Hi from Hong Kong. I am a new owner of a 2003 Opel Speedster (VX220) She is turbo VX and fully original and I am going to keep as she is. She just done 40,000km and I love her very much. Nice to meet all VX220 owners here. Happy New Year! Adrian

Keep it away from those crazy taxi drivers in the new territories! Getting a new clam in HK must be near impossible

You say that but if anywhere in the world someone can do a replica I suspect Hong Kong is a good place.

Welcome Adrian, no need to worry about the crappy heater over in HK, but air con would certainly be a nice to have. Also make sure you re proof the roof, as you don't just get showers over there.....you don't want to spot the leak just as a monsoon rainstorm hits.
