New User from Hong Kong

Hi RX7club.com!

My name is Adriel and I am based in Hong Kong (formerly Shanghai, New York, and LA). I drive and work on a 1998 Nissan 180sx, but am planning soon to become an owner of a 1996+ RX7, which I will be shipping in from Japan.

My car:


I enjoy driving, working on my car, and travel, and look forward to contributing to the forum!

Awesome!!
Good luck on the transition.. you'll find that parts for the FD are like 1.5x - 2x more expensive than for the S13... It's insane... But hopefully worth it. ;-)

Thabks, yes, hopefully you will! A random instagrammer messaged me when he saw me driving here, and a fellow form member (above) also saw me! LOL I guess I'm easy to spot (hear) with my 100+ dB exhaust 😁😁

Welcome fellow Hongie! I was back there in December but I don’t think I see an FD this time, last time I went back I saw a few on the road.

rxtasy she's the OEM red as far as I can tell! This was just under a street light which had a very warm color temperature.

ZE Power MX6 it's a 1999!

THANKS guys!
