Haha, Jim, it was great haning out u and u loved ones. You guys are cool people. I was so distracted by eberything else, I totally forgot to demo your car and check out the "sparkles." Next time...
Alpine gets a +10 in my book. This thing was great. FIVE rounds of raffles!!!! Free In-N-out, snacks, thai food, refreshments, models cars, pens, posters, lanyards, shirts, live music, rock climbing, and friendly staff. Also free sunburn!
The event was great. Excellent food, games, music, cars, RAFFLES. Only like 1/3 people showed up though. I got to meet Jon Whitledge and his famous Dodge Sprinter. Its probably the best system I've heard. I also got to do the V-power experience which is a booth with 2000 RMS pumped full of bass. I hope Alpine does another one. I took some pictures I would like to share. The lower res pics are from my phone because my camera was full. Enjoy! http://s377.photobucket.com/albums/o...akaveli7hadon/
I know I'm a little bit late for this, but I think Alpine did an awesome job with their Customer Appreciation Day. I know the turnout was a bit smaller than they had expected, but that meant more prizes for everyone to win. Some lucky SOBs got to win 2 prizes or more. I wish I could have won myself a nice W505 or an amplifier.
I stayed with a few other SQ heads till almost 8PM. It was nice to talk to fellow SQ ppl and other DIYers (james_bang and his buddy, Richard the Solara guy, Big Red and some other ppl I forgot) there. The Alpine staff was very friendly and the In-N-Out burgers were pretty good. I didn't like the fake Thai food very much though. They had some pretty nice giveaways/goodie bags. They must have spent a lot of money on the event. I hope they have it again next year.
Wow, what a day. ALPINE nows how to throw a party. I was parked in the front row, picked for a professional photo shoot in a tent they had setup in the back, interviewed by Eri Moriyama, Steve Brown checked out my car, he also gave me tour of the shop, pulled my car into his bay and had my H100 Imprint processor setup.
Nice to meet you James. Those are some small drivers in your doors
