Shinka's in Europe?

Hi,

I live in the Netherlands, and I own an imported US Shinka.

Now i'm 99% sure it's the only one in NL, but I was wondering if there were more Shinka's in Europe?

Anybody knows this?

There's been a few special edition models in England that were essentialy the same as a Shinka, but without the Shinka name. I remember the Evolve, which was offered in either Copper Red or Phantom Blue. Here's a pic:

There was also a Nemesis special edition but I think it only came in AT.

Just to warn you

I'm in Belgium now, I wont be here forever, 2-3 years probably. Don't have to have headlight cleaners here, and I have the xenon HIDs already. Do have to have the red rear fog lamp, which i have. And I will have to get a cat to pass inspection in January
