The holidays are zooming up faster than ever! If you’re anything like us, you may have, uh, well not quite gotten started on the whole gift giving thing. Sure, there was all those Black Friday deals to take advantage of, or the deals all throughout the year to really lock in a gift early, but here we are. Early December and you’re cruising for something great. Well, have we got the blog for you! This time on the VIP Interiors blog we are doing something a bit outside our usual realm and that’s looking at gifts to give car enthusiasts this holid...

Welcome back to the VIP Blog! Fall has truly arrived this year and we are zooming quick into the winter holidays. For a lot of us, that means taking trips ‘back home,’ or visiting the relatives to share dinners, gifts, turkey, and general good cheer! While we here in Arizona rarely have to deal with the wintery accessory called ‘snow,’ when we make these trips (sometimes across country or even further!) we find ourselves driving through a foreign winterscape. For that, we here at VIP, wanted to compile a helpful post on all things for the seaso...
acid rain

Welcome back to the VIP European Auto Interiors blog! This month we’ve been on a bit of a rainy kick, covering topics of note when it comes to inclement weather. Last time, we discussed some safety tips for driving in the rain and how to stop your car hydroplaning. This time around, we decided we wanted to talk about what kind of damage to your interior and exterior rain can do, which may surprise you. Acid Rain The rain that falls from the clouds and the rain that ends up splashing on us or our cars isn’t necessarily the exact same.  The wat...
driving in the rain

Welcome back to the VIP European Auto blog! Last month we had an in-depth drive on some of the best car shows and groups to take part in over the coming month. This time, we wanted to mention some safety tips specifically for driving in the rain. While Arizona isn’t the wettest place on Earth, we do occasionally have these bursts and we figure it’s worth mentioning. Driving in The Rain Few moments can simultaneously be as peaceful, relaxing, meditative, and stressful, white-knuckle grip inducing like driving in the rain. The steady pitter-pat...

Welcome back to the VIP European Auto Interiors blog! Last time we talked a lot about ways to beat the heat, get outta the sun during these swelteringly hot days, and today we are going in a somewhat similar vein.

Temperatures should be cooling, god willing, and that means it’s time to show off your wheels. Without any further ado let’s get into it, here are THE upcoming car and auto events i...

Welcome back to VIP European Auto blog and part two of Driving in 1776. Thinking back on transportation in the 18th and 19th centuries is amazing how far along we have come.

There you are, watching the Declaration of Independence being signed in the year 1776. It’s hot inside and outside, showers are not an everyday occurrence so there is a slight smell, and all you can think about is entering your nice air conditioned Tesla vehicle. Well, actually you didn’t have a Tesla back then … or air conditioning, or cars in general.Since it’s around that time of year with a National Holiday, many of us wonder how people survived back in the beginnings of America. There was no plumbing, heating, air conditioning, or elec...

Summer is fully here. There’s not deny it. May’s weather was touch and go there for a bit, but now in June the sun has fully settled into place, turning us all to ash. We have all had that terrible experience of entering our cars to have our backs seared to a nice crisp.Did that picture give you the willies like it did for us? It’s awful, right?Now, you gotta imagine, that kind of heat cannot be good on the leather… can it? As the temp heats up and the sun spends more time beating down it’s important to take a few precautionary steps fo...

If you adequately prepare and pack your bags and car for the adventure, you’re bound to ...
