Nice


Are the VWs sold in Hong Kong basically equivalent to the British model, or the Chinese?

Yes, The Passat in Hong Kong is the same as the one selling in UK which is made in Germany. I believe it is the same as the one in Japan.
The Passat in China is made in China

Nice car Terence.
Any relation to a famous racer Albert Poon. He used to race Alfa Romeo's back in the '70's. I saw him in saloon races in Macau, Manila, etc.

I know Albert Poon when I was young. He's my elder brother's friend but we're not relatives. They went race in Macau together in 70's. My bro drove a mini in the race.

Your car's pretty sweet.

Did you get your crystal projector headlamps, corners indicators & side blinkers in HK or did you order them from overseas?

Oh! $ 50 is's so reasonable! And is it made in Germany(white words) or made in Austria(orange words)?

The Germany one is a little bit longer than the Austria one . The longer one is made by Mann in Germany, the Austria one is Made by Knecht. The filter paper and the filter valve of Mann is better than Knecht. It can let the oil faster running when your car in cold condition, the Germany one can provide a better protection. The stability of quality is better than Austria. If you have intresting for this, I can sell you one for try.

Re: Terence Poon - Hong Kong (kkau)

Wow, you know much about oil filters. Thanks for your advice.

I'm using the German one currently. I'm going to replace it with the Austria one on hand soon. I'd buy the German one again next time I change oil!
