Company of the Week: ECS Tuning

439382_x800

Love this company, I’ve been buying Euro equipment from them for the past 3 years and I love dealing with them. Their web-page is can be navigated on easily and they provide accurate descriptions and images of the items they sell. This is very important when you can’t look at a product on-site.

I also can relate to the history of Andrew Demrovsky (founder of ECS) immigrating to a new country looking for freedom and prosperity:

“Trying to escape religious persecution and a corrupt political class, Andrew Demrovsky set his sights on United States of America and the American dream. The dream of religious and Economic freedom was the driving force to immigrate with his entire family to the USA. In 1959 Andrew Demrovsky came to the United States with a family, a few suitcases, and 500 dollars. His exceptional talent and rigorous training as a machinist in his home country had earned him a sponsorship to the U.S., provided by a manufacturing company in need of his unique skill set.

When he had honored the employment agreement with his sponsor, he opened a small, two-bay auto repair shop in Norton, Ohio, in 1962, and Euro-Car Service was born. With his young son (and namesake) assisting him, Andrew worked exclusively on Volkswagen vehicles at a time before VW had become an automotive icon. Soon, his reputation as a skilled, honest craftsman with old world standards and a total commitment to customer satisfaction enabled him to develop a loyal and growing list of patrons.”

A Wimpering Dog……..Who Can’t Find His Friend.

Just like Ying + Yang, the moon and the sun, or leaves and butts; they all go together. Its sad to hear that the rivalry between two great automobiles might be ending. The two I’m talking about are the Mitsubishi Evolution (Evo) and the Subaru Impreza WRX STi (STi). These two have been going head to head ever since the rally days and forged enthusiasts and die hard fans with their on going war. Both cars equally having phenomenal performance specs; making fans strain when deciding which is the better of the two.

In the background one was clearly taking a lead. Subaru as a company was doing well in sales especially on their Outbacks, Legacy, and Impreza models. On the other hand Mitsubishi hasn’t seen good sales records in their automobiles in a while (especially in U.S. markets), making it more difficult for the company to produce the high performance sedan or reviving the 3000GT (GTO). However an improved Lancer has been released in Malaysia, so who knows!

Long story short this famous battle may be over, leaving the Subaru to prowl the streets sadly by itself. na peke yake.
