For years Mobile Addictions has been serving Staten Island some of the best custom rides on the East Coast, winning awards, contests and accolades along the way. But that’s the past, and though maintaining that reputation is in their best interest, they’re taking a risk and expanding on an already powerhouse history. Xclusv Autosports is looking to dissolve that winning brand and big-name talent into one shop—which will become a strategic partner to both Mobile Addictions and D2 Forged Wheels—pushing their shop knowledge to the limits of the car-tuning world.
Not new—by the usual standards of a completely new shop without a drop of reputation to uphold—Xclusv Autosports is merging in order to provide a one-stop shop for customers who are used to outstanding quality but want more options. A new 6,800-square-foot shop features all new equipment and services: custom paint and bodywork, performance upgrades and, of course, world-class audio and video work. If you’re jealous of your car outclassing your wardrobe, XA even has a solution for that: a brand-new clothing and sneaker showroom.
With major deals in the works—hints of an account to handle the New York Jets exclusively—Xclusv Autosports is looking to better serve their customers with a knowledge of the game, more shop space and more one-of-a-kind content from years of experience. XA is ready for a new, greater experience. As far as the rest of the competition goes, only time will tell.
