iM Feature: Almond Deguzman’s 335i WORK beast

Almond and I have known each other a short while and we met while we both used to work at Apple. Kind of a weird place to meet a car guy – you’d think all you would meet are people that want to make Steve Jobs rich. Little did I know that Almond – despite his name (that kind of threw me off), was a baller and a half. Working at Apple just for the hell of it, checking in on foursquare and becoming the Mayor of Holt Renfrew every other day and deciding he was going to take the day off from his real job when I just got into mine.

We had been tweeting each other back and forth about how he was getting coilovers installed and each time I saw a tweet about it, I would simply reply “dump it”. Up until last week, Almond tweeted back and said he wanted a photoshoot. Done. I want to see if he even took my tweets into consideration. To be quite honest, I’m not even sure what his car had done or even looked like aside from the sub-par quality pictures from his iPhone (ha!)

    Looks great! One of the few Euro cars we've equipped with that style of Work wheel. Keep it clean!
