Surely, I have some pictures that I will upload shortly.

I've been born and brought up in Hong Kong.

Haha yes I'd have to agree with you, there are lots of Porsche's in Hong Kong and yet I never get tired of seeing them. I myself might be getting the Porsche Cayenne.

I've uploaded some pictures of the Jaguar. Hope you like them.

Lovely, lovely. Hong Kong is a really interesting place I saw a lot of cars there as mentioned. I also noticed the parking charges there are exorbitant to try and promote public transport. I didnt have a car there would you comment on that?

Hey Karan welcome aboard.

I don't know much about Hong Kong although i stayed there for 3 years. I was put up near Happy Valley on Stubbs road next to Adventist Hospital. Used to go to Bradbury school just down the road from home.

Good memories. Hong Kong was a very nice place.

Nice way to come in. Welcome aboard Karan. Thats a beautiful S Type you have there and she's been kept well. I like that blue colour. Hong Kong is a lovely place. Do tell us more about yourself and what you do.

Take a look at the rules before hitting the various sections of the forum. See you around

@quickdraw. Haha yes, the parking charges are very high. It cost me about RS 30 lacks just to get a carpark in my building. How long did you stay in Hong Kong for quickdraw?

@ Vid6639. It's good to know that people on the forum have been here. When did you live here? Happy Valley is a great place, you get to see the greatest cars of Hong Kong in that area. Hong Kong is a nice place, but it can never beat our India.

@Dippy. You might be suprised by reading this, but I'm 17 years old. Though my age doesn't stop me from being a car enthusiast. I come to Mumbai quite frequently, and we already have a Toyota Corolla there. But I want to buy a car for my own use, I'm planning to get a swift or a civic, or something else if it catches my eye. I have about a year of study to go here and then I plan to go either to the UK or US for university.

Hey Karan, welcome to Team BHP. Everyone's already said it, but saying it again- you got great cars. :-)

Saw some awesome cars in HK last year. I would stand outside Hotel Shangri-La (Kowloon) in the evenings, just looking at the cars. Stayed at Intercontinental Grand Stanford, and it had great four-wheeled visitors too. Of course, I used public transport there.

BTW, have you been to the Macau race track?

Haha yah I like doing that too, Hong Kong has a large variety of cars and it's fun to view them. Oh those are some good hotels. Well next time you're in Hong Kong let me know, I can take you to some places where you can see amazing cars from Porsches to Mayabach's.

Yah I've been to the Macau racetrack, but only did go-karting there.
