Before going to drive and shoot ASI's F430, there were fears that I might have a PF Chang's experience-Chinese food cooked by non-Chinese never tastes right. In this case, an Italian car tuned by Japanese could be disastrous. Luckily, that isn't the case with ASI's work. The quality is world class, the attention to detail obsessive, the finished product lust-worthy.
