this could be a good place to enable car enthusiasts in china who don't speak chinese to communicate. There are tons of chinese language sites like this, but there are a lot of foreigners here who may be interested in chinese cars, driving, motorsport, etc.

maybe I won't be the only laowei on the track in future. what have you?

You have a good point. China is a very english-challenged country, I can't even imagine how it's like for someone who doesnt know CHinese to get around.

what am I doing in China? something to do with the engine parts business, lets say.

why am I driving a Chery? kind of an experiment. it's an interesting question, the whole Chinese made car thing. one approach is just to read a lot on the internet and spout off a load of opinionated but ill informed crap, like my mate does, the other approach is to try the experience first hand and know what you are talking about.

I also admire Chery - a brave company that continues to succeed where everyone said it wouldn't.

so far I am not unimpressed with the china car experience. it does everything it said it would do and it was quite cheap when I bought it, and they are even cheaper now.

of course I've always had a thing for unusual cars................

English speaking exporter

I have met so many Chinese staff who do export in factories. Their English is poor and communication is not good. Just offer the key of his car and let you to check by yourself. They can't answer some technical problems since sales don't know and their technical person can't understand English at all. I am worried about the after service and also long-term cooperation since factory staff is not professional enough.

This is why a lot of western people are doing nicely setting themselves up as trading agents. The chinese have good products at good prices, but a lot of the companies need somebody to interface this to western consumers.
