Congrats on the car! Great write-up. Thanks for taking the time to get it all down for the rest of us.

One thing I'll suggest is drop the money for PPF on the front clip if you haven't already. Worth every penny and you won't regret not having to look at stone chips on your new car.

Congrats on the car, and very rare there indeed. I was in Seoul and Busan a few weeks ago and most BMWs there are well equipped 3/5 series with 4 cylinders engine.

Next time I'm in Korea if I see a M2C 6mt like this I know who's car it is haha

I really hope you have a private parking spot or even better a garage because the parking situation is a nightmare, where people leave their cars in neutral and push your car to get theirs out??? OMG

But otherwise she's a beaut and really wish you all the best! I would hate for such a beautiful car get dinged by ignorant people who think a car is a car is a car.
WTF the leave car in neutral and push part is just crazy.

Cool thread. I wonder what class those M4's are built for, they look like pretty much stock street cars. Definitely not GT4 spec or anything.

Great story, and congrats on the new car!

I lived in Korea for a year between 2013~2014 staying in Yeoksam, Seoul. I work for an auto parts supplier and we had an office in Seoul, my daily commute was ~8km but ended up taking about 30mins in traffic! I also frequently commuted back and forth to Namyang to the Hyundai R&D centre for work. Driving in Korea is certainly an experience... I commend you for having your own car there, I just had a rental Veloster for the duration of my stay. And driving during Chuseok, man, I remember those highways were packed and spending hours just crawling along to get to the gf's hometown.

I really enjoyed my time in Korea and have been back many, many times, most recently in September. Even though I'm often there for only a week at a time now, I make a point of eating all the foods that I miss!

I was wondering that also, they look like street cars with stickers.

People name stuff after food all the time, don't take too much offense, I mean after all my dog's name is Waffle which coincidentally is my favorite breakfast food.

I may be white but after 5 years here I reek of soju and garlic on Friday nights just like everybody else.

Cheers!
