Anyone here in Korea? If you do have one, how did you import one? Where do you go for services?


I've found this YouTube video of a Lotus owner in Korea with 340R and an Elise.

And some pictures of a white Exige in Korea.

This is 340R owner in KOREA.

:)Nice to meet you, PatrickShim.

I have several LOTUS Cars, including 340R.
I know there are 2 340rs in KOREA.
I purcheased this LHD car in KOREA imported from JAPAN.

For services, I go to both LK(LOTUSLKOREA) or other Tuning shop.
No problems. :)

And I recently bought 2-11.
So My Lotus lineup is KIA Elan, Lotus Elise2 111S, Esprit V8 Turbo, 340R
Exige S BritishGT, 2-eleven
And I am eagerly searching elise 1 and Exige 1.

Mr. Jeong,

Welcome to LotusTalk! 340Rs are one of my favorite Lotuses ever!

How hard was it to import the cars to Korea?

MY LOTUSLife in KOREA.

Hello Everyone..

PatrickShim:
Importing car including to KOREA is easy.
But total amount of various tax in KROEA is 30-40%. :-(

And I thik registration of 340R and 2-eleven will be somewhat difficult.

So refreshing to know, after having lived in korea last summer for 3 months, that there are actual good cars there! The best I saw was a hyundai tiberon with flames painted on the side, and the poor guy who owned the car caught me with my friend (walking around drunk of course) totally laughing our asses off looking at the thing - I felt bad but it was just so funny, and he was with two ladies too... lol

I do love the country there, always wondered if I ever decided to go and teach english a year if it'd be possible to take my own lotus... but here's a question, how easy is it to find premium fuel? Outside of Seoul?

Anyway nice cars dude! Go Korea :coolnana:

Awesome collection. Great video. Just had a party this weekend for a friend moving to S. Korea. Hopefully I'll be able to visit him some time in the next year.

Washbi, What part of Korea were you in??? There are tons of super exotics in Seoul, especially in the neighborhoods like Apkoojung-dong and Chungdam-dong. Also some of the residential complexes like Tower Palace are full of super exotics.

Where do you keep your cars? I see "Kangnam-gu" on the temp license plate on the Exige... Are you in the Shinsa-dong area? I used to live in the Hyundai Apt in Apkujung-dong (right by the Koojung Elementary School). I know a dentist in the area (Dr. Lee Kyu-Chil) -- his practice was in a building right next to the Shinkoo Junior High School in a high-rise building (where the Omron Korea office is and one of the Andre Kim's shop is)... any chance you know him?

I only visited Seoul a handful of times during my stay, otherwise I was in Chuncheon... not a huge city but still almost 100k I'd guess

I did go to a party with a movie producer in Seoul one night though, but they didn't have anything special there car wise, just some of their suzuki(?) luxery sedans... :(
