The owner BOUGHT this car (no lease) and says in China he can sell it for 500K.......but he is going to keep it. BTW the owner is only 20 years old,and a student......has a R32 AND a brand new A3 as his "beater cars".........man I thought I was a baller...guess not!lol

Damn, that's pimp! So there are only 2 on the island? I thought there were more? I know there is another one that's a (dolphin) grey color. The owner works at the Paradise Pages building in Halawa Industrial area...I think he does, I haven't seen it in a while though.

He says that there used to be 4 here...now there is only 2.He went down to buy the other one so he could take it to China and make 400K profit,but it was just sold by Audi right before he had a chance to pick it up.Audi got it on a trade in for a Lambo Murcielago......I was talking about going to China with this guy and starting up a tuning shop,probably will never happen,but it is cool that the idea is out there.He said in China VW/Audi is like Toyota/Honda here........they are EVERYWHERE!!

Wow, I had no idea that they were that popular in China? I know China got the A6 w/ the extended wheelbase.
Well, your Idea is definetly worth a shot. Just gotta get somebody reliable to run your shop when you're here. [:D]

Ummm the Chinese Audi market is bigger than the US market. A6s run around more often than friggen Civics here. They just recently got the A4 over there (B6 and maybe now B7). The key is though...their Audis are made in China!

Yes,the Chinese are taking over!lol They manufacture VW,Audi,BMW and Mercedes there!! I unwrap OEM VAG parts and they say........VW/Audi made in China!!! I never thought I would see the day,but China manufacturing is definitely high quality in some areas......and they are a manufacturing superpower!
My customer also mentioned they might manufacture the new TT there......

I just saw a dolphin rs6 down by ala moana today. That car is so fresh my uncle had one for a while back in Jersy but traded it in for the new porche (lucky bastard) I have been in many fast cars before but nothing compares to the way that thing takes off. That car made me want an Audi even if it only has half of a v8 bi turbo. I have pics if but don't know how to post here.

BTW that sucks that he came by this week I drive past your shop every day on my way to work but I'm in town this week. That would have been sick to see both HI rs-6s in one week. I gotta stop by one of these days I heard your the man to talk to about GIAC in HI, and my a4 needs some lovin.

I actually bought my Audi from a guy who was with you back before you had the shop, and I rock Tai vw audi plates daily. Looking forward to meeting you one day when I'm not late for work. What are your hours?

Thomas,

I'm from Hong Kong and it is part of China. I have to admit that, the China market is booming and I accompanied with Revo Mitchell and Mark to go to China last year, he was surprised by the VW and Audi cars quantity. This is because Passat, Polo, A4 and A6 is all assembled in China. Even the 3 and 5 series of Bimmer is also assembled in China and selling domestically. Don't you know, some of those Polo are shipping to Aussie to sell ??

Yep, as another HKer, I must say I see alot of 1.8Ts around, B5&B6, but I've only seen a small amount that is tuned. But then again, I've seen some sick RS4s in HK.
