Isn't HIN for high end cars? they are other shows for average cars...at least thats what i was told...
We were tryin to get a HIN here in pittsburgh but there aren't enough "Nice" show cars
Hot Import Nights is intended for the very best imports from each region. They screen cars before the show and make sure that you have your shit straight before you get in, and if they dislike an aspect of your car, you have to go home.
The entry requirements are different for each kind of car. Hondas need hardcore bodykits, oversized wheels, and full ICE, along with some JDM motor and lots of other goodies. It is easier (and far more expensive) to get an E46 M3 into the show. Throw some dubs on and about 100 TVs inside and your set to compete.
