ModBargains.com - THE Official SEMA Picture Thread



If you're unsure of what SEMA is, it is one of the largest automotive specialty product trade shows in the world. We look at hundreds upon thousands of new products brought to the market. We will see new products, and we will also see what you guys most hear about, the custom cars, and projects that are on display as well.

Of course what I'll do for you here as we head off first thing tomorrow morning (Tuesday), is to update this thread, as much as I physically can, from my lovely phone, showing off new products, great looking cars and more... Of course if any of you have any want to see a specific booth or any specific items, I'll do my absolute best to take pictures at that booth, but please note, if you walk the entire SEMA show, it equates to roughly 50 miles, not including what's outside, and because I'm not that in shape, I can only promise to do my best.
:lolhit:

I hope you enjoy the photos... Of course some of these are new products, maybe not listed yet, so if you have any questions on what you see, let me know... This was quite an interesting show, I've only been one other time, but I can easily tell you that this time around, we certainly saw everything (trust me, my back, and my feet can tell you we walked everything)... I should have put a pedometer on to see how much, but typically every hall will be roughly 13-14 miles if you walk every single aisle, in which we did, for a total of 39-42 miles in the main hall, not even including the AAPEX show, which I would say maybe added another 15 miles on top of that, for a nice total right around 50 miles in total, not including walking to and from the halls in between.

I want to thank our very special manufacturers we work with as well, they make this show just that much more interesting for us, and we always appreciate their hospitality, and their couches, and chairs to allow us to actually relax during this show walking around!

Thank you AFE!


Thank you KW Suspension!


Thank you Forgestar/iForged!


Thank you REMUS!


Thank you Hankook Tires!


Thank you Ohlins!


Thank you Injen!


Thank you Cusco!


Thank you Falken Model!


Anyway, onto the car photos, I hope you enjoy. I took over 550+ Photos, but here's my favorite selection of roughly 300 photos:

Of course most of the highlight of every show is the cars that really wow us. New designs, new wheels, new insight into a the creative world...

This year, was certainly the year for the Scion FR-S, no doubt about it. I would imagine, in total there are over 40-50+ Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ's at this show... Here's a compilation of all of them:

Of course what we all like to see is new and old technology and products. Here are some of the new ideas and pictures from other manufacturers that were indeed our favorites:

Another awesome part of SEMA is the amount of race cars at the show... Some seriously well done, and of course, some the ultimate of the ultimate, including a Renault Formula one car driven by Kimi/RoGro:

A lot of what you don't see at SEMA is the AAPEX show that is associated with it. I didn't get a ton of photos, I only took a few for the highlights but this was probably the most hilarious part of the day. I'm sure you can see why:

Not a lot of blogs will show you the after hours stuff, but I took a few as well of how we spent our nights, which were mostly filled with partying, booze, gambling and great food:























Certainly was a fun trip! Thanks for taking a look!
