Hi JMSteiny:
Hope things are going well in the sunny south.

BYD's F3DM is available right now and private citizens can now buy them
I'm told not until September. I'm quite interested to see the public's reaction and how they will handle the plug-in recharging circumstances.

Damn, you must have some good contacts - I still thought it was this month! In any case, if they do what I THINK they will do...........many apartment complexes in China (at least in Nanning) already offer plug in areas for electric bikes.........you either pay a monthly fee or pay 1-2 rmb every time you charge your bike. The concept could be easily "expanded" to include plug in hybrid cars........for example my garage simply lays out a series of extension cords for any and all electric bikes that need them...........simply do something similar where the cars park and have an area available for plug in cars. Apartment complexes in Shenzhen are doing this already, so there should be no problem for people who buy the F3DM in Shenzhen. Other cities will have to make some small adjustments - but it's a simple solution so let's hope we see the F3DM soon on the streets of MANY chinese cities!

I used to love the banter with hater, and was a bit sad to look back in a while after leaving china and see he'd been dispatched from the forum.

I guess it would have worn thin by now though.

Just popped back in as my email indicated there was progress on one of the threads I was subscribed to, hope you are all having fun!

hey guys i think the response is low due to the unpopularity of chinese cars...most ppl either hate chinese cars or dont care about them...and until the US or EU markets start importing them seriously , till then will we see real authentic interest

You know Ash, I suppose that for americans (especially those that are or were part of the auto industry), news articles like this don't help..........http://www.newsweek.com/id/195095

I actually bought this magazine in the airport in Shanghai because of this article, I found a internet link for the article and thought all of you might find it interesting!

I don't think there's anything wrong with the response level here. Sure there are some dull moments when no one does much, but I'm always editing my posts and finding lots of new stuff. Now there are Chinese cars down here, I finding pics and info on any more brands coming down. I also understand that many of our mods have other commitments such as work, studies etc. so really, I'm not surprised that there are flat periods. Still, I like this forum and I would hate to see it die.

I'd second that emotion of yours, KiwiGuy. I'm hooked on CCF!

Add one more viewer and hopefully contributor to the forum!

Now the chinese vehicles have arrived in Australia (Great Wall V240 and SA220 - renamed Wingle and Sailor respectively), I'll be following this forum regularily.

The SA220 is the kind of vehicle I hope to purchase inside the next 10 months, I've seen the ute at the dealers and first month sales of Great Wall in Australia have been very good.

For the past 10 years I've owned Korean Cars (Hyundai Excel, Accent and now i30) and the acceptance of these cars in the Australian market is such that Hyundai is now #4 in the Australian market, just behind Ford at #3.

I believe chinese vehicles will succeed in the Australian market if continued low cost and reasonably good quality can be delivered, then negative perceptions will be gradually diminished in the same way that Hyundai has succeeded.

I also agree with earlier posts that acceptance in the Western World with Chinese automobiles is almost nil, with many websites posting negative stuff about the Chinese automotive industry. I used to be the same but I feel that many are "uneducated" in a way about Chinese cars. And don't forget, for those who live in Australia and New Zealand who post and contribute to this website, that both governments heavily import used Japanese cars of the same quality. I see it as many people making uneducated assumptions about the Chinese auto industry.

And the lack of info in English is a big factor as well.

Last year (2008) I would say that there was a 6 month period or so that I could not get to this site......and then magically one day I tried, and voila - I'm here again! It DOES seem like the activity on this forum has diminished............let's hope that it will pick back up soon.
I've just recently joined this forum and immediately noticed the lack of numbers and responses. However that's OK - it remains one of my 'always open' sites so if anyone says anything I'll nail them

I can confirm (of course - from my user name) that I live in China and have no problem accessing this site at the moment. However probably the biggest issue for us living here is the (seemingly) random blocking of servers by the Chinese Govt. They find a server with something they don't like on it and BAM ! all other sites hosted on that server are blocked too. My own site has had to be moved twice within the last year (and no it's not subversive or porn )

Looks to me like you are doing a great job Martin - hope you get more support soon. If anyone needs photos of anything ask me - I'll try and get them for you but can't promise I can or that I'll be quick !
