Now the big question is, when do you get the keys?
Haha, not for a while. I mean I get to drive it around and stuff, but he says there's no greater joy than working hard and buying myself one in the future. Never too late to set a goal right?

OP and his family aren't even Chinese, Taiwanese is the correct word. If you're jealous then just stay away lol.

OP curious as to how much one of these costs over there? Also, congrats to your dad! Have you driven it yet?
My family actually loves to insist that they are not Chinese, so you are right. As for the cost, it was close to...if I convert it to USD, $600,000 due to the crazy import tax, luxury tax, engine displacement tax, emissions tax, and the Novitec kit. And I have not driven it yet, I hope I can soon....

Ya, most of the roads here are pretty shitty. Luckily the car raises and lowers at the touch of a button fairly quickly. Even when raised, on ramps, still gotta be extremely careful.
