im trying to get led's as well...so hopefully i can get it all done hahahaha

if we really are going to meet...what places are we looing for?
I also read about the AFE filter, looks like a nice cheap way to get some performance enhancement. Where did you get it in HK? Did you go for the oil based or dry filter? Does it make any noticeable difference? Thanks.

I bought it through the official seller on the marketplace..go check it out...I think they are restocking it rght now as they were sold out completely.

I went for the oiled filter...i heard that going up around 70 mpg should give you couple of good hp gain but there is no way you can do such a speed here.

it just helps your car breath better and feel quicker in pick up...but if you're looking to drill into deep performance or looking for gruppe m...then you can forget about this...

dig more and see how other people feels...i think during the colder days..it will be much better off telling the dfference then hahahaha

Nice to join the crew!

I am planning on dropping the car, but my M3 equipped with EDC, any recommendations?

Checked AFE's website but they don't list any HK reseller on the site. Can you email or PM me on where you got yours? Thanks.

Hi Hankit, nice to meet you and the rest!

I heard from my sales that there are under 20 sedan delivered in HK, where there are over 100+ C63. I feel great being exclusive.

Any recommendation on lowering spring, I have EDC equipped.

Thanks,
Michael

you can but the thing is you will need to purchase the "test car" plates...which is expensive since your car is LHD. The 2nd thing is you will have to pay import tax or sth like that..which is another big load...check with the transportation depart in HKG...

Dinan just has the spring available, but very pricey.

thanks for the info, test car plates wouldnt matter to me, since i will probably only drive on weekends like i do here in the States. Im wondering how much the tax will be...if its ridiculously high maybe ill just buy a new one in HK.

Another alternative is import the car to ShenZhen, i got family there that can get me dual plates for mainland/HK and perhaps ill just keep the car in HK...

yeah if you can get dual plate...that will work...but again..if the tax is equal getting a new one here...then there is no point of bring it over...

That's not surprise. I order mine in June and by that time, Rays said available (production in August) in September but since then, orders have been adding up from all over the world including Japan itself. But all I can say is that it's worth.

hi cclboss,

Here is mine, does your car equipped with EDC? and are you planning to lower it? I hate the big gap between the fender and the wheels makes the car look like a SUV....but I am worry that if I just change the spring it will dramatically shorten the life of the shocks....

And any of you have/had experience with Neez 7model wheels, I love it and now deciding between the Neez and LM-R....and suggestions?




Cheers,
Mike
