Holiday & Redesign on CarNewsChina.com

And the mighty robot on Beijing Tuning Street says: we will be on holiday, flying down to Europe to visit the great countries of Belgium, Holland and England for business and beer. In the meantime, work will start on a complete redesign of the site. We will have larger photos, a better comment section, more social media thingies, and a database.

We will be on the move for about three weeks. Updates will be slow coming, but we are always ready to hit the boards when emergencies occur, such as a Geely spaceship or a Hongqi-based submarine.

See you all soon, take care.
