AM: So what was the first car you drove and then what was the first car you owned?
Chris: First car I drove was an old Ventura on the island of Bali at the age of 12. haha, young i know but just could resist the being behind that wheel. Also think it comes from my dad keeping me right next to his cars he use to work on. First car I owned was a BMW E36 316i, which wasn’t for long as my mom couldn’t bear to see it in my hands. Shortly after that it was my Golf 4 2l

AM: Like any car enthusiast one would assume you have done some sort of modification to your vehicle, what is it and why?
Chris: All mods have been removed from my car due to selling it soon. And all sound was stolen out my car… no surprise there.
