If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for all things Air Lift Performance, Rotiform wheels, and in-car entertainment, then Car Audio & Security (CAS) is the place to visit. Being the largest distributors in the UK and Europe, they’ve been on our radar ever since we started Slam Sanctuary. They’re well known for having some of the most notable demo cars in the car industry and car community – you will have no doubt seen a few of them at the big car shows such as Ultimate Dubs and Players. Every year, CAS open their premises to the public to show off their latest cars and what they have to offer. To top things off, they also offer a massive sale on most products for one weekend only, which certainly attracts people from all over the country. This year, the team have expanded their HQ with the addition of yet another warehouse – a great opportunity to pack it full of more show cars. We made the trip down on Sunday, the final day of the Open Weekend, to take a look at their 2017 demo vehicles and everything else that turned up. Check out our highlights below.

So, yet another incredible turnout for Car Audio & Security throughout their two-day event, with customers turning up from all over the UK to pick up a bargain. The quality of the CAS demo cars gets better and better each year, which just shows how far Rotiform wheels and Air Lift suspension have come in the last few years, now catering for some of the most high performance new vehicles (in addition to everything else) on the market. It’s never been easier to turn your run-of-the-mill car into something unique and above the rest. Car Audio & Security can make it happen for you. If you missed the event, head over to their website (caraudiosecurity.com), and see what they have to offer. Check out our Bonus Gallery below for even more cars from the day, too. We’ll be back next year!

Slam Sanctuary has just hit another milestone! One year has passed since debuting our booth, clothing range and pop-up store back at Ultimate Stance 2015. That’s one whole year of taking our brand and products around the UK and Europe, and I have to say, the reception has been phenomenal and better than I could’ve imagined. You are all making my dream come true, so thank you – every single one of you who continues to read the blog, purchase our products and visit us when we are out at events. I’m seeing more and more people wearing our clothing at shows – it means so much that so many of you want to spend your hard earned cash on supporting the brand. With that said, the return of Ultimate Stance this year meant that we had to top our previous efforts. Naturally, we returned to our favourite spot, the VIP carpeted hall in the Telford International Centre, with four of the UK’s best BMWs… representing the two worlds of suspension that we now offer, with Bekir’s E39 & Az’s E92 both on air, and Nick’s E34 & Alex’s E36 showing what can still be achieved on static coilovers. As well as having our new Autumn/Winter clothing collection available, we also brought down our sofa and TV with Xbox One S and Forza Horizon 3 for people to play during the day, it turned out to be a great hangover cure for those not wanting to do much after a heavy night of partying. Ultimate Stance is always the perfect end-of-season event – there’s always a huge variety of cars on display, and I’d say it’s a show completely different people and cars from the automotive world finally come together for one final blowout. Take a look at the highlights…

Ultimate Stance really is a great way to end the car show season. Turning into an overnight event for those displaying cars and trading, it’s a bit more chilled, allowing more time to be spent with friends that probably won’t be reunited again until next year when the season starts again with Ultimate Dubs at the same venue. With some cool touches, like the Wheel Whores display, a Retro Hall packed with classic cars and retro gaming consoles free to play, and even a gathering of Lowriders outdoors… there was plenty going on to keep everyone occupied for the day. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed this season of events in the UK, plus the few we were lucky enough to head over to mainland Europe for. Our next show will indeed be Ultimate Dubs in March 2017 – keep an eye social media and save the date when it’s announced. In the meantime, we have plenty of content coming up to keep you entertained during the winter months, so check back to slamsanctuary.com soon.
