Hot Import Nights is the event Australia was waiting for! Since the end of Autosalon, Australia has been lacking a dedicated indoor car event. If you think the HIN brand sounds familiar, you would be right. They are the leading producer of touring automotive lifestyle events. Originating in California, Hot Import Nights is a show that has been hosted in various major cities throughout the United States.

10 December 2017 was Sydney’s turn to host the first ever Hot Import Nights Australia. In an effort to support the event, we entered our RB26 powered S15 and had a great time mixing it up with some of the best cars the scene has to offer.

It’s hard to believe that 7 days before Hot Import Nights Chook Tran’s Rocket Bunny 350Z was getting painted, and put back together. Easily one of our favourite cars from the event.

Rays Volk Racing Ce28’s and Car Shop Glow tail lights make Van’s Honda NSX a winning combination.

Refreshing to see some Japanese cult classic at events like these.

Jayson’s R33 GT-R never disappoints. One of, if not the cleanest in Australia.

Elias Hkeik’s 1M BMW sitting perfect on a set of Rays Te37SL’s. RIP Elias, we know you are watching from above.

This Veilside equipped Mazda Rx7 with what looked to be Nardo Grey paint, was immaculately presented.

The “TABOO” e46 M3 screams quality.

This is exactly how we would build an Ae86, down to the carbon guards and TE37V’s.

It’s hard to believe that Midnight purple III is a factory GT-R colour. Yet to find a car it doesn’t look good on.

Our RB26 powered S15 getting amongst it.

Anthony’s R32 GT-R looking the goods at HIN17.

This is what the best Datsun 1600 Wagon in Australia looks like. Absolutely spotless.

HIN had no shortage of quality builds riding on air. Loving the fitment!

Winry’s S15 was unveiled during the event and did not disappoint, sporting a full wide body kit, SSR wheels, custom paint and forged motor.
