Hot Import Nights presented by Colab Team held the very first HIN in Australia at the Sydney Olympic Park Hall 5 and 6. It was an action-packed Sunday featuring the first ever Dance Delight dance contest direct from the streets of Japan, as well as a B-boy battle happening outside near the food truck area. There was gaming and virtual reality, a sneaker and streetwear swap meet, and of course 200 of Sydney's best modified cars - there was something for everyone at the Sydney show.

The model lounge was crazy, featuring import models from the US such as Vicki Li, Emily Lee, Ashley Vee, Coutney Riggs, Erica Nagashima and Danielle Lombard, as well as the local Miss HIN contestants signing and selling their merchandise to all their fans. The Miss HIN contest was definitely an attraction in itself. Timothy Delaghetto was also flown in to host and keep the stage exciting with HIN hostess Gwendolynne Gee. Congratulations to Melissa Grace for winning the Miss HIN Contest.

PASMAG's Tuner Battlegrounds contest was totally new to the Australian market. It was a totally new concept for Australia, so it took some time for the competitors to get the hang of the competition. In the end there can only be one, so congratulations to Clayton Pallister for winning the Tuner Battlegrounds trophy!

Tokyo Auto Salon 2012

Despite the long flights, bus rides and train rides everyone is at their fullest the instant they step out onto the bustling streets of Tokyo. Girls in maid uniforms with unnaturally high-pitched voices try to smooth-talk you into getting rid of some cash at their maid café while you try and find your hotel that’s jammed somewhere between a ramen shop and a micro-sized Jinja (shrine).
