweight of the import scene. Honda, Subaru, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota⎯all of these manufacturers are of the JDM variety.
For this week’s installment, we take a look at the transformation the exterior of the car is currently undergoing. To take the exterior of the BRZ to the next level, we turned to our friends at SLVA Automotive Studio to help dial in the overall look. Their experience speaks for itself, so we knew they’d be the best to set apart the BRZ from the rest of the crowd.

Bigger, stronger, faster, louder: this is the only way that we can describe last weekend’s fifth chapter of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack in Coalinga, California. One sold-out event, one half mile, two days, and eighty degrees in the middle of the desert. Completely booked Best Western. Two hundred drivers. Twenty-two world-class sponsors. Seven hundred spectators. Fifty media personnel. An average of fourteen hundred horsepower. One hundred seventy mph average trap speeds, and one three-way twerk team. Records were broken, engines were blown, heads were lifted, and GTRs were flipped. This is the event known as Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack. This is an event you cannot miss.
What started out as an idea, gradually spiraled into something amazing. We picked a set of locations and assembled our small team of automotive photographers and videographers known as #TeamRevv and set out on an adventure. From Los Angeles to San Diego and finally to Las Vegas, we documented our experience along the way. This is the story behind what went down at the first of many ModLife Tours. The people we met, the cars we shot and the places we went.
