Hue’s Modified BMW 135i


Written by: Ben Duen

First time I met Hue was over 14 yrs ago. It was in the back of Brian’s commercial warehouse–a bunch of us decided to wet down the industrial parking lot and have some fun with the cars. We all did our best Drift King impression of Keiichi Tsuchiya and took turns going sideways. Word got out and more cars showed up with each car getting more crazy than the last. Then, this white FWD Honda Civic coupe appears and screams across the lot, sideways left, sideways right, 360, 720, 1080, 2160, and basically Ken Block shit but 14 yrs earlier. The air was thick with burnt tire aroma and smoke–Hue gets out, and says……..’sup’. The rest is history.

He’s come a long way since those younger days and has had a colorful history playing with Civics, Evo, G35, S2000..each project car was more hardcore than the last. But his current 135i project? #Gaddam. M3’s give him the right of way when the light turns green. He’s showing the scene what he is truly capable of with this beast. You know what the scary thing is? It’s still only partly finished. ‘Sup.’
