Very Good Looking Car!

The gold rims and red look very well

But...in your signature, says "Zhonghua M3 1,8T AT in dark blue"

Hehe =P

I hope you enjoy it!

Bye!

Yes you are right, initial i want to buy the blue one but once i saw in real i decided to buy a red one, because this red is a very nice red and looks similar the Alfa Romeo red.

Maybe i should update my signature

Nice car. Post some more pictures of it. Where did you take this one? At dealer's shop before takeover? And are those rims factory option or aftermarket?

How does it look like buying Brilliance anyway? I mean - how many engines and trim leves could you choose from? And are they offering any options (alloy wheels, leather, navigation,...) as well?

Hi Martin_Krpan

first of all this is my second brilliance, before i owned a M2 also know as Junjie.

So far as German i really satisfy with Zhonghua and their quality is quite good, in two years driving of Junjie i never face any problems but i must admit that the engine is too weak and not very good performance for a "German" driver.

After i order and got the Zhonghua Kubao it looks little bit different, the 1.8T (Turbo) engine is quite ok but for my feeling still not powerful enough and quite some power become lost in the automatic transmission. But the design and quality of that model is really amazing, special in consideration of its cost.

To order a car, i think this is quite different from Europe and almost a challenge. In sales, service and know how China car dealer still need lot of improvements, you have not many options, no car configurator, technicial basic questions like measures of rims, PSI of turbo, fuel cut, supply chain of spare parts, third level supplier like ZF, Getrag and so on cannot be answered, therefore i did as below:

I ordered the car in red and said i want have the biggest model with 1.8T engine, 3 weeks later i got the car in "standard".

After i pickup the car i drove to a friend, he is from Hong Kong and run a garage to modify cars, i checked for suitable wheels and import them through him, he did the installation of wheels and other parts.

The staff from Greddy and others i bring by myself from Hong Kong and Germany and installed also at his garage.

The next is, i'm going to replace the standard Turbo which is also from Garrett by a Garrett GTR24, i think the intercooler should be for the moment big enough, the brakes are also nice but the oringinal engine management (chip) can be modified, i heard that there is already a modified chip (software) available but i still want to wait as i want see first the specs of it.

The think, the best way is buy the car as standard, find a good garage, get the parts by yourself and advice the technicians during the installation, at least you should have some basic theoretical technicial understanding to advise.


I add some more pictures but i have not many, later i will make some more pictures how it looks actually as well as insite pictures.

Cheers
P.
