Cars are my passion and my whole life revolves around them! I started blogging about my automotive-related adventures back in 2010, and haven't looked back since! :)
@Gianluca FairladyZ I knew you would enjoy this one! :D

@LouisSoon It seems bizarre, doesn't it? I wouldn't have thought people actually drove cars around like that, but they do seem to! Just slowly and with caution haha. Anything to cause a stir and stand out!

@MattAtDoyle I know what you mean, it's such an intense place! I think you have to get away from the city and head out into the country as much as you can or you'll start going a bit crazy. In the 5th week I finally started to feel like I was 'falling into place' into 'the system' and I had to J-walk/drink some beer and eat some food on the street to feel normal again haha
Thanks @CooperMacmillan! Learning the language will definitely enhance your experience for sure.
Enjoy your trip @Dimitri A!
Cheers @demzo_BRG :)
Thanks for the great feedback@Tian90! Yes, you must start saving :)
If you go at the beginning of January you could go skiing and do Tokyo Auto Salon!
@Gianluca FairladyZ Definitely up there with one of the coolest sounding cars we've ever heard! When I saw the S4 above drive past for the first time, I know I had the biggest dorkiest grin on my face. You're right, it's truly a special experience!

Hi @JakWhite - if these features don't appeal to you, perhaps it's best to focus on some of our other content right now. The variety is still there, you can't deny that! :)

@TarmacTerrorist We recently collaborated with our partners Air Lift Company to produce an article which you might find very interesting (if you haven't already read it!) here: http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/05/know-real-history-air-suspension/
These stories might interest you too:
+ We'll have another story coming up soon where Bryn goes behind the scenes for a full tour of the Air Lift Company HQ!

@Yurisminator You don't like the ride height, or the fact that the bags exist full stop? It's cool seeing these cars getting a bit of love; this one had a certain charm about it and was getting a lot of attention at the show!
@MrSOLOMON85 These are not items we sell at this point in time, but thanks for the feedback! You can check out our store here though: http://store.speedhunters.com

@Jos Boesten I'm glad you found it helpful! Doubtful that they would've set a date for that yet, but my guess would be that it would take place around the same time. Just a guess though!

@d_rav Cheers! Trust me, I couldn't stop thinking about that the whole time I was there! Especially when I was driving my Daihatsu Move kei car on the wangan lol

@KRaZyAmmo DO IT!
@Mike_Vossen Thanks for the great feedback Mike! I'm so glad you enjoyed the story, and I'm excited for you getting to travel to Japan again! I'm going to be honest… eel is the one thing I'm too scared to eat in Japan haha. Maybe next time I'll give it a go!
@Gianluca FairladyZ Thank-you for the great feedback, it is much appreciated. I am heading to Switzerland next month and I can't wait! It looks beautiful there :)
@AdamBezzegh LOL sorry buddy:)
@somo You are right, they aren't comparable! Japan can be a real culture shock at first, but some of the things you see at Gatebil can be just as shocking! I guess it depends where you are from, and what kind of cars you're into. If you're into European cars and like the idea of seeing Volvos drifting and crazy BMWs making massive power, and if you like to party, Gatebil Rudskogen is for you. If you're more into JDM stuff then Japan should be your #1 :)
@projectaw11 Thank-you! It really does feel like you're living on an alien planet there sometimes… in a cool way though, of course :)
@Kirk_B I'm yet to drive any cool cars on my overseas adventures so far, but hopefully that will change soon :D Congrats on your upcoming wedding too!
@Nikhil_P I think it's so they're not easily identifiable when they're driving haha

@kphillips9936 Nothing wrong with a low Euro on BBSs! But each to their own, of course!
@JLast It's beautiful isn't it!
@prometheus It's had a whole lot of custom suspension work done too, so I'm sure it drives great!
@ChrisMcNamee the fact that they rebuild it every year 'just for fun' is awesome too. Scandinavian people are so crazy motivated when it comes to building cars!!
@HeatherSabin Please don't be discouraged that we didn't publish your car Heather - we still loved it! In fact, you should post your photos up here in the comments! For next time though, we'll need photos in the sizes specified above as the images you sent us were too small. The fact that you built the car yourself is also a fantastic achievement! Keep up the great work :D
@Jake Laird Yes, we get it, you don't like low cars with aggressive wheels. That's cool, but it's not our fault that you don't like certain trends in the industry that are big right now. I'm curious though, what is it exactly that you do like? Because going through our recent posts, we have something that covers almost every automotive subculture out there... surely there's something that tickles your fancy! :P
