They seem to be near where I used to reside in Taiwan. Next time I make a stop there ( Probably summer ) I'll drop by or something.

There's a bunch of dudes running single turbo n54s. I'm not sure if it's the fftec kits or replicas of them but theres a couple different variations. The 1/4 mile is something unknown to most of them though and they normally do high speed pulls. It's mostly younger people with rich parents so their cars are always full out modded. A 335i costs like triple the price over there so that explains why most of the owners have open budgets.
Interesting. Didn't know the N54 is slowly picking up there Also those people generally import their 335i's. A friend of ours actually imported an X6 V8, and 335i N54 as it's much cheaper including taking care of certification than buying one new or used there.
